Opulence, grandeur, and royalty — there’s an all new dining destination in the city that’s all set to send you on a culinary sojourn through India’s glorious past. Say hello to Bindaas Begum, Rockin’ Raja (BBRR) — an aptly named unique restaurant in Mulund that epitomises the unique concept of ‘royal dining’!

BBRR has tapped into the aristocratic eccentricities and created a lavish menu that preserves the colours, aromas and tastes of all the cuisines from the days bygone — and yet, has added a contemporary twist of its own for the modern millennial. From the British Raj’s Club Cuisine to true, authentic Indian Royal fare, BBRR is all set to send your taste buds into a majestically delicious frenzy. 


As a nation, India has a rich history when it comes to food, and the idea for the brand was borne out of a need to revive and exhibit that very aspect of our historical culture. The grace and magnificence with which the royal kitchens prepared its meals is on full display at BBRR, and the restaurant aims to offer a glimpse into the lifestyle that was then led by the aristocrats, nobles and prestigious royal families of our country.

The restaurant is the brainchild of Jeetendra Sonar conducted rigorous research for four years before conceptualising and launching their palatial space.

Mr. Sonar, the Founder & Director of BBRR says,

BBRR is a cult brand. It is unapologetically magnificent, radiates royalty and exudes and embraces vibrancy. Although a contemporary brand, we aim to bring you a cuisine curated almost 150 years ago from British India. It is an experiential theme that manifests the meals served during the pre-independence era through sound yet progressive culinary formats.

Talking about the concept itself, he adds,

The styling of food, choice of dishes in the menu (including some signature cocktails), and its vibrant, resplendent interior space is the embodiment of a ‘darbar hall’ of any palace of that era. The idea was to juxtapose this aspect of the past with the reality of the modern 21st century and make a sincere attempt to showcase the life that was led by the Begums and the Rajas, albeit through a young and quirky way –– and we’d like to believe we’ve succeeded at doing that!

When it comes to the food itself, the restaurant’s detailed and historically accurate menu boasts a plethora of dishes from the kitchens of royal kingdoms and families like the Kewa Datshi (poppers stuffed with cheese and potatoes; Sikkim), Kabargah (succulent lamb chops cooked in saffron milk and aromatic spices; Kashmir), Railway Mutton Curry (Colonial British India), Lon Mass (spicy mutton curry; Gwalior) and the Mahi Dum Pukht (marinated fish cooked in a banana leaf; Bengal), to name a few.

The complete royal experience involves kebab and sharaab, though, so the restaurant also serves a wide range of signature cocktails which include Royal Conjure, Begums Pride, Eclipse, Kaapi Tini.
