LEGENDS RISE FROM THE ROYAL FARE, ROMANCE AND LOVE FILL THE AIR, THEIR KITCHENS LEAD THE WAY TO HEARTS, TO CONQUER THE WORLD WITH CULINARY ARTS
Ummrao, the Urdu translation of “The Nobel” or “The Loved one”, re-opens its doors on 1st October, 2021.
Sitting beautifully poised at the heart of Courtyard Marriott, Ummrao reflects the grandeur of the Nawabs in its colour schemes, textures and art work. Inspired by the dynasty’s love for art and architecture, the interiors create a setting of luxury which patrons of art and style are sure to appreciate.
Featuring a vibrant and eclectic menu that draws inspiration from the royal kitchens of the country, Ummrao offers some of the finest dishes in town seeped in ‘Rivayat’ (tradition). Each and every aspect is ‘Nayaab’ (rare) and has been designed to perfection, be it the unique Awadhi flavours or traditional cooking styles that lend dishes a unique and tantalising aroma.
Ummrao maintains a unique gastronomic legacy which has been ensured by Master Chef Mukhtar Qureshi. His menus, named after begums gone by, feature some sumptuous and delectable dishes, including starters like Nadru ki Shammi and Malihabad Kakori, delectable curries like the Ummrao Avataar-E- Halim and Korma Murgh Wajid Ali, breads like Tafftan, Bakhumas and more. Delectable desserts like Purdakh Khubhani Tart signal the perfect end to a culinary ‘Jashn’ (celebration).
This feast for the gustatory senses is further complemented by the unique range of cellared beverages. Thoughtfully selected, the wine selection thematically matches the menu, giving every diner an unparalleled dining experience.
The cocktails are an ode to the famous bartenders across the globe. Cocktails that you know but with an Ummrao twist. To name a few, “Bill Boothby” which features 100% Natural Jaintia hills Meghalaya sourced Lakadong Turmeric, home-made kaffir leaf syrup and gin; “Ada Coleman”, a julep of Malabar Kudampuli tamarind extract with jaggery, fresh mint and whiskey and “Constante Ribalaigua Vert”, a rye whisky drink with Indian spiced mulled wine, egg white, tulsi honey.
Says Shreyas Aranoly, Director of Food and Beverage, “Ummrao is Ruhaniyat, a soulful experience! Our recipes are a thoughtful mix of spices and roots with multiple Ayurvedic values. We not only satiate hunger, we complete the meaning of being content”.
Our exquisite ambience, welcoming and warm hospitality and our dedication to offer our patrons nothing but the best makes every meal an unforgettable experience”
