As a melting pot of Middle-Eastern, Asian and Western cultures, Oman offers a rich array of cuisines from different corners of the world. And the Best Western Premier in Al Khuwair is celebrating one of the most popular cuisines in the country – Indian – with special Indian theme nights every Thursday, where the food and mood both will be 100% Indian. So if you’re a fan of desi delicacies, head to The Atrium, the Best Western’s all-day restaurant, on Thursday evenings between 6.30 pm and 10.30 pm. An expert team of chefs headed by Executive Chef Shafiq Ahmed will whip up various exotic flavours of India which range from tangy and savoury pani puri, to slow-cooked mutton rogan josh and the best ras malai – all this, at a great price of RO 8.900 net per person!
The first Indian theme night will be inaugurated by the Indian Ambassador on September 18, and subsequent theme nights will be held every Thursday. No effort has been spared by the hotel to create a complete and authentic dining experience that will transport diners from Muscat to Mumbai the moment they walk into the restaurant. The buffet menu includes salads and appetizers, two snack stations for pani puri and pav bhaji respectively, a range of vegetarian and non-vegetarian main courses, and finally, Indian sweet dishes to round things off. The buffet is priced at RO 8.900 net per person and includes unlimited water and Coca Cola. As a special offer, for every three diners opting for the buffet, a fourth gets a complimentary buffet meal which is great for groups making a booking for special occassions. For guests who need to cool off after a long day’s work, the hotel is also offering complimentary use of the swimming pool facilities.
General Manager of the Best Western Premier Muscat Dipak Paul, who has recently moved to Muscat from Alexandria and taken over the hotel’s management team, said, “Around the world, most people today are familiar with Indian food. And Muscat has a large population of locals and expatriates who love the richly varied colours and flavours of Indian cuisine. But while Indian dishes are widely available here, we were clear that the USP of our theme nights has to be the sheer authenticity of our menu. And that is why we have put together a team of Indian chefs with unmatched expertise in Indian cooking. We are confident that our Indian theme nights will tantalise the palate of all gourmet lovers of this city. Our special offers on food and the pool facilities will sweeten the deal even more!”.
While Indian nights will be held on Thursdays, The Atrium will continue to offer its international lunch and dinner menu on other days of the week.
