A restaurant that has been operational since a while in Mahalakshmi. Always planning, but just the thought of driving or reaching there exhausts me. And it remained on my list. Finally an outpost of the main one, opened a while back, very close to my house, heard good things about it and have been meaning to go there but somehow kept missing it out. A friend from out of town dropping by and then a party where we ordered in. Equal veg and non veg. Over the two times tried

Bhutta malai sheekh – good, liked by everyone, did not work for me because don’t like American corn very much; Aloo panch foran – very good repeated both times.

In the Non veg tried Gilawat kebab and worked pretty well, more so with hot roomali rotis and pyaaz.

The mains had Paneer makhni pasanda – excellent, worked for the kids, personally found it a bit sweetish; there was an aloo dish that I liked but can’t recall the name, but Baigan aur Mirchi ka salan was quite a change and very good.

The murg baradari korma and kashmiri rogan josh were both outstanding; followed by Tarkari Dum Biryani – quite piquant in taste and common for all with Lasuni dal tadka, which was extremely good when had there but lacking a bit of dum when ordered home.

Personally loved the Nizami kakdi raita with pomegranate seeds, quite different. The assortment of warqi paratha, naan and roomali worked well, but the packing for breads needs to be a bit better.

All of this polished off finally with Angoori Rabdi – the master which made everyone forget the missed tadka etc. The only sweet that we had because of popular demand, but I don’t eat it.

Definitely on my repeat list. But I seriously wonder why they cannot have a tasting menu 🙁
