Smoky Pitara derives its name from its signature mystery boxes of food. You get to pick the box (Indian, Chinese, Continental, or Dessert) and the Chef picks the delicacies that go inside the box. The boxes usually comprise of 4 different dishes and can be shared by 2 or 3 diners. Smoky Pitara is amongst the new crop of stylish pure -vegetarian restaurants that have caught the fancy of a city that is renowned for its royal, non-vegetarian fare. The restaurant remains busy through the week, and reservation is recommended. It is not difficult to surmise why so many keep flocking to Smoky Pitara. The menu is not particularly ambitious or adventurous. Instead, it banks heavily on crowd favourites. It is divided into 3 sections - Indian, Continental, and Oriental, and the kitchen pulls off each cuisine with aplomb. The bold flavours are both eminently likeable and comforting. Pair this with a lively, well-anointed dining space and great service and you have the recipe for success.
