Simple chapati with baingan bharta. In English, roasted eggplants with onions, tomatoes, herbs and spices. En français, aubergine rôtie avec des oignions , des tomates et des épices. All eaten up happily by the little one!
We visited this restaurant as a suggestion from a friend and to be honest, it's very easy to see why it was recommended!
It's located about 2 minutes walk away from the mailbox so won't be too hard to spot. As soon as you walk in, there's a very unique style which is sort of funky and rather well set out.
As it was our first time at the restaurant, the gentleman taking our order was happily to explain the menu (promise we can read) and also made recommendations on what to order which we adhered to.
We ordered drinks first (mango lassi) which came promptly however left something to be desired. Although I think this is probably due to me being spoilt with quality of desi mango lassis... In no time, the food we had ordered arrived. We had ordered cheese nans along with butter chicken and railway cabin lamb.
The meat was well cooked and very tasty. The lamb was very tender and sort of just peeled off. The chicken I felt was slightly less well cooked but it the waste was still very good, it wasn't saturated with coconut thankfully like many other restaurants have their butter chickens.
The portion size was good although a little pricey. However considering the location, the price is understandable. It is definitely worth a visit, and I will be visiting again.
Our master blender grew up on the banks of the River Brahmaputra, appreciating the taste of fine Assam teas from a young age. To this day, he evaluates hundreds of blends to ensure you are getting the absolute best.
Junior had this complaint, somewhat justified, that north-indian thaali meal served in restaurants is quite predictable. And, not everything in that Thaali is to his taste. So I promised him that on some weekend I'd prepare him a Thaali at home, which would be different from what we take at restaurants, and everything in that would be to his taste. This home made Thaali meal has (from clockwork direction) Aaloo Ka Raita having mint and Cilantro - other than boiled potatoes, Punjabi Kadhi Pakode, Yellow Daal Tadka, Green Salad having Spring Onions, Radish, Cucumber, Star fruit, Tomatoes, Carrots etc, Mint Cilantro Green Chutney, Aaloo Gobhi Masala at center and Lachchha Paranthe cooked on Gas Oven Tandoor at home. Papad is not visible in this Thaali and readymade spongy Rasgulla were served as dessert.
I was as keen as mustard to visit the "Hotel Shivendra"
My supposition was all false, when I really observed it was very sufficiently ample to provide food for 200+ Foodie at a go (which incorporates family area). On Ambience: As I was not going by alongside my family (any female), I was advised to possess the Non-Family segment.
In Non Family section, you don't have the benefit to possess a whole table and you can expect anybody joining your table unless you are the full house (same as Kaveri Wagholi). On Menu: dining choices have a Variety of cuisine with value ranges for both, Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian.
I requested Chicken thali (Spl.), which was served with (Bhakri, Chicken Masala, Boil Egg, Signature Gravy/Rassa, Sukkat chutni, Chicken Aalni and Rice). Out of this Bhakri, Gravy/Rassa is unlimited.
On Taste: Overall the sustenance appears to taste good, however hard to state that it is kolapuri style. Gravy/Rassa shading and flavor to some degree with Hotel Kaveri.
Rating: 3.5/5 , which incorporates Service, Ambience, Taste, and Value for Money.
Others: Parking is abundant, Bottle water is in-house brand (25rs) along with Updated GST charging :). They do accept cards.
Getting ready to head back home to England very soon, so I'm making the most of cooking for my family in Punjab! Lunch today was egg and peas bhuaji, aloo gobi, plain paratha's, homemade mango pickle and sultana and almond kheer made by my uncle! My uncle is a legend at making kheer and is the first thing he'll make when we arrive here! He cooks it slowly and then chilled in the fridge! Today was most certainly a cheat day!
