Out of the blue

If you are into Indian food and have a social conscience, head to Blue Gulabi next Monday (June 1) for their $10 curry buffet. I can’t comment on the food, except to say friends like it, but I do like the restaurant’s concept of a monthly fundraising day which will see 10-15 per cent of all profits donated to the SHE Rescue Home.

The SHE Rescue Home was established to protect and rehabilitate children who have been sold into prostitution in Cambodia. According to a UNICEF survey, Cambodia has about 55,000 young women and girls who are trapped in sexual slavery and of these 35 per cent are under the age of 16.

Local PR Katrina Witham says Blue Gulabi is like a little cafe but the food is completely homemade Indian. Katrina recently had an event to raise funds for the SHE Rescue Home and is also going to volunteer over there at the end of June. Well done Katrina!

Blue Gulabi owner Gomi Chendi says she is passionate about giving back to the local community so on the first of each month the restaurant raises funds for a selected not-for-profit organisation.

Blue Gulabi’s home-made curries are made from recipes that have been past down by Ms Chendi’s family from generation to generation.
All participants in the $10 buffet on Monday will be given a complimentary entrée and dessert. The shop will be open from 11am until 9pm.
