Arun worked with us at KSAR Hospitality Pvt. Ltd. in our first entrepreneurial venture "Greek Food & Beyond" as a Kitchen Consultant. He has flair of turning vision into reality. He beautifully translated our concept into a feasible menu with articulate planning. He acted as a support during our opening time and trained our staff in recipes and plating of the menu items. He is sincere, creative and one who you can trust with your ideas. It was an absolute pleasure to work with him and I look forward to an ongoing relationship with him.
All the very best to him for all his future endeavors.
We hired Arun's company for complete menu planning, menu designing, recipe development, documentation, kitchen designing and various other things. He has great knowledge of F&B industry and we had a very good experience working with him. In short, once you engage Arun and his team on a project, you can be rest assured that you will move in the right direction. Not only will Arun guide you on the best practices, but will also inform you about the business landscape itself and how it is evolving. Technically brilliant with a hands-on approach to task without losing sight of the people element, I like Arun for his work attitude.
Arun is highly dedicated F&B consultant, the kind that pursues deep understanding of clients' needs in order to deliver required solutions. I strongly recommend him for any future tasks and wish him all the best.
I worked with Arun to launch a new concept “Mute Health Bar” in the Indian market and from our first interaction onwards his inputs were very valuable. He is very professional and fun at the same time. He was very helpful and open to share his experience/contacts at different stages. A great listener, he understands your needs thoroughly and surprises you with certain outputs. I highly recommend Arun to anyone who is planning to enter F&B business.
When I decided to open a food joint I realized I will have to and should hire a food consultant and started short listing consultants on google and was trying to find like minded and crazy guy for my place "The Rolling Joint"
After meeting a lot of consultants I met Mr. Arun Chanda and after the first meeting got the feeling he is the one for my crazy project "The Rolling Joint".He is very clear in his thoughts and has the knowledge and his team is just fantastic to work with.He has the experience and the expertise to make it the way you want it.All this was possible as he is a very genuine person. And as we worked together our bonding got stronger and and we have already started working as an extended family for the companies and the extended business.
I hired the services of Mint for redesigning the menu of our existing restaurant "MOETS Shack" in Defence Colony. They came up with a brand new menu concept which is rustic global fare. The names of the dishes are so unique and the dishes are just perfect which they finalised. They helped us source the correct chef to prepare the dishes and even helped with outsourcing the complete cutlery, crockery and glassware. The customers are appreciating the dishes now at the restaurant. The reference they gave us for building our website was the best. LimeTray, I think ours is the best website by using MINT's suggestion.
Superb company to work with. Professional, ethical and un-intrusive. These guys not only know what they are doing, they do it very efficiently and without giving any grief to their clients. Highly recommended!
