Speaking of the menu, Chef Amrish Sood – Executive Chef at Jehangirs says, “Jehangirs menu has a character of its own. Inspired by the grand Mughal cuisine, the dishes on the menu have been given a modern twist to resonate with current food trends. Traditional foods have been modernized to meet the discerning Indian palates who are tempted with choices galore in the area for Indian cuisine. The menu mostly comprises vegetarian food since the restaurant locality is mainly Indian communities who mostly prefer vegetarian food for their daily sustenance.”
Murali Kumar – CEO of Jehangirs Restaurant says, “We anticipated the demand for a restaurant providing fine dining experience at inexpensive prices in Mankhool. Hence, Mankhool becomes our first choice to open the second outlet of Jehangir’s in the UAE and first in Dubai. We are hoping for a huge footfall from the diners living around the vicinity looking for a fine dining experience to celebrate special occasions in an affordable range without having to travel to other parts of the city. Not to mention the huge number of home deliveries expected from the vicinity.
Kumar also believes in reaching out to guests, so a separate bespoke catering services wing is able to match such an objective. The Jahangirs Bespoke Event catering unit has already catered in some prominent localities of Dubai, serving customized menus to prominent clientele for various events – Anniversaries, office gatherings, Holiday specials and such.
Over the year, we will be focusing our expansion in Dubai within 2 years and then opening up to other regions.” Murali Kumar added.
From the very first glimpse of the interiors, followed by the attentive service and right up to the delightful creations, Jehangirs caters to the royalty within each of us.
