About Us


As with most other things that we hold dear, our love for food was born in the Himalayas. There, in the remote villages, we rediscovered simple food cooked in the traditions of India. Away from the conveniences of modern life, we grew a passion for food prepared from old familial recipes and created to make the most of the locally available and seasonal.

This turn back to simple food made in the traditions of Indian regional culture was one that we had to introduce to the modern palate. So with this mission in mind, we opened our first restaurant, Roots - Cafe in the Park, in 2010. And naturally, the space in which we first began serving was a lush outdoor space that reminded us of the great outdoors, and home.


‘Ever since, our love for food has made it’s way to diverse spaces and communities.’


From artistic regional fare at Cafe Lota and canteen-style cuisine at Triveni Terrace Cafe, to local flavours at Roots - Cafe in the Orchard and contemporary regional cuisine at Monsoon - all our spaces share a philosophy, a promise.

We’re committed to using high-quality, locally-sourced seasonal produce and alternate Indian grains, and we’re dedicated to creating happy experiences that reflect our passion for food but also invite all those who dine with us to embrace it too.
