With K in tow this time, we ordered two typical North Indian dishes to share.
The murgh makhani (aka butter chicken masala $8.50) contained tender chunks of chicken cooked in butter, onion paste and tomato paste which was fragrant and savory.
As for kadai paneer ($8.00), the cottage cheese cubes were cooked with diced capsicum in an onion gravy. I liked the subtle cheesy flavor and the gravy was nicely spiced.
Both dishes weren't overly spicy, being North Indian which tended to be milder in spice level. However, portions were a little small.
We had plain rice ($2.50) which came with a bowl of simple coriander soup that was surprisingly a lot spicier than the cooked dishes. With hindsight, we should have ordered just one serving since the amount was huge and I wasn't able to finish mine, even though it's extremely flavorful and fluffy.
Since we were seated further inside the restaurant, the atmosphere was a lot better than my previous experience when I sat right at the entrance. Staff were helpful and efficient but cost was a tad high considering the serving sizes. Furthermore both service as well as GST were chargeable.
