Situated at the mecca of food gatherings, Nksha is South Bombay’s newest address for premium north Indian indulgence that pays homage to the old Bombay glamour from the eras gone by. Reminiscent of the predominant Art Deco influences from a time dating back to the 1950s, the fine-dine resto bar derives strong influences from Churchgate’s ancient architectural style and is an equal blend of old and contemporary inspirations. The restaurant stands proudly re-imagined on Churchgate Street, an avenue once frequented as the prime location of public dining by the city’s gliterratis and elites.
The space is a well-calibrated amalgam of rarity, delicacy, opulence and art in a simultaneous motion, thanks to the brilliant design sensibility of NSA Architects Neesha Alwani and Shruti Jalan. The elegance of the space here lies in rather minor details that include geometric shapes and patterns, gold and metal designs, walls, wall sconce and the antique patina finishes. The colour scheme of the space exudes subtlety despite the high contrasts, with deep forest green hues dominating the floor and bright coral shades washing the walls and the ceiling. Walk in to find the thoughtfully purchased cutlery that suitably complements the table top. Other than this, find antique brass and framed arches as the signature elements that check all the boxes for a setting that is a modern luxurious revival of the vintage era.

As a social club our idea was to create a space that allows for free-flowing conversations, that allows for a space that engenders socialising and the medium for this is in the selection of colours for the space, the warmth that comes from the wood panels, to specially designed furniture which has been created in a way that allows for tables to have a sense of intimacy, while at the same time if one chooses to they can engage with the high energy of the space.
The space steers clear of stereotypical Asian themes to embrace an atmosphere of fine dining transcending time—whether evoking the 70s or contemporary elegance.Lighting plays a pivotal role, crafting an intimate focus on the customer experience. The delicate equilibrium between functionality and aesthetics is meticulously maintained, with each element handcrafted and designed for an experience that allows for familiarity for the space to build while never allowing for diners to grow out of the vibe of the space.
