The draw, however, is the extensive menu that spans the food of North and South India. Highlights include the fork-tender Keralan-spiced lamb shanks, the succulent lamb chops cooked Kashmiri Wazwan-style, and the cod tikka marinated with mustard oil, coriander and tamarindall judiciously cooked and presented with flair by chef Manjunath Mural.
