The 85-seat indoor restaurant features an extensive menu catering to meat, seafood and vegetarian preferences. Food lovers will delight in small and large plates, soups, salads, live fire specialties, breads and unique fruit and floral essence-infused beverages and desserts.

Small plates include Scallops Moilee with poppy seeds, turmeric, ginger and moilee sauce, Badak Kosha with duck, chili vinegar, sesame honey and madras and Pachisa Lamb Chops prepared with yogurt and 25 spices.
The restaurant’s signature specialties include Lassoni Gobi — crisp cauliflower florets with garlic chili and sesame, Old Delhi Butter Chicken with tikka morsels in creamy tomato and fenugreek sauce, Zaffron Lobster prepared with Chablis, saffron and a butter ruction and the MOKSHA Feast with chicken tikka malai kabab, tandoori prawns, tulsi kabab, lambchops, rosemary naan and black lentils.
