Celsius restaurant at Nassima Royal Hotel turned so sparkling and vivacious , the brilliant colors, aroma of grills in atmosphere and rangoli display at this festive occasion of Diwali …. the combined affect of all these elements made it a memorable evening for us. We were invited for a blogger’s meetup. With my previous experience at one of the restaurants in Nassima Royal, I was much excited to try Celsius this time.
More over the Indian themed buffet is always a favorite as Pakistan & India share the same traditional cooking styles.
Celsius has a decent contemporary interior setting with the most informative staff and chefs. They have started their Indian themed buffet named Hot n’ Spicy Night. Where not only they have introduced typical flavors from India but at the same time some very special recipes are prepared by chefs with a fusion touch, where they have combined Indian spices in various dishes like terrine, shooters, pizza etc
Should I start telling what I started with?
CHAAT CORNER …… so popular demanding Indian street food
at the chaat corner serves the mouth watering ‘Gol Gappe’ .
They also have Dal Vada, Pakoray & Aloo Bonda.
SALADS ….. amazing combination of flavors and spices was seen here some of these were …. Spiced Vegetable Terrine, Spicy Banana Flower Salad, Beef & Broccoli Salad, Poached Salmon Salad, Spicy Butter Milk Shooter, Pumpkin Mousse with Roasted Cumin, Seafood salad, Tandoori Chicken Terrine.
