Kurseong became home to a retired Sikh gentleman S. Kesar Singh Bindra in the year 1969. He dreamt to make it big in this small town which was then the road to Darjeeling for all travellers.What started was the Amarjeet Restaurant which boosted of hot Samosas and Gulab Jamuns in the foggy winters of Kurseong. In an unfortunate accident in the year 1979 the restaurant got burnt leading to the desperate efforts of re-establishment and expansions. That was the time when Mr. Surjeet Singh Bindra, the son of Mr. Kesar Singh Bindra decided to construct a hotel in the new and upcoming destination of Mirik. Mirik had been projected by Mr. Siddhartha Shankar Ray, the Honourable Chief Minister of Bengal, as a new destination in the hills of Darjeeling and the government had its master plans ready for the development of Mirik. With lot of difficulties we were among the selected few to receive the permission to construct a structure in the present hotel premises. Hotel Jagjeet came into existence and extending further the restaurant was completed in a record time of three months. It was inaugurated on 26th September 1980 and has been a pioneer of multi-cuisine specialities to suit everyone's tastes and desires. Located just at a stone throwing distance away from the Mirik's famous Sumendu Lake the hotel has been providing the best accommodations and services. The next generation of Bindra's manage the hotel with utmost care and spirit to ensure a memorable stay for every visitor.
