Menu Type: Tamarind Dhow Restaurant will be operating on an A LA CARTE menu. This is a Menu that has all menu items priced separately, and the customers will be allowed to give separate orders of what they will desire.
Tamarind Dhow restaurant will use the Food M 2 as the food theme and Lobster chocolate as the drinks theme. The food theme is a multicolor kind and it is set on at least five different colors, which were facilitated by the powerful themes options available to such a restaurant.

The Tamarind Dhow restaurant is a woody built restaurant that is surrounded by thick mangrove forests and it depicts the conventional thematic ideas. It is a thatched restaurant with the coconut leaves and equipped with the traditional furniture to give it the extraordinary image of the home away from home, which is different from the modern designed restaurants by the other corporations.
It is a restaurant that is designed to depict the dhow image and woodly state which makes it more exciting and overwhelming. It has the traditional stumps as the sitting areas and tables in the outside terrace, which make Tamarind Dhow a restaurant of choice. It is out of these creative images that the customers are set to play with the seawater as they enjoy the sunset cocktails and offers.
Customer service goals as well as the owner’s goals are varied though many of them augur very well. The restaurant is set to offer quality foods and drinks to its clients at a reasonable price that is affordable by a person with an average income. Moreover, the restaurant will offer timely themed catering services to its customers according to the client’s preferences.

Market gap that has fueled the creation of this restaurant is based on the fact that majority of the clients were are targeting are bored by the ordinary town restaurants settings and locations and they want a place where they can have a meal as they enjoy the sea environment and nature without having to struggle much. This restaurant has the potential of doing very well because the menu is particular to the customers’ needs as opposed to many Table d’ horte menu restaurants in the area. It is as well the only floating restaurant and it has the likeliness of experiencing a huge number of customers.
