This upscale restaurant has linen-clothed tables, maroon banquettes, and mirrored pillars. The cuisine is northern Indian—but updated, so that it's subtler and lighter. Diners can watch as chefs prepare delicacies in the glass-fronted kitchen. As you wait, nibble on khakras, (crispy flatbreads famous in the city of Surat) served with the house chutneys, including a perky green one made with coriander and raw mango. Be sure to try the salmon ka tikka, cubes of salmon marinated in dill, fennel, ginger, honey, and mustard oil, then roasted in the tandoor.
