Hi­man­shu Saini

IN­DIAN COR­PO­RATE CHEF, PAS­SION F&B NEW EN­TRY

Caterer Middle East - - Special Report -

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”.
