About 200 invited guests who attended Hotel Istana’s “GM’s Cocktail – Mongolian Theme” on Dec 19 were treated to a sumptuous feast of succulent chicken and lamb kebabs as well as a delightful mix of aromatic oriental stir-fry dishes.
The invited guests who included captains of industries as well as members of foreign missions, enjoyed the food at the hotel’s spacious poolside arena, complete with a wide selection of soft drinks and wines.
Red lanterns strategically placed at the poolside was an added touch to the celebratory mood that evening.
There was even a life-size statue of a Mongolian warrior standing at attention, welcoming guests to the poolside area.
Hotel Istana general manager Praba Menon played host along with a Mongolian prince and princess.
Menon said the hotel management decided to host this special cocktail cum dinner session to honour corporate clients who had strongly supported the hotel in 2007.
“We wanted to host a special evening for all our valued guests This evening, laced with a dash of Mongolian flavour, is a perfect way to celebrate the year-end.”
