And so they say the best showcase of a culture is in its food, this restaurant has been nominated by Doug’s North Indian ex-boss, as the cuisine closest to the authentic taste of his hometown.
.
For starters, always get something barbecued, easy to eat, to begin the meal experience. A tikka will do the trick. We had half a chicken tandoori ($14). The chicken is tender, pleasantly marinated in a concoction of spices that coat the pieces and sets this apart from your casual grill.
.
Now enter the naan. Soft and fluffy, the naan ($3.50) is easily torn into bite-sized pieces, easy to savour if you enjoy that freshly baked texture with a little steam coming from the bread.
.
Now for the perennial favourite, the butter chicken ($14.50). The primary use of this dish is for dipping your naan, to soak up all the goodness (or unhealthiness😅) of the butter curry. Chicken is tender, flavourful, and comes in little morsels best eaten with the naan. Just a light heat, this is less spicy compared to the tandoori but the curry gravy is heavenly, and with a good hit from the spices.
.
Chicken dum Briyani ($12.50) topped off our meal. The long grain rice is extremely fragrant with cardamom seeds and anise star delighting the senses, definitely one of the most fragrant chicken briyani around. Chicken pieces are generous, fragrant, and will definitely keep you wanting more!
.
Washing down all the lovely culture in the meal is a cup of Teh Halia ($3). Ginger infused milk tea, this gives a soothing heat that goes down well with all the spicy food.
Ready for your immersion yet? 😏
