Welcome to WAZA
(Authentic Kashmiri and Mughlai Cuisine)
Waza is a Authentic Mughlai and Kashmiri food Restaurant chain from which people will take back flavors and tastes of the glorious food of the vastly diverse richly blessed Kashmir. The Kashmir's would not have even dreamed off that their cooks, in coming times will be making history of their own. Each one of the we ensuring a stirringly sumptuous culinary adventure. The Food we prepare is considered an art and a point of pride in Kashmiri culture & identity.
While working on the name for our business, we concluded that the name we eventually chose should be one that symbolizes the goals we seek and the values we cherish. Our brand name “WAZA” draws inspiration from the “WAZWAN”, an elaborate, multi-course meal comprising of 36 delicacies considered by the people of Kashmir as a core element of their rich culture, heritage and identity.
The tradition of Wazwan was inherited from the artistic cooks who had settled in the state during the time of the Muslim rulers under the Mughal Empire in the 15th century.
The preparation is traditionally done by a “Vasta Waza”, or Head Chef, with the assistance of a court of “Wazas”, or Chefs.
The word "Waza" is therefore a reaffirmation of our vision, and a reminder of our commitment to preserve the authenticity and identity of the traditional Wazawan while maintaining the highest standards of quality, hygiene and customer satisfaction at all times.
