The evening soiree was graced by Ambassador’s from the South-Eastern nations such as Oman, Kazakhstan, Bahrain, Trinidad, Singapore, Slovak, Rwanda, Brunei, Paraguay and Senegal.

Alongside, the Chefs have sourced traditional cookware from each of the four States to ensure that the dishes on the new menu have genuine taste of the household it represents. Each dish on the menu is being developed using traditional cooking techniques starting with the grinding of the spices, which is done on traditional grinding stones or Silbattas to using home-style cookware for each dish, offering true home-style flavour to its guests.
