Food connoisseurs are very fastidious about what they eat and where, and rightly so. Though fine-dining is often chastised for being too expensive and over the top, it is the authenticity, the fresh ingredients, and the experience that put the ‘fine’ in fine-dining. It is all about savouring authentic recipes that stay true to their roots. Discover why all the three restaurants at The Leela Mumbai are high on taste, flavor and freshness all of which combine to offer a perfect dining experience.
