Open only for dinner, this seven-year-old handsomely done up contemporary restaurant of The Leela serves the most sublime flavoursome Nihari Gosht, Nalli Chaanp, Biryani with Burhani Raita and a superb Ulte Tawe ka Paratha too. Chef Surendra Mohan serves food from all the states of India but concentrates on North Indian fare. Ask for his melt-in-the-mouth Galouti Kebab and the succulent Raan-e-Jamavar. Am not a fan of the Mutton Seekh Kebab so the Reshmi Chicken Seekh Kebab is a tasty deviation. Tawa Jhinga or Royal Vepudu, spiced Crab Meat Broth and Nandu Rasam are vibrantly spiced and unerringly cooked. Chicken Chettinad and Alleppey Fish Curry are worth trying too. Vegetarians go for the Palak ke Hussan, Guchhi Makai Mushroom, Mirch ka Salan and Dal-e-Jamavar. Khubani ka Meetha and Phirni make for a great finale. A great destination for celebration, it is also a magnet for a lot of the visiting foreigners. P.S. Check out the 3-course Set Menu (with four starters, four curries and two desserts, it costs Rs. 3250 plus taxes). If you enjoy the Hindi music being played here, ask to buy the specially compiled four-CD set (Rs. 999).
