Co-owners Sharath and Nitesh, who grew up in Mangalore, have put together a menu that reflects their childhood memories of fragrant seafood curries and specialties their mothers would cook along with Mumbai street foods.
Sula Indian Restaurant Cocktail Program
Sula on Main also boasts a cocktail program with traditional Indian spices like tamarind, star anise, and amla. The electic cocktails were curated in partnership with Jeff Savage, Canada’s Bartender of the Year as awarded by Canada’s 100 Best.
