Indian fusion dishes in a stunning luxury setting, The Ark is bridging the gap between traditional Indian cooking and contemporary glamour. If you have a special occasion coming up, you'd better read on.

The sweeping dining hall treads the line perfectly between the exoticism of India and a distinctly urban edge that makes it so unique. Beautiful round tables are dotted around a room in which Sakura trees bloom, grungy closets showcase beautiful Indian sculptures and a jazzy bar, tiled with groovy patterns and lit by modern lighting, shows off the coolest cocktails in town. At The Ark, it's as much about lifestyle as it is about spellbinding food. And with a nightclub on the premises too, it is a hive of revelry and pleasure.

The menu takes much-loved classics and gives them an Ark reboot. Nothing gets the tastebuds fired up like some garlic chicken tikka, tandoori wild prawns, kastoori panner or crispy garlic chips. Small in size but mighty in flavour, these starters are sure-fire crowdpleasers.

As for mains, take your pick of signatures like the kasundi salmon tikka made with the finest Scottish salmon. Alternatively, opt for the likes of creamy butter chicken, railway lamb curry, the boatman's fish curry from the shores of Kerela or Bombay aloo that's packed with spiced potatoes. Finally head to the bar for a little loosener. With so much fun to be had, The Ark welcomes everyone with the promise of sensational food and party potential.
