Bandra Kurla Complex

Mumbai

 

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 .

We got all comfortable in a plush chairs and began our epicurean journey at Nara Thai.IMG_6557

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.
