We’re always first in line to try every new restaurant in Abu Dhabi (well, it is our job after all), but we’re particularly excited about the opening of Martabaan by Hemant Oberoi.
The Indian restaurant is the latest addition to the line-up of brilliant dining destinations at Emirates Palace, and it promises to be really special indeed.
Described as a ‘contemporary-classic’ Indian dining destination, the restaurant has been created by world-renowned chef Hemant Oberoi, who was the first Indian chef nominated to the World Gourmet Club.
Oberoi has a wealth of experience charming diners at his restaurants in Mumbai, Delhi, Singapore and San Diego, while he has also previously catered to important figures like Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Margaret Thatcher and the Duke of Edinburgh.
The menu at Martabaan is set to feature creative dishes such as varqui crab, dum ki nalli, masala chai creme brulee and more.
With views over the Gulf and a smart and classy dining room, it’s got everything you for an elegant night out in the capital.
There’s also a bar area if you fancy a drink before or after your meal.
Officially opening on June 12, the bar will be open daily from noon until 3pm, and from 7pm until midnight.
Meanwhile the restaurant will be open for lunch from noon until 3.30pm and from 7pm until 11pm.
Open from Jun 12. Daily noon-3.30pm & 7pm-11pm. Emirates Palace, West Corniche (02 690 7999).
