Copper Chimney, the award-winning contemporary restaurant brand from India, has opened its first venue in Dubai. A pioneer in Indian cuisine for the past 46 years, the brand’s doors are now at the Millennium Plaza Hotel, on Sheikh Zayed Road.


COPPER CHIMNEY BRINGS ITS MUCH-LOVED flavours and dishes to the ground floor of the Millennium Plaza Hotel, Dubai on Sheikh Zayed Road. Art Deco meets modern sensibility, the 130-seat restaurant features earthy cane interiors and modernday art décor set across two floors. From the open kitchen, a team of passionately nurtured artists known as Ustads craft eclectic dishes and enjoyable small plates through a variety of cooking techniques, using custom-made tandoors for preparing signature Copper Chimney grills and handmade breads.

At Copper Chimney, the Tandoors are the heart of the kitchen; each of the grills is marinated for over eight hours to optimise flavour like no other. The Ustads or Master Chefs are trained for a number of years, even decades, with knowledge of secret spice mixes, cooking styles and recipes that have been passed down through generations and bring together fresh, made-toorder cooking using high quality produce. The Copper Chimney brand promise is of ‘’Indian Food, Made Unforgettable.’’ No compromises on quality, products, ingredients and flavours.

Brand Director of Copper Chimney, Mrs. Shikha Nath said: “Over the past four decades, Copper Chimney has taken millions of guests on a culinary journey exploring and celebrating Indian cuisine, culture and flavours. We are thrilled to be open in Dubai  and working with our franchise partners, Exquisite International Restaurants, to bring our flavours to this international dining destination. “Copper Chimney has become a culinary landmark since its humble beginnings in Bombay and we hope to share some of those flavours here with the residents of Dubai and the rest of the UAE,” she added.

Copper Chimney was founded by Mr JK Kapur, a prominent Bollywood filmmaker and avid food connoisseur. Mr JK Kapur left everything behind and migrated to India during the partition of India in 1947; 25 years after he first came to Bombay, he opened the first Copper Chimney in erstwhile Bombay in 1972. Since then, over the past 46 years, Copper Chimney has created bespoke recipes, dishes and cooking techniques from a variety of influences across undivided North India. Known for serving honest and heartfelt Indian cuisine, the distinctive menu offers signature grills, tandoor grilled meats and vegetables, biryanis and curated small plates.
