Haven’t decided where to celebrate this coming deepavali?

For this year’s Deepavali menu, award-winning Chef Kuldeep Negi have specially curated a set menu which starts with popular Indian snack, Dal Pakori from Delhi and Fafda Chaat from Gujarat, served with lentil dumplings, crispy chickpea bread complemented with tamarind and mint chutney.

Next will be the Tandoori Red Snapper which is specially procured from the Malabar coast in India, the snapper is marinated in a blend of spices before being grilled and is served along with spicy tomato chutney, plus cheese marinated tandoori broccoli to complete that umami taste.
