Wines

To enhance the enjoyment of your dining experience, we offer you a selection of beers, wines, and cocktails, as well as some traditional Indian drinks. Wines have traditionally been matched with European style food for a long time, and wine and food pairing has evolved now to a degree of sophistication. But to match wines with foods from Asia is something new and often challenging, perhaps due to the fact that grape was not indigenous in those lands, or there were other cultural restrictions. However, the times have changed. Americans are exploring new culinary horizons, and ethnic cuisines are gaining popularity. As diners become more adventurous, it is becoming more evident that wine is a natural part of any meal, and that a union of food and wine is only natural.

Having started from very humble beginnings, our commitment to quality and excellence has been our guiding principle, and we strive to keep on improving. Our wine list has in excess of 300 different wines selected from different parts of the world, representing most varietals. These fine wines are stored in our own custom cellar, with temperature and humidity controlled to insure proper handling. We price them very reasonably to enable you to enjoy the drink that complements your food selection.

Begin your meal with a truly exotic traditional Indian beverage, like Jaljeera, a refreshing cool summer drink with cumin and mint; or lassi, made with homemade yogurt. Or consider a cocktail of your choice from our full service bar. We also have a fine selection of domestic and imported beers, including lagers, ales, stouts, and dessert beers that stand to complement your order, from appetizers to desserts.

Finally, a cup of our espresso or cappuccino, or Indian tea or Masala Chai will give a crowning touch to an exquisite dining experience. We are providing our best dishes for that check out our menu.
