Until the last couple of months I thought I hit the jackpot with this one. Especially after the sad demise of the pandara road eateries I felt like I finally found a replacement. But alas the curse of the Delhi restaurants: 'what was up must come down'. Though it has not hit the absolute bottom and is still better than most it definitely is not all that it could be.
It has both an indoor area and an alfresco. Neither is very impressive to look at. The alfresco has some tacky wedding tent like drapes adorning the ceiling.
The ok and the not so ok:
- The Dal Makhani - This is still the most amazing dal makhani around. Jigs Kalra's Bukhara legacy seems to be carrying on here.
- Tandoori Prawns - Nice big jumbo prawns - quite tasty.
- Lamb Chaap/Chops - Nice tender meat . Great marinate.
- Kheer - Really good you cant stop eating it!
Would like to try the pindi chana and raan next time and see what the fuss is about.
- Galouti Kabab - Usually one of my favourite kebabs but you guessed it not here. The problem is that someone in the kitchen seems to have mixed up the teaspoon sign for the table spoon. Just so so overly spiced its almost nauseating. You can forget about tasting the actual meat.
- Butter Chicken - I am still on the hunt for the best butter chicken in town and this one definitely did not make the cut.
- Mutton Seekh - Is ok - A little too rubbery for my liking.
- Mutton/Chicken Biryani - Not worth ordering and nothing more needs to be said.
- Chicken Malai Tikka - Again just okay. I would not order it again.
