Shizusan – Mumbai’s authentic Asian shop house serves delicious dimsums, sushis and all things delicious from South East Asia.
Since its opening two month ago, I visited this new restaurant in Lower Parel 5 times. Yes, I am obsessed with its delicious, fresh and authentic food! My favourites (so far) are: Lobster Moneybags, Quinoa Sushi and Miso Aubergine.
Deepti Dadlani, Marketing Head of Bellona Hospitality (the company that owns Shizusan) suggested the Miso Aubergine to a vegan friend from New York when I first visited the restaurant. Though I generally like Aubergine, it did not sound exciting enough (just Aubergine) to try when you can enjoy a variety of fancy sushi, sashimi and dimsums. But wow! Thank God we listened to Deepti and tried the Miso Aubergine which is probably my absolute favourite dish on the menu.
Though Shizusan is part of Bellona Hospitality, the F&B arm of Phoenix Mills, it’s not at all a mall restaurant. The ground floor houses a long sushi bar at which hungry business people grab a quick lunch, while friends catch up over flavourful dimsums at small tables. The top floor hosts the bar and you hear big groups of people laugh and enjoy their dinner.
Deepti Dadlani and Romil Ratra (CEO, Bellona Hospitality) are not just the brain behind Shizusan. They put all their heart into this new Asian eatery in Lower Parel and their souls speak to you as soon as you enter this beautiful restaurant and bar. If you are anything like me and you enjoy authentic South East Asian food, you must absolutely try Shizusan!
