Two of the best known restaurateurs in New York City, Vicky Vij and Raja Jhanjee, co-owners of the legendary Bukhara Grill in Manhattan, saw an opportunity to take over The Castle, an elegant, upscale banquet hall featuring Portuguese and other cuisine, in Roselle Park, NJ.
Like countless other immigrants to America, they shared a dream to open their own restaurant some day. The Michelin-rated Bukhara Grill has had the honor of serving Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Rolling Stones and U2, among others. Despite their successful track record, the partners had difficulty securing the financing needed to take over The Castle.
With the help of Biz2Credit, Vicky Vij and Raja Jhanjee were able to secure a 25-year loan for $4 million at 6 percent interest from one of our partner bank in Salt Lake City. Shortly thereafter, they re-opened the beautiful, 25,000-square-foot banquet hall.
"Biz2Credit helped us get financing in a professional way. We recommend Biz2Credit to any small business owner in need of a loan," says Raja.

"Biz2Credit was the biggest, biggest part of my success here. Biz2Credit came in like a lifesaver," she said
"I'd give Biz2Credit a 15 out of 10. Joe, my funding specialist, does a great job. He's always on point and really understands my business. Every time I've worked with him he's come through for me in a big way
"The turnaround time for funding was quick with Biz2Credit," Raza told us. "As soon as they got our information we had a decision - there was no waiting period like I experienced with other lenders."
