Raffles Seychelles - Curieuse Restaurant

Curieuse Restaurant

Flavours from across Asia beneath candlelit palms

When dusk falls cloak-like across the island, the sconces are lit at Curieuse Restaurant – an outdoor locale imbued with impossible romance and set beneath the garden’s gracious palms. In the flickering candlelight, inhale the scent of night-blooming flowers before casting your eyes over the menu.

Dishes reflect the very best of authentic Asian cuisine, with specialities hailing from India, China, Japan and Southeast Asia. A fragrant Thai duck curry, perhaps? Or traditional corn crab soup, followed by Mongolian chicken noodles drenched in exotic spices. Vegetarians are well catered for, and on some evenings the restaurant hosts special themed buffets.

About the Chef

Chef Birendra Sunwar may be relatively new to Raffles Seychelles, but with an impressive career history that includes tenures at Ritz-Carlton, Conrad and St. Regis, he is sure to take the dining experience at Curieuse to even greater heights. Trained especially in the art of Pan-Asian cooking, Birendra is passionate about developing new culinary skills, which he uses to create dishes defined by their elegant simplicity. His favourite dish? Peking duck, a true classic. As for the specific ingredient that is closest to his heart, he praises Sichuan peppers for their unique flavour and ability to add heat to any dish, quickly. For Birendra, the highest praise is a guest who returns time and time again to sample his cuisine.
