The restaurant is done up in a very modern bistro setting, with see through glass set in black squarish window panes and doors, with hip tungsten bulbs hanging from the ceiling.
Imagine my surprise, when I discovered it was a restaurant that served North and South Indian food! Most restaurants I know specialise in either North or South Indian food. This was a first for me. Imagine you getting both Naan (North Indian bread) and Roti Prata (South Indian bread) at the same restaurant.
I gathered my lunch kakis and came for lunch. These were the highlights from our meal:
- Pakoda mixed (This vegetable patty was chockful of vegetables, and was delicious to the last bite)
- Samosa (Huge fist sized potato filled pyramid-shaped bundles of joy. Must eat while its hot, I wished they had a counter along the street that allows you to order-and-go, to satisfy those moments when you are in a hurry and need sustenance on the go.)
- Paneer tikka (Cottage cheese cooked in tandoor. I personally prefer the cheese cooked in the spinach version, which we also ordered)
- Tandoori malai and Chicken Tikka Combination platter (I loved the chicken tikka very very much. The meat was juicy and nicely done. MUST TRY!)
- Dum Briyani (This dish was served in an oval casserole, which was covered in a roti pastry covering the whole dish and baked. Also comes with a hard boiled egg. I wished we had not ordered so much, so I could eat more of this!)
- Butter chicken (This was very well done and it goes well with the garlic and plain naan that we ordered)
- Garlic naan (Definitely one of the better ones I have had. Goes well with the curries and
- Kashmiri naan (Think a plain naan, stuffed in between with ‘a sweet jam comprising’ prunes, dates, raisins, cashew nuts! A very divine dish that can be eaten on its own and I loved it!)
- Gajar kahalwa (Traditional Indian Carrot dessert. The restaurant served this with vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate sauce. A very unique dessert - MUST TRY!)
Overall, a very satisfying meal and the prices here are not the high-end priced that you have to pay to dine for good North Indian food.
In addition, this outlet had a play area with a child size ‘house’ with play toys for the children to be kept entertained while their parents have a meal! Parents should try dining here with their young ones!
As we were leaving, I learnt from the staff that they have just opened a new outlet at Westgate. As I stay in the west, I will be visiting them at that outlet pretty soon, when I have my next craving for Indian food.
Must tries: butter chicken, Dum Chicken Briyani, Gajar Kahalwa, Tandoori malai and Chicken Tikka Combination platter
