Loya Restaurant's ideology is the idea of five (Paanch). The beautiful place concept is drawn from the five rivers that nourish life in the land of Punjab and the five elements which make the universe bloom.
The wall of Loya Taj has five distinct patterns featuring the walls that bring out the Rajasthani jharokhas, Mughals ornamentation, and stone jails with earth-like sandstone texture.

The seating space is inspired by old traditions and the whole vibe is inspired by rope khatiyas which were founded in rural parts of north India & rustic cutlery in Kansa. Clay adding a lot more royal and overall rural traditional vibes.
The ceilings have a striped tapestry line which gives the ceilings evoking a feeling of old bazaars. The large handcrafted vases and pots enlighten the background with a chic vibe adding a little modern texture to a dramatic dining space.
