With contemporary and minimalist design aesthetics that pay tribute to both Burma's old-world charm and its fascinating textile heritage, the all-new 120-seater restaurant and tea-room is spread across 4000 sq. ft., making it a wonderful addition to Hyderabad’s growing international cuisine offering.
This is one of the first Burma Burma restaurants which is a design-forward space. Immediately noticeable are the unique aspects of its origin country woven into its interior design. Like the large wire-work pagoda installations placed throughout the restaurant which also act as a light source. The standout feature in the restaurant are the colourful booth-backs created by the basket weaves unique to Burma that act as seating backdrops. While creating a sense of privacy, these booths also add a burst of colour to the largely earthy-neutral colour theme of the restaurant. With Burma Burma’s newest restaurant in Hyderabad, Minnie Bhatt, Design Director, Minnie Bhatt Designs, infuses the interiors with authentic design elements that offer an immersive experience to diners. Though she has kept to the same aesthetic language that’s seen across the brand’s restaurants across the country, the Hyderabad outpost stands apart from the rest. A large printed canvas wall panel spread over 30 ft, depicting the skyline of Bagan, Burma’s ancient city, is an eye-catching backdrop that anchors the space. Smaller design surprises are scattered through the restaurant inviting customers on a design treasure hunt.
