PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BIHARI RESTAURANT OPENS AT SOUTHERN SUN NEWLANDS
The new ‘exotic chic’ Bihari, one of three in the Western Cape, opened it’s doors in April 2009
at Southern Sun Newlands offering diners and curry lovers the finest North Indian cuisine

mother city’s diverse locals. Upon entering Bihari Newlands the beautifully handcrafted and
noble Bengal Tiger, a significantly powerful and historical creature in India, welcomes guests
and transforms an ordinary experience into one of imagination.
Bihari’s offer an extensive menu of mild to fiery mouth watering fusions from Northern India as
well as regional cuisine. Food is prepared in authentic Indian style in the restaurant’s tandoor
ovens on hot open coals, providing its distinctive flavour. Meals served on heated clay plates
or in pots, are not only visually enticing but a culinary delight. Begin your feast with a selection
of delectable vegetable, chicken and tandoor starters, samoosas, a choice of no less than
seven (7) naan breads and shami kebabs. Mains include a variety of curries and Indian
Tandoor items guaranteed to tantalise the tastebuds such as Lamb Rogan Josh - simply mouth
watering for those virgin tasters, whilst Lamb Vindaloo is bound to heat things up a few
degrees. For seafood lovers, be sure to try the Prawn Korma cooked in an Indian white sauce.
Vegetarians will be equally satisfied with their meal, being spoilt for choice with a wide option
of curries and tandoor dishes to sample from.
