Indian celebrity chef Vikas Khanna is set to open his new restaurant at JA Lake View Hotel in Dubai on September 22.
The MasterChef India host’s latest venture is Kinara by Vikas Khanna and it is described as an affordable and approachable homage to regional Indian kitchens.
It will be led by Khanna’s protégé in Dubai, chef de cuisine Ashish Kumar, and presents signature dishes including dahi ke kebab (yogurt kebab) Kinara’s version of chicken makhani, and introduces guests to the four delectable chutneys that represent the regions - Bengali tomato-nigella relish, Konkani pineapple-fennel seed pickle, Punjabi pickled onions and Rajasthani garlic-chili chutney. Dishes are served in a sharing concept and the menu has extensive vegetarian choices.
The 180-seat outlet will have an open kitchen and an outdoor terrace for al fresco dining with views across the lake and golf course.
