“This will be the second and last of all the Masala Libraries in India. Now it will only go overseas. Where? We are not allowed to disclose,” The Economic Times quoted Zorawar Kalra, Founder and MD of Massive Restaurants Pvt Ltd.

The Menu

The Delhi chapter of Masala Library will be located in Janpath. The sizable 60-seater restaurant will offer food from neighbouring countries like Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Maldives and Myanmar as well.

“We have completely revamped the menu. We used to call Masala Library, Bombay as Version 2 for Indian food. We are calling this Version 4 and not Version 3 because we have done so much innovation that it has now skipped a version.

“It is very cutting edge food and equally cutting edge technology. It is truly a marriage of modern science with ancient forms of cooking. This restaurant represents not just India but the entire the sub-continent,” Zorawar told ET Panache.

Massive Restaurants Pvt. Ltd. has been the brain behind restaurants like Pa Pa Ya, Farzi Café and Made In Punjab. But clearly, Masala Library is one solid gem in the Massive Restaurants’ crown.

The restaurant is scheduled to be open for public from July 18 and will serve only dinner for the first few weeks.
