My chisel 

I Kamlesh Jugaldas Barot, was born on 26th September, 1961 and achieved my commerce bachelor's degree in 1981 from Mumbai University. Got my merit card from Dadar Catering College (I.H.M.C.T.A.N.) for being the topper in my Food Service Management class, of March 1984.

My career

My uncle and father, Shri Ishwarlal and Shri Jugaldas Barot respectively, came to Bombay from Palanpur in 1947 and started a small restaurant in the busy commercial area of Crawford Market, Bombay (400002). They earned reputation far and wide for ‘Ishwar Bhuvan’, our first south Indian restaurant, for five plus decades. My foundation was cast here. It was a landmark in South Bombay for its trendy fast food, till it reformed to 'Rajdhani' in 1989. 

I gained a brief retinue also at Fair Price Fabrics, a linen store owned by our family at Mangaldas Market. 

With characteristic foresight, after my IHM, our family acquired an operating  ‘Hotel Rajdhani’, our first 22-room business hotel in Baroda, around mid 1984. Under my stewardship, Hotel Rajdhani which started on 25th August, 1985 enjoyed 90% occupancy and it’s restaurant aptly named ‘Ishwar Bhuvan’, became famous all over Gujarat, for it’s Gujarati Thali.

My hobbies - gardening, pets, hospitality, electronics and music were enriched with life membership at the St. Zavier's college - Indian Music Group and my referencing at the British Council Division library, since 1972 as well at IHM Dadar. A Radio Officers Course at Radio Electric Institute in 1979, brought out the electronics whiz in me. Kaivalya Dham membership had taught me Yoga, since 11 Jan, 2003. A short course on Taxation in 1978 and introduction to DOS computing in 1987, my notes are referred till date. My membership at the Microcomputer Users’ Club way back in 1995 and their BBS kept my tech quest satiated, while it helped us to be among the first few hotels to provide free email to check-in guests then (at my Revival Hotel, Baroda).

During my tutelage in Baroda from 1984 to 1991, I became an active member of the Baroda Hotel Owners Association and carried out many activities that brought glory to both of us. It paved way to my FHRAI Presidentship in 2012.


My business journey

Just as popular fashions dictate taste, so do food habits. And in 1989, the old Ishwar Bhuvan, Bombay, running into its 42nd year, was ceremoniously redecorated and renamed ‘Rajdhani restaurant’. After serving our daily "only Gujarati" menus, in the Thalis till 2000, Rajdhani's refurbishment and introduction of regional cuisines, like the Rajasthani, Maharashtrian and the Kathiawadi Thalis, we created a niche for our trendy and authentic food with our patrons, our connoisseurs of parallel Indian food, then. We Barots, had not only put Gujrati cuisine on the map, but in doing so had amply paid back a tribute, to the land of our birth.

What really turns a restaurant into a legend, is the quality of it’s location, food and service. I always believe that ambience is generated from the visibility of the owner's soul in the outlet, with his/her interactions.

Encouraged with every enviable success, we moved on to newer ventures. In 1991 we opened ‘Revival’ - Bombay’s most glamorous vegetarian restaurant & bar, in the prestigious sandy expanse of Chowpatty, Bombay. The restaurant featured 1920’s Art Deco architecture and interiors.


Revival's first floor housed the main restaurant with a hundred covers being spilled over at times into the ‘Rainbow Room’ above, when there were no parties hosted there. The terrace, an expanse of greenery christened as the ‘Roof-talk Terrace Garden’ and later as "39B by the Bay" overlooks the bay of Bombay with a fall back of the landscaped Malabar Hills. It houses 80 persons. There are 'Privilege Card' holders from this elite restaurant today too, while it boasted to be the only Eco-aware independent restaurant in this country.


I was awarded The Young Restaurant Entrepreneur award for Revival, Chowpatty from the Federation of Hotels & Restaurants Associations of (FHRAI), among all India applications. The award was presented on 30th September, 2004 by Mrs. Renuka Chowdhury, the then Hon. Union Minister for State for Tourism, in the presence of dignitaries from the hotel industry.

From 1995 to 2001, as monopoly caterers, we took over the catering of the Garware Club House at the Wankhede Stadium, Bombay for the food & beverage activity of the club at their banquet halls, restaurant and permit room, along with the 25 residential rooms, card room, billiard room and pool-side counters. All outlets of the club were revamped and brought up from the standard of an inefficient canteen to a full-fledged elite fine-dine restaurant. The cuisine spread from non-vegetarian Indian to Chinese to South Indian to Chaats to Tandoori to fast food snacks and breakfast items. Celebrity cricketers were catered to during the matches, in the BCA's back-of-house. 

In 1998, we launched our 3 star modern business Revival Hotel in Baroda, splendidly located, over-looking the well manicured Sayaji garden with 52 rooms and a one suite property, along with rooms for the disabled and non-smokers. This property won the prestigious “Environment Champion of the Year” award in 2000-2001 as runner up, and again in 2001-2002 as the winner, from FHRAI amongst one to three star hotels, all over India, within two years of operations. Revival Hotel was also accredited the ISO 9001:2000 by Jas-Anz of Australia and New Zealand, the first hotel property in Maharashtra including Bombay, Chattisgarh and Gujarat of the western region of India, to get the ISO 9001:2000 certification.  We also conceptualized a hotel school by the name of Revival Tulip Hotel Training School in this hotel.


