With the theme 'Siz-Siz Sizzler', the handpicked menu by the chef is mounted on wooden platters. As salivating as it looks, be careful before you dig in-true to its name the food is hot and steamy!

There are 30 special sizzlers to choose from including executive chef Dorairaj's recommendation,the Seafood Mixed Grill-sea food served with potato wedges and a blend of brown and white sauces that leave a tangy taste. The non vegetarian choices include chicken, lamb, prawns and a galore of sea food varieties. Though the vegetarian choices are limited, they are equally savoury. An added bonus is the food is as healthy as it can get with a choice set of veggies like broccoli, Brussel sprouts, baby corn, mushroom and carrots, coated in white sauce. This could be a godsend for parents who want their children to eat vegetables without being fussy.

The “Red Eyes,Brown Lips” is an assorted frozen dessert of blackcurrant and strawberry ice cream topped with fruit fritters and a brownie. “This is a special Valentine’s Day dessert and the combination makes it delectable,” says the chef.
