Silver Oak Group Mixologist Vincent Chue presented three golden jubilee celebratory beverage specials: a home-infused Gin “RUKMAMAYA,” meaning ‘made of gold’ in Hindi, “ROSE-ROYALE,” a sparkling cocktail with gold dust, and “OLDIE GOLDIE,” a smoky bourbon and Indian rum cocktail.
Continuing the celebrations, Celebrity Chef Kapoor’s Golden Anniversary Tasting Menu, including the unique delicacies of his innovative Indian gastronomy, will be offered for dining at Gaylord from Mar. 13 for a limited six-month period.
Gaylord Indian Restaurant, which literally means "Happy God" in Hindi, was established as an authentic fine-dining Indian restaurant in 1972 to cater to the demand for high-quality Indian cuisine among both expatriates and the local Indian community.
Over the decades, the restaurant has prospered and expanded to other locations. The respected Harilela family owned and operated the restaurant for 34 years, and Rajeev Bhasin, who has managed Gaylord for over 31 years, co-founded the Silver Oak Group, which presently owns and operates the restaurant.
