The Sampan has Anchored in Westwood


Another new restaurant just opened in Westwood, Oldham. The Sampan is based in Anchor Mill on Featherstall Road, on the corner which was previously a take-away. The restaurant opened at 5.00. but we had a preview earlier that afternoon. It’s a family run business serving traditional Bangladeshi food and we spent some time chatting with three young members of the family who would be leaning the trade and working as waiters. They told us “its a boat” when we asked about the shape used as an emblem. Right. Sampan. got it. They have gone for a very neat and clean look and the bar is enhanced by natural wood fixtures, made by a family member for the place other decorations include a ship’s wheel with more nautical motifs to come. The finishing touches are still being applied, but this is how it looked a couple of hours before kick-off.

A WamaVamaLamaSaki Launch Party


Vamasaki  Oldham hosted an open evening/full blown launch party with entertainment and nibbles galore last night.

It was by invite only and somehow we got invited!

Following on from the opening of their new restaurant near mumps just over a month ago Vamasaki held an event to introduce the diners of Oldham to their new place. There was a terrific singer Natalie, dancers outside were twirling and hula-ing with hoops illuminated by coloured lights and sometimes fire! Our favourite Bollywood dancers, Panache were there too. It was very entertaining. The place was packed, with quite a number of regulars from the “old place” at Grains Bar turning up to enjoy the occasion and had a fine time too.  It looked great – here are some pics.
