Seekh kebab khandhari fine minced lamb seasoned with aromatic Indian herbs & spices were soft and juicy with right kick of taste.Chutney Wale Maachi De Tikke cubes of hammour marinated in green chutney were grilled to perfection.Bhatti Da Murg is a gem from the streets of punjab,a rustic melt-in-your-mouth chicken kebab that is traditionally cooked in earthen kilns. Kadai Chicken was a tad spicy for my palate.Lamb Roagn Josh,spicy slow-cooked lamb curry is an Indian classic dish originally from Persia. This fiery lamb curry was succulent and goes well with butter naan. Deep fried potato and paneer balls coated with malai infused perfectly in onion-tomato gravy known as Malai Kofta was one of the veg options in the buffet. Steamed Rice with Maan Sabat, at first I skipped them intentionally and moved next to try Chicken Biryani but believe me if you are dinning here than don’t forget to try Maan Sabat. It was creamy and so soothing I ended up having two servings of it.
In desserts they had Gajar ka Halwa and Phirni. I am not a halwa fan so my choice was obvious. Phirni was creamy,light and the sweetness was not overpowering which I really liked.
