THEY are not twins but look strikingly similar. Their working styles are different, but both mostly think alike. This is the brother duo of Inderjeet and Jasmeet Banga, on the Delhi’s F&B scene since 2009, as owners of Pirates of Grill and Prankster.

“Food was something that was passed on to us by our parents, and it’s in our blood,” says Inderjeet, the elder one, adding, “Our father and grandfather were extremely good cooks, and through them began our love affair with food.”

The brothers lost their father when Inderjeet was 12 and Jasmeet was just nine. While Inderjeet had to jump into work just after his graduation, Jasmeet joined him some years later, and together they worked on everything from managing their agricultural land to running different businesses like construction and handicrafts.

“But there was always an urge to do something that would make us happy, and that we could pass on to others. So, in 2009, we launched Pirates of Grill, after taking a year to research and conceptualize it. We were lucky enough to get the best team on board. In the first month itself, our outlet would get a long waiting line,” adds Jasmeet.
