Description
Nirvana brings royal flavors to The Ritz-Carlton for a dining adventure rarely enjoyed outside of India. Executive Indian Chef Mahipal Singh creates an exquisite selection of Indian recipes, a virtual firework display for the palate, including Masahari kebabs – made of minced meat, lamb or chicken, Shakahari kebabs for our vegetarian guests and Samudri Khazana, which includes a generous platter of succulent grilled seafood with local fish Hammour, shrimps and lobster. Accompanied by live music of the 'Santoor' and décor that is unsurpassed on the island.
