I would almost consider this a hideway, yet this is a gem worth your discovery. Chef Abhishek Roy and his wife Lopa sold their notable Atithi Restaurant on Burrard awhile ago, moved outside of the city and recently opened here, it is off the beaten track with the entrance hidden off of the main road and it is all about Roy’s interpretation towards traditional Indian cuisine.

Beetroot & Potato Chickpeas Chaat

Crab Pakora

I started off with the Beetroot & Potato Chickpeas Chaat which was light and flavourful, followed by the beautiful dish of Crab Pakora with mango raita.

Opening the Lamb Biryani

Lamb Biryani

The Lamb Biryani with essence of rosewater baked in a naan covered pot was outstanding and creative in it’s presentation.

Chicken Malai Kebab

Prawn Xacitti with Olive & Rosemary Naan

Tandoori Lamb Chop

Next was the Chicken Malai Kebab with puffed rice; followed by the delicious Prawn Xacitti with Olive & Rosemary Naan which is quite flat and much different than the usual type of naan; the Tandoori Lamb Chop was good, but the chutney with dry fruits stuffed Naan which that was rolled was outstanding.

Neil’s Signature Mango Panna Cotta

Doodh Jalebi

A couple of desserts rounded out the meal, we shared Neil’s Signature Mango Panna Cotta which was made by a 13 year old chef with a passion for making Indian desserts; followed by the in-house made Doodh Jalebi which was much lighter in appearance than what you would usually find in an Indian sweets shop.

The menu features many unique dishes to choose and share, and I can’t wait to return to try more.
