Meet the owner

Harsh Chawla wants to throw some water —or perhaps wine—on what he feels is the erroneous assumption that beer is the best beverage to pair with Indian cuisine. “I am a firm believer of not having beer with Indian food,” says Harsh, sitting at the bar of his popular St. Clair West restaurant, Pukka. “Beer before Indian food, great. Beer after Indian food, awesome. But not with.”

One of Pukka’s specialties is pairing a diverse array of wines with its Indian dishes. “Typically Indian food is perceived as a heavy food that you cannot have wine with,” explains Harsh, “but what happens is Indian food is really complex…and beer bloats you.”

    We came here for our 2 year wedding anniversary - we were blown away!! Atmosphere is beautiful and the food is beyond incredible. Service was prompt and so friendly. The pakora and paneer are a must!

    Went to Pukka las...

    Went to Pukka last night. I found them randomly. I haven't had Indian food for awhile so it was a pleasant surprise. The food was delicious! I'll definitely go back to try out the rest of the menu. Nice, small restaurant with friendly staff.
