The ambience to the restaurant is quite unique. Well, I guess that can be said for most of the restaurants in Starhill.
But even though that is expected but that adds to a pleasant surprise.
Food wise - we were served with the best & recommended dishes from the restaurant.
We started off with the mango lassi (RM17). This was to me quite a must-try at North Indian restaurants, and was looking forward to it. However, the drink wasn't chilled, and that made the taste kinda flat.
The first starter we had was the papadam. It was unusual for it to be shaped similar to that of the 'love letters'. I found it a lil spicy when dipped with the sauces ( . But I must say, it was good.
They served us platters like the Kebab sampler pattler which was alrite, but not that fantastic, to me.
Tandoori lamb chop (RM50) - which was well marinated, and the meat cooked just right.
Chicken Tikka Masala (RM35) - which, like the lamb chop, was well marinated. And the meat was uber tender.
And the lamb briyani (RM45).. which was cooked the way briyanis should be (to me, at least).. where the rice and meat is served in one, and the tastes are blended together.
Oh yeah, we also had naans, which were just okay. Except for maybe the Chilli cheese kulzza (RM20) - which is the fresh fluffy bread packed with mild yellow cheddar, piquant chilli and fresh coriander. Maybe it was because it was my first time trying it out.
We also had desserts. I'm a fan of desserts, but never really for North Indian desserts so the Khajooor Kulfi (RM18) -
Homemade frosty flavoured with exotic dates & the Lychee Kulfi (RM18) - Homemade frosty flavoured with exotic lychees didn't impress my taste buds much, though I think maybe for a North Indian cuisine dessert fan, that might work differently.
Overall, I'd rate the restaurant 3.5 out of 5. There are only a few dishes which I really enjoyed even from the Top Recommended menu and I find the price a lil high - but then again, which North Indian restaurant comes in cheap.
Also, while I find the ambience is not too bad, but I think the presentation of the food could be better especially for their deep gravy dishes. This could be a hindrance when we want to dine to impress.
