There’s a certain kind of magic to Indian food that’s steeped in tradition, but in recent years, modern Indian cuisine has grown in popularity with unique contemporary twists that tantalise our taste buds. But what happens when you marry the two?

From Oct 15 to Oct 28, Tiffin Room, one of Singapore’s most historic Indian restaurants located at Raffles Singapore, is collaborating with modern Indian restaurant and grill bar, Thevar, for a special four-hands dinner.

Jointly presented by Chef Kuldeep Negi of Tiffin Room and Chef Mano Thevar of Thevar, the curated six-course set menu presents authentic flavours juxtaposed with inventive combinations, delivering a unique Indian culinary experience in the signature colonnaded space.

“At Tiffin Room, it is the symphony of authentic flavours and traditional cooking techniques that the community has come to love. Working with Chef Thevar to present this special menu has been a treasured experience, and we are excited to welcome the community to enjoy this sensational, unique experience,” said Chef Negi.
