Eat out of the pan, off the grill and out of the wok
The Tamra experience is rooted in a fine selection of world cuisine, warm service, music; good quality wine, signature cocktails in a contemporary and stylish setting …. 

AMBIENCE: Located on Level one of the Hotel, Tamra exudes class from the moment you walk in until the time you leave. The stunning panoramic view from a large glass frontage minimally accentuated with live food theatres (read five with a backdrop of hanging shelves) along with a pastoral yet stylish long wooden bar next to the entrance with 32 hand blown glass jar chandeliers contributes to an atmosphere of elegance. An exclusive 10 seater private dining area adds to its elegant ambience screened off by decorative floor to ceiling jute rope partitions replete with a backdrop of a decorative floating timber wall and copper pipe pendant lights. The tastefully designed cocktail bar is trendy and the bar menu enticing and indulgent offering tailored and exciting cocktails in groovy glassware. Identical with leisurely sojourns, this is where early morning meetings turn into afternoon lunches and evening coffee gives way to sundown sessions, effortlessly. After dusk, the restaurant sees a remarkable, effortless make over - chic, tranquil and urbane yet vivacious and buzzing. 
Copper hanging pots are displayed over the two infinity tables where mirrored walls provide an exaggerated view.

WHAT’S ON OFFER: The Menu celebrates flavours and styles from around the world interpreted in an original and innovative way but never forgetting that good produce is at the heart of the best food and touches on Asian, Regional Indian, Japanese including Teppanyaki, homemade gelatos and a Dessert Bar, Cold Cuts, Cheese, Breads and a Salad Bar. I would suggest you to set your palate free to engage in an exploration of the senses. The show kitchens take the place of the hot chafing dishes found on the usual buffet line,in order to give maximum freshness and guest interaction. An equally intriguing a la carte menu is also available and the one to return for: everything from the ‘Sushi’, ‘Dumplings’, ‘Barley, smoked chicken & sundried tomato salad’ to the ‘Fish Ambi Tikka’ and ‘Grilled Chicken, mustard onion layonnaise’ has its place. Cooking styles range from grilled and poached to braised and slow roasted, to extract the goodness and flavours of the ingredients. To end on a sweet note my vote goes all out for the stunning ‘Tamra Chocolate’ a perfect ending to my meal. I guess I surely will go back to do full justice to the parts of the menu I couldn’t try, next time round.
