Chef Farrokh Khambata’s latest endeavor Joss, a reboot of his pan-Asian, South Mumbai institution is deemed ‘Boss Status’ by Team MissMalini. Located in Santacruz West, Joss is just as trendy as its Kala Godha counterpart. From the tastefully experimental food and artisan cocktail menu, we sampled delicate flavors from as Far East as Vietnam to Japan.

The Rock Corn Tempura and Kiwi Daquiris, in particular had us wondering why our palettes were never treated to such delights before. Must-trys include the King Crab and Silver Cod Dumplings, the Apple Wood Smoked BBQ Chicken, flaming Whiskey Prawns, smoking Cosmo and the fiery Mango Chili Margarita. The presentation of steaming dishes and drinks was impeccable!

In addition to a fine dining experience, the DJ was spinning a toe tapping mash-up of retro music that made us all party like it was 1999!

Joss, true to its name – (Joss means Luck) – was incredibly lucky for us, as not only did we run into the wonderfully gracious Anupam Kher, we were also treated to a monologue from his American film, Silver Linings Playbook! Other celeb spotting included Randhir KapoorArmaan Jain and Masaba and Neena Gupta.
