The Taftoon menu is celebration of the Grand Trunk Road; trailing through Afghanistan, passing through Lahore and touching parts of Kashmir before highlighting the hearty flavours of ‘Dilli’, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Punjab, Jharkhand and finally Bengal, the menu highlights food that is the heart and soul of these regions. Eating through the menu at Taftoon is like going through a cultural story, reliving dishes from local home kitchens and farms to highway dhabas and royal dining halls.
