At delightful, tranquil Wildgrass, grab a table at one of the thatched pavilions dotted around the lush garden and tuck into excellent local and regional specialities categorised by their origins (Odishan, Chilikan and Puriwala). The tandoori pomfret is one of the best things we've ever had, anywhere, and the seasonal vegetable specialities are not to be missed either.

Ask about their Odishan-cuisine cookery classes (₹500), which include a morning trip to the local food market to buy the ingredients you’ll cook for lunch.
