“We're rocking out a menu that covers what the people want: Tandoori Chicken Crostini, Punjabi Spiced Fried Fish and our super popular Goan Pork Curry,” explains Nakul Mahendro of Badmaash. “Badmaash is pushing a wave that’s changing the way people think about indian food and culture... the same way that Dylan, McCartney, and the others did in their time. Badmaash means "badass" in hindi... so it’s only natural that we rock out with our (curry) pots out. These are some of the biggest rock legends of our time - like Triple-OG-Legendary-ROCK-GODS! After we serve our last plate, Arjun and I are trying to get to the field as fast as possible... watch out for the big bearded indian guys rolling over on anyone in our way. Dylan because of his style and *fuck the man* attitude, the Stones because they are DRIPPING swag, and Paul McCartney because The Beatles.. that’s what Badmaash is about.”
