INDIAN CORPORATE CHEF, PASSION F&B NEW ENTRY
At only 30, Himanshu Saini already has an enviable reputation. Tresind is the most talked about Indian restaurant in Dubai — a city with millions of Indian diaspora and plenty of his homeland's restaurants to compete with.
Having started his culinary career under the mentorship of celebrated chef Manish Mehrotra, Saini has taken a love for traditional Indian food and morphed it into something special at Tresind and Carnival by Tresind. The recently launched Tresind Studio takes it to new heights of creativity in a much more intimate setting.
At the moment the Tresind brand is restricted to just Dubai and Kuwait, but plans are afoot to expand in multiple regions around the world. Up next though is a more drink-focused concept at Palm Jumeirah which is opening soon.
Unsurprisingly, awards have been forthcoming for Saini but he tells us that while “awards are motivating, when a guest visited five times in a week to the restaurant, just because she enjoyed the experience so much, it made my year”.
