“We came up with the name ‘Enigma’ after the 90’s song. We wanted to keep the name classy yet catchy. After our other F&B venture downstairs which is perfect for family dining, we want this place to be the hangout spot where all age groups can come, eat, chill and relax with our tasty food, a wide variety of refreshing mocktails and hookahs. We have five elements in our body and the huge element is water, so we wanted to give the huge element to the place by painting it in blue, which is very soothing to the eyes,” said co-founders of Café Enigma, Darshhana Hora (left) and Ananya Sethi. Goldie Sethi and Chetan Hora are also co-founders but not present in the picture.
