Potstickers & Curry Bar

In 2019, Pemba Bhatia and William Frowd asked “why don’t we open a Tibetan Curry restaurant in Campbell River.  We’ve operated successful restaurants elsewhere on Vancouver Island and we can do it again. Community Futures thought why not?

Pemba Bhatia is a highly recognized Tibetan chef that specializes in curries, dumplings and Asian cuisine. She has appeared three times in “Eat Magazine” and has also appeared on the Food Networks’s “You Gotta Eat Here.” Moving to Campbell River from Victoria, Pemba and her husband decided to create a take-out kitchen where she will be serving gluten and dairy free curries and Tibetan Potstickers. The reviews are rolling in and the restaurant is quickly becoming a local favourite. The food and service is great. You will not be disappointed to visit Pemba and experience the curries first hand.

Thank-you Community Futures for all of your assistance through our business start-up. The staff is excellent in communication and we truly appreciate your assistance in looking after all of the details. We so enjoyed the interactions of dealing with a group of people that are friendly, cheerful and have a ‘can-do’ attitude. It goes a long way when a business is getting off the ground and fitting all the pieces together.
