Ishaara, Mumbai

With each passing day, the food industry is seeing numerous evolutions in terms of taste and the standards of hospitality. As we see the growing demand for sensitivity towards society while pursuing any business, the food industry is no exception. You might have already heard about restaurants like Echoes in Delhi and Cafe Arpan in Mumbai where they hire differently-abled staff to look after you. The newcomer Ishaara gathered much love this year. While the interior of the restaurant is inviting to say the least, what is most mesmerizing about this place is the service staff who are speech and hearing impaired. Visit here and enjoy some of their most celebrated regional-inspired dishes like duck Galouti, besan laddoo ice cream and much more.
