Firangi Superstar is an exuberant, soulful, whimsical love letter to India, written with the curiosity of a sojourner,the adulation of a rock fan, the enthusiasm of one seeing the world, not for the first time, but with new eyes. It isthe coming together of conversations, encounters, and memories tied to this vibrant, magical land...
India is warm, affectionate and sometimes outrageous, but absolutely unforgettable; and this venue lives with the same verve. At once eccentric and mischievous with a touch of flamboyance, the entire affair creates something truly special: a dining experience like no other.
Now, let us take you on a cinematic journey, at once serious and whimsical. In this venue of outrageous peculiarity, an imagined perspective of India appears with a hint of vintage quirk. Taking cues from real life,from Bombay to Rajasthan, from Chennai to Kashmir, the venue pieces together textures, materials, décor,and furnishings to create experiences with the feeling of a film set. Here, every guest is a character, free to pen their own stories, either rightly serious or with a fair share of quirky comedy.
Start in the first of four rooms: the Officer’s Club in all its proper pish and posh leads to the Old Railway Room, where countless tales are waiting to be told. The pearlescent opulence of the Elephant Palace awaitsbut oh! turn around and find wilderness, tamed and mounted, in the Jungle Lodge. This visual joie-de-vivre is matched with touches, scents, and an eclectic mix of tunes, from the psychedelic rock of The Beatles to Indian Classics in the breath-taking vocals of Nicki Wells, all of which are curated to immerse and surprise.
The food here is not Indian as you know it, but Indian through another lens. Classics take on unexpected forms in the hands of Head Chef Thiru Gunasakaran, as they are reworked with a unique eye and modern approach.
Fuelled by the memory and influences of the food that he is most familiar with — what he ate at home and growing up; and shaped by his Western culinary background, Chef Thiru’s creations are authentically inauthentic. That is, rooted in history and tradition, but executed in a refreshing and playful way. What arrives on the plate gives rise to expectations that are immediately belied by the first mouthful – things are not what they seem but still, flavours are familiar and beckoning. To accompany these moments is a selection of explorative concoctions of Indian flavours and international spirits.
The menu at Firangi Superstar takes a modern approach to classic flavours, designed to take guests on a journey through India, seen through an imagined kaleidoscopic fantasy lens. Menu sections consist of Chutneys and Raitas, Small and Large plates, Sides, Rice & Bread, and Desserts. Just over half the menu is vegetarian.
Firangi Superstar presents a cocktail selection of soul-stealing brio. The restaurant’s cocktail menu strips it down, presenting an Indian take on classic cocktails – folks will soon find a favourite (or five). Start with what one can expect with flavours common in Indian cuisine, then combine the familiar with the unexpected. Pick your poison, and let the adventure begin.
