A Little Bit About Thava

Thava has earned a thriving reputation over the last nine years as one of the city’s finest Indian restaurants, with a menu that reflects recipes handed down to owner Mathew Abrahams by his mother. Abrahams, originally from Kerala, and Chef Philippe Frydman, who has been the consultant for Thava since the beginning, will continue to deliver Indian cuisine “with a difference” at their brand-new Montecasino restaurant, situated opposite Skoobs, near the grand staircase entrance.

The restaurant is adorned with artworks and statement pieces that carry symbolism and stories of their Indian heritage. The imposing carved wooden doors that fill the space of a facing wall were brought from India to provide a unique and spectacular backdrop to the restaurant. It’s about 250 years old and represents the ancient India.
