Mint Yoghurt and Chutney
The second pillar is the Asian Kitchen which has a Tandoor oven, a yakitori grill, a wok station and a teppanyaki grill while the third is the Australian Grill with BBQ style cooking. In this relaxed style of dining, chefs are often seen interacting with guests particularly those lucky to be seated around the grill.
