An evening with Zorawar Kalra, Founder & Managing Director, Massive Restaurants Pvt. Ltd.
Perfecting the science of molecular gastronomy with India’s spice and flavour, Zorawar Kalra is a name that commands respect in the Indian hospitality industry. The face of Massive Restaurants, Mr. Kalra proudly tells the tale of a brand that majestically owns and operates trendsetting and critically acclaimed restaurants.
We recently spent an evening trying a few dishes at Farzi Cafe talking about food and how dishes have evolved over the years with Zorawar.
Counted amongst one of the youngest, most successful restaurateurs of India, Zorawar reinvents Indian cuisine with his strong business acumen and a rich heritage spanning over four decades.
December 2012 was a milestone for him, as it saw the launch of Massive Restaurants Pvt. Ltd., which in its first year of operations won over 19 prestigious awards under various categories. Zorawar Kalra has also been a judge on Masterchef India Season 5.
Reviving Indian cuisine and now putting it on the global food map, he holds the recipe for success, delectable food and humility. With a Master’s in Business Administration from Boston’s Bentley Business University, his proclivity towards path-breaking edible creations hails from his genetic love for food.
An entrepreneurial bent of mind and the new encyclopaedia for all things food, he has ostensibly studied the Indian food & beverage market, introducing some of the most genre-defining restaurant concepts India has ever seen.
Our favourite remains the multi-award winning, critically acclaimed, revolutionary modern Indian bistro Farzi Café, best described as a gourmet experience, amalgamates traditional global cuisine, with Indian influences, contemporary presentations, culinary styles and an ambience with the aim to bring Indian cuisine, back “in-Vogue”.
It is close to my home, and it always delights our guests whenever we take them to the City Walk outlet. Pretty much everything on the menu is nice but we suggest trying as many starters as you can. We find them always innovative with the way the ingredients are combined.
