The 101 Table at the Taj Falaknuma Palace is the most opulent and the longest dining table in the world and is a quintessential dining venue for royals. For the exquisite dinner, a team of culinary experts led by Executive Chef Sajesh Nair, presented a royal five-course menu inspired by Hyderabad’s Telangana and Nizami cuisine. Famous local delicacies such as Dahi Ke Kebab, Gosht Shikampuri Kebab, Kubani Ke Malai Kofta, Murg Pista Ka Salan and Sitaphal Kulfi were presented over the various courses.

The signature menu gave the distinguished guests a taste of local Indian ingredients such as sandalwood, saffron and figs. The chefs took inspiration from the guarded recipes of the Nizams to create a unique dining experience.

The table decor was inspired by the rich cultural heritage of the Deccan region. Rare artifacts and silver decorative pieces were brought in from the Nizam’s private collection at Chowmahalla Palace; while all upholstery used during the dinner was made with locally sourced fabrics such as Ikkat, Teliya and Velvet.  

Ivanka Trump’s welcome at the Palace was marked by signature Indian traditional arrival ritual. The magnificent ritual began with a traditional aarti and lighting of the lamp ceremony, signifying prosperity and luck.

The elaborate dining set up was laid out with the palace’s collection of glassware and silverware, along with personalized menus for each guest. A gong was played to signify the beginning of each course and a personal butler, dressed in a traditional sherwani and vibrant headgear, served each of the 101 diners. A series of finely curated performances set the stage for an enduring tribute to the rich cultural legacy of India.
