Surya is more than just a stunning dining destination, it’s also a rather thoughtful ode to owner Sheel Joshi’s parents, who taught him the fundamentals of North Indian cooking. Each dish draws on a piece of his Indo-European upbringing, ranging from casual starters like Chilli Chicken to the awe-inducing—and award-winning—Prawn Mangalorean, swimming in a coconut base and garnished with mustard seeds, chillies, and curry leaves. The lunch specials come with a side of rice and naan, but for an extra dose of goodness, customers can add chutneys, onions and chilis, and yogurt- and cucumber-studded raita to their order. This is special occasion territory in its finest.
