HOW IT ALL STARTED
In 2005, two friends got together and discussed the idea of opening a small deli that would provide fresh salads, pastas and sandwiches to people with the desire to have healthy food. After much deliberation and hard work, the dream was realized in 2007, when a small outlet opened on First Zamzama commercial lane.
The immediate response was highly encouraging so much so that within a span of one year, the small outlet expanded into a full fledged restaurant. With little knowledge of running a full scale restaurant but lots of intuition into what makes a great dining experience, The Deli set out to offer its guests an experience they wouldn’t soon forget, which included generous portions and inventive menu selections. All dishes are made with the freshest quality ingredients and served in a warm, casual and comfortable atmosphere.
Today, The Deli Restaurant continues to be led and inspired by the spirit of innovation, quality, passion and commitment to excellence.
