Hamsa is one remarkably looking restaurant. Ritzy-ethnic design elements are carefully detailed out across every corner of the space. It makes sense, considering it is run by the promoter of Sukra Jewellers. Consequently, the kitchen’s creations, quite likeable in their own right, seem a little humdrum by comparison.
