New “Chipotle-style” Indian food concept coming to 16th Ave. this winter

Another option for a quick, grab & go bite to eat is coming to campus in January.

Rollz Rice, a restaurant that’s considered a “build your own Chipotle concept, but for Indian cuisine” by the owner, Kailash Chughwani, is opening their second location right by Target, at 16 E. 16th Ave.

Rollz Rice offers customizable bowls and wraps but with an emphasis on authentic Indian cuisine at what Chughwani considers an affordable price. “This is one of the first concepts like this in Columbus, and it’s even a very new concept for Indian people who are used to more traditional restaurants, where a meal can cost around $18,” he said. Their wraps and bowls cost around $10.99.


Another way Rollz Rice is breaking Indian tradition is by offering a variety of vegan options. “There are a lot of vegetarian options in Indian food, but there is now a growing vegan population in Columbus, and we’ve geared our menu towards the vegan population,” said Chughwani.

Along with options like chicken, goat, or fish Tikki Masala, those who abstain from meat and dairy can choose proteins such as chickpeas, cauliflower, and spiced potato. Other twists on classics include Masala french fries, a Naan taco, Masala fish & chips, and seekh kabab hotdogs. 

Chughwani said their newest concept will include all of the familiar favorites, but they’re going to add a bar due to the ongoing requests for Indian inspired cocktails. He said they’re planning on serving mango margaritas, Indian versions of mojitos, plus much more.
