Barbeque Nation is a pioneer in India to promote ‘DIY’ (do-it-yourself) cuisine with a concept of live on-the-table grill, since its first store in Mumbai in 2006. Barbeque Nation was founded with a simple vision – offering a complete dining experience to customers at affordable prices. The philosophy extended to all aspects of service and caused the chain to expand rapidly.

Across India, the chain appealed to the value conscious Indian consumer.
