HISTORY

Our history

We shifted to Residency Road in 1982. During those days there used to be a Raina News Agency at the same place in a building in the ground floor owned by a Kashmiri Pandit. I wanted to purchase a hall in the building for my restaurant and for that I had to pay rupees one and a half lakh. Since I could not afford that much of money then, I purchased the hall in partnership, plus I raised loan from J&K Bank. I started the restaurant on a small scale, but I worked very hard for its success. I would personally remain in the kitchen from seven in the morning till twelve in the night.
The restaurant became so famous that it remained swarmed with customers all the time. Not only the local customers visited us, the foreigners and VIPs would make a beeline. Then came the days when Bollywood starts ordered food from our restaurant from the hotels they were staying in the Valley. Let me tell you ours was the only restaurant in the town that would remain off on Sundays, because of the heavy rush on other days. But unfortunately in a fire accident in January 1996 the restaurant was gutted and suffered huge losses. By that time we were financially sound so it was not a big problem to restart our business. Besides I raised some loan from bank as well as some well-wishers. We gradually increased the space of our restaurant. And then, we went for the bakery section in the ground floor in 1992. There also I really worked hard and now you know there is an overwhelming customer response to our bakery. I have got three outlets at Dalgate, one at Residency Road, one at Bye-pass, one at Bemina, one at Zabarwan Park, one at Tangmarg and one in the Sulaiman Complex.
Then we have the Grand Mughal Darbar Restaurant at the Residency Road. We are providing employment to over 250 employees presently whose salaries vary from Rs 3000 to Rs 10,000 and more. We have a factory unit at Khonmoh. We have bagged Best Cook of India certificate. I have myself done a diploma in preparation of English, Continental and Chinese foods. I always continued with my cooking job and I myself analyze the food before serving it to the customers. I believe a kitchen is the heart of a restaurant or hotel. The owner himself should be expert in handling the kitchen. And the hard work I have put in has really paid. We have received the appreciation certificates from the IGP Kashmir, State Protocol and so on. We have got registration from the J & K Tourism in 1982. Then we are also the members of Kashmir Hotel and Restaurant Association since 1982. And then, we are the members of the Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry and All India Hotel Association for the last three years. Besides, we have received several other certificates for the best food, the best quality and the best service. Wherever there is a VIP function, be it in or outside the state, our food is always preferred.
