A little about why you started this brand/ your inspiration –
Vishay: The idea behind starting the kitchen was to serve people a food experience that they talk about from different parts of the country right here in Mumbai. Bringing together authentic local cuisine from across the country under one roof, the main objective of the kitchen is to be true to the dish and its roots. We aim to educate the people in Mumbai about the different dishes, and their flavors and give them a palate of foods from different parts of the country. The inspiration comes from the food itself and its ways of preparation from the origin city.

Vishay: Each dish has been curated by sourcing ingredients from the origin place and made to excellence in our kitchen.
