India Today - - COVER STORY - By Aditi Pai

Healthy needn’t be bor­ing and that’s the point that a visit to the newly opened Sante Spa Cui­sine, drives home. Mak­ing its de­but in Mum­bai with a cozy out­let in Ban­dra Kurla Com­plex, this Pune brand brings to the city an all-veg­e­tar­ian, multi-cui­sine menu that is high on both, taste and qual­ity. Ex­tend­ing the calm­ing spa ex­pe­ri­ence to the dé­cor, the in­te­ri­ors are serene and sooth­ing with re­cy­cled fur­ni­ture, lamps made of cor­ru­gated boxes, neem wood plates and cut­lery, ba­nana leaf straws, cop­per glasses for wa­ter and ce­ramic plates coloured with turmeric.


The sauces and cashew cheese is all made in-house and the in­gre­di­ents are sourced di­rectly from sup­pli­ers around the coun­try. Sugar is re­placed with jag­gery pow­der and raw khand­sari from Kol­ha­pur; they use un­pro­cessed Hi­malayan pink salt and zero preser­va­tives, colour and maida. “Health is the first form of wealth and our food helps you re­ju­ve­nate from in­side,” says the af­fa­ble owner Ka­nee­sha Jain who runs the restau­rant with her hus­band Bhavesh and his brother Prashant

ON THE MENU They serve In­dian, Ital­ian, Thai and Ti­betan; the menu brings in lost grains like ragi, sorghum and fox­tail mil­lets and caters to var­ied di­etary pref­er­ences.

PRICE `1,800 for two AT First In­ter­na­tional Fi­nan­cial Cen­tre, Ban­dra Kurla Com­plex
