About Me


Who I Am

Tina - The Samosa LadyHi there, I am Tina, or better known as the ‘Samosa Lady’.

Since starting my venture I’ve introduced home style Gujarati food to the community of Ottery St Mary. Offering a variety of different flavoured Samosas at the monthly community market as well as my popular coriander chutney.

This small beginning now includes Bollywood Nights, fine dining experiences, monthly ‘Passage to India’ evenings and the Ottery Family and Food Festival, culminating in the cook off with Saira Hamilton.

When the opportunity arose to establish a new business in the centre of Ottery, I realised it would able me to develop the private events, cookery schools and the ‘Virtual Pop Up Takeaway’. Allowing me to also sell my products and other Indian cooking supplies, such as spices, different rices, flours etc.

The Restaurant

Samosa Lady ShopThe restaurant will be open Thursday to Saturday 9.30am to 4.30pm (Fridays 9.30 – 6pm), offering light Indian snacks and a cup of chai, using my family chai masala recipe, which you can enjoy on the premises, surrounded by the smells of Indian cooking and ambience. Or you may instead purchase chilled weekly special curries, pickles, chutneys, rices, breads and my famous handmade samosas with many different flavours to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.

I will continue using and supporting local businesses and local produce where possible. And I would like to thank the community for all their support and encouragement I have received since starting this venture.
