‘It was love at first sight’ – Engineer says of Miss Wang

By Joshua Trias 

Dubai, UAE: Everybody’s upbeat about this international city’s dining scene these days as activities gather steam and more restaurants slowly return to normal operations in accordance with strict government guidelines to prevent the spread of the pandemic.

One such person is Engr. Bharat Naidu, who just recently ventured from the real estate/construction sector to food and beverage, having acquired the popular bar, Miss Wang on Level P1 of the Majestic City Retreat Hotel along Al Mankhool Rd.

“I acquired the business in the first quarter of 2021. Needless to say, 2020 has been devastating for the hospitality industry, globally. But 2021 will definitely be the game-changer,” said a really optimistic Naidu.

Naidu said he has always been a food and beverage enthusiast. 

“In all my travels across the globe, I have always been impressed with the diverse food on offer, although I do have a special place for Pan- Asian cuisine. So, when I came across the opportunity to engage with Miss Wang, it was love at first sight! This is my first food and beverage venture and most definitely won’t be the last,” said Naidu. 

Naidu said running Miss Wang is a “challenging task.”

“But, I’m absolutely loving it,” he said.

“The pandemic,” Naidu added, “has created new norms, which limit your reach unlike in the past for a metropolitan city like Dubai. The consumers have become price-sensitive due to the Covid-influenced austerity measures, which in turn compromises the turnovers. But this is expected to elevate. 

“The slack period helps me analyze the business better and prepare for the busy period. I may still be learning the ropes but I have a dynamic team supporting me to achieve the goals,” he said. 

Doing business in Dubai is awesome, Naidu said, who has been in the city for the past 12 years. 

“It’s a land of opportunities. The infrastructure of the country is absolutely terrific, thus will always be the destination of choice for people to travel post the pandemic era. 

“The spectrum of learning from various nationalities and cultures are very broad and local laws are always encouraging for people trying to establish themselves as entrepreneurs. I think the visionary leaders of the country have been truly passionate in making Dubai the best place to live and I for one am here to realize that dream,” he said. 

Naidu, who holds a degree in mechanical engineering from Karnataka University in India, is heir to a family business that his late father started from scratch. He had been into human resource consultancy and on to real estate and construction.
