The word Soma is associated with the Moon, and the colourful and eclectic art (in this large, splendidly lit, high-ceilinged, contemporary restaurant) reflects that influence. So do the hours - it's a dinner-only restaurant. The theatrically-lit tandoor show-kitchen remains the focal point of this off-the-lobby Indian restaurant of the Grand Hyatt. Indian instrumental music serenely lilts in the background. Tandoori, grilled and North Indian fare are offered here. There are many new menu additions like Niza Kebab (Murgh Malai marinated with cheese), Tandoori Jhinga, Khadae Masala Ke Chaamp (marinated tandoor-style lamb ribs), Laseez Pusliya (mutton ribs with Indian spices and brown onion tomato gravy), regional Dum Aloo Bhojpuri (baby potatoes cooked and stuffed with tomato onion gravy), Pindi Chhole (authentic Punjabi-style) and Paneer Patiala (paneer stuffed with cashew nuts and spices; shallow-fried and cooked in tomato onion gravy). Old favourites such as the ever-popular North Indian spiced fare of Sikandri Raan, Ajwaini Pomfret, Rogan Josh Tadka, Sarson Boti and more remain. Check out the Gosht Biryani, Dal Makhni and the Murgh Malai Hara Dhaniya or popular Rauniqi Seekh. Looking for the unusual in desserts? Go for the Paan Ice Cream or the new baked Rasgoulla with a caramelized crust, all garnished with saffron.
