馬友友印度廚房 - 背景故事 Mayur Indian Kitchen - The Story Untold
To be a chef, one has to love food, the ingredients and possess a strong understanding of cooking techniques. And this has to come from a very early tender age. And what better place, than home. I was disciplined and Inspired by my mother, and started making breakfast right from a young age.
The Journey from making small breakfasts to complete meals for the family grew to a new dimension, thanks to culinary skills imparted to me at Delhi Hotel Management School and various 5-star kitchens like the Taj, Oberoi, Marriott, Westin, etc. In 2006, I got the opportunity to work with a large hotel in Taipei, Taiwan, and shifted to Taipei City.
Every great story has a humble beginning. Such was our brand. In 2008, I opened my own food stall at the famous Shilin Night Market of Taipei. And Like every new entrepreneur, I faced hard challenges and setbacks, but I gathered my thoughts together and understood the reason why I was not able to attract customers and reimplemented the revised idea at the same place... BOOM... Endless Customers visiting my store and appreciating my food.
The first real established shop of Mayur Indian Kitchen was in 2011. MIK-1, a small home food store near Taipei 101, attracts a lot of customers daily. The concept of home cooking was adopted to a commercial shop and was accepted readily by the local population. The appreciation grew day by day, helping MIK establish a series of restaurants across various places in Taipei, Hsinchu, and Taichung. Today, as you read this, Mayur Indian Kitchen has transformed itself from a small roadside store to the largest chain of Indian Restaurants and Grocery Shop in Taiwan. And the secret to Growth: Don't forget where you came from, Stay Humble and work on your strengths. Don't look at what others are doing, but concentrate on how you can get better each day.

Mayur's Made in India story
We started when we see our beloved Indian prime minister 'Mr. Narendra Modi' took the initiative of 'Make in India' concept to boost manufacturing in India, devised to transform India into a global design and manufacturing hub, & also creating awareness about Indian products or the products made in India at the International market. This initiative also creates jobs within the nation and that time we asked ourselves, 'How we can contribute into it as an Indian citizen!? Why there is no service like Amazon or Flipkart for Indian Groceries in Taipei, Taiwan!?' Expanding on this question, we asked how can we use technology to eliminate mundane tasks like grocery shopping to give our customers time to do more fun things.
