Nafisa Kapadia’s son Munaf was done watching his mother monopolize the TV at home, and in a bid to put her extraordinary culinary talent to good use he decided to have a few friends over for lunch. Only these ‘friends’ were paid guests and the ‘lunch’ was a 7-course Bohri meal around a thaal which was to become the first ever TBK home dining experience.
What started as a small project slowly turned into a mini revolution where Nafisa aunty’s smoked mutton kheema samosas and 2 day marinated raan suddenly became a hot topic amongst foodies across Bombay. Few mentions in newspapers, blogs, radio and TV channels later, TBK became Bombay-famous..
12 months later, because of the love that all of Bombay had showered upon The Bohri Kitchen, we garnered the necessary courage to take up the gigantic task of making Nafisa aunty’s food available to people across Bombay in the comfort of their own homes by opening our first ever delivery outpost in Worli..
Since then our founders have found themselves on the cover of Forbes magazine and a reality TV show, and numerous TV shows and news channels. The Bohro Kitchen is now a 2-time winner of the Times Food Award, a recipient of the Midday Rising Star Award (Midday The Guide, Restaurant Awards) and we’ve expanded to 4 delivery outlets-Worli, Bandra, Juhu and Lokhandwala and a quick service restaurant at Flea Bazaar Café at Kamala Mills. We continue hosting our home-dining experience every weekend at Colaba.
