No longer will patrons at Britannia be told that they’re too skinny and they must eat more. No longer will they be persuaded into ordering ‘something sweet’ to end their meals. No longer will they hear tales and be shown photographic evidence about how the Queen herself has written Mr Boman Kohinoor a letter. Mumbai’s most beloved nonagenarian, Mr Boman Rashid Kohinoor, senior partner at the iconic Britannia & Co restaurant passed away earlier today. He was 97 years old. Mr Kohinoor will be remembered for his love for Queen Elizabeth and the royal family, whom he had the chance to meet in 2016, thanks to a little help from the Internet. ? @athulprasad . . . #britannia #bomankohinoor #mumbai #britanniaandcompany #britanniaandcompanyrestaurant

All of his dishes were loved by the people, and so was he. People visiting the restaurant and went back not only for the delicious food that was served to them but also for the hospitality and the care that they received by Boman Kohinoor himself.
