Food
Kitty Party at Ambassador
Ambassador presents kitty parties at the hotel with food and drinks. Assistant Food and Beverage Manager, Bikash Saha says, “Kitty parties are a good way to meet likeminded people at set intervals. These parties can be given a twist to make them different and more enjoyable.” Chef Arjun agrees, adding, “This is the time for women to relax, meet with friends and enjoy their meals differently. Kitty party menus are short and sweet and consist of soup, starters and main course, which are very interesting and keep the gossip going for hours.” The menu is à la carte and ladies also get a discount of 25% on a group bill.
When Ongoing from 12.30pm – 3.30pm

Winter Special
Golden Chariot has added new dishes to their winter menu, based on ancient Indian rules of food preparation. Chef Sahu says, “As Indians, we are fortunate to have dietary instructions written in our ancient texts. In today's busy life we've forgotten that simple modifications to our diet will add tremendous value. We’ve ensured that seasonal food ingredients are on the menu. There are warming foods to counter the winter chill. These foods have nutrients that the body requires and we've given each dish a twist to the taste to make it modern and exciting.” So head down to Golden Chariot to get your taste of shorbas, slow roasted chicken and other delectable winter treats.
When Ongoing, from 11.45am – 03.30pm for lunch and 6.30pm to 12.30am for dinner

Lip smacking Steak and FlambÉ
The Society brings you delectable steaks as part of their new à la carte menu. Assistant Food and Beverage Manager, Bikash Saha tells us, “Meat often gets a bad rep — the threats of obesity, high cholesterol, and even colon cancer are enough to make anyone decline that next barbecue invitation. But now you can have your steak without worry. Some beef fat is monounsaturated, which is the kind of fat that is good for you and actually helps lower LDL, or bad cholesterol, like the kind found in olive oil and avocado, which is what made us think about Steak & Flambé promotion by creating a special menu.”

Movie 
Faster
Starring Dwayne Johnson, Billy Bob Thornton, Carla Gugino, Maggie Grace and Oliver Jackson-Cohen Directed by George Tillman Jr.Prison either breaks a man down or makes him stronger. For Driver (Dwayne Johnson), a 10-year sentence proved the latter. His strength was not just fueled by time, but also by a hunger to avenge the murder of his brother during a bank robbery that led to his own imprisonment. He made plenty of enemies in prison — men who were counting the days to his release so they could exact their own revenge on the outside. On the day of his release, he is hell-bent on reaping vengeance upon the four men responsible for his brother's murder. With a list of names and addresses in hand, he sprints out of the prison gates and gets on his mission.
