Imagine embarking on a culinary adventure right before your flight or after landing, with a wide array of cuisines from around the globe at your fingertips.

Chef’s Table - one of United Group’s flagship ventures - makes this possible with the unveiling of its largest outlet at Centrepoint Level-5, adjacent to Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (HSIA).

This gastronomic paradise offers a medley of international cuisines, fast food, fine dining, and vegan options, making it a one-stop destination for food lovers.

Since opening its first outlet in 2018 at Gulshan Circle-2, Chef’s Table has become a favourite for those seeking a variety of dishes from different restaurants in one convenient location.

Its successful expansion now includes outlets in Dhanmondi, Madani Avenue, Gulshan Circle-1, Sylhet, Narayanganj, and the HSIA.

“This is the largest Chef’s Table outlet, with 50 different restaurants covering almost 40,000 square feet,” said Sajibur Rahaman, the outlet manager of Chef’s Table – Operation, Indulge Food and Beverage Limited.

“We have divided the entire area into three zones, ensuring that no two stalls of the same type of cuisine are adjacent, providing an international food court experience,” he said.

What sets Chef’s Table apart from other food courts is its dedicated management team, which ensures international service quality for all guests.

“It is like a world tour because you can get so much variety in a single place. We offer a diverse range of food so that every group of people can enjoy it at a minimal price, with meals ranging from Tk 400 to Tk 1,500,” Rahaman said.

The culinary variety is astounding, featuring Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Italian, Indian, Jamaican, Lebanese, Turkish, British, and American cuisines, among others.

Afia Afrin, a private employee, expressed her delight, saying, “Chef’s Table is a place where we can enjoy quality time comfortably. It is a blessing for us who reside in Uttara now that it is now at Centrepoint. I love the thought of shopping here with the whole family and having some peace with the kids.”

Mahfuz Nafi, a public university student, praised the international standards of the venue. “It is a place where one can enjoy food in pleasant surroundings. I love bringing friends to Chef’s Table, and I really like this new location,” he said.

The proximity to the airport also attracts foreign visitors. Alex, an Australian resident, shared his surprise: “I did not know such an international-level place existed in Bangladesh. It is similar to what we see in Europe or other Western countries. The service is good, and the food is excellent. I loved it.”

People can find diverse culinary shops at the venue, and Indulge Cafe is one of them. Jubayer Hossain, the commis chef of the cafe, said, “We offer different types of cuisine starting from Tk 245 up to Tk 1,295. We have Indian, Afghan, Spanish, British, and other varieties of cuisine at reasonable prices.”

Marco Polo is another notable restaurant offering a journey through flavours from France to Japan, inspired by the famous sailor's travels.

“We cover every type of cuisine starting from Tk 295 up to Tk 995,” said the outlet manager.

Crisp, a fast-food restaurant, serves beloved classics like crispy french fries, juicy burgers, spicy wings, golden chicken fry, and crunchy nuggets, with prices starting at Tk 155 and going up to Tk 1,645.

They pride themselves on sourcing chicken from their own farm and spices from different parts of the world, ensuring top-quality food.

Wok Way is a full-fledged Chinese, Asian, and North-western restaurant offering a diverse range of food like fried rice, wonton, soup, chilli chicken, salad, and chow mein, starting from Tk 195 up to Tk 695.

Whether you are in the mood for kebabs, pizza, pasta, salads, or Bengali cuisine, Chef’s Table has something for everyone.

The atmosphere is vibrant, with people from all walks of life enjoying their meals and each other’s company.

Unimart: A shopper's delight at Centrepoint

Complementing the dining experience of Chef’s Table, Unimart too has launched its largest outlet at Centrepoint Basement-1, spanning almost 50,000 square feet.

This super shop offers a comprehensive shopping experience, from daily groceries to speciality food items, where customers can find fresh fruits, vegetables, bakery goods, toys, jewellery, stationery, and much more under one roof.

To celebrate the grand opening, United Group opened a fair titled “Centre for Happiness,” running from Thursday until the night before Eid-ul-Azha.
