ABOUT US

Copper Chimney is an ode to secret recipes and cooking techniques from across Undivided North India. Founded by JK Kapur in 1972 in erstwhile Bombay, Copper Chimney serves up a flavourful melange of its signature Indian dishes, flavours and ingredients to deliver an unforgettable dining experience.

OUR STORY

During the Partition of India in 1947, Mr. JK Kapur migrated to Bombay from modern-day Pakistan. He always wanted to share with the city the culinary experience reminiscent of his years growing up near the North West Frontier Province.

In November 1972, 25 years after he first landed in this new city, his love for the food took shape as the first Copper Chimney in the heart of Bombay.

Every detail, from the even heating of custom clay ovens, to the creation of distinctive spice blends showcases the skills of our 'Ustads', our trained master chefs who were trained under JK Kapur and have perfected over the years, the art of preparing and presenting dishes that are simply unforgettable.

Over the past 4 decades, Copper Chimney has taken millions of guests on a culinary journey exploring and celebrating Indian cuisine, culture, and flavours.

ROLLING BACK THE YEARS

Our first location in Bombay in 1972. Copper Chimney was then the first restaurant in the country to showcase an open kitchen with its live grills, hand made breads including its signature handkerchief thin bread, the Roomali Roti.
