Saha takes its name from its award-winning chef Abhijit Saha, whose culinary masterpieces are not the only creations of his to bless this Indian restaurant’s stylish premises at the National Gallery Singapore in Singapore’s City Hall. With walls adorned with photographs from the man behind the kitchen’s travels throughout India, you can be sure that the dishes served here are equally astonishing. If you find Saha’s selections too outré to form a decision, why not go for the culinary adventure represented by this Indian restaurant’s tasting menu. Take the road less travelled – it all leads to Saha on St Andrew’s Road.
Saha’s cuisine is typified by regional Indian dishes fused with a modernistic, international sensibility. Preserving the essence of Indian cuisine, but presenting their selection in an artful manner worthy of the finest nouvelle cuisine, Saha almost suggests an Indian fusion ethos. Far from it. Saha’s aesthetics – in terms of decor and dishes – are indeed deeply progressive, but at the beating heart of it all is a time-honoured and traditional approach to Indian cookery. Behind the scenes in Saha’s City Hall, Singapore premises at the National Gallery Singapore on St Andrew’s Road, head chef and founder Abhijit Saha and his team are skilled at binding fresh ingredients, skilful cooking techniques unique to India, and – naturally – judiciously in-house blended spices tailored to each dish and diner’s taste. Saha presents a sophisticated interpretation of Indian cuisine classics.
Perhaps Saha’s genius is best represented by the manner in which they manage to subtly fuse Singaporean and Indian cuisines. There’s little fanfare – the philosophy is more emphatically that of seasonal and locally-sourced rather than fusion cuisine for its own sake – but the same quietly groundbreaking attitude that informs the restaurant’s look and feel informs the make-up of dishes that incorporate Singaporean delicacies into a firmly Indian foundation. Sunseekers and people-watchers will be delighted that Saha also houses a spacious terrace bar outside its City Hall premises, where avant-garde mixologists prepare signature cocktails, including one or two with an Indian twist.
Restaurant was a little hard to locate but when found it it was worth the walk! Food was impeccable will return. Service was great. Definitely
