Daarukhana is a district in the city of Mumbai; and it means food and drinks in Hindi. Here in Hong Kong, meanwhile, Daarukhana is also a restaurant in Wan Chai, dedicated to delivering contemporary Indian cuisine influenced by French cooking techniques.
Sanat Patel, CEO of Daarukhana, was already an experienced hospitality professional in Mumbai when he opened his first restaurant in Central, serving Indian street food, four years ago. He decided there was also space in the market for a high-end Indian dining experience, and opened Daarukhana in November last year.
Daarukhana’s menu features a selection of flavourful dishes from different parts of India, with innovative touches delivered by Executive Chef Valice Francis. The restaurant also breaks with tradition in its decor, with a modern interior defined by brushed metal, geometric patterns and gleaming marble.
