By Mark's Ooh La La Yum

About Swad

My inspiration for great home cooking comes from my mother, Sushila Rani. My father, Lala Som Dutt ji, had a refined palate and placed those high expectations upon my mother’s home cooking.

My mother’s own passion about a slow simmer, authentic homestyle preparation and cooking followed me throughout my life. Her techniques, dedication and love for what she created and plated are what I always kept close to my heart from childhood to this very day.

My mother’s inspiration never left my head or heart even after spending 30 years in the clothing business. Ultimately that inspiration and drive, solely from her, encouraged me to open my own restaurant, Mark’s Ooh La La Yum, in Norwood, NJ, 8 years ago.

After 8 years of continually practicing, I, myself, feel as if I have arrived at point where I have perfected creating savory, delicious Indian home cooked meals for my guests. I take great pride in delivering meals that not only suit the taste buds of those who delight in them, but also please each and every guests who graces me with their presence.

“The Swad” means ooh la la yum in Indian. Please visit us in Tappan, NY so I can share with you what Indian home cooking, inspired by love, dedication and passion, truly taste like.
