Sankalp: The Taste of India initially held its soft opening March 12, according to restaurant partner Prakruti Modi.

But within a week of opening, restrictions on restaurants began, and as such, the restaurant has been unable to officially fully open its dining room over the last month and a half.

“We never got a chance to officially do the grand opening,” Modi said.

So far, as a new restaurant, there is not a lot of exposure for new guests, according to Modi. The restaurant has a few weekly customers, but is still working to gain recognition through social media and other online channels.

“It's hard, definitely, and a lot of people don’t know about us yet,” Modi said.


Sankalp opened at 25% capacity May 1 and is continuing to offer pickup and to-go meals with ordering available online and over the phone.

The restaurant has taken all safety precautions for its guests and staff, she said.

All under one roof, Sankalp serves South Indian, North Indian and Indo-Chinese food options and specializes in Dosa dishes, Modi said.

Sankalp is located at 3680 Hwy. 121, Ste. 300, Plano. 214-407-7149. www.sankalpusa.com
