Star Chef Vineet Bhatia is renowned world-wide for his cuisine. In Dubai he’s became known as one of the pioneers of Indian cuisine in the UAE. In addition to his many restaurants around the world, he also consults on the menu for First and Business Class passengers of Qatar Airways. Bhatia has now joined forces with Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel & Towers at the now re-opened Ashiana by Vineet.
“The wonderful thing about growing up in Bombay was the eclectic influence all around you. It is a melting pot of culinary delights from all over the many different regions of India,” Bhatia said. “I’m delighted to be able to weave a truly flavourful story into the Ashiana menu, combining tastes of the north, south, west and east of India and providing diners with a truly unique culinary experience.“
As the only Indian Chef to have two Michelin starred restaurants,Vineet Bhatia has led highly acclaimed restaurants all over the world, earning him titles such as “Chef of the Year 2004” and “100 Most Powerful Indians in Gulf- Arabian Business 2012”.
Bhatia was the first Indian Chef Restaurateur to be awarded the much-coveted Michelin-star in 2001 at Zaika in London, and is the only Indian Chef to have two of his restaurants retain this prestigious award. His London-based restaurant Rasoi – where he was awarded a Michelin star for the second time in 2006 – serves up evolved Indian food with a balance and sophisticated use of spices that has become his signature on the plate. Making history again, Bhatia became the first Indian chef to hold two Michelin stars when Rasoi by Vineet in Geneva was awarded the star in 2009.
