Munaf Kapadia, the man who quit his job in Google to open a restaurant, recently got featured in Forbes’ 30UNDER30 list. 

Munaf is an MBA from Mumbai’s Narsee Monjee Institute and was employed at Google when an entrepreneurial idea hit him. He quit his job and opened ‘The Bohri Kitchen’ in the heart of Mumbai.

As the name suggest, they serve authentic Bohri cuisine and are famous for their smoked mutton kheema samosas and two-day marinated raan, notes India.com.

Apparently, Munaf was frustrated of seeing his mom, Nafisa, spending the entire day watching soap operas. He wanted his mother’s cooking to reach the entire city. So, he sent a mail to his friends saying that they could eat at ‘The Bohri Kitchen’ with food made by their mother that Saturday for a price.

It was an instant hit and word spread of the delicious food served at TBK. And in under 2 years, TBK has a turnover of 50 lakh rupees. 

TBK operates twice a week on Saturdays and Sundays and offers a 7-course meal consisting of an assortment of starters, main course, dessert, condiments and beverages. It also boasts of celebrity customers like Ashutosh Gowariker, Farah Khan, Rani Mukherjee and Huma Qureshi. Munaf dedicates his success solely to his mother and her amazing cooking skills.
