Our Story

It all started in 1993. Joginder and Swarnjit Shah were brand new to British Columbia and settled in a small town just outside of Vancouver called Maple Ridge. This was a long time ago, and most of BC hadn’t experienced truly authentic Indian cuisine. One thing led to another, and GM Restaurant was opened for business.

Using only fresh ingredients and the recipes taught to Joginder by his mother back in a tiny village in India, and staying true to the idea of an honest day’s work, they grew that small restaurant into one of the most iconic, famous restaurants in the province.  All that said, countless awards and endless praise hasn’t changed what took them from that humble beginning to now: a dedication to quality.

After 25 years, we are now giving you the chance to bring that dedication into your beautiful homes. Our very same spice blends, perfected over decades, served every day, packaged for you. We create all our blends in the very same restaurant kitchen that we create our food in. The highest standards of cleanliness with access to the very same ingredients has given us a chance to make something beautiful.

Our same spices, our same soups, our same teas. Come taste what makes GM Restaurant so special. Come taste amazing.
