Little Miss India

What: Little Miss India

Where: Fairmont, The Palm

When: Sunday to Saturday, 6:30pm – 11:30pm

The Lowdown…

Fairmont The Palm’s latest restaurant is truly exceptional. The interior design resembles an opulent and characterful Colonial-styled mansion, while the open kitchen and talented chefs takes diners on a unique journey of Indian cuisine. The authentic and eccentric menu beautifully represents this storied country at its very core, with unpretentious and modest-looking dishes that taste absolutely superb. Dramatic chandeliers, chequered flooring and lush greenery drapes from the ceiling, while a choice of exotic and fragrant beverages are concocted from the unconventional bar – a heavily painted truck. MOJEHMEN’s highlight? The syrup-soaked kulfi for dessert.
