Being a desi person its always exciting to be invited by any Pakistani/Indian restaurant and Patiala restaurant has been on my radar for quite sometime. Located in the amidst of glistering shops and restaurants of Souk Al Bahar, just a stone’s throw away from Dubai Mall. Patiala is a famous Indian restaurant famous for its unforgettable flavors.
Sophisticated ambiance and contemporary interiors make it an apt place for special occasions and dinners. The open kitchen let you observe all the hustle bustle of kitchen. We were there for their brunch menu and got spoiled for some delectable choices.
Our session got started with the appetizing Nadru Chaat and those who has been following me knows am a big buff of it. The visually appealing chaat made us drooling with its taste and presentation. We did leave any morsel on our plate and that explains all 😉
After crunchy chaat we were served mix platter, again in visual appealing style. The platter was a melody of assorted succlent kababs, each variety was soft, well marinated and cooked to perfection. I have been to many places and tried this kinda platter but patiala impressed me with every aspect.
In main course we got to try Chicken Biryani, Lamb Curry, Daal Makhni and Butter Chicken along with some fresh indian breads. Long grain rice biryani with earthy aromatic flavor will surely delight your taste buds, daak makhni was lusciously smooth and that any one would want to finish it just with spoon. Lamb curry a heart dish which I relish with peshawari naan. Peshawari Naan an exciting sweet version of classic naan filled with coconut and almonds. I have never tried any sweet bread with curry but the combo was quirky and grew on my tastebuds with every bite. However butter chicken couldn’t impress me as it was sweet to my liking.
In desserts our sweet cravings were satisfied with desi sweet, hot and drenched in sugar syrup Gulab Jaman, it was like a cotton ball in mouth. Apricot halwa and mango icecream were equally amazing and we fed ourselves to the full.
How come you leave an indian restaurant without trying out Karak Tea? we did the need full by ordering Karak Tea and ended our session on hot cuppa.
Many assume that fine dining restaurants don’t do justice with the desi taste (Indian/Pakistani) but I can safely say that Patiala proves it wrong. Here you get luxury of fine dining with authentic lingering Indian taste and Chef Santosh deserves the appreciation for this. Do try this place and thank me later!
