Following the successful launch of the first Mohalla in Riyadh in March 2022, demand for its varied and homely offering has been overwhelming and a huge hit with diners in the Kingdom.

What can we expect from the new Mohalla outlet

Mohalla’s Riyadh Front venue will keep in line with the aesthetic of the brand’s existing outlets while also featuring new, exciting design elements, promising to transport guests to the eclectic streets of India.

The new outpost’s menu will offer a lot of dishes from existing Mohalla restaurants, including signature crowd favourites such as Raj Kachori, avocado Papdi Chaat, tender chicken kebab and Rayalaseema prawn curry, with some new additions to surprise and delight returning diners.

According to Panchali Mahendra, managing director of Atelier House Hospitality – the powerhouse boutique hospitality firm known for leading the successful launch, opening, and operation of bespoke restaurant concepts regionally and internationally – Mohalla’s new space will be 20 per cent bigger than its original sister venue at The Esplanade in Riyadh, with a capacity to seat 180 guests.

“Mohalla is the first homegrown Indian restaurant concept to be exported to KSA, and we are proud and delighted to be able to continue this expansion in such a short space of time. The launch of Mohalla’s first KSA outpost earlier this year was a stepping stone into the Saudi market. Due to the growing demand from KSA’s diners and Mohalla’s remarkably successful performance, the second opening in Riyadh came naturally to us,” says Mahendra.

This newest opening will mark Mohalla’s second outlet in Saudi Arabia and the third restaurant overall in the Middle East region, with more outlets confirmed to open across the Kingdom over the coming years.
