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.

Mohalla’s new space is 20 per cent bigger than its original sister venue at The Esplanade in Riyadh, with a capacity to seat 180 guests.

Expect the same kind of aesthetic, but with new, exciting design elements, promising to transport guests to the eclectic streets of India.

The new outpost’s menu offers a lot of dishes from the 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.

“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 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 Panchali Mahendra, managing director of Atelier House Hospitality.

This newest opening marks 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.
