This bright little lobby restaurant has an à la carte menu that hides unexpected flavours among regular favourites. Take for example, the Kerala frito misto, with crumb-fried shrimp and squid tossed with mustard seeds and curry leaves; or the grilled fish fillet with basil-orange sauce (or light and creamy mango mousseline) served with rice. The lamb chops barbequed in pineapple juice, mint, celery and green onions are another unusual entrée, unless you opt for Indian or Oriental fare. In the former, the shahi hara bhara kabab (spinach dumplings stuffed with cheesy raisins) and tandoor malai jhinga are a good start, moving on to Gujarati bhindi sambariya (stir fried okra, peanuts and fresh coconut) or gosht adraki to have with fresh methi rotis. The Pan-Asian section leaves you grappling with a pork in orange-pepper sauce and Thai chilli rice. Finish off with the caramel apple crêpe or Nizami shahi tukda, if you will.
