Sula, the popular Indian restaurant, will be opening its third Vancouver location, and this time they're headed to the West End.
The departing restaurant Kesari Kitchen at 1708 Davie St will be replaced by Sula, which likely assumed ownership of the business earlier this year.
Initially, Sula shared in an Instagram post on Feb. 23 a few of the exciting details about its third venture, though did not disclose the address at the time.
"This new location’s cocktail program will be designed by none other than Jeff Savage, head bartender at Fairmont Pacific Rim's Botanist. In addition to killer cocktails and an exciting menu, the third location’s beautiful space will be designed by Dave Wong, principal of WHG Design," notes Sula in its announcement.
Sula began on Commercial Drive, and in late 2020 revealed a second location headed for the vacated Reef restaurant space on Main Street.
The award-winning restaurant is known for its menu of curries, Indian breads, and tandoori meats and vegetables, all of which are prepared using recipes from the Indian states of Rajasthan, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Karnataka, Kerala, Chennai and Goa.
Sula is also known for its well-appointed interiors, using vibrant jewel tones, warm wood furnishings, and greenery in its decor.
While restaurant operators said they hoped to be open in the West End this spring, it seems Sula's debut will be this winter, according to its Instagram feed @sulaindianrestaurant.
