Aarya is the restaurant run by South Africa’s first MasterChef SA winner, Deena Naidoo. The restaurant is located in the heart of Montecasino’s vibrant Outdoor Piazza.

Deena decided to name the restaurant in honour of his 10-year old daughter – the apple of his eye – who in turn was given the name for its Sanskrit meaning, which is noble, kind, honourable, dear, and favourable, and is considered to be a respectful way of addressing women.

The restaurant menu reflects the South African nation and what the MasterChef competition was all about.

Deena has an extensive knowledge of spices, which will clearly be seen and tasted in the dishes on the menu. “I want to break my personal stereotype that I associate with the Indian food experience. Throughout MasterChef, I proved that I’m not the curry king and that my food reflects the South African palate, in all its diversity and multicultural influences. The new world is defined by spice, and the dishes on my menu are strongly spice and flavour-orientated. All Aarya’s dishes are close to my heart and to my philosophy of highlighting core flavours and using ingredients in moderation.”
