Columbus Indian eatery Rollz Rice Indian Kitchen is making plans to open a second location, according to a recent permit filing. As detailed in the permit filing, interior renovations will be performed at 1892 N High St.
What Now Columbus spoke to Rollz Rice owner Kailash Chughwani, who shared that the second location is targeting a January 2024 opening. The fast casual eatery’s current location in Lewis Center at 724 Polaris Pkwy has been open since 2019. Chughwani shared that the High Street location is ideal, due to its proximity to OSU, and believes the fast casual model and price point will be popular among the student population.
The second location will be housed in an 1,891 square foot location, with seating for around 45 people, including at the bar space. While there are plans to offer beer and alcohol, Chughwani said the cocktail menu hasn’t been developed yet. When it comes to the food offerings, the menu at the second location will feature all the same items available at the Lewis Center eatery.
Rollz Rice Indian Kitchen works on a build your own model, with multiple bases to choose from, including a wrap, basmati bowl or salad bowl. The fillings include a variety of proteins like chicken, goat, fish and plant-based fillings like chickpeas, cauliflower and potato.
Each bowl or wrap includes the option to add on items such as lettuce, cucumber slaw, and pickled cabbage, with sauce choices that include curries, chipotle, tandoori ranch and more. Other menu offerings at the eatery include wings, a chicken lentil soup and sides such as masala fries.
