Sometimes a chance meeting can change your life. That was the case back in 1999, when Irishman Sean Collender happened to go for a delicious dinner at the Kyber Tandoori restaurant in Dublin, where Shoaib Yunus was manager, and a match in foodie heaven was made.
Forteen years ago, their joint restaurant venture Kinara opened its doors in Dublin. Today they are proud to say they operate three very successful ethnic restaurants clustered in and around Ireland's capital city.
As anyone who has had the good fortune to eat in one of their restaurants would tell you, the Kinara group strongly believes in staying true to the traditional flavours and tastes of Pakistan.
All of their chefs source the best produce and only use Halal meats in all three restaurants, a decision which has helped win them a large and enthusiastic following in the Pakistani community in Ireland.
The background to the Yunus-Collender collaboration is filled with their true dedication to quality food.
