On our first day in Mumbai on Sunday November 3rd 2019, my colleagues and I went shopping to the Palladium Mall but before wandering around in the mall for Mumbai goods, we decided to have something to eat.
We spotted a spacious restaurant named Ishaara, It was a place flooded with natural light, well-designed and cheerful. The teak wood furniture added to the warmth and accentuated the lively ambiance. The five of us decided to give it a try and we were blown away by the food and the service.
The food was modern Indian cuisine, from across various regions of India, very refreshing. The corresponding sign for each dish made it easy for us to place the order with the staff -- all with speech and hearing impairement -- starting with the comforting street-food, which is a highlight here. 'Dilli Aloo Tikki', 'Bhutte Ki Khees', and 'Chicken Nukti Boti Kachori', are absolute must-haves. The 'Chicken Moringa Soup' is well-made and a flavorful treat and the Lobster Patti one must not miss. Every dish from the Rogani Roti to the steamed rice was delightful and the desserts from the Yuzu lime mousse to the Vanilla Pod Aga Agar were a knockout.
The wine list was interesting but a little expensive for lunch so we went for the Kingfisher beers.
The service is provided by a well-trained staff, their warmth and alertness is hard to miss. We wish we had the same level of service in restaurants in Europe, especially in France where the service is often mediocre.
The food at Ishaara was high on flavors and textures, real and robust, without pretense. The price was easy-on-the-wallet and the portions good value for your money and much better than most Michelin-starred Indian restaurants whether in London or New York.
A must-go while in Mumbai.
