Man Aur Tan (which means heart and soul) provides an authentic taste of north as well as south India with a rich variety of typical Indian spices. The chef brings his love of Indian cuisine to life by creating a variety of authentic and delightful Indian dishes, such as Tandoori Jheenga. This appetizer is made of king-sized prawns marinated with spices and yoghurt, baked in a clay oven. 

Hydrabadi Gosht Dum Biryani will be a perfect choice for your main course, made of saffron rice, a delicacy of cold cuts of mutton cooked with a masterful blend of spices and dried fruits. 

There’s also Murg Makhani, which is tandoori chicken cooked in a classic tomato gravy, cashewnut, butter and cream. This food is perfect to be enjoyed with The Assorted Bread Basket consisting of garlic naan, butter naan, tandoori roti and laccha paratha. Rogan Josh Kashmiri which is a traditional Kashmiri dish cooked with fresh onion tomatoes with Indian spices is also worth a try.

The restaurant has open air sitting under the skies where guests can enjoy Mango Kulfi, made of fresh mango and flavoured reduced milk or Mango Lassi, a delicious creamy drink with fresh mango blend with home-made yogurt, sugar, and a sprinkling of cardamon. A variety of beverages and cocktails are also served by a full sky bar which creates a nostalgic environment and relaxed attitude.
