Our Story

Welcome to Burns Road Food Street, where the journey began with a heartfelt migration of our ancestors from Delhi, India to Karachi, Pakistan. Settling near Burns Road, our ancestors found a place they called home. Burns Road became famous for its mouthwatering dishes, and a beloved spot for food enthusiasts.

Fast forward to 2015 when we started our journey in Canada. We recognized that people not only miss their families but also the food cooked by their mothers, the parties they have with their cousins, the BBQs they enjoy during wedding parties, and the breakfasts they share with friends on weekends. We initiated home-based catering so that workers, students, and families could savor the taste of love amidst their busy day-to-day lives.

Today, we’re thrilled to extend our legacy, offering the same delicious flavors, and rich history. With seven years of experience in home-based catering, we understand that food is more than just nourishment—it’s a connection to home and family. That’s why we’re committed to ensuring that every guest, whether local or newcomer, feels embraced and welcomed.

Our vision is simple: we’re not just about food; we’re about people. We want every individual and family who visits Burns Road Food Street to feel relaxed and content, enjoying not just delicious meals but also a sense of happiness and belonging. Join us in creating memories and moments of joy in your day-to-day life.
