Ghosht Stories

As a mutton focused cloud kitchen, Ghosht Stories serves up humble, homely mutton delicacies that have us drooling. The authentic mutton dishes are served with Phulkas made of Kapli wheat, and each curry is rested for 8 hours to let the in-house chilli blend marinate, with each dish striking the right balance when it comes to heritage, tradition and taste.

What you can order:

Try the Mangalore Mutton Sukka, or the chef’s rendition of Jaipur’s famous Shekhawati Laal Maas. Don’t forget to order Phulkas with it!

How you can order:

You can place your orders via Thrive, or call them directly.
