The five key ingredients
These are the five guiding values that distinguish every offering from every Speciality Restaurant, and impart a unique character to our guest's experience.
Authenticity : Our dishes are utterly true to their ethnic and geographical origins, while retaining their place in history and culture. Cuisines from antiquity are revisited. To preserve their authenticity, therefore, karigars and master chefs are specially brought in, and given free rein to experiment, improvise and innovate.
Ingredient Selection : A vital part of a dish's authenticity lies in its use of only the prescribed ingredients. These are sourced with a nose for their culinary correctness from scattered and obscure locations... from the by rural trails of China to the hustle and bustle of Calcutta.
Technical expertise in food preparation and flavour creation : A core knowledge area that belongs even at the highest management levels at Speciality Restaurants... which of course includes the senior chefs. Their skill-sets extend to provisioning, menu planning, decor and ambience, table service, and other essentials of restaurant management.
An obsession with detail, down to the smallest particulars of service, hygiene, kitchen routines and even the greeting of guests.
Honouring the guest is at the heart of the Speciality Restaurant experience. It's a tendency to fuss over our diners, to anticipate their needs, to be helpful without intruding, and to be alert to their wishes.
