In Mandarin ‘JIA’ means ‘family.’ And rightly so, JIA, the quaint and aesthetically pleasing independent restaurant, is all set to open its doors to all the foodies out there. With its sophisticated and quaint setting, the elegant, 7-days-a-week establishment is gearing up to alter the dynamics of the way both locals and visitors across the globe choose to spend their outings in a well-versed, fun-filled and scrumptious manner.
From the kitchen comes a memorable feast of spectacular cuisines, all created with passion, refinement, and precision. At the helm of all these culinary affairs are Asian aficionados Neville and Michelle Vazifdar, founders of Royal China and Kuai kitchen who launched JIA with a vision of entering the pan-asian dining segment and merging Chinese, Japanese, and Thai cuisines.

“When we started Royal China, we wanted to bring the Chinese fine dining concept to Mumbai which worked well. A few years ago, we decided that we wanted to do something a little untraditional that we could not do in Royal China which is why we started JIA. We were able to experiment with different Asian cuisines such as Japanese and Thai. We really enjoyed this process as we were able to incorporate different items on the menu,” said Michelle, who earlier resided in London and moved to Mumbai after her marriage 12 years ago, bringing with her a fresh perspective on Asian cuisine.
