Ashwani Dhwan – Co-Owner

Ashwani Dhawan

Ashwani’s ideals started from his youth in the sleepy Himalayan town of Shimla, India. Those early day learnings combined with his journey as a Silicon Valley technology entrepreneur lead him to another passion – creating a new food and beverage movement. Knowledge through his past lives at General Electric, IBM and four other technology start-ups, Ashwani learned that nothing is impossible. With that in mind, he moved his passion to food and opened the first iconic California Indian Mantra restaurant in Palo Alto. Never standing still, his next venture with partner was Slider Bar Café where the start of his food movement began its origins. Ashwani shares his dream with his wife Amita Dhawan and his two daughters who inspire him everyday for new recipes and goodness!
