Bajeko Sekuwa’s story started about 4 decades ago with its founder Mr. Dinanath Bhandari. During a visit to the airport, he realized the scarcity of places to eat around the area and realized the potential for a food business. With the help of his beloved wife he started serving mutton BBQ on the streets outside the airport. Soon everyone who tasted his recipe instantly fell under its spell and this humble street vendor and his mouth watering BBQ became a local sensation.
Being from a Brahmin descent with an aged textured appearance, his customers fondly started referring to him as Baje (grandpa) and his small BBQ stall became widely recognized among people as Bajeko Sekuwa. As it was illegal to operate any business around the airport and the irresponsible eating habits of some visitors littered the area in food wastes attracting a lot of crows which hindered the flights. After repeated run-ins with the authorities and having to move around a few times, the struggles of his parents prompted Mr. Chetan Bhandari to toil in search of a stable establishment for the family business.
With their first eatery in Sinamangal junction, began the journey of a multi-chain family restaurant which has become one of the most successful and recognizable brands in the country today. We are proud that “Bajeko Sekuwa” , the name alone makes one’s mouth water just as it did all those years ago.
