About us


Thenga serves a daily changing menu created from European and Indian cuisines with a large pinch of Bengal. We make our vegan food with fresh natural ingredients and minimum waste so it’s good for people and the environment.

Our vegan lunches are a blend of mini-dishes (thali) in one beautiful platter. The flavours of these dishes complement each other in a comforting, healthy and delicious meal.



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 relax and socialise over a healthy lunch. 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.
