Alnoor Sayani, the owner of the popular Lahore Tikka House on Gerrard St. E. in Toronto’s Little India community died of heart failure on Nov 6. He was 48.

“He was one of the most creative and business-minded people,” said Muhammad Saleem, who knew Sayani for 22 years and operated a grocery store across the street for 17 of them.

“He used to sell barbecued corn on the street. He used to sleep in his car. He didn’t have a house. He started the restaurant and started building slowly, slowly,” Saleem said. “He created a legacy for himself.”
