Our Story

Restauranteur Kedar Subedi moved from Nepal to India when he was 14 years of age. He has now amassed 27 years of hospitality experience, working in restaurants across the world. He has gained his reputation in Delhi, Dubai, Essex, London, and Bristol.

He came to Bristol because of the city’s drinking and dining culture – and after working as a senior chef for seven years, he opened his first restaurant in 2019.


Indian and Chinese Restaurant, established 2019

RockSalt—Indian and Chinese Restaurant, established 2019

RockSalt opened just before the pandemic, during which its takeaway service reputation grew rapidly. Since, Kedar and his experienced and balanced kitchen staff have created a fantastic and curated service system, with a palate of authentic Indian and Chinese dishes as well as staple Asiatic classics. 

RockSalt’s friendly front of house team have a wealth of hospitality experience. With a long and varied wine and whisky menu, as well as a range of classic cocktails, we offer a dense and textured experience of drinking and dining.

Join us at our opening hours from 17:00 until 23:00 Tuesday to Friday, 13:00 until 23:00 Saturday, and 13:00 until 22:00 Sunday

Harbour Hub

Tapas Restaurant and Cocktail Bar, established 2022

In 2022 Kedar turned to the harbourside as the location for a summer-based cocktail bar and restaurant. HarbourHub offers beautiful waterside views, a garden built for the sunny summer days or cosy sunsets, and a range of food and drinks.

HarbourHub focuses on smaller tapas dishes, with original cocktails. Its reputation is beginning to snowball as Bristol’s harbourside becomes more popular as a walking, drinking, and dining up-and-coming area. Visit HarbourHub for a drink and some light plates in the sun!

HarbourHub is open from 11:00 until 22:00 everyday.

Golden Crane

Japanese Whisky and Cocktail Bar, established 2023

In keeping with Kedar’s Asiatic hospitality experience, his next project began in 2023. Taking over a basement venue previously owned by local trip-hop group Massive Attack, Kedar now owns Golden Crane.

Golden Crane is a high-end Japanese Whisky Cocktail Bar. It specialises in sophisticated cocktails designed by a team of hospitality staff with decades of experience.

It has a relaxed and down-tempo atmosphere; the team burn incense and play trip-hop in keeping with the history of the building, making sure all of the customers are finely looked after.

Try out our original cocktails from 5 until 12:30 on Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday, and 5 until late on Friday and Saturday.
