Critic's review

Diane de Beer

Food
This hotel restaurant has that nostalgic, old-fashioned flair, which is great in today’s fast food culture. You could turn it into quite a grand affair if you want, to but casual won’t be frowned at. Because they’re in the city centre, and this is a diplomatic city, there’s an international feel about the place. The menu choice is staggering, and it’s fun to explore from the more familiar dishes like creamy chicken korma and dahl makhni, to the more adventurous chicken vindaloo or dahl gosht, which both introduce some bite to the meal. Vegetarians will be pleased to find a good selection, from the aloo ghobi (cauliflower with masala sauce) to jeera aloo (potato with roasted cumin and mango powder), all of which can form part of a mix and match meal. Speak to the manager and waiters to help guide you as you travel through this vast cuisine landscape that can differ hugely from one meal to the next. In order to maximise your choice and to have the most fun, it’s best to go in a group, so you can taste a whole range of dishes.

Drinks
This is a no alcohol establishment. Usually the good choice for a drink is a mango lassi, but they also serve a good Bombay crush.

Service
The staff is attentive and very helpful, especially when you have to make tough menu choices.

Ambience
It’s the kind of place without too much style, but with lots of soul. You have to provide the charm and the chatter. So gather a group and add some personal bonhomie to the meal.

And…
It’s easily accessible with parking at the door, which is perfect both for diners or those who want to pick up a quick takeaway.

    There’s an old-world air about the place and the way diners are hosted and served. There’s always such a choice in Indian restaurants that can become quite confusing if you’re not familiar with the fare. Check with the staff about the menu and then explore from the more familiar like chicken korma and dhal makhani to the more adventurous. Develop your own top ten list; it’s that kind of menu and place.

    Wine
    No alcohol allowed.

    Service
    Attentive.

    Ambience
    Because of the large space, you have to provide the charm and the chatter. So gather a group and add some warmth to the proceedings. It’s a space that would welcome being enhanced.

    And...
    It’s easily accessible, with parking at the door. Perfect picking up a pre-ordered takeaway. (DdeB, October 2012)
