OVERVIEW

The restaurant is located right in the heart of West Delhi’s famous Pacific mall. The restaurant spread is humongous on third floor which makes it inevitably catchy to draw attention of masses. They specialize in mostly Indian food with lots of variations and innovation, else who would imagine or have heard about ‘motichoor ladoo’ shake? The place offers the most spectacular ambience which gives everybody all reasons to be here. The music also deserves a mention here ,those who love Indian old and contemporary melodies.

AMBIENCE

Much has already been said above but that’s not it, they paintings of maharajas around definitely give it royal look while modern amenities give a complete touch to finesse. The big chandelier in the mini courtyard is surely a breath taking object; It illuminates not only the surrounding but also eyes that brings a challenge to them –that is to be the best at what they serve.

After being completely mesmerised with their welcome gesture and astounding ambience we got to the dining table reserved for us

DRINKS

Mango duet– A perfect combination of vanilla and mango concentrate, blended finely with punch of mango real in it was a sufficient drink itself to fill one’s tummy, a bit on sweeter side though.

Lavender Scented Nariyal Paani Detox– Not a perfume folks!! Yes, it’s a drink, lavender is mixed with nariyal paani and I believe Nariyal paani was never so good before .It enhances its taste multiple folds.

Alkaline Shikanji– They made sure their creation outstands! They used alkaline black water having ph 8.0 which is a rare and expensive deal in India .Paying heavy Import duty didn’t deter them bringing the goodness of it (minerals and what not) !!Chuckles! Also the jeera and masala was so appropriate, that surely make you feel like a maharaja having royal shikanji.

STARTERS

Palak Patta Chaat– Spinach in chaat? – Surely a cheat in general sense. Voila! The spinach thin layered pakoda topped with chaat filling (tomato, onion and potato mixed with curd, sweet and mint chutney).A must ot mention is the crispy fried palak leaves that was not at all tummy filling.

Mushroom tikki– Being a mushroom lover is not so easy, for not every good chef knows how to give it a taste. I can vouch after having this wonderful delicacy that the chef has got magic in his hands. The tikkis were delicate, perfectly blended with spices and so impeccably cooked that got me love struck .

Kurkuri the cheese corn filled tubes made of kurkuri bhujia on top and then deep fried served with sweet chilli sauce was an absolute delight. A must for all cheese lovers!

Hara bhara Kabab– Its always a delight for a vegetarian and I have say I tasted something very different version of it here! The kababs were unusually pan fried and were very soft.

Main course

Kumbh makai takatak– this mixute of mushroom ,corn and baby corn were interesting at first sight and the taste also keep our interest unremitting .The mixture of spices used and cooking, were so appropriate that urges me to recommend it to everybody who loves kumbh and makai.

Soya chaap masala– If its oil or whatever the gravy was cooked in ,it gave me the taste of homemade dishes .I absolutely loved it .Partial reason could also be the easiness I found to cut soya rolls with spoon ,which has always been a pain for me elsewhere .

Stuffed onion Kulcha– Usually breads do not get a mention anywhere, I also never did it but there was something so impeccable with their tandoor or their style (that only the chef and kitchen inmates know ),that urges me write about it .The bread was unusually very fluffy and soft and perfect stuff made it one of the best I had so far!

SWEET DISH-

Lichi Ki Tehri-

Sweet tooth does not satiate with anything except sweets. After filling my gut till its last centimetre, i ordered this dish –it made me inquisitive! And then came was lichi and rabri mixture (prepared by cooking milk to extreme and adding sweetness to it) perfectly blended that it makes one wonder if lichi has milk like properties too .Nothing could beat that both being my favourite .

SERVICE

The crew is very elegant and informed .They always wear smile and do not get bothered if you asked them to do something extra. Kudos to the professionalism and training imparted in them!

COST

It’s true that every good experience comes with a cost .The prices might look inflated a bit in the beginning but after having gone through such wonderful fine dine experience, it feels it was worth it! The menu as you go through might give you a burning sensation in pocket but it’s affordable for the good times with family, friends and office colleagues.
