A Little History about the lunch Platter...
Traditionally in Southern India people sit on the floor and eat a platter of food like this served on a banana leaf which is also placed on the floor. Rice, bread and all the curries are served on a flat banana leaf all next to each other.
At agni, we’ve tried to recreate aspects of this tradition. We have a seating arrangement that allows you to enjoy the sitting-on-the-floor xperience. The lunch platter, although served in a metal plate - thali, but is lined with a banana leaf and the curries are served in natural plant fiber cups instead of being placed directly on the banana leaf, making it more convenient for our modern day selves to eat.
We truly hope you enjoy the experience!
