Located in Damac executive towers (Dubai internetcity is the closest metro station), an authentic Indian restaurant with great hospitality and amazing food is embedded. Our host was Virendra, who was really helpful and explained everything really well.
As soon as we sat, they served the 'Papad' and 'Chaach'(buttermilk); the buttermilk is served in a small cute glass (they do change their complimentary drinks everyday)
The chutneys served were pineapple, mint, sweet tamarind and pickle. I loved the pineapple chutney the most, it had spices, the sweetness and sourness of pineapple. 'Dahi Baray': it was soft, sour, a little spicy and totally delicious. The green and red chutney slightly decorated on top enhances the dish, its definitely an Indian authenticity presented to crave for more.
(The above items are served complimentary so there is no price placed)
'Palak Patta Chaat': it was super crispy, crunchy, with yogurt, green chutney, and sweet tamarind poured on it and lastly the 'sev' sprinkled on top. This is a must try!
'Jaljeera': this a very "masala filled" drink. Its more towards the sour end, you can definitely taste the cumin and mint and it's topped with boondi. Really refreshing! [AED 16]
'Mango lassi': thick sweet lassi with a twist of mango. Fruitilicous! [AED 17]
'Lassi Manpasad': the traditional thick yogurt shake (you can pick between sweet or salted lassi) [AED 17]
Served on our table was the vegetarian and non vegetarian Kebab platters.
Vegetarian platter consists of:
Dahi ke Kebab: this Kebab was different than any other I have tried. The base was a nicely toasted bread (almost like a baguette) with a yogurt spices mixture on top. It's really filling and gives a very yogurty buttery kind of taste, a good savory dish.
Paneer Makhmali Seekh Kebab: the paneer had a lot of taste in it, well marinated and well cooked. You can really taste that it's cooked over the charcoal.
Note: the whole vegetarian platter is for [AED 65] it can be ordered individually as well.
The Non vegetarian platter:
Murgh Banjara Kebab (chicken): very tender chicken marinated in a spicy batter, really soft and juicy. [AED 35]
Malai Kebab (chicken): Melts in the mouth! Cheese infused, soft and grilled so well.
Mutton Seekh Kebab: marinated mutton Kebab with herbs and spices, soft and tender, more towards the spicy end. [AED 37]
Tandoori lamb chops: the flavor and spices could be tasted in every bite, cooked very well and it's more towards the spicy end. Much recommended. [AED 55]
Ajwani Fish tikka: it has the aroma and flavor of carom seeds. Again very, very soft and juicy. It's a mild tikka.
Jhinga Mehrunnissa: well marinated prawns, grilled to perfection. A little to the spicy end.
Note: the whole non vegetarian platter is for [AED 79] (consists of chicken, mutton, fish and prawns)
'Dum Nariali Prawns': I loved this dish! It's their speciality and definitely a winner. It's marinated prawns dum cooked in spices and coconut milk served in a young coconut sealed shut. In every bite you can definitely taste the flavor of coconut, curry leaves and spices. It's more towards the sweet end, really delicious and flavorful. [AED 59]
'Nalli Rogan Josh': mutton with bone cooked with tomatoes, chilies, fried onion and masala. It looks like 'Paya' but the flavor is quite different. More towards the spicy end.
'Murgh Kholapuri': a very aromatic, south western Indian chicken curry, more towards the spicy end.
Rice and breads~
'Dum Pukht Chicken Biryani': the 'Handi' (mud pot) was sealed shut with the dough and as soon as it was opened the wonderful aroma uplifted. The chicken had all the flavor in it, the rice were cooked well and separately. [AED 44]
'Bread Basket': this basket had tandoori roti, plain naan, butter naan, garlic naan and roomali roti, all made warm and fresh. All of them were equally mouth watering but I loved the garlic and butter naan. [AED 29]
In love with this platter! It's called the 'Dessert Sampler' [AED 52], it has small portions of all the desserts in the menu.
I will be placing the price individually below for all the desserts in the platter.
'Shahi Tukda': buttery, fried bread soaked in syrup of cream, milk, sugar and topped with nuts. Yumm! [AED 22]
'Gulab Jamun': The best and cutest ones I have had! You can taste the milkiness in the Jamun (milk balls which are deep fried). Simple and delicious. [AED 20]
'Firni': this rice pudding definitely had cardamom and saffron, and it was presented beautifully in the pot but it didn't have enough sugar atleast of how a rice pudding should have. [AED 19]
'Kulfi': This had infused orange flavor with bits of oranges which is very unique. [AED 19]
'Rasmalai': love this one too! So creamy, soft, saffron and nuts bought out the flavor even more. [AED 20]
