The dream of Samudhra was nurtured for two years and our story began last year. The owner of the restaurant, Mangesh Chinthamaneni, who is a food connoisseur says his love for food has inspired him to start Samudhra. He always felt the need for an upscale Indian restaurant in New Jersey as one always had to go to Manhattan to enjoy fine Indian food. He saw his heart set on this thought for very long and decided to open one such restaurant himself. And the story began thereon!
When the project started there was no general contractor. From the idea to interiors, all aspects of the restaurant were conceptualized, designed and executed by the owner himself. A lot of thought went into every detail such as the name, location, interiors, offerings, menus, recipes, ingredients, and facilities required for traditional cooking. For example, choosing a location conveniently accessible by neighbouring towns. Multiple food trials were carried out as part of the menu setting process. When considering ingredients careful research was done on quality and procurement of spices, meats & grains that form an integral part of Indian cuisine.
Our hand-picked menu is updated with new dishes regularly so that our guest can explore the great Indian food. Our commitment is to serve high standard authentic flavours of India. Food that is cooked daily and served fresh to our guests.
We are a team of warm and motivated individuals where each one of us loves what we do. We would also like to thank our vendors and other stakeholders who support us daily.
What a feeling, narrating Samudhra story to you all! It’s been a pleasure sharing our story with you all.
