Nueva, owned by Kohli, is the first-of-its-kind restaurant in India that serves authentic South American food! The unique restaurant, set up this year itself, boosts a major firepower in the form of two-time Gourmand Award winning Chef Michael Swami.

The menu might be everything South American, but the food also draws inspirations from Spain, Italy, Portugal, France, Japan and Asian cuisine. FULL MENU and restaurant REVIEWS.

India are looking for their first ever win against the Black Caps in the Twenty-20 format of the game and also, in the process, giving a fitting farewell to the veteran Ashish Nehra, who plays his last international match.
