Lasseters Hotel Casino is thrilled to announce the name of their new restaurant ‘Tali’. Tali opens on Tuesday 22 of October and is set to be the finest dining experience in Central Australia.

Tali means ‘sand dunes’ in the Pitjantjatjara language of Central Australian and is a recurring theme in many local artworks featured within the new Premium hotel wing.  As well as strongly linking the restaurant to its Central Australian location, Tali is also reflective of restaurant décor in terms of colour palette, carpet design, artwork, and landscaping.

Tali provides seating for 180 people and diners have the option of sitting inside or outside on a shaded deck. Two private rooms will also be available and are perfect for staff parties, meetings or special occasions.

Local landscaper Tony Parkyn has been contracted to create a large garden featuring shrubs, trees, grasses and flowers local to the area.  A miniature Todd River will run the length of the garden and curious visitors will be able to find out more about the local flora with informational plaques dotted throughout.  Evening guests will still enjoy the vista with the installation of strategic lighting that highlights some of the gardens best features.

Tali will be open seven days a week, and offer breakfast (buffet and a la carte), lunch and dinner as well as brunch until 2pm on the weekends.  A la carte table service will be complemented by an exciting wine list that combines popular wines with a few rarer, more unusual offerings.

Chief Operating Officer, Chris Sartori, is delighted with the restaurant; “Tali will provide our local and visiting guests with a dining experience that is second to none in the region, offering cuisine that is a blend of modern Australian fare with a hint of the Outback. As well as providing an additional attraction to visitors, Tali will employ an additional 10 staff. “

This restaurant is part of a venue-wide $35 million redevelopment project.  Demolition has commenced at the northern end of the property to make way for a new hotel reception and fitness & massage treatment centre, which will be completed mid-2014.
