From America’s first Indian chef to be awarded a Michelin Star, Chef Hemant Mathur, Saar offers a combination of Indian street foods and traditional home-cooked dishes. The menu cleverly reflects the subcontinent’s multicultural influence, and everything is presented in a colorful and modern setting.
The Biryani here is not only plentiful but will also exceed your expectations in terms of flavor. The mint yogurt on the side cools down the palate, making it ready for the next spoonful.
The Cochin Black Pepper Chicken is outstanding. Served with soft dosas to go with it, the dish takes a different route from what you usually find on an Indian restaurant’s menu – it’s peppery, intense, and sure to make you drivel.
And finally, the Moong Dal Halwa at Saar is so very good that it will put you in a food coma!
