The Choicest & Tastiest Indian Sweets & Savouries
City Sweets centre was started by it's founder Mr Jethalal Thanki , who came to the UK from Tanzania (East Africa) in 1970. He was a specialist sweet maker in Dar-es-Salam and having earned a great reputation and loyal client base, he decided to open an Indian sweet (mithai) shop in Forest Gate, the east of London.
His two sons, Natwarlal and Vasantray Thanki joined the family business and have worked tirelessly to evolve the business and bring their father's recipes to sweet tooths all over the world. Natwarlal comments "The shop demanded very long working hours in the early days but we have worked together as a team. The whole family was involved."
Both brothers have chosen to follow their fathers traditional recipes but have changed the finer points in terms of texture and decorative finishing. All the sweets are made on the premises, but whereas they were previously made by hand they are now made using machines, which saves a lot of time and has allowed them to increase output to match with an ever increasing demand.
Now the third generation of the family have started to take an interest in the business and have their own input to give, from presentation to expanding their international clientele.
City Sweets Centre has continued to retain a loyal clientele. Natwarlal comments "Though many of our oldest clients have moved out of the area, they continue to come back to us for their sweets. Word of mouth and our reputation have ensured our success, and we've retained a very loyal customer base."
Vasantray adds: "Children who used to come to our shop with their parents years ago, now come in with their own children. Especially for our signature sweet, mawa pera!"
