HISTORY OF BRILLIANT RESTAURANT
The name Brilliant was thought of by our father Bishen Dass Anand who started a 200 seater Restaurant in Kenya (Nagara) in 1957. Our father was the chef of all chefs, the master in cooking Punjabi food with the Kenyan touch. From a Restaurant our then converted the place into The Brilliant Nightclub and opened up another Brilliant Restaurant not far from the nightclub in Nagara in 1961. We used to help our dad in the running of the Nightclub and Restaurant along with our two other brothers, however a sudden tragedy rose upon us, that was the loss of our dear father in 1970. Although we had lost our father, we did not give up and kept both the Nightclub and Restaurant running up until 1973,when unfortunately we had to abandon the whole project due to political pressure. We four brothers then left Kenya and migrated to London where each of us went our own way and started working. One aim was however at the back of all our minds and that was to open a Restaurant somehow in London and to keep the name Brilliant alive. Me (Kewal) and my brother Gulu then partnered to open a Restaurant in the heart of Southall in 1975, of course it had to be Brilliant. It started as a 36 seater, and since then we have extended it six times and here we are today a 250 seater and still growing.
That’s a little history about our little Brilliant Restaurant .......
