Want to be close to Earth and Ancient India, then Arth is the place for, known for its décor done by celebrity Interior designer Mrs. Gauri Khan. Arth is a place to revive the lost touch with ancient India, as it brings you the long-lost age old days cooking technique in Khar, about 1 KMS away from the Khar station.
Arth is a 2 storey restaurant, with a lounge on the ground floor, which wasn’t too occupied when I visited and fine dining on a level above, having a cage seating in the center and comfortable grey upholstered couches for a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. The service is a little slow, where things need to be told, so go when you have a decent time at hand.
The restaurant welcomes you with Complementary welcome drink, Kanji, the seasonal winter drink having black carrot and beetroot along with Khichiya Papad which is served with green chutney and red chili and garlic chutney.
We started with Berry Without; it’s a berry puree with a white egg and garnished with Star anise, a great drink with balanced taste to start your meal for sure.
Chamoleone Fizz, just like a chameleon the drink changes its color, the blue peas Tea infused ice cubes are served in a glass, which needs to be poured with lemon juice and Tonic, on pouring it changes colour from blue to purple and hence called Chamoleone Fizz.
In appetizers we started with Prawn Smoked; 4 prawns were served on a bed of sugarcane and cherry wood, garnished with radish, the prawns were chewy and needed some efforts.
Fish Chargrilled; Bhetki (Barramundi) fish from Kolkatta is served boneless, marinated in Tanga Mura, red chili and topped with edible Mejenga leaf.
Mutton Pathar ka Gosht: Served in a Pathar, the mutton is cooked in onion, garlic, ginger and is finely cooked with balanced flavours and served with Dill and garlic chive chutney, the chutney is quite spicy and gives you that perfect fire.
In mains, we tried the Deomali; Bamboo smoked mutton is served in a bamboo, there is Alpinia leaf wrapped Jasmine rice (the rice is a little sticky), goes well with the gravy and finely cooked boneless pieces of mutton.
In desserts, we had Kaali Gajar Ka Halwa, the black carrots are imported from Thailand and made into a pudding, garnished with Rabdi and chopped Pistachio.
Overall, visit Arth for a luxurious evening, reviving some olden days cooking, while enjoying some amazing mocktails.
