I love almost everything here, from the food to the service to the ambience. Especially the food - though presenting almost a similar serving size, is so much more substantial and value-for-money than another north Indian restaurant I tried recently, Chat Masala.
The ambience was really cosy with very contemporary furniture. There were really very nice and comfortable sofas and cushions. Surrounding is clean too and there's privacy. Every table seems to be set in a small mini corner where even the most private of conversations can take place because there're walls behind you.
We ordered 2 naans - a plain naan and a garlic flavoured one. We also had butter chicken, palak paneer and mango lassi. We also ordered a starter - I can't recall the name but it was impressive with the side dips like jam with some tang to it. The butter chicken totally exceeded my expectations! I was also delighted I could at least eat some chunks of butter chicken and not only gravy as I had experienced in another restaurant. The palak paneer and cottage cheese was good. There was just a "Wow" factor in almost all their dishes.
Nevertheless, the garlic naan was a little on the oily side but still very fulfilling. I wasn't too used to drinking such a thick drink like Mango Lassi so that was more of a no-go for me - just personal preference, nothing to do with the restaurant. No doubt the price is a little on the steep side, but it's worth the money.
Overall, a very satisfying meal at Kinara.
