RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - While there are plenty of high-end steak houses and even Italian and French-inspired eateries in Rio de Janeiro, the city has been lacking an authentic Indian restaurant, until the Taj Mahal opened in Lagoa last January.
The venture was launched by Riju Konwar, who was born in India but brought up in the U.S., and Ângela Konwar, from Portugal and Brazil. The kitchen is lead by executive chef, Neeraj Singh, who was born in the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand in a small town of Tehri Garhwa.
