Lowdown On The Ambience

Located below INXS Clinique, an anti-aging and anti-obesity centre started by Dr Keerthi and his wife Dr Sangeetha, the café and salad bar is an extension of the health quest. So, it might be a bit odd at first, but when you enter the chic lounge, decked out in red lounge chairs and chaise sofas, you’ll forget all about its origins.

What’s On The Menu

We kicked things off with Chicken Dim Sum {simple and straightforward} and Gratinated Mexican Tortilla Chips, which is baked and comes loaded with cilantro and tomato salsa and low-fat Parmesan cheese. Pick either the slow-cooked Tomato and Carrot soup with the delightful flavour of basil, or the Chicken, Celery & Chilli soup in a healthy veggie stock. Don’t think twice before ordering the Orange Pepper Salad though. Crisp lettuce, orange wedges, bell pepper, olives, capers and balsamic are obviously a match made in heaven.

Main Aim

Sticking to the health brigade, you’ll find most of the options are grilled, stir fried or lightly sautéed. If you’re looking for something Oriental, we recommend the Chinese Chicken in hot soy sauce or the mushroom and paneer version of it. Both come with burnt garlic rice for the fried rice effect, but minus the grease. Fans of steaks though, our eye went straight to the Peri Peri chicken sizzler and our eyes were right! Arriving on a bed of homemade spaghetti, the strips of grilled chicken are covered with an in-house thick hot sauce any Mexican Mama would be proud of. Grilled Fish {usually basa but seer for an extra charge} is a fabulous option for the pescatarian out there as it’s a different rub of chilli garlic with low-fat butter parsley rice. Desserts include fresh fruit and vanilla ice cream, but on a fitness path, and inspired by the great food we’d had, we chose to end our meal minus sweet treats.


Juices are freshly squeezed and will fill you up easily. So try a juice and a salad to keep light and fit.
