Last Monday, I went there and started my meal with INDO-PERSIAN KEBAB (Rs.325/+taxes). Here four small pieces of kebab, rolled in roomali roti were being served with green mint chutney. The meat was well minced with spices, had a very soft texture almost like kakori kebab and I loved this tiny creation. But personally I felt that the size could have been better for the given price.
Had heard a lot of praises from fellow foodies about their NALLI NIHARI (Rs.425/+taxes) so ordered for the same. Two pieces of lamb shanks were served in light golden coloured gravy that was not much appealing in terms of colour. Meat was cooked for long hours as it was literally falling off from the bone and the gravy was thick BUT it was on a creamier side and had no flavour hence didn’t like it.
In the end, I had HOME STYLE CHICKEN CURRY (Rs.345/+taxes) with laccha parantha. Dark brown coloured gravy prepared with right amount of grounded spices was outstanding. The chicken pieces were succulent and I enjoyed every bite of this flavourful dish that was mildly spicy. Loved it !!
I also wanted to try baingan ka bharta, dahi bhalle, yellow dal and kathal biryani but my appetite surrendered, so will visit soon to try them.
In a nutshell this new age cafe is a perfect place for dining, shopping and drinking (hookah too).
Total bill costed Rs. 1222/- after a discount in ‘Nalli nihari’ only (for obvious reasons).
