Martabaan by Hemant Oberoi
Emirates Palace, Corniche Road, Abu Dhabi
Relish in distinctive Indian classics at the exclusive Martabaan by Hemant Oberoi at Emirates Palace. At the helm of this contemporary Indian restaurant is chef Hemant Oberoi – high-profile super chef and the first Indian chef to join the World Gourmet Club.
Hemant has created a classic menu of delightful and innovative Indian cuisine that will tantalise all discerning palates. He says, “This menu is an ode to all my nostalgic musings and wonderful memories of the melange of sights, sounds, aromas and magic only to be found in the traditional kitchens of India.”
There are two set menus and a main menu to choose from, each displaying their own unique flavours and combinations. Think paneer lal mirch (barrels of cottage cheese marinated with yoghurt and turmeric, stuffed with tomato and mint chutney and grilled in a clay oven), Martabaan ka meat/chole (tender lamb/chickpeas slowly cooked with red chilli pickle, onion and tomato-based curry), murg malai tikka (creamy chicken tikka cooked in tandoor) and decadent chocolate shawarma.
