Unchanged Menu Since 1988 Still Most Popular!
As in 2006, this year again only one restaurant from India has made it to the Restaurant magazine’s prestigious top 50. Bukhara, one of India’s most famous restaurants has repeated and recreated history of sorts. Not only has Bukhara been voted the Best Indian Restaurant in the World, it has also been declared the Best Restaurant in Asia!
The World's 50 Best Restaurants Awards was announced recently at the Science Museum, London SW7 :
Each year, RESTAURANT magazine of UK , an authority on global cuisine, nominates the 50 finest restaurants in the world. The chosen ones are limited in number and represent the culinary excellence in taste, service and style.
The list is compiled by The Nespresso World's 50 Best Academy, a group of prominent food writers, critics, publishers and commentators, who each represent a different global region and chair a carefully selected voting panel for that region. First published by Restaurant magazine in 2002 and now in its sixth year, The S.Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants is recognized around the world as the most credible indicator of the best places to eat on Earth. Expectedly, just the very refined restaurants created across the world, become part of this much sought after list of history.
In a day and time where restaurants are experimenting and innovating cuisine, Bukhara’s menu has not been changed or added to in the 26 years since it opened. Clearly, it’s the impeccable consistency in quality and taste over these years that is Bukhara’s most important ingredient.
Credited with immense popularity, the rugged tandoori cuisine of the northwest frontier province, Bukhara has been a trendsetter in more ways than one. This specialty restaurant is a Must Visit in author Patricia Schultz’s “1,000 Places To See Before You Die”.
Bukhara has played host to innumerable Heads of State and world dignitaries including Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Bryan Adams, Greg Chappel,Cherie & Tony Blair, Mick Jagger…So much that a visit to the capital is not considered complete, without a meal at Bukhara.
