 String of Pearls for Christmas – tasting menu

Send your taste buds on an Indian Ocean cruise for Christmas

The String of Pearls menus were inspired by the Indian-influenced cooking from around the Indian Ocean with menus from East Africa, the Indian Ocean Islands and the Strait of Malacca (Malaysia, southern Thailand and Indonesia).

 Our String of Pearls tasting menu can be had as either three, four or five courses, with or without matching wines.
