Your favourite Indian restaurant now threatens to steal the show from INOX’s movie theatres. Let the curtains go up on Neel Indian Kitchen & Bar, new at Cr2 Mall, the Indigo group’s Indian restaurant that combines heritage cuisine with contemporary flavours.
Deco The Halls
Painted in shades of sea blue, the interior at Neel mixes modern and traditional design elements, taking a cue from its art deco neighbourhoods. Block prints, gold pendant lights and bison board panels finish this look.
Kiss The Raan
(We hope) you’re already familiar with Neel’s culinary magic, serving up traditional flavours from across the country, including Rajasthan, Amritsar, Lucknow, Malwan and Kerala.
Contemporary ingredients support forgotten cooking techniques and age-old spice blends, to bring you delicacies like Lucknowi Gilawati Kebabs, Malai Kalimiri Broccoli, Amritsari Tawa Pomfret and chef Kedar’s highly-recommended Asparagus Ki Gilawati.
For mains, get the Amristari Chole, Seb Singhada Kali Mirch made with granny smith apples and fried water chestnuts; the wonderfully slow cooked
Raan-E-Sikandar; and Kerala Tawa Roast Chicken.
End with Neel’s very special Parde Mein Khubani, an apricot halwa, prepared dum style. People who work in the neighbourhood, order the daily changing thali at lunch, and then call in sick for the rest of the day. Nap(kin) time!
Getting there: Level 1, CR2 Mall, Nariman Point, call 66664013, visit them on Facebook / Instagram / Twitter @NeelAllDay.
