Kashkan offers a luxurious indoor dining experience, featuring private cabanas and group seating options. The bright outdoor section provides enchanting views of the Dubai Festival City Mall’s fountain, a visual delight. The restaurant’s interior is a masterpiece of design, adorned with vibrant and colorful décor that vividly reflects its rich concept and cultural roots.
Inside, you’ll discover five distinctive private dining rooms, each intricately designed to depict the unique essence of a different Indian state, complete with its captivating narrative. The bistro section offers a glimpse into the live kitchen, seamlessly blending chic sophistication with a laid-back atmosphere.
