Top In Town Restaurants @founder Tanveer Mohammed

Younger brother of Mohammed Khursheed Jahangir Tanveer Mohammed started this chain of Top In Town restaurants from Auckland in the year 2000. Customers loved the concept and Top In Town quickly became a hugely popular and successful Hyderabadi restaurant in Auckland. This inspired Mr Tanveer to open a full service Dine-In and Take-away in Brisbane and later on in Christchurch locations, specializing in Vegetarian foods, Indian street foods, and most popular non-vegetarian food choices, including Hyderabadi cuisine.

Presently Mohammed Khursheed Jahangir owns the Christchurch location.
