Launched in 2001, with restaurants spread across India and outside its shores too, ‘The Yellow Chilli’ chain has been serving its patrons with excellent and innovative Indian cuisine. Apart from the food, the common thread that binds all the restaurants is that the décor everywhere is contemporary and chic with beautiful elements. Beautiful furnishings in muted tones, soft music, combined with an exquisite use of glassware and cutlery seamlessly set the tone for a fine dining experience. To top it all the service is on par with the best across the world. These restaurants are designed to cater to the myriad tastes of its discerning guests.
The Yellow Chilli menu reflects Sanjeev Kapoor’s culinary excellence and is drawn from the North-West Frontier area with exotic picks from the Mughal era and specific regions of Punjab. It includes some of his signature dishes, both in vegetarian and non-vegetarian options, like Shaam Savera, Lalla Mussa Dal, Lawrence Road Tandoori Murgh, Puran Singh da Tariwala Murgh, Raan Buzzkazi and decadent desserts like Gulab-e-Gulkand and the likes. The menu in Goa also features some exotic preparations made from the fresh sea produce that is available in this region – Bhatti ka Jhinga, Fish Tikka Masala, Rawa Fry, Home Style Curry with choices like pomfret, king fish, tiger prawns or lobsters (depending on the catch).
Speaking at the event, the partners elucidated on their reasons for choosing The Yellow Chilli in Goa, “The quest for finding the right partner to put Goa on the global culinary map led to the association with SK Restaurants that is carrying forward the dreams of Chef Sanjeev Kapoor by bringing tasty food at affordable prices. The Yellow Chilli is truly redefining Indian food globally and we are more than happy to be associated with such a dedicated and hardworking team under the guidance of the Masterchef himself.”
Sanjeev Kapoor says “I love the entire vibe and feel of this place and Goa has always been special to me. I have feasted on the authentic fare here and since the time I’ve done that, my affinity for this place and its cuisine has increased tremendously. It was more than time for me to bring my brand here as well and I found the perfect partners for the same.”
