I would like to thank City 101.6 FM for a kind gesture of providing dining voucher on their birthday and wishing everyone at Kinara lots of love. Finally I would like to congratulate Chef Vikas Khanna Sir on the launch of new book Sacred Foods Of India. Thanking you.More

Loved this restaurant. The food was stunning , beautifully presented & wonderfully spiced . Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable about all the dishes and extremely attentive . I would have no hesitation in recommending or returning . If staying in the resort this restaurant is...not covered by your AI package ( apparently it was pre pandemic ) but you are given an allowance towards it .
