Classic Indian for Lunch Buffet
I was out for lunch the other day with my friend Bob. He suggested Classic Indian restaurant on Wissler Road in Waterloo. I hadn’t been there in years. Their lunch buffet is a diversity of healthy, delicious and imaginative dishes, unlike any other Indian Restaurant in Waterloo Region. We had a great lunch.
Thiru Maran is the owner of Classic Indian Restaurant. He always had a passion for cooking and all his hard work finally paid off when graduated from a hotel management school in India in 1979. He later moved from his hometown, Chennai (Madras) to Mumbai (Bombay), so he could undergo training at the Taj Mahal International Hotels. After a couple of years training, in 1981, Thiru landed in Zurich, Switzerland, for his Chef’s papers, something very similar to a cook’s diploma. After getting his chef’s papers he moved again, but this time to the Middle East. It seemed now he was ready to get working and so he did for the following sixteen years. He worked in some of the leading catering establishments in Baharain, United Arab Emirates, Sultanate of Oman. Thiru felt he was ready for a new challenge, so he flew to the United States in 1998. In US, he became part owner in a restaurant named, Saffron at Litchfield, Connecticut for two years. Finally, he migrated to Canada in late 2000. Within months of landing, he opened a family business in early 2001, in the name of Classic Indian. This vast and varied experience, from six different countries has been an added asset to the continued success of this family friendly restaurant.
