The Leela Gandhinagar opened the doors of their speciality Indian restaurant- Diya, offering a mélange of authentic handpicked ingredients that represents a distinctive culinary trail from the ancient to modern India created by a talented Indian Master Chef at the helm.
The cuisine at Diya embodies a mélange of authentic handpicked ingredients that represents a distinctive culinary trail from ancient to modern India created by Master Chef Mohammad Javed, also known as the Master of Spices, at the helm. Diya offers a wide variety of vegetarian options, including many delectable treats from the Northwest Frontier cuisine, to indulge in.
Diya represents a stimulating sense of curiosity created by an interesting play of light on the carved contours of the silver metallic ceiling. The interiors of the Diya are elegantly anointed with champagne gold paisley brocade walls, juxtaposition with beautiful Venetian mirrors and artwork showcasing the archaeological grandeur of Gujarat.
The private dining space in Diya is exclusively designed to create a myriad of memories along the lines of the artisan who has painstakingly stitched together the mosaic patterns in the ‘thikri’ designed walls. The handcrafted silver metallic ceiling compliments the contemporary chandeliers and makes dining at Diya a magical experience.
“Culinary excellence is an integral part of The Leela experience. Diya is the jewel of The Leela Gandhinagar, and its launch further enhances the culinary offerings. We are confident Diya will be the new address for all food connoisseurs of the twin cities of Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar to revisit their happy culinary memories,” said Jaideep Anand, Vice President and General Manager, The Leela Gandhinagar and Mahatma Mandir Convention and Exhibition Centre Complex.
“Chef Mohammad Javed, who is at the helm of Diya, brings with him over a decade of cooing experience and stories from the lineage of Nizams of Hyderabad and Lucknow’s famous Tundai Kebabs and Kakori Kebabs to complete the package,” he added.