In 1999 I started the Stir Academy of Bartending at Revival, in partnership with Mrs. Shatbhi Basu. An academy of it’s kind in India, which taught students the finer details of flair bartending, with audio-visual and computer aids. Is still a sought after school run now by Mrs. Basu, not only for bar personnel but also amateurs and career appreciation enthusiasts. Stir students today are working in the top most restaurants, clubs and hotels, all over the world.


In May 2000, we franchised for the first time, to a silver thali restaurant “Aamantran” which served five different cuisines of India namely, Rajasthani, Kathiawadi, Maharashtrian, Punjabi and South Indian. Housing a 120 capacity banquet hall too, this restaurant is located in the plush environs of Alkapuri, in Baroda.


In March 2001 another first time, we franchised outside India. “Revival, The Indian Restaurant”, a 80 cover restaurant with an attached bar, at Ly Thai To Street, near the famous Hon Klem Lake in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam that was launched with the “Mangharams”.


We also were the F&B overseers in 2006 to a mammoth 450-bed top-of-the-line Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital, at Chinchwad near Pune. Fortis Hospital in Vashi followed, us catering for their patients, doctors, staff as well as the caregivers.

The Revival Tulip Hotel Training School started on 7th January 2002 steered by industry stalwart, Dr. Ajit B. Kerkar, offering certificate courses in Front Office, Food & Beverage, Housekeeping and Food Production at our Revival Hotel, Baroda, Revival hotel's management contract was signed with Dr. Kerkar. Ours was one of the few Schools, which showed students an actual working hotel, rather than creating an illusionary simulated situation, difficult for students to grab. Ultimately the students graduating from the school got absorbed in the six plus properties of the Barots, as well as those of the Tulip Hotels.


Revival was entrusted the job of overseeing a symposium for the cloth merchants of S&Y – Kohinoor Mills in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from the 30th January 2002 to 3rd February 2002. We curated the event and I executed the setup there, with Malay chefs and produced Indian food for 250 businessmen, under stringent alien conditions.


In September 2003 we put together a new hospitality venture down under as “India Quay”, an Indian food non-vegetarian restaurant at Circular Quay, over-looking the "Sydney harbour" in Sydney, Australia with Mr. Paresh Pandya.

From July 2006 we took to exclusive food & beverage administrators of WIAA (Malabar Hill Club) serving a blend of food from all their outlets to the elite of its members. The Eskay club at Borivali also came on a similar platform. 

I and my wife Vandana successfully conducted the food preparation, service and presentation arrangements for a marriage function of 2500 people for the President of Gem & Jeweler's Association of Thailand - Mr. Surendra Patel’s daughter at Bangkok, in December, 2007.


After restaurant franchises, we first time franchised our accommodation operations to a hotel in Lonavala, which was re-furbished with the new boutique look in June 2003, as Swiss Resorts. An annexure addition with the operational take-over of this property in 2006-2007, raised the inventory of this property from 22 rooms to 55 rooms. Our accommodation arm, with the addition of Lonavala franchise, saw our group's room inventory go up from these 55 rooms, plus 53 of Baroda, 50 rooms in Mahabaleshwar, 100 in Silla Goa, Calungute, 50 in Sriperumbudur, Chennai, 150 rooms in Chinchwad, Pune and 50 in Kerla taking the total to 500 rooms, re-christened later as Citrus Hotels in 2011.


On 27th June, 2004, at the Inrobit Mall, Malad, we franchised our second Rajdhani in Bombay to my classmate, the Maheshwari's family. Located in this plush mall, amidst the food chains of the world, from day-one this restaurant has serpentine queues outside the entrance door, all day long. This restaurant was replicated at Oberoi Malls, Goregaon for the Maheshwari franchise. This partnership saw in April 2006, a new sub-brand - Rajdhani Snacklets initiated at the Infinity Mall and Fame adlabs of Andheri, Malad and Kandivali. A first Thali outlet in the UAE with the Maheshwaris and Sallas, brought an hitherto unknown Barot signature service style to the discourteous Dubai food-scape. We did banquets too with them at a Malad in column-free above school setup. From 2011 they moved on.


From April 2005, our bustling brands hither to expanding ourselves, got the owners of our franchised Swiss Resorts, Mr Omprakash Goenka interested and we both setup Encore Hotels. Having interacted with each other first at the Garware Club House, we got committed to a roadmap of creating an icon in hospitality with our Encore brand.


Nirmal Lifestyles Mall, at Mulund saw Rajdhani, as well as Fine Dine co-exist in the same mall in October 2005, with a first-time concept of interactive cooking, by restaurant guests on a visible kitchen. With a state-of-the-art flair lounge bar with the help of Mrs. Shatbi Basu and our modern kitchen, this restaurant had a unique 360° ambience, for our suburban patrons.

Institutional catering wing at Encore was initiated by us at the Billabong School (Kangaroo Kids) Thane, Fazlani’s, RBK and Hill Spring International School. Office catering was done at Anand Rathis. A central kitchen - commissary was setup at Sewri in July 2008.


These accomplishments post 2005, were not achievable without the unstinted efforts of the state-of-the-art corporate office setup by us at Lower Parel, with the two thousand seven hundred plus team members hand-picked by us, for all Encore outlets or the hundred and twenty plus corporate team members.


Rajdhanis with Encore, was setup and path-breaking operated by Barots, from Indore to Pune, Mumbai Central Railway Station to Spenser’s in Inorbit, Bangalore.

Before taking over as President of HRAWI and Vice-President of FHRAI in September 2010, I held various posts as the Chairman of Office Matters sub-committee, Human Resource Development, Infotech and Gujarat State Co-ordination sub-committee, when I had brought about an organization of the then modern office Secretariat for the Association.
