'Multi-cultural' taste is key to new Belfast restaurant, Maze

A new restaurant in Belfast has created 25 full and part-time jobs.

Maze Restaurant, based on the site of the Carlton Bar and Grill on Wellington Place, promises to have a "multi-cultural" offering and will serve 130 covers.

Behind the new business is chef and restaurateur Michael Karan, who moved to Northern Ireland from New Delhi, India, 10 years ago.

"We have experts in Asian, Indian and Continental food, so we want people to have a wide variety of excellent dishes to choose from in a warm and welcoming atmosphere," he said. "We are confident that we will become an essential part of Belfast's popular night-life".

Head chef, Marcus Diego, has worked in restaurants throughout the world including the US. The Maze's team of chefs include one of Belfast's top Indian chefs, Jainal Abedin, who was head chef at leading Indian restaurant Bengal Brasserie for over 17 years, as well as sous chef John, who came from Gaucho restaurant London.

Mr Karan said he wants to establish the restaurant in the locality.

"Our aim is to become part of the fabric of Belfast life, a place where you can come for breakfast, lunch and enjoy sumptuous dinners with wine and cocktails in the evenings.

"We will be open non-stop from 8am until late to suit people's increasingly varied and busy lifestyles," he said.
