A holistic dining experience that stimulates all senses.

From Delhi to Jakarta. A bright-eyed newlywed and certified dietician, Shilpa Dave, uprooted her life and moved with her family to a tropical island bursting with opportunities. As the years progressed Indonesia increasingly became a place she felt welcomed, respected and content. Much like Delhi, Jakarta thrived and became a melting pot of cultures. As her children blossomed, her friendships with locals and Indian communities flourished. Although Shilpa embraced Jakarta as her new home, she would often feel nostalgic for her mother’s home cooked meals, chatpata street food and freshly made jalebi on Sunday’s.

Shilpa distinctively remembers one evening in 2002, where she sat down with her husband to discuss potential fields she was considering to utilize her time. The conversation sparked a craving for her favourite Alphonso mango lassi when she realized – this is it. This is her opportunity to bridge the gap between her two homes and share the knowledge and delicacies of India with her new home in Jakarta. A restaurant that would ensure everyone who visits will be instantaneously teleported to the streets of India through music, art, flavours and warm Indian hospitality. With the support of her husband and family she commenced on a mission to spread awareness of authentic Indian cuisine in Indonesia. Her flagship location opened its doors in 2003 and since then she owns and operates seven restaurants across Indonesia.
