Our story


Owned by the small, but fierce CEO, Zaiya, managed on her behalf by her parents, Reena and Henal, we established the café’s birth in 2015.

Living just 10 minutes walk away from the cafe, we wanted to create a local place for the community of Harrow & beyond to come & enjoy not just the food, but also a relaxed place to visit. All 3 of us were born in Harrow; this has made it even more special to have Red Cup Café located where it is, in the heart of North Harrow.

Henal has studied & been in the hospitality industry for 25+ years; he has experienced various roles, ranging from Kitchen Porter to Deputy General Manager. He is an active member of UK Hospitality, making sure that the concerns of small, independently owned food businesses are raised & shared.

Reena has had a varied career, from retail sales of luxury fragrance, skincare and health foods, to being a Personal Assistant to an award-winning Interior Designer. Underlying all these, is her great passion for fantastic customer service, as well as her love for creating new & exciting delicious dishes.

Both Henal and Reena are Proud Hospitality Action Ambassadors.

Why Open Red Cup Café ?

We see the café as an extension of our home & hospitality. We believe a unique place, where food, loaded with love & atmosphere blend together to create smiles and magical memories.

We both love food, which helps, & want a creative menu with homemade dishes full of fresh & interesting flavours. The ability to express ourselves without being held back & adding personality was a driving force to unleash our hospitality to Harrow & the world !

In 2020, since March, we took a step back and spent quality time together as a family and also looked at how to reinvent & come back better, stronger & in a safer way. We’ve made a few enhancements to key areas, whilst also improving the overall feel of the café from the moment you enter. We are a different way of dining. We serve food … with a purpose.

We want your visit to be both a happy & memorable one, enjoy Red Cup Café version 2.158 !
