Rajan Omprakash Mehra Managing Director, Baujee Ka Dhaba said that the idea of organizing this Bada Khana came from the thought of how soldiers on the borders have their meals. “For the jawans (soldiers) celebrating the spirit of Republic day is all about cooking and eating together. It was from these jawans that I got inspiration to do Baujee Ka Bada Khana and to find out what our jawans love to eat. I went to Wagah and Hussainiwala borders,” he said.
Mrs. Anupama Mehra, Vice President adjoined that Baujee Ka Bada Khana serves to all those Indians having feeling of patriotism in their hearts.
The ambience of Baujee Ka Dhaba is like a small world of village from ancient era, folk art décor surrounded with mud walls, mitti ki lipai on the floor, paintings of rural people, khana in big old fashion patilas & big thaals. In this environment everybody enjoyed surely originality of the Indian theme & old Hindi Classics. The staff cooked and served food wearing ‘Bawarchi attire’ to give a real Indian touch.

ABOUT BAUJEE KA DHABA
Atithi Devo Bhava is what Baujee Ka Dhaba believes in, showering the blessing and warmth to the people. Baujee Ka Dhaba’s “Baujee” name arrived from Lt. Shri Om Prakash Mehra, popularly known as “Baujee” in old age and in the year 1998, “Baujee Ka Dhaba” name was brain stormed by his loving grand daughter Ms. Tisha Mehra.
This was an effort of Baujee along with his elder son, Rajan and daughter in-law Anupama and younger son, Rakeysh, which was received gracefully by God’s grace.
Baujee wants to portray this Dhaba on the paths of Shahjahan Puri Hotel (near fatehpuri Masjid) pre-partition India. Rajan, the man behind the delicacies of North West frontier at BKD today, carries forward the legacy of his late father, Baujee, with great pride.
