An ingredient-driven restaurant housed in the city’s famous former industrial mill area, Masque is truly one-of-its-kind in India.

Moreover, all the produce is thoroughly washed using baking soda and salt before use.

What To Order: To get the full gourmet experience at your home, consider ordering the Pork Carnitas Tacos or Mushroom Sando meals.
