Indian restaurant Ellora by Vikas Khanna open now

Michelin-starred chef, Vikas Khanna, has announced another culinary collaboration with JA Resorts & Hotels, with the opening of new seasonal restaurant Ellora by Vikas Khanna, at JA Beach Hotel in JA The Resort.

Described by Khanna as, ‘a seasonal culinary experience inspired by the traditional flavours of India,’ the new restaurant will fill the gap while the resort’s signature restaurant, Kinara by Vikas Khanna, is temporarily closed throughout the coming months. As such, the menu at Ellora by Vikas Khanna will also feature firm favourites from the original Kinara menu. 

Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, Khanna has worked on an initiative to feed families in need throughout India. ‘As we were planning the opening of Ellora by Vikas Khanna, I was simultaneously coordinating the Feed India initiative, whereby we organised a supplier network of food and rations and delivered more than 25 million meals to Indian families in need. I was feeling deeply enveloped in the power of food and nourishment on a new level and wanted this emotion to permeate Ellora. I’m truly feeling blessed for both the creations.’
