The same ol’ bohemian vibe, the same Greek comfort food and lots of wine, the iconic restaurant is set to bring some tranquility to the chaotic city of Mumbai. Designed by The Republic, with architecture by Nitin Khatwani and Bharat Shivdasani from Watermarks, the restaurant showcases a Mediterranean vibe through whimsical elements. Intimate, inviting and comfortable, the sprawling taverna is adorned with a classic Grecian white and blue decor.
Vintage terrazzo flooring, traditional music and the serene vibe, will all make you forget the Greek vacation you’re hungover on. Ornamental bougainvillea covers the courtyard that is perfect for an airy meal with good food and great wine. Adding to the experience is the plush, underground, wine cellar named after Dionysus – the god of wine.
If you want to experience Greek cultutre in all its glory, head to the restaurant for Wednesday and Thursday dinners and witness the customary plate smashing and Greek dance. Lastly, Greek food they say is traditionally enjoyed together with family and friends, and Thalassa embodies just this. Thus, encouraging people to try their assortment of dips and starters like Tzatziki, Tiro-Kaf- Teri, Gianio-Tiko, Feta Saganaki and the famous Mini Chicken Souvlakis. The Souvlakis and Gyros at the live wrap counter, unique to this outlet are worth a mention, while their authentic mains like Moussakas or the Kleftiko are must haves. Finally, their heady wines, cocktails and desserts will only make this an experience you want to relive.
