The menu incorporates flavours, inspirations, and recipes from around India to produce culinary pleasures with traces of nostalgia and tightly guarded family secrets.
The menu includes less curries but focuses on shared plates that are reminiscent of classic Indian cuisine comfort food that generations have grown up with.
