Bhagat Tarachand by Shreya Shah Design

Bhagat Tarachand, a popular and age-old fine dining restaurant, gets a makeover with contemporary and chic twist.


Designers at Shreya Shah Design took a conscious effort to incorporate their deep rooted elements effectively throughout the space

The area consisted of two spaces, the indoor restaurant mains and the entrance porch which is segregated through a subtle and balanced color palette of warm and cool. The indoor area is washed with earthly colors resembling the Indian spices. The walls have laser cut panels all around the borders to enhance the existing niches. The circular canvases reflecting the Indian art and culture are specially curated.


"Bhagat Tarachand saw its humble beginnings with a stall way back in Karachi, in 1895. The legacy was endowed upon and has been passed down to generations of the current day. The design therefore had to be kept buzzing for the resounding success in the league. Bhagat tarachand being a fine dine restaurant, this is the first ever time it is creating a fusion with contemporary interiors. A lot of elements which are deep rooted in the history are brought out in a very contemporary manner. It is not every day that one gets to be a part of the story, of a legacy that has been created over decades. The history of bhagat tarachand is interesting enough to be unlocked for people and is precisely covered in our dramatic graphic walls of the indoor area."- Shreya Shah Designs

The history of Bhagat Tarachand is interesting enough to be unlocked for people and is precisely covered in our dramatic graphic walls. Each of these lights are handmade in woolen threads with poppy colors emphasizing our vivid and dynamic culture.


The outdoor area is driven more towards a contemporary style breaking through its routine from the indoors with a glass screening. Green landscape, glass ceiling and wooden paneled walls keep it cool while the vintage windows keep the values intact.

One of their specialties being the buttermilk, designers have used cups, tall glasses and beer like bottles (in which they currently serve) as elements which are stacked in our signage glow box in the entrance. An enlarged version of these bottles are curated and installed on the indoor walls too.


"We've highlighted the Indian craftsmanship and artisans through the varied materials used.  Wood, fire bricks, jute, printed Upholstery and laser cut Jalis is juxtaposed with metal, mirrors and glass which draws itself out in the entire space.  Each of the lights are handmade in woolen threads with poppy colors emphasizing our vivid and dynamic culture.  The facade is cladded in decorative fire bricks and mirror creating a contrast.  The tall 9 feet door which marks the grand entrance of the House of Bhagat Tarachand is detailed with Marine MDF which is laser cut in layers. The sleeper wood draws clean and chic borders helping the intricate details to stand out. This arched door gives it a very classic style backing the legacy."- Shreya Shah Designs

"Seating arrangements in a fine dine like Bhagat Tarachand play a very crucial role. During the day, the commercial crowd or the locals walks in for a quick lunch meal; while in the evenings, people walk in in large groups for a family get together. Hence the arrangement has to be such where table configurations can be changed while joining or splitting them. Varied number of groups or people can be accommodated without waiting too much"- Shreya Shah Designs

"We've been very grateful for the humble and positive responses not only from the customers but also the client who let us do our job and experiment our skills without a doubt. The space reflects the love and effort that went into making the same. And hence it is reflected in the customers too."- Shreya Shah Designs
