Taste of Asia
Pa Pa Ya is a modern Asian bistro & tapas bar from the House of Massive Restaurants and best described as a chic, modern and radical reinterpretation of Asian cuisine.
What is it?
PaPaYa is an eclectically decorated contemporary restaurant with an innovative and experimental menu ranging across Asia. This one is from the makers of Indian restaurants like Masala Library and Made in Punjab.
What’s in it?
Oozing glamour with its dimly lit, crimson-walled interiors, the projection mapping on a continuous installation of 3D hexagons through the restaurant give the space a strange, sci-fi feel. Metal exoskeletons and the high energy music are sure to keep you engaged at the new restaurant of Palladium Mall in Mumbai.
What to Drink?
Sip on Lighthouse, a lemongrass infused vodka, shaken with pineapple juice, orange juice and Thai galangal syrup served in a light bulb shaped glass. Yin Yang is another option which is a vodka shaken with caramelised pineapple, cardamom, served in a chilled martini glass topped with Camomile tea foam.
What to Eat?
Sushi Matrix, a combination of 19 pieces of Nigiri, Maki, Uramaki served on a special handcrafted wooden plate, Pork Belly Skewers, Miniature Sushi Burgers (Rs.285 for four pieces), Sushi Pizza Slices (Rs.325 for four pieces) , Crisp Lotus Stem Chips (Rs.325, the falafel-like edamame and chickpea sliders with chilli mayonnaise (Rs.375) Be it the presentation or the flavour, there is a tinge of uniqueness to everything that arrives on your table.
Using exotic and imported ingredients for its multi element dishes, Pa Pa Ya has a unique menu to offer. We do wish they expand as the restaurant is small and tables are booked days in advance.
Rating: 4/5 stars
