Almost a one-man show, the eatery is owned an operated by chef Farid Allan who said that although he may not have set up at the right time in 2021, as soon as all of the pandemic restrictions were lifted, business started booming.
He said he was lucky he operated the only hot food place on his side of Auburn and believed the simplicity yet the high quality and affordability of his menu was what kept customers coming back.
“Some customers come two or three times day,” he said.
“The oregano rolls, meat and cheese manoush and peri peri pizza are among my most popular items but I offer just about every combination you can think of.
“I also sell the full hot coffee suite, cold drinks, confectionery and ice cream.
“The Bayan special is extremely popular too and includes marinated chicken, jalapenos, onion and my homemade peri peri sauce.”
Farid said that even after including a modest price increase on his meals, they were still cheaper and larger than many others.
“Customers have told me that and I have also not had one complaint since I opened; I’m very proud about that.”
With catering also available with a week’s notice, Bayan & Co is open seven days a week, 5.30am-4pm, Monday to Saturday and on Sundays, 7am-4pm.
