Saffron – Authentic fine-dining Thai cuisine
Banyan Tree’s award-winning signature restaurant stays true to classic techniques used in the Kingdom of Thailand. Saffron offers guests a fine-dining experience with cooking methods passed down from generations, alongside the use of indigenous ingredients. The restaurant’s innovative menu features authentic and refined flavours from Thai royal palaces, regional specialties and all-time favourites – served with a contemporary and artistic twist.
IL Galante – An authentic Italian kitchen
Vincenzo Corrado was a maestro of cookery, a great gastronome and one of history’s greatest chefs, who distinguished himself between the 18th and 19th centuries in the noble courts of Naples. His preparation of magnificent banquets and luxurious dinners earned him the nickname the gallant cook or ‘Il Cuoco Galante,’ which later became the title of his cookbook. He was the first cook to write about Mediterranean cuisine, and the first to extol the virtues of great regional Italian food.
Inspired by the authenticity of the Il Cuoco Galante cookbook, the restaurant features traditional Italian cuisine using the finest ingredients in an elegant setting.
Qalamkarri – The art of contemporary Indian cuisine
Kalamkari is a type of hand-painted or block-printed cotton textile, produced in southern India. Centuries ago, this form of painting was used as a form of storytelling by folk singers and painters travelling between villages.
Qalamkarri is inspired by Kalamkari art and the word ‘Qalam’, which means pen – combined to symbolise the crafting and artistic presentation of historic and modern India. The restaurant brings together the latest cooking techniques with India’s multi-faceted cuisine, offering a familiar yet innovative interpretation of one of the world’s great culinary experiences.
Panya Lounge – A patisserie with Asian flair
“Panya” is the Thai word for wisdom. It is a celebration of fresh flavours, balancing hot and cold, as well as sweet and salty. It takes strong influence from the culinary delights of East Asia infused with Western patisserie techniques.
From exotic Thai flavours, authentic taste of Italy to destination dining at Banyan Tree Doha At La Cigale Mushaireb, guests are invited to embark on a unique gastronomic experience.
In addition to the restaurants, the hotel will be introducing Vertigo later in the year, a panoramic rooftop lounge overlooking the entire city. Its mesmerising views will offer an experience like no other with a creative beverages menu, mixology inventions and a Mediterranean take on Pan-Asian cuisine – all in a lively setting with upbeat music.
