Toronto’s favorite North Indian and Pakistani restaurants are back in business.
Lahore Tikka House has announced that their restaurant is reopening for takeout, delivery and curbside pickup on May 29.
Before the pandemic, Rumah Lahore Tikka was primarily a dinner location. It will be filled with customers and very busy so there are 45 minutes waiting for a table.
Owner Gulshan Alibhai said his restaurant must now completely rediscover the way they serve customers.
Gone are the days when large families in groups of 30 would arrive, write their orders on the board, and hand them to the front register. There will also be no server.
Instead, the restaurant installed Plexiglass to separate employees from the public, staff used gloves, masks, and provided disposable menus. They put up signs to remind customers of the rules of physical distance.
“We need people to know that we take this seriously and there is nothing to laugh about,” he said.
Since closing, his team has been working on new changes when the restaurant finally reopened for dinner.
Restaurants will focus more on takeout services and self-delivery rather than using UberEats and other food delivery applications. Lahore Tikka House will also launch an application where customers can order on their website as well as expand to provide catering services without contact.
Little Indian restaurant closed the door on March 23 after worrying that their food – which is made fresh every day and is ready to be served, will be bad. “We don’t want to compromise on the quality of our food,” Alibhai said.
Their reopening fell a week after Ramadan and Eid ended in an effort to prevent large crowds from gathering at the establishment for their reopening.
“The reason why people love the Lahore Tikka House so much is because the energy of the crowd is coming,” he said. He added that he would miss the meeting – from the milestone celebration to the wedding – but hoped that they would return in the near future.
“The Lahore Tikka house is not just a restaurant, but it is a restaurant that builds social capital, it helps new Canadians find new jobs and is also an institution that has.”
