FLavors from HIstory
The journey of our biryani started in Saharanpur, UP India and was known as Peshawari Hotel. This led us to many exhibition such as Aligarh University exhibition, Chandigarh exhibition, Ajmair Shareef India exhibition which occurred yearly. This journey ended in India when it got divided into Pakistan in 1947. Our new journey began in 1952 known as Café De Khan..
We took part in an international exhibition held at Karachi in 1954. We participated in the Australian world expo in 1988 held at Brisbane, where we introduced Indo/Pak food. The only North American fast casual restaurant is located in Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto, Canada, serving authentic delicious Indian and Pakistani BBQ food for the past 13 years.
Today, Café De Khan family of restaurants include fast casual and quick serve restaurants. For almost two decades, Chef Tariq Bashir, a Minnesota native and lives in the Twin Cities. His idea was to launch his Café De Khan concept in Minneapolis by starting a much needed tasty Biryani. The Minneapolis lunch and catering service will be his first US location. For now, his Shandar Biryani will be an exclusive delivery service only. Prepared fresh daily in a MN Health Department certified, licensed and insured commercial kitchen based near downtown Minneapolis.
Our hope is to start a Quick Serve restaurant with its own full kitchen to make Café De Khan's Shandar Biryani a household brand with a variety of menu choices to serve the Twin Cities. For now, we will sell and deliver lunch boxes at a variety of grocery stores and offices around the Twin Cities.
We hope you enjoy our Biryani and share your honest feedback. Thank you.
