Massive restaurants throws in another innovative bomb! Pa Pa Ya opens its doors at Palladium Mall, Mumbai.
After Masala library and Made In Punjab, one thing that you expect from the Kalras, is fancy presentations and an off beat menu. That’s exactly what Pa Pa Ya is all about. The makers call it a High Energy Dining – Modern Asian Bistro. On the launch night, that we were invited to, the energy was definitely high, the music was peppy and the ambiance was vibrant, just how we like it.
As you enter the space, you can’t help but notice the in-your-face, 3D mapping installations all over the place with lazer projectors creating a mini light show on them. A long bar on the left and a couple of tables in the rest of the space, give the place a rather casual vibe as opposed to the other properties under this umbrella which tilt more to the finer dining.
Coming to the food and drinks, we tried mostly the appetisers. The sushi tower called the Sushi Matrix looked breathtaking and the non vegetarian ones were delicious. The vegetarians didn’t look quite happy with their share though. The dehydrated crispy lotus stem is a must try here. Crispy, tangy and delicious!
They also have tacos on the menu. How are they Asian? Well, the filling has an Asian twist to it, which are again quite tasty. The Tuna Pizza is another great dish on their menu! Makes for a great munchy to go with your drink.
The cocktails are their highlight! Whether it’s the Lighthouse – served in a lightbulb (yes, you read that right), the Tokyo Summer -Wasabi infused cocktail with Vodka and Gari or the Wise Whiskey – a superb concoction topped with rosemary foam; everything was top notch!
Overall, Pa Pa Ya is a great option for all those pre gaming nights or for a fun time with your girlfriends. We are definitely making a second trip here to try out their desserts and mains! And some more cocktails of course.
