Had a sudden mad craving for some scintillating Kashmiri food so decided to pick this restaurant. The name clearly doesn’t match very well with the cuisine that they offer, but the high ratings on zomato drove me to give it a shot.
RoadRomeo? Kashmiri? Umm okay!
However the food is quite a big deal here, no kidding!
Ambience: the restaurant is humbly made with no unnecessary whims and fancies. Pretty to the point, bold coloured interiors and spread across two floors. Sitting is comfortable and tables are decently spaced out.
Service: The servers are courteous and food arrived in reasonable time.
Food: We were served welcome kiwi shots on arrival, sweet touch but I didn’t like them too much.
we were two people and we ordered the huge wazwan non vegetarian platter which is easily good for 4 people.
It consisted of a huge variety of meaty, chicken and mutton Kashmiri delicacies served on steamed rice in a humongous copper thali. Very rustic and highly suggested for carnivore gluttons like myself!
Mutton Rogan Josh was extremely tender, succulent and a crazy flavour bomb!
Chicken rista is minced chicken balls in aromatic saffron gravy, full of Indian spices and goodness.
Seekh kebabs were throughly flavoured with Indian aromatics, beautiful on the palate.
Goshtaba is pounded minced mutton balls in a yogurt based cream sauce. These were creamy, Rich but subtlety flavoured. Delicious.
Mirchi korma is red chilli spiced mutton gravely simmered in valley spices. This was my absolute favourite. The mutton was immensely tender and melting in the mouth, paired stunningly with the steamed rice.
There was a variety of paneer in the platter which bland and odd tasting. I think I should just steer clear of vegetarian food.
The platter is the perfect one dish to order for anyone who wishes to indulge in pure Kashmiri flavours and gives you a through valley experience. The quantity Is huge and the fact that you can all dive into a rustic copper thali and hog is pretty fun!
Cost/ person : Rs 1200
Will I visit again? Yes.
