An authentic journey of discovery, blending Indian and African influences
The newly launched Curry Room at The Rubens serves an inspired three-course menu created by Chef Arun Kumar. Working closely with Head Chef Kevin Joseph at our sister property, The Oyster Box Hotel in Durban, the team delivers an experience that celebrates authentic flavours made with the finest ingredients and exclusively imported spices from India.
The intimate and supremely comfortable setting of the restaurant incorporates Rajasthani hand embroidery and rich red colours that reflect the vibrant diversity of the dishes.
Arun and his team will take you on a gourmet journey, beginning with keema samosa, poppadoms, homemade lime pickle, mango chutney and mint raita. The choice of main dishes includes traditional Indian curries, with an option to select a Thali of three. Complete the experience with a selection of desserts, including Indian-influenced Kulfi ice cream.
An extensive collection of old and new world wine has been carefully curated to complement the dining experience, with a fine selection from Bouchard Finlayson, our sister vineyard in South Africa. The menu also features popular Indian beers, including Kingfisher and Cobra.
"Our aim is to provide a unique taste experience with every dish served. We believe the secret of producing great food is to mix love, inspiration and fresh ingredients together."
