Mr. Suraj Kumar came to Washington, D.C. from Punjab, India, first working in restaurants in New York, Austin, and Denver. Mr. Kumar and his wife Sudesh have been in the restaurant business for over 20 years, 12 of the most recent in Maryland.
The Kumar family came to the Annapolis area in 1992 taking over the Indian restaurant on Main Street. After a fire destroyed the restaurant in 1997, Mr. Kumar, his wife, son Raghu, and daughter Rozy opened the newer location on West Street a little more than a year later. The superbly trained chef is a nephew, Zeenat Bhanot, who excels at preparing wonderfully delicious fare.
