In order to commemorate this event, Thila restaurant will offer a highly unique “Low Carbon Foot Print Menu” available during 3 evenings. The products used are all locally sourced: all seafood from local fishermen, locally grown pandan and copy leaves. Herbs are all grown in our own Kurumba Chefs’ Garden. No plates will be used to serve food on, instead, coconuts, banana leaves and local handcrafted wood. Coconuts are all grown within the island. Most courses are served raw and produced without the use of electricity and gas to minimize the environmental impact. Tuna is hand caught.
