About Us

“KA in Egyptian mythology is the concept
of 'vital essence' that is sustained through food and drink”

Founded in 2011, KA is the country's first hospitality company to import Michelin starred restaurants in a stand-alone format. Our first enterprise was Hakkasan Mumbai, the Michelin-awarded establishment from London with outposts in the Middle East, Asia and USA. With the launch of Hakkasan, we took the first steps to redefining the food industry by setting enviable trends for the discerning Indian diner.

Soon after Hakkasan, we brought down Yauatcha, London's favourite dim sum and tea house to Mumbai. After the success of Yauatcha Mumbai, we expanded the brand, taking it to Bengaluru in 2013. Soon after, Yauatcha became the toast of Kolkata in 2014.

In 2017, KA brought down Nara, Bangkok's go-to Thai institution, which brings this vibrant cuisine in a modern setting, complemented by warm Thai hospitality, in the heart of BKC and Colaba.

After introducing renowned global F&B brands to India, we ventured into cultivating homegrown brands. Our first is CinCin, an Italian-inspired restaurant and bar, that was launched in Mumbai in 2017. Focused on cicchetti, handmade pasta and wine, CinCin offers a taste of the spirit of Amalfi in the city's commercial capital, BKC.
