About the kitchen

Cuisine Type: Indian Punjabi. I am Punjabi by ethnicity, therefore, my cooking predominantly is Punjabi. One can expect a huge variety of lentils, vegetables, breads and rice dishes in my home. India being a vast nation boasts of cuisines from various parts of the country and ethnic groups which is visible in my cooking as well, so you could find South Indian or Gujarati food. I love Mexican, Italian, Thai, Malaysian and continental cuisine too, which has had influence on my cooking over the years.

The spices used never over powered the main ingredients of the dishes. In fact it was a perfect balance which allowed me to savor every bite, especially the prawn curry. Had three rounds and wanted more.
Will definitely be on my bucket list.


Neera welcomed us with so much warmth. The appetizers served were spot on in their taste and originality. Her main course was of course her piece de resistance, having a little bit of Punjab served up on the table. Being vegetarian, I was spoilt for choice with the chole (garbanzo beans) curry being the tastiest of the lot. She is the true thing!


The food prepared was good and tasty. I like the hospitality rendered and felt at home. The host is really friendly and I felt just like being in my own home.I liked the appetizer and the desserts the most.That was something different. I love Indian food and the combination that night was perfect.
