BALAJI BALACHANDER

The Leader

Blue Planet Foods Pvt. Ltd. was started by the initiative of Chef Gowtham Balasubramanian, Chef Balaji Balachander, and hotelier Michael Anthony. We started our journey from Chennai in 2013 and now we have grown our presence to four restaurants across two cities i.e Chennai and Bangalore. Location was the key in making our decisions and they definitely paid off. Each location is a landmark destination in itself, thereby providing the much-needed impetus in terms of customer visibility.

Salt is based on a very simple mantra; “Most delicious Indian recipes that reflect the real taste and soul of Indian Food which is served in a cheerful restaurant where food lovers can relax and eat with their fingers if they wish.” At SALT we experiment with the finest Indian spices and ingredients along with diverse cooking techniques to recreate traditional recipes, providing each diner with an aromatic. visual and flavorful dining experience.

Our menu spans the breadth and depth of India, delivering the most delicious recipes that reflect the real taste and soul of Indian food. Our signature dishes like Subzi Quinoa Tikki, Mutton Sukha Goli from our sharing plates and combos to the grills.

Our curries are light and flavourful dishes like Ras-Bhari Kofta Curry, Alleppey Fish Curry, SALT Special Dal Makhani, and Mutton Chops Curry.

Our desserts are unique and innovative; rather than having the regular milk-based Indian desserts, we have created memorable desserts like Filter Coffee Brulee, Saffroni Kulfi, and Ras Malai.

We believe it’s not one man responsible for the success of the restaurant, it’s the whole team. We are a people company and the three most important core values we follow at SALT are Our People, Our Product, and Our Guest.
