Chef Sandeep Sreedharan hails from the South Indian town Mahé, a former French territory. He along with Parth Timbadia have brought sumptuous coastal delights to Goa making the most of the fresh produce. Their new collaboration, located in Anjuna is also named Mahé and will have a menu that is inspired by chef’s travels as well as his hometown. “It’s all about a confluence of ingredients and techniques used in the area to bring out simple rustic dishes in a way they have not been introduced before,” say the partners about the venture.
Mahé Opens In Goa
The restaurant is located inside a century old Portuguese house which has been updated while retaining the Indo-Portuguese charm. The bar at Mahé is named Blush, the dining room is Jade and there’s also a lovely garden space for an al fresco dining experience. The outdoor section will give the travellers a Goan feel with pebbles and foliage all around. The dining area inside is meant to create a nostalgic vibe with French pastel highlights, Scandinavian detailing and modern Indian digital art.
