About the Restaurant

Varq is a harmonious blend of traditional and contemporary sophistication. Visually spectacular in every way, this elegant Indian restaurant is located at the lower lobby level overlooking the hotel's beautifully manicured gardens. Varq seamlessly married the traditional Indian themes with a simple palette of bespoke furnishings.

Grand Master Chef Hemant Oberoi has taken Indian food to a different dimension with new techniques, innovative presentations and usage of organic produce and spices. He has reinvented Indian food with unusual creations and pairings thus creating an exclusive gourmet dining experience. The menu is a rich accumulation of Indian recipes evolved to the next level of modernity and served in pre plated portions.

Varq also offers a private dining room for 14 guests. Within the private dining room, two evocative and contemporary figurines, one male and one female, will be sure to charm and humour their audience. In complete contrast, other artworks within the private dining room include two large gold and silver shields that have been intricately carved in a traditional style and a series of four captivating modern figurative oils on canvas that depict a goddess. Here, cuisine and art fully merge for a truly unforgettable dining experience.

Each dish is a craft in itself with different flavours permeating to its core. Varq retains the Indian traditional way of cooking while using exotic ingredients like Sea bass, sand crab, black cod and  morels.
