Balbir and Harmeet Bans, founders and owners of Bans & Bans GbR, opened their first Indian restaurant in 1996 under the name AMRIT.

The family business has been run by the Bans brothers ever since.

The company has been in a state of change since 2018 in order to be able to hand over management and business bit by bit to the next generation.

In honor of our parents
Family always comes first

Without our parents we would not be where we are now. Almost all of the basic recipes for Indian cuisine in our restaurants are based on our mother's recipes.

Our father gave us the blessing and gave us all the strength and support to be successful in Berlin with an Indian gastronomy concept.

Mum and dad, our greatest thanks & respect go out to you.

The history of the RESTAURANTS AMRIT

1996
Restaurant Berlin Kreuzberg

The Bans brothers fulfill their dream and found their first Indian restaurant under the name AMRIT.

AMRIT stands for original Indian dishes of the best quality. Although there are many Indians in Berlin, you will not find an Indian restaurant that can guarantee so much space and still so high quality.

1999
Restaurant Berlin Mitte

In 1999 the brothers opened the next Indian restaurant in the Berlin Mitte district with the support of their family. In the meantime, AMRIT has made a name for itself in Berlin.

If you feel like having traditional Indian cuisine, go to the Amrit restaurant. From day 1 until today, the two brothers are working as a part of the amrit team.

2003
Restaurant Berlin Schöneberg

This has proven itself because four years later Balbir and Harmeet Bans can open another Indian in Berlin Schöneberg.

Coincidentally, Balbir worked for a long time in front of his own restaurants in Schöneberg on Winterfeldtplatz and learned to love the area. At every opening of the Indian restaurants, even the parents of Balbir and Harmeet come to Germany directly from Mumbai to express their blessings for the business.

2013
Restaurant Berlin Potsdamer Platz

Also at the opening of the flagship store directly on Potsdamer Platz, where another Indian restaurant opened in 2013, "Papa Bans" gives his blessing and smashes a coconut in the entrance area of ​​the restaurant.

This ceremony should give positive energy for the future. The Bans brothers have made a name for themselves in Berlin with four Indian restaurants and are therefore known to have the best Indian restaurants in Berlin.

Principles of success
Entrepreneurial attitude and responsibility

If you want to achieve something, you have to know what your goal is and you have to pursue it with iron will. The family plays a fundamental role in this because it provides support in difficult times. Constant change, inner will and perseverance are the success factors that have made our companies the leading Indian institution in Germany over the past 20 years.

Today we are grateful that we have become a big part of the German-Indian friendship.

Indian specialties
High quality products and perfect service

Chicken Korma and Butter Chicken are still the most popular Indian dishes for guests, but vegetarians and vegans will also get their money's worth in the Amrit restaurant. Since Balbir and Harmeet themselves also live vegetarian and most Sikhs (original religion of the family) are vegetarians, you can experience and enjoy the best selection of vegetarian cuisine at the Indian AMRIT. Convince yourself and try the Indian delicacies for yourself.
