Elegant yet laid-back, this restaurant serves Indian cuisine as well as delectable cocktails.

Classic Kerala dishes here exude innovative, bold flavours that please the palate and complement the cleverly curated cocktails.

One of the signature cocktails is the Panipuri Margarita.

Take the delicate but robust-flavoured panipuri clipped daintily to the salted glass rim, dip it in the hooch, eat the sphere and down a healthy slurp of the drink.

It has a complex flavour with the panipuri adding texture, creaminess and crunch.

Dishes at Gin Rik Sha are curated to complement and enhance the cocktail flavours.

For example, Elderflower Gin Fizz can be paired with Lamb Arancini and Bang Bang Prawns, while RoseSecco goes with Vegetable Manchurian Balls and Chicken Lollipops.

Lavender Sour can be paired with Spicy Tuna and Mango Chicken Papadoms, balancing out the strong, fruity flavours of tuna and chicken.

The All-Rounder’s Delight cocktail is an interesting blend of tequila, house-made pandan and gula melaka syrup and a mix of citrus and vanilla extract, all artfully topped with kombucha.
