Indian restaurant Mohalla – which means “my neighborhood/ my community” in many languages and cultures – opened in the Dubai Design District (d3). Mohalla is an ode to the flavourful cooking of the community neighbourhoods of India.
The concept and project is curated by managing director Panchali Mahendra, owned by Ahmass Fakahany, Altamarea Group & Atelier House Hospitality CEO & owner, along with Emirati entrepreneur, Abdulla Tawakul.
Located in the fashionable quarters of d3, Mohalla is an intimate and nostalgic experience with Indian street food and comfort food from all its corners. It is ingrained with authentic Indian flavours, vibrant colours and enhanced with a signature attention to detail, eclectic crockery and rhythmic music. The service is casual and enjoyed either on the table or on one of the lively street food counters.
The restaurant aims to provide the same authenticity known to the Indian childhood, complemented by contemporary interiors and an enchanting atmosphere. The design features stunning, warm interiors that project the essence of the raw and urban industrial environment. Interior designer, Samar Zakhem, took an immersive effort into the cultural roots in designing and detailing Mohalla. For example, the restaurant features an art wall, which is a custom hand sketch of an Indian street, hidden passages within the shutters to depict old and new India, custom designed carpets from Gujarat and peacock chairs, which illustrate the national bird of India.
The company chose the home of Mohalla in d3 because it embodies the ideal location to offer street food in style, bringing rural eating to a vibrant and creative urban setting. Mohalla will offer unexplored dishes from rural places of India tantalizing the palate with lost cuisines and various food cultures within the country.
Mohalla promises to transport diners to the streets of true India – the bustling cities and the quaint towns where you can experience the magic of India’s delectable street cuisine, with all its variety, spices, flavours and colours.
