About the Restaurant

Born from the lavish and vintage decadence of the colonial era, The Sahib Room & Kipling Bar boasts robust Indian delicacies and flavors. Leading into the restaurant is the aptly named ‘Kipling Bar’, inspired by the iconic writer and philosopher Rudyard Kipling. Here, talented mixologists showcase the craft of fusing classic libations with Indian spices.

Venetian mirrors, gilt and brocade, chandeliers, deep rich upholstery and European formality are the design details that make The Sahib Room a veritable living room from a bygone era, and yet the play of colors and layout add a modern day contemporary touch. Large, exquisite chandeliers brighten up the dark wood furniture and its earthy tones, and ample natural daylight floods The Sahib Room through its large window panes. 

The menu boasts classic Indian favorites with familiar ingredients and slight hints of modernity – the menus has been created keeping in mind the discerning diner who enjoys robust and flavorsome food. Chef Angad Rai favours traditional ingredients with medicinal properties like Dried Vetevier Root, Betel Flower Root and Stone Flower in his cooking. His style of cooking is one that masterfully blends innovation, taste, flavour and yet allows each ingredient to retain its inherent place and health benefits.
