Cassia’s delicious new lunch menu is the perfect excuse to visit the restaurant’s new address

It’s been a swift three months since Cassia re-opened, the team taking the challenges of their former, underground setting in their stride, and setting up a new iteration of Cassia within the SkyCity precinct. We’ve long been fans of Sid and Chand Sahrawat’s modern Indian offering, but at this new address, we’d argue that this is Cassia at its very best.

Of course, this is something the most loyal followers of the restaurant will know well — having likely already nabbed themselves a booking or two at the new destination. But for those yet to find an excuse to visit (or perhaps a coveted reservation), the new lunch menu offering is just the push you need.

Cassia lunch
Left: Tandoori Chicken Taco  Right: Pani Puri

Available Friday through Sunday, Cassia’s incredible new three-course lunch menu highlights the restaurant’s famous culinary prowess. To begin, all diners can snack on two of Cassia’s most beloved starters; crispy pani puri, with its traditional accompaniments of potato, chickpea and mint, alongside the more modern tandoori chicken taco — a new fusion addition for the new address.

To follow, diners have the choice of four mains, each as delicious as the next. Here you’ll have to make the challenging and all-important decision between mushroom with green chilli and truffle, lamb seekh served with spinach and mushroom, market fish with kerala and curry leaf, or tandoori chicken with lababdar and radish. All are, of course, served with garlic naan and basmati rice. (Essential vehicles for enhancing all the flavour of the mains.) At a mere $58 per person, this menu is as perfect for a simple lunch catch-up as it is for a more planned affair with friends. And to finish? A serving of Cassia’s famed tropical sorbet with coconut and lychee. A menu we could hardly fault.
