Aarya Restaurant Adds New #Taste #AaryaNewMenu @TsogoSun @MontecasinoZA

Hi Guys, 

Bold flavours feature on Aarya’s newly-refreshed menu, reflecting the restaurant’s focus on offering tastes to suit all palates. The highly popular restaurant has become a firm favourite with many of Montecasino’s visitors – and the time was right to introduce a range of new items to intrigue and delight both regular and new customers.

Deena Naidoo, Aarya’s restaurateur since he won a partnership deal with Tsogo Sun to run the restaurant in MasterChef South Africa in 2012, is a proudly South African chef and Aarya’s menu reflects this, drawing from diverse South African cuisines, while also capitalising on Deena’s extensive knowledge of spices. Says Deena, “We’ve created a range of new dishes across the menu to add new taste experiences, while retaining our focus on our wonderful South African fare.”
Additions to the starters menu include Salt and pepper calamari tubes, and Spicy seafood hot pot. A new salad is Oak-smoked salmon trout salad, and a Lamb pizza is new to the pizza selection.

Delicious new options on the main course menu include Spaghetti or penne with basil pesto (oil, garlic, nuts and parmesan) and chicken or prawns; Homemade burger with roasted onions, pickle, salad, and melted mozzarella; King prawns; Biltong spice crusted 250g beef fillet; Red wine and rosemary braised lamb shank; and Deena’s best – a trio of curry.

“The Aarya team took great pleasure in developing new dishes for our menu that would have great appeal for both South African and international customers and would showcase the multi-cultural South African nation,” adds Deena. Aarya has become a popular venue for special celebratory or corporate occasions.
He says, “Aarya has been a wonderful success story – even better than we could have imagined – and it fits in perfectly with Montecasino’s aim to ensure that every experience at the precinct is a memorable one. Our new menu offerings will add new zest to the restaurant – and to Montecasino as a whole, and we look forward to welcoming guests to try out our new items.”
