Zeera located at Conrad Pune is an authentic Indian restaurant with a show kitchen. The elegantly designed space impresses as one steps in what with plush seating, stylish interiors and a regal look. Located below the lobby level of the hotel, Zeera serves traditional Indian flavours with authentic recipes. The menu features traditional signature recipes with emphasis on set meals.
The food is influenced by Awadhi cooking techniques so the menu features authentic Nawabi kebabs, Awadhi mains and curries, Dal-E-Khaas, etc. The idea is to showcase time-honored cuisine in a modern and stylish setting while not comprising with the original flavours of the food.
Indian cuisine is incomplete without the mention of thaalis which are elaborate plated meals. Arranged on a single platter, the thaali manages to successfully showcase the best of what Indian cooking has to offer. The most interesting part is that the thaali changes its textures and flavours as one travels across our country which has so many varieties of cuisines.
