Lalitpur, May 13, 2024: Renowned Master Chef Santosh Shah has introduced a tantalizing culinary experience with the inauguration of ‘Mithila Thali’ restaurant in Jhamsikhel, Lalitpur, aimed at promoting the rich heritage of Mithila cuisine and culture.

Partnering with his brothers Dilip and Chef Laxman, Chef Santosh invested approximately fifty lakh rupees to bring the flavors of Mithila to the heart of Kathmandu. The venture follows the success of Mithila Thali’s inception in Janakpur last year, a testament to Shah’s passion for Mithila culture and cuisine since his childhood.

“Mithila Thali is a tribute to the vibrant flavors and artistic traditions of Mithila,” remarked Chef Santosh, whose culinary expertise has garnered acclaim both locally and internationally. With an investment of around 3 crore rupees, Mithila Thali in Janakpur offers not only delectable dishes but also residential facilities, now extended to the new location in Jhamsikhel.

Operating from 10 am to 10 pm, the restaurant promises a diverse menu, including signature dishes like non-veg curry, Janakpur lassi, and rasamlai, presented in the ‘Daily Diet’ thali. Priced at 550 rupees, patrons can relish a fusion of chokha, rice, ghee roti, taruwa, tilauri, and salad, complemented by the exquisite Tawa fish from Janakpur.

Moreover, Mithila Thali’s ambiance showcases the intricate artistry of Mithila artists, with patrons encouraged to support these artisans by purchasing their artwork. Notably, a portion of the proceeds from each meal served at the restaurant will be dedicated to supporting various social causes, including assistance for the underprivileged, orphans, single women, and girls.

Looking ahead, the team behind Mithila Thali envisions expansion both domestically and internationally, with plans to introduce their culinary delights in Gaushala, Kathmandu, Biratnagar, and Birgunj in the near future. Furthermore, aspirations to launch Mithila Thali in Delhi and Doha underscore their commitment to showcasing Mithila’s culinary heritage on a global scale.

With its delectable offerings and dedication to promoting Mithila culture, Mithila Thali emerges as a beacon of culinary excellence and cultural preservation, inviting patrons to embark on a gastronomic journey enriched with tradition and flavor.
