Empress Market is a Pakistani kitchen in the Eat17, market hall on Fulham Palace Road, Hammersmith. 

The menu is a celebration of Pakistani food, a combination of family recipes, street food and a nod to modern London lifestyle! We serve classic Bun Kababs & Roti Rolls along with spicy stews reminiscent of Pakistani street food.

Eat in or take away, come down to enjoy some healthy & homemade Pakistani street food!

Empress Market is now on Ubereats as well :)

About me

My name's Numra and I am the founder of Empress Market, a British-Pakistani food start-up.

I want to share a modern appreciation of Pakistani food and culture in London, the city I call home. I describe it as Pakistani folk cuisine, food with a depth of flavour that brings people together to create community.

In 2014 I quit my job as a documentary researcher at the BBC and opened the street food stall, Bun Kabab. I've trawled the street food hawkers of my parent's childhood in Pakistan to introduce an authentic Karachi Bun Kabab to Londoners.

In 2017 I opened a restaurant pop-up in Hackney, introducing my Pakistani home-cooking. In fact this was the first time my grandmother's recipes had been written down!

I also host private parties and themed supper clubs centred around my love for food and storytelling.

The Empress Market street food kitchen is in the new Eat17 market hall on 77 Fulham Palace Road, Hammersmith, W6 8JA
