Nice place for family gettos! (Nice for couples as well)
In addition to usual à la carte; there is special menu focusing on “Kebab and Biryani Festival” which is in progress till 11 Dec…
Restaurant with Bollywood theme having touch of “Angry Young Man” era as well as recent past. Open air seating with decently spaced tables, some of them having lighting from underneath. Decent score in background enough to mast inter-table conversations. Sophisticated crowd (read … family oriented environment).
Kebabs (select few)
Non Veg kebabs-
Mahi Tikka: Betki fish chunks marinated in red chilies along with Spices. It was nice!
Gosht Charminar Kebab: Lamb seekh kebab; flavorful with coating of egg batter. Decent!
Murgh Tikka Kali Mirch: Chicken pieces with lots of crushed black pepper (not ground). Black pepper had a bite towards the end. Excellent!
Murgh Dohari Kebab: Fried chicken tikka with flavor of Ghee and cardamom; cheese and spices. Good!
Paneer Siya Mirch Tikka: Fresh paneer marinated in crushed black peppers. Decent!
Subz Vilayati Kebab: Exotic vegetables like broccoli, baby-corn & peppers; coated with spicy marinade. Great!
Palak Anardana Tikki: Tikkis made from spinach, split lal chana & Potato mash. Deep fried and garnished with pomegranate. Wonderful!
Gosht Hyderabadi Biryani: Multilayered proportion of rice and tender mutton chunks cooked with dark spices. Very good!
Matka Murgh Dum Biryani: Chicken chunks with clear flavor and fragrance of small cardamom. Rustic and good!
Paneer Tikka Biryani: Paneer tikka with nice blend of spices in multilayered preparation. Excellent and highly recommended! One of the best Veg biryanis tasted in recent times at Pune! Kudos… Chef BirSingh.
Veg Lukhnowi Biryani: Low on heat (not spices) Vegetable Biryani with flavor of small cardamom and touch of sweetness (Itar/Atar or edible fluid with fragrance … something similar to Kevda). Nice!
Rasmallai: Decent sized balls of Chena soaked and served in flavorful sweet condensed milk tasting close to Rabdi! Wonderful!
Gulabjamun: Served warm, melted in mouth!
What to expect: Overall; rich and nice preparations with nice texture and taste. Some decent cocktails as well!
