Contemporary restaurant in the Merchant City serving outstanding regional dishes from across India.
Comfy booths, a pleasant sense of bustle and welcoming beams from the staff — Madha has a way of putting you at your ease. And while the contemporary décor is soothingly muted, the complex and thoughtful dishes are much bolder in contrast. Madha specialises in North and South Indian cuisine with chefs from each region in the kitchen, meaning you can travel back and forth on the map, flavour-wise. Vegans also have their own extensive selection. From the main menu, the Kashmiri lamb rogan josh is both rich and light, with tender chunks of lamb — prepared on the bone for extra flavour — swimming in a pleasantly gravy-like sauce. The Punjabi paneer in makhani (butter) sauce is a layered experience, with the liquorice twang of its star anise opening descending into fruity tomato notes followed by a soothing creaminess. An airy, buttery, flaky paratha and elegantly crafted peshwari naan do an excellent job of mopping up the moreish sauces, while fresh lemon pickle on the side adds a nice kick. The semiya payasam vermicelli pudding offers a light and unassuming end to the exceptional cuisine.
