Our influences

Home to one of the world' s most ancient surviving civilizations, the Indian subcontinent - is both vast and diverse in terms of its people, language and cultural traditions. Dancing, music and culinary skills are just as important as any other aspect of life.

With its 29 states and 7 Union Territories, India measures 3214 Kms from north to south and 2933 Kms from east to west with a total land area of 3,287,263 sq kms.

What Indians eat varies by region and religion. Northern Indians eat more flat breads, while those from southern India prefer rice. In coastal states, such as Kerala and Bengal, fish dishes are popular. Chicken and mutton (sheep) are eaten more often in mountain and plains regions. In addition, many Indians-particularly Hindus, Brahmins, and Jains-are vegetarian.

India's rich history is the result of the diversity of languages, religions and traditions that have survived till date.

The Indian cuisine is divided into different categories, such as different regions or states of the country. From East to West and North to South, Indian cuisine stands by the phrase "Unity in Diversity". At Indian Village, we present you the cuisines from every corner of the country.

Indian cuisine is as delicious as it looks and the food is neutral with the right amalgamation of spices.

All in all, Indian Village is a perfect heaven for those who have an appetite for delightful food and a trip to this exotic land!

Our Culture

I have been to other Indian restaurants, so what is so different about this place?

"Seva" is a Sanskrit word meaning "selfless service". In ancient India seva was believed to help one's spiritual growth and at the same time contribute to the improvement of a community. This is the art of giving and the art of blessed action.

Our values are defined by ancient Indian tradition - 'Seva'. It is part of human instinct to care about making others happy.

Seva implies having a big, warm, welcoming heart. And Seva implies wanting to be incredible - top of the line - at all that we do. In line with our tradition we believe, small steps lead to great change and Seva is the karmic life preserver that keeps your spiritual head above water by helping others stay afloat.

Over and above our dedication towards offering a harmonious & relaxed dining experience, 'Seva' also entails an individual commitment from all our staff to embrace guests into 'Our Indian Village' and make them feel the warmth of our family from the bottom of our hearts.

A step into 'Our Indian Village' is designed to a replicate a step into the Indian subcontinent, abounding with the exciting sounds and fragrant spices that accompany local Indian village life but situated in a world class setting with equally sumptuous dishes.

There is an expression in Hindi - Aaram Se, meaning to 'Chill Out'. It is the rule of thumb in India. Because if you 'Aaram Se' - good things will come your way.
