Indian cuisine returns to Windhoek

Rebekka Hidulika of Fusion Restaurant and Genet Aragaw There was great disappointment all round when the Taal Indian Restaurant in Windhoek closed earlier this year. The good news is that Harish Kumar, who managed Taal for four years before the owners decided to close the eatery, has teamed-up with Fusion Restaurant’s Rebekka Hidulika.
This business association starts with an Indian food festival on 11 and 12 November.
Dubbed the “Festival of Lights”, Hidulika and Kumar will combine their catering skills to tantalise the taste buds of those in the capital city who appreciate a good Indian meal this coming weekend.
In the form of a buffet, the event comes soon after Diwali, popularly known as the “Festival of Lights.” An important occasion in Hinduism, Diwali is celebrated for different reasons and usually occurs between mid-October and mid-November.
“Sharing of Indian cuisine is but one of the ways in which Indian people celebrate the event,” Kumar said.
Hidulika said that Fusion Restaurant is excited to be hosting an Indian food festival. She promises dinners an experience not to be missed.
Situated on Beethoven Street in Windhoek West, Fusion Restaurant is known for its fusion of traditional and western dishes into mouthwatering meals.
“Everybody who knows good food will tell you that India is renowned for its mouth-watering cuisine,” added the ever smiling Hidulika.
Hidulika and Kumar are excited about the upcoming Festival of Lights and see this as the start of what will develop into an Indian eatery returning to Namibia’s capital.
As the event is likely to be sold-out, bookings are essential. Interested people can contact Fusion Restaurant. A fee of N$179 per person and N$95 for children under 12 years gives you access to eat whatever you like and how much you would like to take in at a buffet dinner that will be served from 18:30 to 21:00.
Those in attendance will also be entertained with Indian music.
