Located in K11 is Black Salt, a casual Indian restaurant by the group behind Lotus Land and Currify, two long-standing Indian restaurants in Shanghai.
The space is simple enough; open plan that’s accommodating for groups. It’s casual mall dining.
However, the dining experience isn’t great due to the lack of air circulation and air-conditioning. Late summertime proved quite stuffy, and hopefully mall management can fix that stat.
Note: there is a lunchtime rush.
Food-wise, it’s slightly different and more upmarket than the dishes available at the other affiliate restaurants. A couple dishes like the curries do seem familiar, and there are a few fusion dishes.
Think of it as an upmarket Currify. It’s affordably priced and food is overall tasty. Extra points for the variety of sauces that comes served with different dishes.
