India is a country with about eighteen different languages and sixteen hundred plus dialects, so food varies vastly from region to region. Our humble attempt is to bring you the most popular dishes from the north western states of India. We have carefully selected dishes from other popular cooking styles or regions of India with a hope you would enjoy them to the fullest. With our most recent menu we have also made an attempt to introduce some contemporary style Indian dishes.
