Metro Peugeot Restaurant Of The Year 2017

Metro Peugeot Restaurant Of The Year 2017

Fort Lane eatery Cassia has once again taken out the accolade of Metro Peugeot Restaurant of the Year 2017 while Dariush Lolaiy’s Cazador is runner up.


Cassia, Fort Lane


The sleek, contemporary design combined with detailed service complement a menu of quality fresh New Zealand produce prepared using sub-continental flavours. Cassia’s philosophy is based on the marriage of seasonal New Zealand ingredients with the flavours and cooking techniques of India creating refined Indian dishes that challenge traditional notions of Indian cuisine. Cassia also took out the Best Smart-Dining Restaurant in what was a big night for Sid and Chand Sahrawat, the inspirational team behind the success story.

Other notable achievements this year include the rise and rise of Cazador, with the eatery adding Best Neighborhood Bistro and Best Chef (Dariush Lolaiy) to it’s extensive list of accolades for the night.

The full list of winners and hat ratings are published in the May issue of Metro Magazine, on sale now.
