Thali & Set Menus

Our new menus for dinner

In every festive gathering or wedding- be it Rajput or Bengali - the food was usually served in a thali. We eat with our eyes first - the variety of food in a thali is a great visual start to a beautiful meal! 

 

Our Royal Thali is served on a copper platter and includes 12 different items. A tasting menu served in an Indian heritage way.

Our three course menu as well as our extravagant Royal Thali Tasting Platter are available Wed to Sat from 6pm to 9:30pm with booking.

Due to these two offering having a different sequence of service, we require the whole party to pick either of the options. 

No a la carte will be offered on evening service at the moment.

Please note that the below menu will be from Friday 22nd (few items might differs)
