HOWLING WINDS, STEEP RAVINES, endless stretches of land, limitless potential for camaraderie.
A setting familiar to those who once journeyed through the uncharted landscapes of the historic North West Frontier. An atmosphere revived by an iconic restaurant in the Indian capital.
Here, for decades, the flames and glowing coals lighting up the interiors of its hallowed clay tandoors have recreated the campfires of kinship that lit up enchanting nights in the North West Frontier. Bukhara at New Delhi's ITC Maurya has kept alive the flame of Frontier traditions, pioneering culinary marvels that have often been imitated, but never been matched.
