Life Is a Beach - Ziya - The Oberoi, Mumbai
?There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul.? -Victor Hugo The depth of the ocean has always been a matter of intrigue and curiosity for most of us. Metaphorically, this deepness can be linked to that of our soul, as this quote simply articulates. We, as humans, are defined by the complexity of our insights on one hand, and by the simplicity of our emotions and endeavours on the other. In this quest, to attain an understanding of the gravity our mind and soul, it becomes essential to first crawl back to nitty-gritties, things that lift up your spirit without you even being aware of it.

Watching the glowing horizon of the sunset right in front of your eyes while witnessing the sky transcend into a pitch-dark blanket beautifully lit with stars, complementing the faintly shimmering moonlight, makes for an unmatchable experience. Witness the sweeping views of the ocean at Ziya - The Oberoi, Mumbai ? a fine-dining paradise. Ziya boasts of a sophisticated decor, and can well be regarded as a gem on the Queen?s necklace. Ziya announces return of the multi-award winner and the twice Michelin-starred Vineet Bhatia, the owner and chief chef of the restaurant. The restaurant name is derived from the word diya, which means glow, light, and splendour ? as rightly epitomized by the grandeur created by this restaurant. Ziya offers modern, contemporary interpretations of the Indian cuisine with a dash of international flavours, or what is known to be ?evolved Indian cuisine? as asserted by Vineet. Ziya offers eight-course gourmand tasting menu, as well as Ziya Select, a characteristic lunch spread where different, assorted samplings from the menu are presented to you on a single platter. Enjoy these sumptuous offerings with a glass of fine wine, a la Four Seasons. The desserts are a treat for your senses.
