Our Journey

Our journey started with a simple question from the better half “Can you make it healthy? What ensued then was endless tasting sessions, food trials and arguments… After a brief sabbatical to India back to the basics, the restaurant finally started in November 2015. We owe our presence to you the customers and our critiques who have motivated us to work hard at getting better.

Our food values

Our carefully designed menus represent various regions of India.

Our food is prepared using an amalgamation of the finest ingredients & cooking techniques. We have taken a new approach to cooking by incorporating the following:

  • Use rapeseed oil in our cooking.
  • Substitute oils and cream with lentil puree and yoghurt.
  • We use natural tenderisers like dairy and nutmeg against any artificial tenderising agents.
  • We are working to eliminate allergens on site in a structured manner without compromising on flavours and textures.
  • Lots to choose for the most discerning diets! We provide gluten free, vegan and cater for most dietary requirements.
Why not book a cookery session with us on a lazy Sunday afternoon?

About Me

Having passed out of hotel school in 1994. My first job was at ‘The Leela Kempinski, Mumbai’. A 5 star super deluxe leading hotels of the world property with 427 bedrooms and banqueting for up to 4,500 guest. Here I had the opportunity to learn the ropes and work with various local Maestros and expatriate chefs.

An opportunity came to join a pre-opening 121 bedroom property and I joined Le Royal Meridien Mumbai as a Sous Chef, responsible for a 24 hour multi cuisine restaurant and banqueting, besides In-room dining and the lounge bars. Here i not only had the privilege of working with the best of teams but also was a trainer for ‘Commitment to Excellence’ programmes.

I moved to the United Kingdom in 2003 and had the privilege of working in food factories and coming back to hotels as a Group Executive Chef. I am also privileged to work as a Development Chef for leading retail chains and worked with prominent bankers on retail franchise operations. I dropped anchor in 2015 at my current restaurant to pursue a dream which would not have been possible with out my peers, superiors various teams who have contributed immensely to my never ending learning curve.
