Pijja Palace

"Indian Sports Bar is not a phrase you hear often, if at all, so it’s no surprise that this quirky hotspot at the base of a Comfort Inn defies labels.

The food is equally original, riffing on classic bar dishes but elevating them with astute seasoning and careful preparation." - Michelin
