Buffet restaurant Melt Café in Mandarin Oriental usually serves up international and local dishes like Hainanese chicken rice and Vietnamese lobster spring rolls. But from now till May 28, they'll be serving up more Indian dishes apart from their usuals at their Indian Food Festival, helmed by Indian specialty chef Santosh Kumar.

Get the night rolling with starters like an authentic South Indian recipe of salmon tikka, Murg Malai Tikka (a spicy marinated chicken scented with cardamom and mace) and their saffron marinated tandoori lamb chop. There'll also be a live station cooking up dishes like the savory chicken kebab with roomali roti, spiced yellow lentil fritters and Chatti Wali Lassi (yogurt with mango). Take appetizers in small amounts because the lamb shoulder with spinach, chicken curry and stir-fried onion and tomato tiger prawns will fill your stomach. End off your meal with sweets like gulab jamun, habshi halwa (black carrot pudding) and phirni (rice cake with cardamom and saffron).

Tickets are $75 (Sunday to Thursday) and $85 (Friday and Saturday), and includes free-flow juices. An additional $20 will give you free-flow house wines, beers and soft drinks. Email mosin-dining@mohg.com or call 6885-3500 for reservations.
