This is Ahmedabad’s first 4 Star Luxury Hotel since 1960 for which Rustom Cama dreamt of. He made this possible with the help of the then Mayor of Ahmedabad Shri Chinnubhai Chimanlal Sheth and Architect Charles Correa. Correa was a major figure in contemporary architecture around the world. With his extraordinary and inspiring designs, he played a pivotal role in the creation of an architecture for post-Independence India. This is the reason why you feel special while entering Cama. Jahangir Son of Rustom Cama who studied automobile engineering in London joined his father’s business. Cama was opened for business just a day before the state of Gujarat was formed.
Stunning though it may be, you cannot eat the scenery, so what’s for dinner?
We ordered Chicken Clear Soup, Kebab Platter, Dhansak, Murgh Tikka, Garlic Naan, Lacha Paratha & Chaaassss (any meal is incomplete without buttermilk in our kathiawad).
Chicken Clear Soup with mostly root vegetables had smaller, shreeded pieces of chicked. This was amazingly fragrant, golden, savory soup what we want to eat at winter nights.
A mixed platter of hot Kebab which contained seekh kebab which was tender, Juicy and perfectly cooked. Kebab is a sensitive dish which can spoil the name of establishment if not prepared with utmost care. Kebabs were accompanied by tandoori chicken & fish which were equally delicious.
Dhansak Brown Rice Mutton : It is traditional high protein Parsi delicacy where mutton is cooked with panchmel dal and served with fried rice topped with golden brown onions . Dhansak is not a celebratory dish. Parsis traditionally abstain themselves from non-veg food for the first three days after death. On fourth day, Dhansak is made which signifies that mourning is over. Dhansak combines elements of Persian and gujarati cuisine as it is made by cooking mutton with a mixture of lentils and vegetables. “Dhan” is Persion/Urdu word for “Seed” which refers to grains or legumes and “Sak” in gujarati means green vegetables.
Dhansak at La Vista was perfectly cooked having a balance of spices with soft notes of ginger,asafetida & Cummins.
Murgh Tikka with gravy – Pieces of chicken marinated with Indian Spices & Cooked in Tandoor was Okay.
Garlic Naan – Flavorful, Soft & Crispy.
Lacha Paratha : Soft perfectly lacha.
The Space The walls covered with veneer, carefully placed lamp shades, wrought-iron chandelier, use of rich textiles and carpets, gives you the feel of right harmony of colors, textures and elements surrounding you. The Thrill, The Hope begins at the door itself. Wheelchair accessible.
