The four-star hotel on Five Ways island, Park Regis, has officially opened their new Indian restaurant Indus this May. The bar and terrace at the hotel will remain but the restaurant has been transformed into an oasis of upmarket dining to replace the 1565 restaurant.
Park Regis’ new restaurant Indus has been inspired by a love of India. A little known fact is that the name ‘India’ originated from the name of the Indus River that ran through the Asian sub continent. The Indus chefs have taken inspiration from their native homeland and been inspired to elevate their favourite dishes.
Lovingly put together with freshly ground spices, great produce and authentic cooking techniques, the chefs have evolved and adapted the best of Indian cuisine and made it pretty special. Indus offers a menu flowing with traditional dishes that explores pan-Asian flavours synonymous with this majestic sub-continent.
The menu aims to take you on a culinary journey across northern India, exploring the richness of tastes, contrasts and textures of the region with centuries of tradition. Head Chef Manish Patel brings his experience of working in five star hotels in India to create a menu offering a mouth-watering choice of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes on its extensive menu. Some of the chef’s signature dishes include Indus Haddi Wala Ghost (mutton on the bone slowly cooked in a rich almond, onion and aromatic spices) and a delicately flavoured Goan Machhi (spicy goan fish curry simmered in coconut milk and toddy vinegar).
Guests can also enjoy the likes of north Indian street food such as samosa chaat alongside tandoori dishes like Nawabi paneer tikka and sharing platters (including a vegetarian option) perfect for two and allow you to get a taste of some of the restaurant’s top dishes. Indus also brings luxury in the form of their desserts with crispy samosa stuffed with rich chocolate and dry fruits; homemade pistachio ice cream served with pecan nuts, praline brittle and caramel sauce; as well as an Indian classic of Gulab Jamun (deep fried dough balls coated with rose flavour sugar syrup
served with vanilla ice cream).
As for the drinks menu at Indus, you can sip on signature cocktails such as Indus Iced Tea, Desi Masala Manhattan and Spicy Patiala Sour, as well as choose from a range of mojito flavours from maraschino cherry to fancy ones topped up with champagne. And for those after cool but creamy drink, the Park Regis restaurant offers mango, sweet or masala lassis.
