Kashmir Valley & WaazWaan

“Gar Firdaus bar-rue zamin ast, hami asto, hamin asto, hamin ast.” “If there is heaven on earth, it is here, it is here, it is here’’

A famous quote by Mughal Emperor Jehangir when he visited Kashmir in the 17th century.

By the Grace of India and Lavendra family, we bring you a new restaurant, experience and menu inspired by WaazWaan – the legendary 36-course banquet feast embodying Kashmiri’s proud history, tradition and heritage.

The history of the banquet feast began in 14th century India. During the reign of Nasiuddin Muhammad of Tughlaq dynasty came the invasion of the Mongol ruler Timur. From Samarkand, Timur brought excellent cooks to the valleys and mountains of Kashmir. These skilled cooks were named Wazas. From twilight to dusk, the Waza’s cooked meat and gravy into different styles of dishes in preparation for a 36-course feast. The Sanskrit and Persian immigrants later coined this feast WaazWaan.

We are excited to bring rare hidden gems of the Kashmiri delicacy to the forefront of Sydney’s North Shores. Here at WaazWaan, we will experience the depth of India’s traditional craftsmanship of culinary excellence.
