Dining at Sid Sahrawat restaurant Cassia brings you a stunning take on Indian cuisine, tucked away in Fort Lane just off Queen Street. Cassia serves up mouth-watering dishes and out-of-this-world presentation skills. This Indian cuisine is vegetarian-friendly, vegan options, and gluten-free options available. Some of the dishes at Cassia aren’t ‘blow-your-head-off’ spicy, but they are full of flavours and a general heat that might leave you with a tingly mouth feeling.

Our favourites off Cassia’s incredible menu is the charred eggplant, kasundi, chickpeas, tamarind polished off by a chocolate, banana cream, and walnut – ice cream, with bits of brownie, raspberries, and banana cream. Expect to pay a little more for your dishes at this fine dining restaurant, but it’s worth paying that little bit extra for the quality of food.
