The vast country of India, so vast you could consider it almost a continent, is a kaleidoscope of colors and smells, festivals, sounds, crowded bazaars, religious ceremonies... a country where many religions cohabit peacefully, Hindoes, Buddhists, Moslims and Christians, there is even a church in which all these religions are practised. Ruled by the British for many years, India only became independent in 1947.
From the famous Taj Mahal to the frozen mountain tops of the Himalayas, from the grand colonial mansions that line Mumbai (formely Bombay) to the huts which house the poor, from the protected tigers to the holy cows, from the houseboats in Kerala to the impressive mosques you'll find in cities, India is a country of sharp contrasts. This makes is also a fascinating country to visit and every time you do, you can have a completely different experience.
We would love to show you the best that our country has to offer.

For the meal, we recommend a Thali Service – a regal Indian way of dining. "Thalis", which are a variety of menu items served on one platter, are a customary style of meal in India.
A Thali is an Indian meal with contents varying from state to state. Depending on the restaurant or the region you are in, the Thali consists of delicacies native to that region. A Thali typically comes as a North Indian or a South Indian. The North Indian Thali starts you out with Pooris, Chappattis (Rotis), different vegetarian specialties (curries), usually a sweet, and other miscellaneous items. The South Indian Thali comes with applams papad, rice delicacies and similar items from the North Indian. Both of these usually come with "bottom-less" refills on all components of food; the idea is that one eats until fully satisfied
Enjoy a gourmet Lunch ~ "THALI"
Our Indian chef conducts a Spice talk for all the guests. He explains about all the traditional Indian spices, their usage in Indian food and their various other values. This has been a very interesting and well appreciated topic for all our guests in the past. After the 20-30 minute talk, we could distribute some notes and spice pouches for the guests to take home.
