About us


We serve a menu created from European and Indian cuisines with a large pinch of Bengal. We make our 100% vegan food with fresh natural ingredients and minimum waste so it’s good for you and the environment as well as being delicious.

San Mahanta started Thenga Cafe in 2015 after his travels in India inspired him to eat and see food differently. Instead of eating at a desk, he believes it’s important for people to take time out and relax over a healthy meal. It’s no mistake that the cafe is in YMCA’s London yoga and pilates centre, as San believes that good food and community help people live healthier lives.

Our head chef is the talented Nippa. Strongly influenced by her Bengali culinary heritage, her food also includes Mediterranean elements from 17 years living and working in Italy.
