Our History

Culture of Care: Discover the Paakashala Difference


The culinary journey that would lead to Paakashala begins with Shri KN Vasudeva Adiga’s parents, KN Nageshwara Adiga and KN Saraswati. In 1965, they started Brahmin’s Coffee Bar, serving 5 now-iconic dishes. Smt. KN Saraswati’s delicious chutney and other recipes laid the foundation for the family’s legacy.

In 1993, Shri KN Vasudeva Adiga transformed Bengaluru’s dining scene with “Adiga’s”. His innovative take on the darshini model offered quick service and hearty, home-style vegetarian cuisine. This expansion built a Bangalore food empire, growing from 1 to 25 locations.

Shri KN Vasudeva Adiga’s contributions were nationally recognized, with Forbes India highlighting his blend of tradition and entrepreneurial spirit. A significant investment from New Silk Route (NSR) in 2012 fueled further expansion for the “Adiga’s” brand. Throughout this growth, the focus on fresh, clean, and delicious vegetarian food remained paramount.

A New Chapter

Later in the 2010s, Shri KN Vasudeva Adiga embarked on a new venture, fully separate from “Adiga’s”. In 2018, he founded Paakashala. This beacon of vegetarian multi-cuisine excellence embraces tradition while looking to the future.
