About Kanishka

Kanishka focusses on the unexplored cuisine from seven sisters of India - the North East which are - Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura. It has a food culture that is as vibrant as its heritage and as beautiful as its people. From lanes packed with humble carts serving specialty dishes, to rows of eateries that overflow onto roads, the streets of Northeast India are a gastronomic kaleidoscope.
