Fine Indian Food

With the $15 nett lunch promotions, I decided to try and wasn't disappointed. I had the tomato soup which was quite tasty. The cook decorated it with swirls of the cream on top. The main entree, the Butter Chicken was generous with lots of chicken slices in it and the sauce thick and creamy but not overpowering. They gave rice AND also naan bread to mop up the rest of the gravy. The basmati rice was nicely cooked, and it retained its shape, besides being fluffy and fragrant. But alas, my $15 nett lunch ballooned to $24 because of the order of a plain yogurt lassi...Other than the price of the lassi at $8, it was quite well made, and complemented the meal.

The other main entree was the vegetarian SUBZI JALFREZI...which I guess was the assorted vegetables. Maybe I will be back to try that.

We went for a family dinner to Clarke Quay and realised this was really the only Indian place - I was told there were a few but they closed down recently. And what a place we landed! Other than being severely overpriced for the ambience, the food quality did not live up. The service was quick enough but the nans (phew 7$) arrived cold, and the 3 vegetables having the same curry !! Come on even the menu describes the mirchi ka Salan to have a coconut/peanut base... How can it be same as the paneer gravy:( Can do much better when I spend $40/ person :(

worst Indian food i ever had and @ 130$ for 2 pax  .... dont waste your money here.
Ordered paneer tikka . ... the panner was hard as rubber must have been lying in freezer for few months, the fish curry was also one of the worst I had.

skip this place .. better places in Clark Quay to spend your hard earned money.

After reading the reviews here and hearing others, I expected more from this place than what I got. We were a group of 14.

Ambience was OK, but the tables were terrible in the dim indoors. The small tables had a big 15 inch square column as the leg, which means there is not much space for feet.

Service is what let me down most. "Still or Sparking?" - what a terrible start - $$$ is all they care about. Then we ordered. 4 mixed grills (we said 3, they said not enough), 3 malai kebabs, 14 samosas, naans, 3 veg briyani, 3 palak paneer, 3 butter chk, 3 rogan josh, 3 mushroom curry. We wanted to order less, but it became a "not enough" game. ... again trying to push the bill up. We only finished about 2/3 of the food.... and there were a few serious big appetites in the group.

The veg briyani was excellent. Unfortunately the rest were so-so, nothing to write home about....

In the end, I left feeling fleeced. $1000 or $70 per head for this??? I can do much better elsewhere..

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
