Taste Of Punjab

The vibe, music, dance, utensils, interiors, sitting arrangement, artefacts, everything will make you wonder if you're in your pind. It has a spectacular ambience, very quirky, eccentric and vibrant. There are colours everywhere; checkered floors, multi-tone, throne-like chairs, live food kiosks, bright chandeliers, sparkly drapes and golden hues. The bhangra music is energising and the dance floor is the perfect opportunity to let loose. We highly recommend their buffet! A meal here will set you back INR 1,500 for two.

Touted as India’s first Ethiopian fine dine, Abyssinian is located in Koregaon Park and run by the folks who own Savya Rassa. Take a trip to the African country which boasts of tribal culture, community meals and practices, spicy delicacies and the sponge-like injera (yum!). The decor includes traditional Ethiopian seats, 150 to 200-year-old artefacts like tribal lanterns with stories, crosses, leather pots and even some cutlery. With stout and sturdy furniture, the place has a typical messob dining culture, and it's quite similar to how the Bohri Muslim community eats in a thaal. So, it's best to visit in a group of at least four. Don't miss out on the doro wat and the coffee ceremony. Two will have to spend around INR 1,600 here.
