The mission was to create an Indian restaurant that, while respecting tradition and the cultural roots of the owner, was dynamic and current. A culturally inspired fusion of eastern details woven with modern western elements created the perfect balance between East and West.
The designers introduced traditional Indian elements into the space in very modern ways, creating an urban dining experience without having to leave the suburbs. It was critical to attract a younger demographic while still appealing to the restaurants’ existing and loyal following.
Since opening in August of 2011, sales at this restaurant have doubled and the owner is thrilled with the results. It’s not uncommon for eager –diners to be lined up out the door. In seeking to bring back the young demographic to this family restaurant by modernizing, the owner has seen new customers from all ages and ethnicities increase across the board.
