April 10, 2024

Tucked away in Surrey’s lively Sullivan Heights, Clove: The Art of Dining invites discerning palates and adventurous spirits alike. During my recent visit, I embarked on a culinary adventure, immersing myself in a symphony of flavors crafted with finesse and flair.

Upon entering Clove’s realm, one is immediately captivated by an ambiance of refined elegance. Every detail, from the imported furnishings to the meticulously set tables, speaks volumes about the restaurant’s commitment to excellence. Designed by the illustrious Karin Bohn, whose visionary touch has graced the screens of Netflix’s “Restaurants on the Edge,” Clove’s aesthetic is a harmonious blend of sophistication and artistry, inviting guests to embark on a sensory journey unlike any other.

But let’s not delay the main act: the food. My culinary adventure commenced with a revelation – the New Delhi butter chicken, a tantalizing fusion of roasted tomatoes, fenugreek, and succulent tandoori chicken, expertly balanced with a side of freshly baked naan. It was a dish so divine that even the most discerning of taste buds would bow in reverence.

Yet, what truly sets Clove apart is its audacious exploration of flavors. From lobster chettinad to duck rajasthani, each dish defies convention, offering a symphony of spices that dance upon the palate. The pièce de résistance? The Awadhi Raan – a slow-cooked lamb leg infused with the fragrant spices of Lucknow, requiring a 24-hour pre-order and serving as a feast fit for royalty. For those seeking respite from the fiery depths of spice, fear not – Clove caters to all tastes with customizable spice levels, ensuring each dish is a symphony of flavors tailored to your preference.

And let us not overlook the libations – ah, the libations! Clove’s cocktail selection is a veritable ode to mixology mastery, with signature concoctions that are as mesmerizing as they are delicious. From the tantalizing Zero Proof Pineapple Mango Margarita to the captivating Bird of Paradise – a blend of Tanqueray No. 10 gin, Chambord liqueur, elderflower syrup, fresh lime juice, bitters, and a touch of botanical smoke – each drink is a work of art in a glass, igniting the senses and leaving a lasting impression.

But dining at Clove transcends mere sustenance – it is an immersive experience for the senses. The expansive dining room, complete with an indoor courtyard and private dining enclave, provides the perfect backdrop for culinary escapades of all kinds. With hospitality that rivals the grandeur of the dishes themselves, Clove’s attentive staff ensure that every whim is catered to, from dietary restrictions to whimsical cravings.

In conclusion, if you find yourself in the vicinity of Sullivan Heights, Surrey, and crave an epicurean adventure unlike any other, look no further than Clove: The Art of Dining. Within its hallowed halls, amidst the aroma of fragrant spices and the clinking of glasses, awaits a culinary odyssey that is sure to leave you spellbound and satiated.
