Options by Sanjeev Kapoor now open in Movenpick Hotel Deira


The award-winning Options by Sanjeev Kapoor opened its second restaurant today (Tuesday 8 January) in the five-star Movenpick hotel in Deira. Commenting on the quality setting and prime location during the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Sayeed Hussain, CEO of Options said;

“The Mövenpick Hotel Deira is a quality five-star property, and an excellent venue for our restaurant, especially as the hotel manages 216 rooms at 90% plus occupancy levels for most of the year. Deira and neighbouring Bur Dubai also have established communities which are very knowledgeable about Indian cuisine and of course lovers of Asian cuisine in general.”

The 70-seater fine dining restaurant which is located in an excellent position close to the main hotel entrance, has an interesting décor which could easily be described as soothing bling - shimmering crystal lights, framed with a subdued yet elegant backdrop and subtle yet seductive lighting.

In complete contrast the ‘live' cooking kitchen, provides an onslaught on the senses with great animation and wonderfully pungent aromas and wait for it – featuring one of Dubai's few lady executive chefs – talk about ‘it's just like my mother used to make'.

The menu will feature Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor's handpicked and specially crafted signature dishes including Chandi Kaliya, Sham Savera, Kachhe Gost Ki Birani, Lalla Mussa Dal, Murgh Makhani, Subz Bahar and Methi Chaman. Sanjeev Kapoor is also known for his penchant for healthy food, so there will be ample choice on the menu for the health conscious.

“Through experience we know that value-for-money is of paramount importance when pricing our menus. We feel that an average meal for two people with a price tag of around AED250, is acceptable to our target audience,” said Hussain.

The first Options which opened in 2006 was voted ‘The Best Asian Restaurant, 2012' in Dubai by readers of Masala. Ever since its inception, the original Options, at the Dubai World Trade Centre, has built up a loyal following of regular customers.

“So sticking with that recipe, we are confident that our second restaurant here in Deira will emulate that success,” added Hussain.
