MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

From the moment you walk into this unique Indian gem—brought to you by the same team as Rasa—you will feel right at home. Ever so transporting, the space is a veritable comfort zone—stylish, breezy, and inviting. Over in the kitchen, the cooks are focused on vibrant and sumptuous renderings from the nation's myriad of regions. While the best dishes tend to be more traditional at heart, they boast a host of intriguing garnishings. Kale pakoras are deep-fried fritters served with onions in a light chickpea batter and a spectrum of chutneys; while lamb curry reveals a leg of lamb slow-braised with over 21 Indian spices.

A cool rice pudding, studded with crushed pistachios and fresh strawberries, is sweet, creamy and brimming with a wonderfully warm spice.
