With Father’s Day nearing as quickly as a speeding train, why not buy Dad a hearty, sumptuous meal instead of thinking of a gift to get? Or why not do both, because our Dads deserve it! SALT brings to you an array of buffet options that cover brunch, lunch and dinner. There’s a time and place for everyone to celebrate Ol’ Pops next Sunday!
THE SONG OF INDIA
Sunday brunch just got a whole lot better with a free Michelin-starred experience specially for Dad. With every group of 4 paying diners, treat Dad to a complimentary brunch buffet of North Indian delights. And not just that, if brunch is too early (1st seating at 11.30am, 2nd seating at 1.30pm), The Song of India lets you celebrate Dad with a 4-course dinner from 6pm to 11pm with the same offer.
Brunch ($46.90++) spotlights the delicacies of Kashmiri and Lucknow. Savour the taste and fluffy and light basmati rice in the Lucknowi Chicken Briyani and the like. Vegetarians fret not, we all know North Indians love their vegetables; pick the signature Kashmiri Lotus Root Korma, served in a thick, creamy curry. Dinner ($79++) boasts signatures like the Chicken Spinach Roulade featuring the well-loved cottage cheese – a common sight in North Indian dishes – and the ever-succulent Hyderabadi Lamb Shish Kebab. They are sure to leave you wanting more… if not for leaving some space for the 1-for-1 drinks promotion at Amrith, just outside the restaurant proper, in the outdoor gardens. The 1-for-1 drinks promotion extends to a variety of select bespoke cocktails, mocktails and beers. If you have a love for North Indian food, you wouldn’t want to miss out on this offer!
Father’s Day deals are only available on Sunday, 16 June 2019.
