Motala & Sons

Tucked away off Barton Street is a bustling shop which has been serving the best Indian food to the people of Gloucester for more than 50 years.

A brief Backstory

Motala & Sons has a claim to be the first Indian Grocery in the city, and is a firm favourite with the local community. Food fans from further afield also travel to browse through shelves of spices and unfamiliar ingredients.

The shop was founded by Mohamed Motala who spotted a gap in the market in the 1960s. He established a shop which sold food for the new families arriving in the city from the Indian sub-continent, and introduced ‘the locals’ to their first experience of ingredients like cumin, coriander and basmati rice.
