It’s a known fact that the mellifluous Mangeshkar family is no stranger to restaurateurship! Following Sarjaa’s launch and grand success at Pune’s very own Aundh in 1996, Pandit Hridaynath Mangeshkar and the Mangeshkar family recently gifted Pune with yet another restaurant named Sarjaa – Restaurant and Bar in Wakad, Pune. While Cabinet Minister Aaditya Thackeray inaugurated the restaurant, the ceremonial grandeur was attended by the who’s who of the Marathi cultural universe including singers Usha Mangeshkar, Roopkumar Rathod, Sunali Rathod, Reewa Rathod and Saleel Kulkarni among other celebrities and dignitaries.
An excited Pandit Hridaynath Mangeshkar proudly chuckled, “Gavaiye khavaiye hote hai…,” literally paraphrasing to musicians are either gourmet chefs or they generally love to eat or feed!
Delighted by the idea, a relative avers, “Baba himself is a controlled eater but he understands peoples’ palettes. He lives to make people eat, and that makes him a great host.” Adds Hridaynath Mangeshkar, “It is an extremely exhilarating feeling to feed people food they relish. Sarjaa is all about all that savoury goodness followed by a dessert-y goodness!”
Famous for their delectable Indian, Oriental and Chinese cuisines, Sarjaa in Wakad is all set to surprise Lata didi’s fans! With a special menu dedicated to the legendary songstress, exclusive to Wakad, a special thali will be offered in vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian options.
Sarjaa, meaning the rising sun in Marathi, christened by Bharat Ratna Lata Mangeshkar herself, the restaurant is adorned by rare memorabilia of the Mangeshkar family for the fans to see, spicing up the décor and the lively ambience! With 440 regale dining seats unfurled over an expansive 12,000 square feet property in the prime locale of Wakad makes Sarjaa Restaurant & Bar a wholesome yet familial atmosphere. Not just that, there is also a lavish banquet space for those in need to luxe-up their celebrations.
