Upohar, meaning gift in Bengali, is a “social impact” restaurant and catering company serving global fare. We offer the gift of meaningful employment paying living wages to women experiencing barriers to workforce entry, such as newly resettled refugees, and put them on a path to economic self-sufficiency. We celebrate our employees’ culture and heritage by featuring authentic food from their home countries.

“The smell of the food was intoxicating. If it were possible, the taste even more so. I noticed my husband and I stopped talking because we couldn’t stop eating. Then I noticed how quiet all the other diners were because they too were captivated by every bite. It was like a scene from the movie Chocolate where every person was in love with every bite. This place is Lancaster’s hidden gem!”— Susan Kiskis
