Parsi Food in Mumbai – RESTAURANT SASSANIAN

Parsi food in its frank and relaxed ambience …

Parsi (or Parsee) is one of two Zoroastrian communities (the other being Iranis) majorly located in India and few in Pakistan. Parsis migrated from Greater Iran to Sindh and Gujarat, between the 8th and 10th century CE

The long presence of the Parsis in the Gujarat and Sindh areas of India distinguishes them from the smaller Zoroastrian Indian community of Iranis, who emigrated from Iran to South Asia in the 19th century and early 20th-century.

As is also the case for the Parsis, the Iranis predominately settled in the west-coast of India, in the states of Gujarat and Maharashtra. A concentration of their people live in and around the city of Mumbai.  (Source: Wikipedia)

SASSANIAN RESTAURANT

I have been to this restaurant, located at Marine Drive in Mumbai, a  few times before – the first time accidently, the second intentionally; this time and after a very long time – loyally, to relish the tasty Parsi food in its frank and relaxed ambience.

Friends posing for a selfie, at the backdrop is the installation Ashva

Ashva is the Sanskrit word for a horse, one of the significant animals finding references in the Vedas as well as later Hindu scriptures.  This installation is done with hanging charcoal. Charcoal has been used since earliest times for a large range of purposes. This hanging installation depicts the qualities of horse and indicates movement. 

The Cube of Hope: Artist – Abha Talesara

This installation is inspired from the Cube Personality test where each of the elements represent an aspect of one’s personality. For example the horse represents the spirit while the cube represents the ego. The particular way in which the elements are set in this installation is representation of the artist’s personality.

‘Dhai Chaal ki Gati’ or ‘The Speed of the Knight’ (the character represented by a horse’s head in the game of Chess) is our take on the theme of this year’s Kalaghoda Art Festival: The Speed of Light.

An abstract idea that combines the mathematical expression of the speed of light  (3.0 x 108 m/s) with the checkered pattern of a chess board to create an installation that aims to commemorate the return of Kalaghoda.

When viewed from the front, one can see the three legs of the number ‘3’ which can be used to sit upon. The next part of the expression, ‘x’, is stretched to form a slide and with a step at its base. Further on , ‘10 raised to the power of eight’,  is symbolised by the ten steps leading to reach the massive high, ‘8’, from which one can enjoy everything that the Kalaghoda promenade offers from an elevated view point. The last part of the equation, ‘m/s’ becomes a low seating. When viewed from the designated ‘x’ mark one can experience the mathematical expression unfold.
