WHAT IS SAVYA RASA
An Eatery that offers the ultimate Epicurean Journey through Southern India
Savya Rasa was created to celebrate the richness of the cuisine and culture of Southern India. More often than not, due to stereotypes, most people outside of Southern India consider Idli, Vada, Sambar, Dosa etc as quintessential South Indian food. However, South Indian cuisine has all of this and so much more to offer. The team at Savya Rasa have travelled extensively across Southern India, researching and learning from local cooks, chef, grandmothers and housewives. These years of research have culminated in a menu that brings to patrons’ authentic dishes from eight regions, each with their distinct cultural identities.
The southern states stretch from the northern borders of Karnataka that touch Maharashtra down to the quiet backwaters of Kerala, to the temple towns of Tamil Nadu and up its beaches into the highly under explored state of Andhra Pradesh. The team of Savya Rasa travelled the length and breadth of South India and selected, to showcase, some of the unique and exquisite cuisines namely Kongunadu, Chettinad, Malabar, Nasrani, Mangalore, Mysuru and Nellore. Cooks were identified from the toddy shops of Kottayam to small restaurants in Karaikudi to messes in Nellore. A year of training, sharing of ideas, and hard work led to the carefully put together menu that one now sees at the restaurant

“Onam is a festival which marks the harvest season for Kerala. The 10-day festival culminates with a Grand Sadhya meal where families come together and eat.

With intricately designed Pookalams to enchanting music and a meal which has over 30 dishes, Ona Sadhya at Savya Rasa is line none other. Kerala being a very important part of the culinary heritage of the South and Ona Sadhya being one of the most popular festivals of the region, we at Savya Rasa want to make sure that we create as authentic an experience as possible to make us a one Stop destination for experiencing a Sadhya meal. With cooks from Kerala who join our kitchen team for the Sadhya period, ingredients and spices sourced directly from the region, Sadhya at Savya Rasa is a grand affair and an experience to be had.
