Adda Indian Canteen

Adda Indian Canteen

Unapologetic Indian Restaurant in LIC – Adda Indian Canteen

What’s your Adda? Adda, meaning “a place where people hang out,” was created in 2018 by Unapologetic Foods led by Chef Chintan Pandya & Restaurateur Roni Mazumdar. Adda holds up to its name with its bright, casual atmosphere; collage wall of Indian newspaper covers; and rustic, “unapologetically” authentic Indian food.


We at Adda believe that food is a conversation of life and want to recreate that dialogue through our ingredient-focused menu. By evoking hints of their own nostalgia, Roni and Chef Chintan have created traditional dishes the way they’re meant to be cooked: with a variety of herbs and spices made in-house while staying true to India. Come with your spice-appreciating friends, and join us for a sensational feast!
