Jaspaul’s Indian Restaurant at Sylvania Heights has come to an end of a era.

After serving the Sutherland Shire for 25 year it’s time to retire and hang up the kitchen knives. 

Kuldip and Raewyn Singh have been the owners of the business along with their two sons Jason and Paul. 

In fact the name Jaspaul’s is an amalgam of their son’s names.

The restaurant started off in 1992 down on Tom Uglys Bridge in Sylvania next door to Paul’s famous Hamburgers.

After a short break in 2000 re-opened again in Sylvania Heights in 2002.

On October 18 this year the family held its last dinner service and said adieu to its loyal patrons. 

‘‘It was very sad as we had built a fantastic clientele with many regulars that have been coming for years,’’ Raewyn said.

‘‘Most of them watched my sons grow up as they helped out and also later their wife’s Alicia and Renee.’’

Raewyn said that over the years they had seen many changes including watching as the children of regular diners grew to become adults.

‘‘The new owners Milind Kshatriya and Vikas Nanda are lovely people and we wish them all the best in business. 

‘‘They will be changing the name to Mumbai Masala but will keep the same menu and add a few more dishes.

‘‘For all the butter chicken lovers you don’t have to worry as the recipe won’t change.’’
