Bademiya opened in Mumbai in 1946 and has been running since then
A year before India’s independence in 1947, Mohammad Yaseen received about Rs.20 in funding from his religious guru, Hazrat Fida Mohammed Adam Chisti, and set up Bademiya – now an iconic eating establishment.

The Roll Company is a befitting name for a place that sells different kinds of wraps and rolls
