Critic Rating

Shweta Speaks Writer & Journalist

3.7/5

A hybrid buffet and À la carte set-up here sees one ordering mains from a fixed menu, while starters come to the table and sides, desserts and so on are buffet style. The offerings highlight cuisines generally viewed as carnivore-lenient, such as South East Asian. There is fragrant Thai food employing plenty of basil, mushroom and bamboo shoot, a Cantonese profusion of soy and vibrant greens, Korean sees slow-cooked cabbage kim chi infusing flavour into tofu with spring onions and all-veg bibimbap, and the Singapore and Malay sections have a delicious dash of chilli coconut, curry leaf and coriander seeds and more. A ‘his and hers’ favourite menu lists out the recommendations of accomplished chefs helming these kitchens (including Jain fare). Do not sidestep the delicious Indian menu that showcases Punjabi, Rajasthani and Maharashtrian food.

Royal Indian Experience

JW Marriott Pune is one of my favorite 5 star properties in town ! Always hustling with guests, offering them an amazing luxurious experience! Shakahari, has been one of the gems in their restaurants that offers luxury combined with royalty! Being a non vegetarian, this place still has my heart for bringing the different vegetarian cuisines of the country to one insane Thali Experience. The menu is curated for you to enjoy the various flavours of the country with a top notch hospitality experience. Fine cutlery including silver thalis with beautifully laid tables & a vibe transporting you to the royal palaces of Rajasthan ! Maharaj Jai Kishen has definitely poured his heart into curating a menu that makes you feel truly Royal! Food : Currently, the restaurant is doing a Gujarati & Punjabi cuisine focused menu with a mishtan bhandaar that can blow you away! The meal started with a traditional royal way of washing the hands at the seats & a plethora of starters including indian chaat, papads and homemade pickles. The dahi wadas were lip smacking & I couldn't help asking for some more!  These Starters and Salads paired up with a dash Mango Pickle were on point! The main course included a variety of Gujarati sabjis with options of puris, kulchas to pair with & some Kadi! But, what kept us engrossed in the food was the daal baati that an absolute delight and was very comforting to the palate! A Misthan Bhandar that consisted of : Rabadi , Malai Kulf, Kesar Pista Kulfi, Gulab Jamun , Lychee Gulla, Moti Chor Ladoo was like a little bit of heaven in itself! If you have a sweet tooth, then this place is definitely going to be loved ! To complete, the whole indian meal was the paan ! Shakahari, blends traditional flavors & royalty with a hospitality of a luxury hotel giving you a memorable experience! The food transports you and leaves you with a memory to last of a royal indian thaal just like the maharajas !

Wow

Purely vegetarian. But if you don’t visit this place you are missing out. Unique concept. You are served on the table and every item served to you will be explained by the staff. Just don’t miss it because it is Shakahari.

Royal Dining Experience

Before starting with my review, I'd like to say that dining at Shakahari is more of a Royal experience and is something which I would highly recommend to everyone reading this review. Now let's get started. Shakahari, as the name suggests, is a pure vegetarian fine dine Indian restaurant. The hostess greets you with a smile before sprinkling rose water on you. Rose water is an essential part to welcome guests royally. As I entered, the first thing that came to my notice was the plush sofas, the elegant maroon curtains and the overall ambiance which makes you feel as if you have entered a modern royal palace. Coming to the food, Maharaj Jai Kishen, and Chef de Cuisine Gaurav lavishly craft the menu, and it changes every two months. For my table, I had a mix of Punjabi and Gujarati cuisine. After settling down, a big silver plate arrived and seeing the size of the plate I knew I was in for a huge treat. Now the real show starts where there are a host of servers coming over and serving you an array of dishes. Beginning the royal meal with the assortment of delicious cold and hot appetizers, out of which I loved the Handvo which is a Gujarati lentil cake served with green chutney and Subz ki Shammi which is a pan-fried vegetable kebab having a subtle flavor of cinnamon and cardamom. The mains are something like a never-ending flow of delicious food on your plate. Dal Baati Churma with ghee is something you should never skip when you visit Shakahari. I was overwhelmed as it tasted similar to the one prepared by my mom. Another homely dish was the Gujarathi Kadhi, a light, flavorful curry which I prefer drinking directly from the bowl. Kaju Batata Rassa had tender, soft potatoes with cashew in a tangy red gravy. I also liked the Val Muthia Nu Shaak which is regularly prepared at Gujarathi households. It is a delectable preparation of red tomato based curry with field beans, fenugreek, and gram flour dumplings. There were hot puris, Amritsari kulchas, and bajra no rotla to go with the curries. I was also served Tarkari Kichdi which is universal comfort food and goes amazingly well with the dal or kadhi. Ps. do not forget to add ghee to it. And yes! There is Aamras too for all the Mango-heads out there! After I got done with the heavy food, it was time for desserts. Shakahari has a dedicated desserts room called as the Mishtan Bhandar which is a literal translation to Sweets Repository. There are around 30 types of desserts awaiting to get devoured. Their kulfis are prepared in-house and served as kulfi falooda which cannot be missed. Your meal is not complete there. The final element is their Paan which also acts as a mukhvas. To sum it up as I mentioned at the start that dining at Shakahari is a Royal Experience which will keep bringing you back for more. The hospitality by Restaurant Manager Mr. Partha and his team is a cherry on top. Special mention to Mr. Vinod who took care of our table and made sure our plates were always full of delicious food.
