That's right — Kabir Singh and GJ's love letter to Fitzroy is trading in its humble abode for a bigger (and better) venue. Following its wildly successful run at its current locale for the past three years, the dynamic duo have jointly reached the decision that it is time for Mukka to move on.

Just a few strides away from its original location will be the much-loved Indian eatery's brand-new spot, still residing in the familiar surrounds of Brunswick Street – and this shiny new outpost is decked out to impress.

Mukka will reopen in its new home on Saturday, December 2, with a grand unveiling followed by a party worthy of the Bollywood big screen. And the celebrations won't end there — the restaurant will also be doing a week-long deal offering 50 percent off of your bill when dining in.

But what can you expect from the new-and-improved Mukka? Following its relaunch, the now 100-seat venue will feature more vibrant decor, a sleek charcoal grill for Mukka's newest menu item — chargrilled kebabs, a five-metre-long feasting table, a dedicated function space and Melbourne's first-ever Bollywood-themed bar.

The returning restaurant will don (not to be confused with Don, the popular Shah Rukh Khan-starring Bollywood film) a colourful fit-out starring 1300 kilograms of carefully selected decor from India, as well as a mural dedicated to honouring the iconic Bollywood film, Sholay, attached to its extravagant bar.

As for its menu, you'll find all of the punch-packing dishes that Mukka is known for — including its hearty curries and enticing street eats — alongside inventive spiced cocktails and some new chargrilled specials. Plus, there will be an additional slow-cooked champaran meat curry available only for pre-orders, as well as two individual lunchbox-style tiffin boxes (a Tradies Tiffin and Sheila's Tiffin) reminiscent of the ones popular across India.

You'll find the new-and-improved Mukka at 366 Brunswick Street in Fitzroy, open from 5:30pm to 9:30pm every Monday to Thursday and 5:30pm to 10:30pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, with a lunch service from 12pm to 3:30pm on weekends.
