Game of Thrones theme in new city restau­rant

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - COURT REPORTS -

A DUNDEE en­tre­pre­neur is set to open a lux­ury restau­rant with a Sis­tine Chapel-in­spired ceil­ing and orig­i­nal Game of Thrones fea­tures.

Us­man Ma­lik, a grad­u­ate of Dun­can of Jor­dan­stone Col­lege of Art and De­sign, said the in­spi­ra­tion for Dy­nasty, his new ven­ture, came from the re­nais­sance and neo-clas­si­cal pe­riod as well as his favourite TV show.

With the re­fur­bish­ment well un­der way, he hopes the restau­rant on Perth Road, in the former Dundee Univer­sity English depart­ment, will open in the sum­mer.

There will be a smart dress code for evening meals, which would fea­ture food from all over the world.

In ad­di­tion, lunch and high tea would be of­fered, as well as drinks in an out­door bar where the Game of Thrones props will be dis­played.

Mr Ma­lik, who also owns Oshi­bori Ja­panese restau­rant, said: “I wanted to cre­ate some­thing very ex­clu­sive in Dundee, some­thing sim­i­lar to the Ritz.

“Dy­nasty will have a restau­rant, a tea room for high tea, a bar and it will also be an events venue.”

He con­tin­ued: “Re­flect­ing the na­ture of the grand in­te­rior of Dy­nasty, there will be a dress code for din­ing where gen­tle­men would have to wear smart at­tire — jacket and tie — and, for high tea, smart ca­sual — but no jeans or train­ers and sports cloth­ing will be al­lowed.

“For the out­door bar, there is no spe­cific dress code.

“I think this will be a suc­cess in Dundee. When I opened Oshi­bori in 2014, peo­ple said there wouldn’t be much de­mand for sushi in the city, but it has been very pop­u­lar.”

Mr Us­man said he did not orig­i­nally in­tend to have Game of Thrones fea­tures and that he stum­bled upon the props by ac­ci­dent.

He said: “I was in North­ern Ire­land, shop­ping for fur­ni­ture for the restau­rant and they told me they had some of the orig­i­nal fea­tures from Game of Thrones — clocks, a gazebo, a foun­tain and oth­ers. I love the show so I de­cided to buy them.”
