Rampur was a comparatively a smaller Royal estate in the foothills of Northern India adjacent to Nanital. The rich spicy taste of delicious Rampuri dishes at times leave behind The Awadhi, Kashmiri, Mughlai or Hyderabadi dishes. It’s true that the name of THE ROYAL CUISINE OF RAMPUR is not as famous as the name of other famous cuisines, but the rich aroma, spicy tongue twister of Rampuri dishes will compel to forget all other.

Rampur can be best explained with taste. It is also known for its non-vegetarian dishes. Even though the city is forgotten in this fast world, but the recipes stand alive with their unique characteristics of aromas and taste. The distinct taste is brought in by the use of special herbs and spices in the exact proportions and cooking the dishes on low fire in special traditional utensils, as told to us by Chef Mujeeb Ur Rehman.  Chef Rehman has been associated with, providing consultancy to five star properties like J W Marriott, Oberoi, Hyatt, Hilton, Radisson, The Park, The Lalit, Intercontinental Group and many more.
