The dhow boats with tables nes­tled co­zily inside urge you to em­bark on a culi­nary jour­ney of South In­dia at Zam­bar, which serves a smat­ter­ing of tra­di­tional dishes of the four south­ern states. A take on the fa­mous south In­dian dish, samb­har, this res­tau­rant set up by the Delhi based Lite Bite Foods chain, brings you the best of Chet­ti­nad and Mal­abar cuisines with an influence of the kitchens of Andhra Pradesh. The chef dishes out tra­di­tional del­i­ca­cies like puttu and idi­ap­pam which are dif­fi­cult to come by at other restau­rants. The Mal­abar veg­e­tar­ian stew here is the per­fect com­fort food. The high­light of Zam­bar is that the cui­sine from the four states are dis­tinct and stand out from each other. To main­tain au­then­tic­ity, the spices are ground fresh, ev­ery morn­ing, on stone slabs. Even the cook­ware comes from the var­i­ous re­gions that the res­tau­rant rep­re­sents to en­sure a home- style touch. The sig­na­ture drink here is the rasam shot— the spicy curry- drink is served as an ap­pe­tiser in shot glasses to kick start the meal. The food is de­li­cious and the in­te­ri­ors are taste­fully done with a small boat­shaped sofa in the cen­tre. Av­er­age meal for two Rs 1,200 plus taxes At East Block, Amanora Town Cen­tre, Hadap­sarKharadi By­pass Tel 020 67267831
