When hungry patrons at IMG Worlds of Adventure want to take a break from the excitement of the attractions or get off their feet for a while, they have a plethora of options. One delicious choice is Samosa House, a casual Indian street food restaurant located on IMG Boulevard, which is in the park’s welcome zone.
Falcon’s Creative Group was responsible for designing Samosa House, one of 29 food and beverage locations inside the massive indoor theme park, which Falcon’s master planned. The creative design studio also assumed the roles of project manager, creative guardian, and onsite art director, which for Samosa House, meant being true to Indian culture and other South Asian traditions.
The restaurant brings to life the ancient art of samosa and chai. A samosa is a fried or baked pastry with a savory filling. Chai is the Hindi word for tea. There is no shortage of options for either treat at this unique sit-down restaurant that accommodates more than 150 diners.
Seating options are almost as ample as the menu selections. Naturally, there are booths and tables in the main space, but if you want to really immerse yourself in the environment, you can choose to sit inside a thematically painted and adorned Karachi-style bus or a real (but non-operating) Tuk-tuk cart, which is a three-wheeled motor vehicle. Some diners can enjoy people-watching from their table of choice just outside the restaurant.
Each of the four zones at IMG Worlds of Adventure has its own color scheme, and IMG Boulevard might boast the brightest of them all. That opened up a treasure trove for artists at Falcon’s, who got to play with a seemingly endless and vibrant palette in a variety of ways, especially when designing Samosa House. The interior of the restaurant features a beautiful combination of fabrics, millwork, metal and glass festoon lanterns, graphics, artwork, and sconces. Even the tea pots are highly stylized.
Samosa House is an authentic themed dining experience that the entire family can enjoy.
