Macao (Macao SAR) – December 11, 2018 (travelindex.com) – For the sixth year in a row The Venetian Macao’s superlative Indian restaurant The Golden Peacock has again been awarded a Michelin one-star rating as “high quality cooking, worth a stop”.
The Golden Peacock is led by Kerala native and celebrated Senior Chef Justin Paul, who has headed a team of 15 chefs since the restaurant’s opening back in 2013.
“My talented team and I strive to provide an authentic yet innovative Indian culinary experience, and it is extremely rewarding to be recognised for this by Michelin once again, now for the sixth year,” he said. “But it would not be possible without the confidence that has been shown in our abilities and the freedom to take risks and follow our hearts, and for this we are grateful.”
One of the highest-rated Indian restaurants outside India itself, The Golden Peacock prides itself on authenticity throughout, from its chefs, recipes and techniques to its ingredients and kitchenware, all of which are imported directly from India.
The restaurant regularly features special promotions, most recently as part of the Green Cuisine campaign across Sands Resorts Macao’s signature restaurants. The Golden Peacock supplied two unusual dishes for the promotion, Khumb Bajre Ka Soweta, an organic millet and vegetable stew from Delhi incorporating portobello mushrooms, and Vendakka Chorakaa Mathanga, comprising produce from Karnataka including okra, bottle gourd and butter squash, cooked with coconut curry sauce.
Other seasonal menus have focused on the distinctive Indian regional cuisine of Goa, which as a former Portuguese territory like Macao, offers a delicious blend of eastern and western influences.
The Golden Peacock is open daily 11 a.m–3 p.m. for buffet lunch, with newly introduced daily live cooking station featuring regional Indian street food and full à la carte menu available from 6-11 p.m.
