Speaking about the launch, Kamil Maredia, Co-Founder – LILT, says, “We are extremely thrilled to launch LILT in Mumbai that marks our strategic entry into the heart of the city. Me and my brother have always wanted to have a restaurant in Mumbai as we have such fond memories of going to school and growing up in this amazing city, it is an integral part of who we are. My love for all things Asian came about while I was living and working in Boston where my palettes truly missed relishing on the flavors of India. Having eaten in all the best restaurants in the USA and traveled extensively, the seed for LILT was planted. Through this new address, we are looking forward to creating exceptional experiences for our guests through our menu that covers all the flavours of Asia with a slight Indian touch.
Staying focused on offering a sensory culinary experience with the cuisine served, amid a high-energy ambiance, LILT is all set to revolutionize Asian dining. So, if you are in a mood for something new yet familiar and are in Lower Parel, head down to the new LILT. It’s bound to be a blast. (Excerpt from a release)
