épicer, pronounced 'eh-peess-eh', is an expression of modern Indian cuisine by Michelin-starred chef, Manjunath Mural

Literally translated as "to bring spice to", épicer invites guests to reimagine and redefine how they perceive Indian food (and cocktails). Shed your preconceptions to explore a menu that showcases the heartbeat of our motherland: diverse, colourful and joyful.


Whether you want to enjoy a few small sharing plates over cocktails in our loft lounge or voyage through a degustation experience with matching wines in our main restaurant, there is something for everyone.

Our kitchen only uses ethically-sourced proteins.

With a focus on presentation and a commitment to sustainability, we want to look good, and be good, too.


Our mixologists bring spice to the classics while our knowledgeable sommelier is on hand to recommend wine pairings for each dish.

Our innovative cocktail list invites exploration: start with a tamarind and date margarita, move to an Indian gooseberry laced Desi Aura, and if you're looking for a digestif, try our moonshine Desi Daru liquor - neat.

Please note, we only offer wheat straws, kind guest.


Chef Manjunath Mural is the first Indian executive chef to score a Michelin star for 3 consecutive years (2016, 2017 and 2018).

"Indian cuisine has a depth of history, tradition, ingredients and techniques, yet it is still considered ‘niche' and often kept to the ‘family-restaurant’ in many parts of the world. I have often asked myself why. My dream is to share my style in presenting Indian cuisine in a way which is relevant, exciting and memorable."
