Advice: Reservations suggested for large parties, walk-ins welcome.
With its focus on traditional Indian cuisine from the Bombay region, Chef has created a wonderful menu of tasty dishes, I loved the Aloo Tikki– Pan-fried potato cake with chick peas along with the Mixed Grill Tandoori sampler of Seekh kebab, lamb tikka, fish tikka, chicken tikka, and Tandoori prawns.
The refreshing Fresh Lime Soda was a perfect match for the complimentary papadam along with the outstanding smoked Eggplant Bhartha a dish of roasted eggplant, tomato and ginger.
I loved the Chicken Korma, fresh coriander and yogurt, with cashew purée; the breads that I tried from the Garlic Naan to the Lachedar Paratha were perfect for dipping in the sauce. I also had a House Salad and the Peshwari Naan.
The Mix Biryani was another outstanding dish, a combination of meat, spices, nuts and basmati rice and it is one that isn’t on the menu so you should ask the server to make it.
For dessert, I finished off with the Ras Malai and they offer a few others as well.
This is a gem worth your discovery, so head on over to the drive to enjoy some wonderful flavours.
