Bandra Kurla Complex
Housed in Bandra Kurla Complex, the space designed by Renowned Thai interior decorator, Nitipattara Yensup, designer of several Nara restaurants in Asia envisaged a unique signature for Nara Mumbai. It has a contemporary yet intimate feel with large windows and embellished lamps setting the mood, while walls lined with bevelled mirrors, and silk cushions provide the perfect backdrop for a memorable Thai meal.
We got there for a late late lunch and it was still buzzing. The diners all laughing ,smiling , and truly cosmopolitan. Amidst all the revelry one could hear conversations of the food ,the decor and comparisons to the restaurants they’ve been to internationally .
The signature cocktail of Nara, ‘The Pisco Sour ‘ was exquisitely balanced by with the Butterfly Pea Flower lending it’s beautiful purple colour to the drink . And to cheer with us was Karyna Bajaj ,the executive director of KA hospitality . Enthusiastic ,charming and focused Karyna coveyed her ethos for providing an exceptional dining experience thereby commanding loyalty of the guests.
While the interiors exuded a zen like calm, the food was beautifully presented on a range of bespoke tableware of heavy ceramics.
The portions,tastes and experience of the appetizers and salads leave you satiated but stll greedy for more.
with the soothing flavours of lemongrass,kaffir lime leaves,galangal and the generous helping of the prawns ..you are eased into the mains.
with its mild flavour and beautiful colour this flower from Thailand turns this rice into a lovely shade of purple on adding just a little bit of lemon to it.
In addition to the main dining area, a private dining room for intimate gatherings and special celebrations is perfect for bespoke experiences; and an al fresco courtyard dappled in shade and landscaped with Thai orchids makes it the ideal backdrop for more casual gatherings.
