Hyat Syed, owner and founder of Balti House, is a native New Yorker who moved to Dublin in 1996 to take over the family resaurant business. While the restaurant was doing well, Hyat liked the idea of making authentic, restaurant quality, Indian dishes accessible to people who love Indian food but who don’t have the time to prepare and cook it in the traditional way. The Balti House range of convenient, ready-to-eat meals was born.
