Chef Asif is very versatile and although I saw more of Hydrabadi dishes on the menu, there was a wide variety of other cuisines from India, such as Goan, Punjabi and Bengali.

For lunch, choose from the Indian-style "Bento boxes" or the famous "Chicken 65" appetizer. Chef Asif's delicious homemade chutneys accompany many of our courses. Specialty small plates and an array of stuffed tandoori naan are offered as part of the Small Bites Menu in our Wine Bar. Saffron-ginger ice cream and unique desserts provide a sweet conclusion to your meal. After dinner drinks, coffees, teas, and special events keep customers interested in coming back.
