Taking up residence at the luxurious hotel Palazzo Versace, the waterfront restaurant is the perfect spot for a long lunch featuring a dramatic brass bar and ample outdoor seating overlooking the marina.
The menu, curated by Michelin-starred chef Manjunath Mural and executive chef Sabir Merchant, effortlessly blends traditional Indian flavours with a fresh modern twist using locally sourced ingredients.
Seafood is king here, with much of it cooked in a tandoor, a traditional clay oven often used in northern Indian cooking. The technique results in melt-in-your-mouth seafood with the most delicate of flavours. Order the pomegranate prawns, tails on, served with a yoghurt marinade. And the sambal barramundi with turmeric yoghurt, masala caviar and charred silver beet. Don’t choose one or the other, trust us and just order both.
And that’s only the beginning of the food on offer here. The menu is five pages long, so we suggest making several trips back here.
