The Founder -Varli Singh
Born and raised across various parts of Asia and the Middle East, eclectic cuisines were a part of Varli Singh’s life from the beginning. However, her move to New York City was the true kick starter of her love affair with Indian cuisine. Witnessing the passion that world-renowned chefs had for perfecting their craft and the celebrity-like following they received for creating a great dining experience, Varli developed a unique vision for changing the landscape of Indian food.
In reviewing mainstream food guides like Zagats, the New York Times, Michelin reviews, etc. Varli realized that Indian restaurateurs and chefs needed a stronger voice to receive their due recognition. The Varli vision was born with a commitment to sensationalizing the cuisines she grew up loving and ensuring everyone has the opportunity to appreciate all that these foods have to offer.
