CLIFFSIDE PARK, N.J. — A group of six friends have paired their passion for food with cricket at a new restaurant in Cliffside Park.

Tushar Patil and his wife Pooja Sonowane — along with friends Sanket and Priti Biniwale of Lyndhurst and Urvee and Kushal Biniwale from Nutley — opened Silli Point Indian Fusion on Anderson Avenue.

The walls of the restaurant on decked out in cricket decor because that's where the six friends met, Patil said — in a local cricket league.

"We're like brothers from different mothers," he told Daily Voice.

"We've known each other for the last five years and we made the restaurant cricket-themed so people can get embedded in the memories."

Doing so gives diners the "full experience," he explained.

Silli Point features deep fried cauliflower, chicken lollipops, cottage cheese croquettes and several restaurant exclusives: Old Monk Chicken, for example.

"You can't find it anywhere else," said Patil of the dish, made with Indian rum. "Sanket once upon a time tried mixing chicken and rum. It turned out amazing."

Silli Point is located at 498 Anderson Ave., Cliffside Park.
