Our Story

After 35 years of living in the Bay Area, California (San Francisco Area) I got tired of the sky rocketing home prices, super heavy traffic congestion and high crime. After a search for over an year our family landed in Manlius, NY in 2015 due to the city’s high quality schools, low crime and affordable housing. As we started living here we quickly realized that this place desparately needs a good eatery. Having 4 school kids of ours we found out we were spoiled by having a good eatery in every corner of San Francisco. My kids always enjoyed going for a Taco or Burrito, sometimes we would go to Quzno’s and sometimes we would go for Real Tandoori Chicken and Naan off the oven in Fremont, California…… we missed the great food in the big city. So I wanted to open a restaurant that would have ALL of the varieties under one roof. We also were inspired by the idea of healthy eating… LESS frying.. more grilling and baking…at the same time having an OPEN Kitchen. The customers gets to see their food being cooked in front of their eyes….at the same time keeping the prices affordable like any FAST FOOD Restaurant.
And so Open Flame of Manlius was born. An International Fast Food Restaurant under One Roof right here in the heart of Manlius New York.
For the past 30 years, I have been traveling around the world tasting different foods from Dubai to Bangladesh to Hong Kong to Singapore to Indonesia. We have tried many exotic foods and from that we have made some of the tastiest foods around. We hope you come to enjoy our great food,great prices and family atmosphere.
