There have been ample of fine-dine restaurants which have juxtaposed and fused our Indian cuisine – some have been successful while others have been disastrous. Tresind Mumbai (located at BKC Inspire) has created a sensation at the rarefied end of the food spectrum. The team has ably used modernization as the theme by skilfully blending and unifying the rich Indian flavours and the outcome is – a magical, innovative evolution of flavours. The beauty here is that the true essence of our heritage cuisine is intact without being crucified.
Tresind lives up to its brand identity of being Very Indian. The super-success of its original flagship entity in Dubai is now being circulated to other countries. Mumbai has been fortunate to get it for the indulgent foodies who are always ready to relish, experiment and savour new flavours.
The ambience is supreme, vis-à-vis the Dubai Tresind, the ambience in Mumbai is subtle. The service is par excellence with servers giving you an in-depth briefing of the 10-course meal you have chosen.
So if you are that perpetual gastro tourist (foodie), Tresind will surely wow you. There’s always this rich, extravagant culinary experience which you wouldn’t mind to pinch on your pocket. Surely, it’s worth every penny you pay for.
Most of the successful menu have been carried forward to Mumbai, they keep changing their menus every month while retaining the super-hits on their list. A big kudos to Chef Himanshu Saini, his painstaking planning and fetish for perfection on the flavour front are worth applauding.
What we had:
Well without giving out spoilers since it is a 10-course menu, there was absolutely nothing (yes, nothing) which wasn’t perfect. Every course lends a different high and astounds you that you haven’t explored such gems of our Indian cultural heritage.
The gravies are rich, smooth, perfectly seasoned for foodies who love the interplay of spices – the cocktails are exotically curated and created right in front of you – the bite-sized portions are so magical that you ponder about the bursts of delights which infuse your taste buds – the molecular creation will zap you with the richness – the list is endless, I could just get oozy with my feelings.
The lamb Khari, the tandoori prawn benedict, the kosha mangsho and of course the khichdi of India – all are dynamic dazzlers which haven’t been presented to Mumbai. The desserts (palang tod and charnamrit kheer) are coltishly energetic creations that baffle you with the wizardry. I thoroughly enjoyed the khandvi faafda creation – an out-of-the-box, unimaginable masterpiece.
Tresind has surely raised the culinary flame soaring and deserves accolades, awards and not just appreciation.
Truly, an absolute delight for a Connoisseur. Go ahead, savour the experience of being treated with royalty, you won’t regret it!
