The Sheraton Dubai Hotel & Towers is to relocate its popular Indian specialty restaurant, Ashiana.
Al Mulla Enterprises LLC has invested $600,000 in the project, which will see Ashiana move to the lobby level from its current ground floor location shortly.
"Relocating the restaurant was the only way to increase the seating capacity to meet demand," said James Munro, general manager of the hotel.
"While the existing Ashiana, which has twice won awards for the city's best north Indian and subcontinent cuisine, seats 55, the new Ashiana will cater for up to 92 people, including a private dining room for 12 diners," he added.
Internationally renowned Hotel Design Consultants (HDC) have designed the new Ashiana, which was the first Indian restaurant assignment undertaken by the company and marks its breakthrough into the GCC market.
Ashiana, now 19 years old, will be open for both lunch and dinner.
