Ten-Second Takeaway

Powai’s map will now boast of a fine dine offering Awadhi cuisine. We explore why you should get a taste of it.

What Is It?

160117_RuhaPowai01An eatery cum bar serving purely Indian cuisine, Ruha is the latest gem in the Powai eating map. Located in the posh Hiranandani Gardens, the decor is entirely Indian, so expect to you elaborate designs, motifs and pretty lights. The 3,500 square feet fine-dine features a combination of warm and vibrant colours like azure blue, maroon, and champagne gold.

Chow Down

The menu is not limited to just Awadhi food. If you’re not in the mood for Indian, you can choose from their international menu. They have burnt garlic cheese fondue {INR 350}, fig and goat cheese bruschetta {INR 350} and rosemary braised lamb shank with mash and greens {INR 700}.


But if your heart has decided to go with Awadhi, try anything from their daawat-e-khaas section, starting at INR 345 or starters from ‘koyale ke khan se’. Their desserts include drool-worthy Indian favourites like hot jalebi with rabri {INR 245}, khubani ka meetha {INR 245} and malai phirni. If you’d like to stick to the usual, try vanilla creme brulee {INR 245} or espresso caramel brownie {INR 295}.

Sip On


An elaborate bar menu at Ruha will allow you to have liquor starting at INR 295. A pint of beer will cost you INR 225 {Budweiser}, or you can choose from their pitcher options. They also have in-house cocktails starting at INR 425.

So, We’re Saying…

If you live in/near Powai or are looking for a place to do a fancy work meeting, head to Ruha. Also great for those who love the nawabi cuisine. We foresee a romantic date too.
