Dhaba by Claridges has for long been considered a game changer in casual dining experience of common Indians. The restaurant was founded 29 years ago to bring the essence of a common dhaba inside the hotel in much suave manner to the urbane consumer.
The restaurant is famous for its nuanced décor which creates an ambience of an authentic Dhaba at a plush location. Along with this is a varied menu.
As of now, Claridges is running its Dhaba at three prime locations in Delhi & NCR. The restaurant has earned many accolades and awards over the period.
Talking about the recent development, Nanda said, “Dhaba By Claridges is a brand built out of the love it has received at The Claridges. We are excited about handing over the legacy of the brand to Azure Hospitality. Our relationship with them and its founding members goes back to The Claridges’ era and we are proud that our product will be handled by one of the best hospitality chains in the industry. Azure Hospitality has a great vision for Dhaba just like The Claridges Group.”
Co-founder and Director of Azure Hospitality, Kabir Suri added: “The Indian food industry is undergoing a revolution in terms of experimentation with diverse cuisines. Azure is focused on being at the forefront of that change and acquiring ‘Dhaba By Claridges’ under Azure Hospitality is a step towards strengthening our position in the Indian food & beverage (F&B) sector.”
“The investment from Goldman Sachs and Max Ventures for our company has further allowed us to aggressively execute our strategically planned expansion and has helped entrepreneurs like ourselves to make our most ambitious dreams match India’s massive consumer scale and tremendous market opportunity,” Suri further stated.
