Derived from the Sanskrit word used in ancient Ayurvedic philosophy to define food as the root of all well-being, Ahara reimagines India with Japanese produce in his 32-seater restaurant. It is fronted by one of India’s leading Asian cuisine chefs, Vikramjit Roy, who sharpened his knives in some of the most remarkable restaurants in India and Japan, where he was Japanese Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto's protégé. Here, a contemporary menu celebrates the diversity of India’s food cultures, underlined by his years of professional training in Japan’s culinary arts. The result is a luxe, unpretentious experience of India’s overlapping regionalities that blends the legacy of many lifetimes.
Expect umami-forward flavours with an emphasis on fiery heat executed with both intention and restraint. There is also finessed display of traditional Indian and Japanese pickling techniques dancing hand in hand throughout the meal, providing measured acidity and balance always in each dish. Choose from the nine-course Explore ($248) or the grand 16-course Expedition ($338) menu to experience Ahara.
