Kamala Mills popular for its innovative eateries in Mumbai has South High Kitchen & Bar joining the clan. Traditional South Indian dishes get the right mix of smooth cocktails and a perfect ambiance at this newly opened restaurant. Starting only a few weeks back, this place is already drawing foodies to its Sadhya lunch served on a Banana leaf every afternoon for office hours and more. There is a special menu for tea time snacks and a bar menu with their signature cocktails and mocktails. For patrons who miss their Punjabi Chicken Curry, the menu comes with a non-South Indian section too.

We walked in during the weekend lunch hour. As we entered we were pleasantly greeted with stone top tables, wooden benches, and cheeky wall graffiti. The decor is a nice blend of kitsch and simplicity. The menu covers offerings from all the 4 Southern states and has a fair spread for meat lovers too (except beef).

We began our food journey here by ordering one of their signature cocktails the Mampulam Kari Martini and their mocktail the Imli soda. The Martini was a blend of Mango pulp mixed with Martini, infused with Curry leaves and a hint of chili. It tasted slightly bitter along with being sweet. The Imli soda was a mix of feisty tamarind and chilli put together in lemonade. Both their cocktail and mocktail sections deserve special mention for bringing together the best of Dakshin with a modern twist and is a must try. Moving on with starters we ordered for the Narukku Dosa. Meet Dosa taco with chicken or mutton keema as per your choice. We say yeah!! For the main course, we opted for the traditional Neer Dosa along with Meen da Gassi. Meen da Gassi is a Mangalorean coconut based curry with spiced Surmai/Prawn/Pomfret of your choice. The curry tasted brilliant with tangy undertones. This was a perfect accompaniment to the modest Neer Dosa. 

One could order for the traditional Thali with unlimited starters of Medu vada, Sweet potato vada, and Idlis. For the main course, the Thali comes with Dosa, Kerala paratha and rice served with 3 veg curries, and 3 desserts at the end. It is priced at Rs 325. The Thali is best suited for people coming in large groups and will be quite the traditional fare.

Our explorations of the ‘Dakshin’ food culture left us completely satisfied. However we found the waiting staff a little unfamiliar with the menu, and we hoped they knew better. The food did compensate for it though. Try out South High Kitchen & Bar for a make-over of your familiar South Indian dishes.
