Another major festival, Diwali which is adding to the festivities. The premiere Indian restaurant in Beverly Hills, Spice Affair is celebrating the auspicious occasion in a very unique style. To mark the festival of lights, Spice Affair has curated an exquisite culinary experience featuring some of the most extravagant and authentic dishes along with live music and entertainment from October 27th to October 30th, 2016.

Ever since it opened in the heart of famous “Restaurant Row” of Beverly Hills, California, Spice Affair has come to be recognized for its bold fusion flavors, exceptional presentation and a distinctive menu with lavish taste. The restaurant has become the meeting point for many Hollywood, Bollywood and international celebrities and glitterati.

The importance of India’s main festival has been recognized by the first lady Michelle Obama, who hosts Diwali at the White House every year by lighting the traditional Diya (Indian candle) to signify the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil. The U.S. Postal Service also commemorated the joyous Hindu festival of Diwali by dedicating the Diwali Forever stamp.

People around the world traditionally go shopping, decorate rangolis (colorful powder) with the vibrant and traditional pattern, light diyas, play games, dress their best, enjoy feasts and sweets, exchange gifts, light fireworks and pray to God for wealth and prosperity. It is the time to come together with close friends and family along with ceremonies that include some great delights and dancing.

“We grew up celebrating Diwali with close friends and family,” said Puneet Chandak and his wife Sonia Batra – owners of Spice Affair. “It is a festival that brings everyone together across religions and faiths to exchange gifts and sweets. It is the most auspicious day of the year, and we would love to open our place for everyone during this special occasion to become a part of our family and celebrate what it stands for”.

Spice Affair has been gained substantial repute amongst celebrities and food critics:

“Best food I’ve had in America” – Shabana Azmi and Javed Akhtar (renowned Indian Artists)

“Hands down, the best Indian food I’ve had in town. Each dish they served was better than the last. I have never left a restaurant so full but still wanting more.” – Lane Garrison (Actor, Prison Break)

“Both the owners are warm and friendly. Love exudes from the moment you walk-in. The food is unmatched by any other place in the LA area.” – Manish Dayal (Actor, Hundred-Foot Journey)

Just like the food, there will be an infusion of a little spice into the entertainment this Diwali by fusing the classical instruments of India with Middle Eastern dance and adding a fresh touch to music and dance”.
