The Craft Kitchen – Lokhandwala
Had heard about this place opening up and was also asked if I would review it. Sounded interesting and that too from a QSR only delivery perspective.
Asked for some assorted food to be sent. The day it was to be sent, guests landed up so placed a seperate order for additional food. Surprisingly it reached within 45 min.
The food that was to sent got miscommunicated and reached inordinately late.
However barring that, it was quite good. The starters Veg – Veg makhmali sheekh were soft and good for the elders who had gathered, accompanied by the chutney. The veg won tons were crispy, and went well with the spicy sauce. But the best was the chicken tikka. Excellent well marinated and succulent.
For the Mains Veg Malai kofta was excellent, a tad sweet for my taste. The paneer items – Paneer butter masala was standard, whereas Paneer Mirch Masala was great and a must order. The Non veg of Murg Makhani hit the spot and is already on the reorder list for sure.
The nan was a bit of a stretch. But the parathas – choora, phudina, lachha were great – piping hot.
The veg pulao and Jeera rice was upto the par.
The extra order of Gulab jamun was nice but half of them appeared to be burnt. Sweet dish does not seem to be the forte.
Non veg and vegetarian north indian style is a definite repeat. Though the extensive Chinese menu may have me giving it a shot.
Special mention about the perfect packing of both orders, using wooden cutlery.
