Be it a ribeye, sirloin or a brisket, rather than just soaking the steak in flavourings the chefs have perfected the art of bringing out the essence of the meat, usually with a marinade of pepper and a pinch of salt. Simplicity is observed in the preparation of the seafood and vegetarian grills. Each grilled dish is cooked in the special charcoal fired grill oven, which while enhancing natural flavours infuses the meal with smoky and char tangs.
