Indian Garden

Rezaul Karim, founder and owner of Indian Garden. Born in Bangladesh in 1975 and came to Sweden 19 years old.

Even as a child in Bangladesh, he showed a great interest in cooking and spent much time alongside his mother in the kitchen.

The older he got the more he explored the Bengali and Indian cuisine and began to create his own culinary creations.

Once in Sweden, he worked on a number of popular Indian restaurants in Stockholm.

A few years later, he had the opportunity to open his own restaurant, the first Indian Garden.

It has been a success story with a lot of hard and creative work behind,  and now there are six restaurants in Stockholm.
