It all began with our founder father, Yajna Narayana Maiya, starting a restaurant in Bangalore. He fashioned his restaurant after the restaurants in Europe, high on standards and hygiene. His mission: to serve traditional food at its purest and most sumptuous.
For his restaurant, he would personally choose his ingredients directly from the market. He believed in zero wastage, so he made just enough food for every meal freshly, without over producing and serving it later. He also introduced a system wherein customers could scrutinize the kitchen anytime to satisfy themselves of its hygiene. His drive for holistic, healthy practices lead him to distribute small booklets on health, proper eating habits and recipes. The special flavours you enjoy at Maiyas can be credited to the authentic recipes of our founding father. Today, he is known as the inventor of Rava Idli.
