Indian Bistro Opens in Victoria

Mr. Kamaljit Mroke opens his family’s Indian restaurant brand, India Bistro, on Wharf Street at the foot of Yates, Victoria, because of the rising popularity of Indian food.  Mr. Mroke says, “We feel there has been a demand for Indian food in Victoria. It’s a big market here and I think what we bring is something that the people will like.”

The Vancouver-based company runs 12 restaurants under various names with family members on the Lower Mainland and in Kelowna. Mr. Mroke had also run a handful of eateries in Washington, but closed those to be closer to family in Vancouver, where they expanded under banners Palki, Dawaad, Chatney, Handi and India Bistro.

Mr. Mroke takes over one of the bigger restaurant spaces downtown with 140 seats, and is confident he can make it a success. The key, he believes, is in the way the traditional Indian dishes are prepared.

While most Indian restaurants use clay pots, or tandoors, to cook flatbreads, meats and vegetables, Mr. Mroke says, “Most use natural gas to heat them. India Bistro uses charcoal, which is the traditional method to bring out an ‘authentic taste’. This is the way it’s done in India and the way it should be done here; I think this is what sets us apart from others.”

The Victoria location includes many of Mroke’s signature items, such as table dish warmers that keep food hot and eye-catching braided cutlery.
