Features
Great design, Foodie magnet, Notable chef, Good breakfast spot

Serving updated Indian classics using fresh, local ingredients and unexpected flavor combinations, expect counter service by breakfast and lunch, and waiter service with beer and wine by night. This light-filled restaurant in the sophisticated West Avenue mixed-use shopping district is vibrant, with floor-to-ceiling marigold drapes separating seating areas, bright tiles covering the walls, industrial metal touches and booths covered in bright silk prints reminiscent of chef Anita Jaisinghani's native India. The butter chicken salad, samosas, wraps called "Frankies" served with desi fries, and spicy-sweet chili chocolate chip cookies are memorable. A Mumbai street food vibe is evident with many dishes and sampler plates served in steel dishes. Vegetarian options are numerous, especially on Meatless Mondays. The expansive list of fresh pastries and desserts were so popular the restaurant eventually expanded by opening a "bake shop" upstairs, where coffee, tea, breakfast and experimental pastries are served, many made using fruits, vegetables, and spices left over from last night's dinner service.
