Passion, poetry and the love of food run deep in the veins of Hyderabad, Lucknow and the North-West Frontier in India…regions famed for their royal kitchens and the cuisines they gave to the world as part of their heritage. And their recipes are part of Gazebo’s much guarded inheritance. And that is what they bring to this branch in Sharjah with a taste so intrinsic that it has taken on a separate identity unto itself.
The entrance to this restaurant would tell you that you are about to enjoy a rather grand experience. The large seemingly circular doors lead the way to a unique interior design that Gazebo is well-noted for. The thatched roof theme, living up to its name, is a staple at all of their restaurants including this one. Finding a seat shouldn’t be an issue as the restaurant can seat up to a 130 hungry individuals. You have the option of being enclosed in privacy, or sharing your aura with the rest of the restaurant. The number of curtains here gives it a typical palatial feel. When tied up, it adds to the homely feeling that radiates from here. The ceiling has lowered wooden panels similar to the tiled slate roofs you would find in southern India. While the one end of the restaurant is kept away far from the bustle near the entrance, the other end has a window ledge covered with plants, giving it a more open feel. This area is perfect for a quick, less intense meal.
Gazebo is known for its intensive and careful preparation of its dishes as it tries to bring out the authentic cuisine of cultures gone by in India. Dum Pukth is the way most of the food is cooked, wherein the dishes are left to simmer on a low constant flame, allowing the ingredients to cook in its own juices, giving way to a truly natural, original and pure creation on your plate. The rich natural aromas that may fill up your senses are created due to this style of cooking, preserving the purity of its ingredients.
This restaurant continues the tradition of pure cooking started in India centuries ago. A taste of the food is sure to give you a better understanding of just why Royalty in Olden India probably enjoyed their lives to the core.
