Chef Sati Sharma moved to New York in 2001 and joined a small Indian restaurant group, which managed three restaurants in New York City. In 2002 he met his partner Ajit Bains and Bricklane Curry House was born. Along the way they’ve gained recognition for their take on Phall, the spiciest curry in the world.

Chef Sati and four friends thought of the concept Paratha Junction while they were out partying in New York City one night. The concept reminded them of comfort food back in India, a go to place after a big night of partying to sober up. Inevitably such joints were by the city’s railway stations, which is where the name Paratha Junction came from. Paratha is the favorite flat bread from South Asia, where every country from Iran to Malaysia have their own version. India alone has endless type of Paratha depending on what part of India you are in.
