"GANGOTREE - The
House Of Designer Sweets, Chaats & Savories in Bangalore
since April 1986"
- the name is synonymous with designer sweets and chaat in
Bangalore since 1986. Gangotree, known for quality sweets and
chaat, has been instrumental in launching various new
varieties of sweets and chaats.
H.M.Sethia, who is also
a film maker, (who made the super hit film like "Jab
Jab Phool Khile") started
this venture in 1986 with their first shop
"we offer quality and hygienic food and snacks at very
affordable prices. We emphasise more on quality and tasty
food than our outlook. Among our customers are lots of
film stars, political leaders and sports personalities,
besides business community".
Gangotree is coming up with fresh
fruit juices and milk
by next month. They presently house almost 500 varieties of
sweets. Gangotree caters for marriages and parties as well.
Most of their customers include families and the student

Raj Sethia, who has now
taken the torch from his father to run the show, came up with
the unique idea of having an event centered around World Cup
Cricket as the theme. "With
the kind of hype which is being built on this World Cup I was
prompted to do this event. The basic idea was to wish good
luck to the Indian team for the World Cup. This kind of an
event is probably the first of its kind in a so called
authentic Sweet Meat Shop."
Raj Sethia had converted
the entire shop to resemble a cricket stadium.It included a
scoreboard and commentator's box. There were also wickets 35
feet long outside the shop. "We
have in fact even changed the names of our preparations after
the game. For e.g., the traditional
will be called

Sethia enjoys his work.
The prospect of finding new ways of adorning sweets to make
them appealing and trying out new chaats, enthralls him.
Explaining further, Mr. Raj Sethia says, "Apart
from our quality what we value most are our esteemed
customers. At Gangotree we give personalised service and often
make new creations as per the customer's specifications. Chaat
is the only food which is custom-made. You can make it either
spicy, or sweet or if you love chilis you can have it
Sethia is innovative,
adventurous and takes pleasure in experimenting, aspiring to
rejuvenate people's taste buds.
