Olive Bistro: European Bar & Eatery

In an exclusive chat with Restaurant India, Shaaz Mehmood, Owner, Olive Bistro unveils his new restaurants and cafe.

Olive Bistro: European Bar & Eatery

My partner Shiraz Mirza and I have opened two restaurants in Hyderabad in partnership with AD Singh. The first one is Olive Bistro, a casual European all day bar and eatery and second restaurant that we opened early this year is an all day Bombay Irani Cafe & Bar called Soda Bottle OpenerWala.

How was the response so far?  What types of cuisines are there at your restaurant?

The response at both our restaurants has been quite overwhelming. At Olive Bistro, we offer an all day comfortable and delicious European menu serving soups, salads, sandwiches, burgers, our signature thin crust pizzas, pastas, mains and dessert. At Soda Bottle OpenerWala, we offer an all day menu of Parsi and Bambaiya specialities like Aloo Aunty's Vegetable Cutlets, Chicken Farcha, Dhansak, Berry Pulao, Sali Mutton and Bombay Street food such as Vada Pao, Bohri Kheema, Chicken Cutlet Pao, Sheekh Parantha and many more.

What are the difficulties that you encountered at the initial stage?

Hyderabad is a very challenging market and it has taken quite an effort for us to mould the palate of people here. Our initial challenge was to handle the guests craving for spices and biryani.

According to you, what is millennial view on today’s food?

Markets are responding very well to comfort food served in a friendly environment with impeccable service standards.

Do you face difficulty in managing the logistic chains at your restaurant?

We do experience a level of issues, but nothing that our teams are unable to solve within a stipulated time frame. My team and I work very closely with logistics; hence we are able to overcome obstacles quickly. I believe that everything can be achieved by hard work and persistence.

What is your target growth for the next fiscal?

We have some exciting targets set, but we're unable to share the same at this point.

What is your expansion plan?

Expansion is always on the cards, however at present we aim to stabilise our new baby, Soda Bottle OpenerWala post which we look ahead.

What is your plan for future?

To keep evolving in the F&B industry and we hope our restaurants to share our passion for good food with Hyderabad.
