Kinara by Vikas Khanna

Reserve a Table
Kinara, meaning ‘shore’, is the name given to JA Lake View Hotel’s stylish signature restaurant Kinara by Vikas Khanna. Headed by world-renowned chef Vikas Khanna, the 180-seat restaurant introduces a journey of the senses and a vibrant, modern exploration of traditional Indian cuisine. Described as an affordable and approachable homage to the Indian kitchen, the new eatery was inspired by the raw beauty of home cooking, from the richly diverse regions of India and South Asia.
