Bombay’s Irani cafés welcomed all – rich businessmen, sweaty taxi-wallas, poor students, families and courting couples. They began as tea-shops set up by immigrants from Iran around the turn of the last century. Open all day, every day, democratic and affordable, they faithfully served the community. But from almost 400 at their peak in the 1960s, now fewer than 30 remain. We draw on the heritage of these cafés, and our all-day menu pays homage to the food of Bombay.
Working with us
Our people are as unique as we are. We don’t just hire anybody – we seek out those who stand out as being special, interesting, and different. But one thing we all have in common is our genuine warmth and love of people, which we’d like to think shines through in the way we treat our guests and one another.
Our cafés are busy and our standards are high. You should only consider applying if you enjoy being challenged. In return, we offer fantastic opportunities and great benefits.
