Excellent food that makes youtheir patron

One of the best places to visit to enjoy delicious authentic food. North west frontier cuisine has always been on top of my mind. The food is rich and smothered yet subtle and succulent. Peshawri served the best Begti fish Tikkas, and the seekh kebabs were tender and the meat was minced to perfection. Another, rather simple spice mix was the "Chaat masala" sprinkled on the raw onion rings, it just woke the pallet up!!

The service was excellent and the waiting staff was ever attentive and also managed to stir up some humor while serving. They even help you to recommend the best of all. I simply love Dal Makhan, breads and Sikandri raan (leg of lamb) as I was recommended by a friend.

Dont eat your fingers

This resto needs no introduction as such, been in the top list for north Indian cuisine for years. They have mastered the art of dal makhani (black dal) . The taste is soo bloody perfect , every time i see the price in their menu i feel its overrated but when I start eating the food all those thoughts just disappear and what remains is a mouth watering finger licking experience (They dont provide spoon and recommend to eat the food with your hands)

Their dal makahni is soo overpowering that other delicacies are not given their due right. Especially Tandoori aloo , this appetizer is soo common in all restaurants , reddish tandoor circular aloos served with onions but when u order the same at peshawari its totally different, their tandoor aloo is fried a bit to give the covering crispiness and yet the stuffing is soo soft that it will melt in your mouth.

I must say, dal makahani is the best no doubt but many others have come close but when it comes to tandoori aloo, peshawari is way ahead.

Only need of improvement is the sitting , most of the seats have no back rest and its highly uncomfortable . one definitely cant relish the food with that kind of sitting. Hope they change that soon

Appaling customer service!!Very poor.

Having lived in Hilton right across the road, me and my mrs decided to try out ITC's peshawri on recommendation of one of my colleague. But ended up returnig back to Hilton disappointed.
First I found their staff were unwelcoming, I mean they didn't really bother to ensure that you get a seat when you enter the restaurant. The lady on the counter asked us to wait for 15 minutes and we did patiently talking about the interiors. However, 10,15,20 & 40 minutes passed and I have been to the entrance almost 3 times and no one bothered to explain whats going on. Every time they came with same quote of "sir 2 mins more ". I lost all patience and decided to head back. Have they ever told me this would take long I would have stayed well away. Customer service at its worst form that's all i can say. I wouldn't ever bother to go there again.

An Authentic place...

Peshawari is a place where they do not follow the appetizer and main course rule. Paneer Kurchan ordered here was soft and tasty. Dal Bukhara is a must have here. And yes, not to forget Garlic Nan which had an exotic taste of garlic. This restaurant follows a tradition of eating Indian meal with hands. Even the people from other countries are told this and yes you see them following the tradition.

Amazing north indian food

Normally five stars are not known for really great food, which you will long to go back for. but this one is an exception. Serves the best north indian food around. and in great quantities. Ideal for a large group so you can try their huge sized naans.And I am sure it will be a delight for non-vegetarians but there is enough choice for vegetarians as well. Would definitely recommend for people looking for north indian food in mumbai.
Small detailed touches: They serve water in copper glasses as it aids digestion. Staff friendly and more than willing to oblige you with factoids like the one i mentioned before

epitome of traditional NWFP dining..

this is one of my favorite places, i take all my overseas associates to peshawari once during their visit to Mumbai. Standard order is Dal Bukhara, Assorted Kebab Platter and Indian Breads.. over aperiod of time, the taste has mellowed, but all my overseas friends who have visited this place swear by it and vow to come back. last time i visited, there was a kebab festival going on, table for 5 costed us around 500 USD but food was totally worth it.. its been months but i still get complimented for that night.

Award winning North West Frontier cuisine.

Recognized as one of the finest Indian restaurants, Peshawri at ITC Maratha, Mumbai enthralls by serving the robust flavors of the North West Frontier cuisine. One early winter evening, we landed at the already buzzing restaurant. Subtle ambience lighting played on walls and floor made of stone, lending an edge of sophistication to Peshawri. Ethnic Bukhara carpets adorned the walls and an open kitchen was active with Chef’s preparing delicacies for the guests. Wooden stools and benches were strewn with colorful cushions. Ochre color crockery was invitingly arranged on the tables and copper pots and urns were suspended from the ceiling. Our host handed over the menu which was painted on a block of wood. Chequered aprons were placed at each table as Peshawri invites you to eat with your hands to thoroughly enjoy the food in an authentic Indian manner. A few larger tables were separated by colorful bead strings to provide privacy, if desired.

The award winning menu serves North West Frontier delicacies like richly spiced kebabs in vegetarian and non vegetarian preparations, dense curries, dals and various tandoor cooked Indian breads. The well stocked bar serves known Indian and International brands of whiskey, Rum, Gin, Vodka, Wines, as well as cocktails, mocktails and juices.

We settled for cosmopolitan, a cocktail made of Vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice and lemon juice which came served in a Martini glass. For starters, we tried the tandoori tiger prawns and burrah kebabs. The prawns were succulent, huge and spiced just right to leave tantalizing flavors of Indian spices on out taste buds. The Burrah kebabs were skillfully cooked to lend a tender and moist taste. Next, we ordered a whole tandoori promfret. A main course in itself, the fish was fresh, marinated perfectly and with a prominent taste of ajwain- an Indian spice. The meal would be incomplete without the world renowned -Dal Bukhara. Cooked overnight in the traditional Bukhara way on the tandoor and finished with tomato, ginger and garlic, the dal was a culinary delight. Light and fluffy assorted Indian breads like rumali roti, paneer kulcha and onion kulcha served as a perfect accompanist to the dal. We left satiated and seduced by the myriad flavors, with a promise to return for the house special dessert- Phirni!

Verdict- Located amidst several known restaurants in ITC Maratha, Peshawari is in a class of its own. Highly skilled chefs follow the art of cooking in clay ovens or tandoor in the traditional style of the Indian North-West Frontier region. The restaurant is a meat eater’s delight but also serves vegetarian starter and main course preparations. Attentive and non intrusive service adds to the delightful dining experience. Recommended for enjoying special occasions, as the restaurant is on the expensive side. Valet parking is available.

Not Really That Good!

Firstly the average meal for two people would be nothing less than 5-7K and not 3K as quoted - it is a misleading number.

Food: Dal Bukhara and their breads are a must try. Other stuff you can find at any other restaurant at say 1/4th the price
Service: Not really upto 5 star standards. Only 2 people did all the serving, taking orders, clearing dishes and bills. For everything you had to raise your hand to get their attention.
Ambience: Was strictly okay, nothing to complain but nothing to rave about either. The chairs can definitely have a back rest though.

Extraordinary

This is my first 5-star rating in the super-expensive restaurant range. Places that need to provide excellent food and service to justify the price. Peshawari does so...and how!

We went there rather serendipitously. Unplanned. We were a party of 8 or 9 and stuck with starters only. My uncle ordered single malts and I had a few beers. The bill was astronomical, but I'll tell you this -- I'd sell a few of my clothes and a few other things if it would allow me to re-visit Peshawari and eat to my heart's content (and more).

We ordered a reasonable number of chicken, prawn, and mutton starters. I didn't do the ordering. I just ate whatever was put in my plate, and every last thing was finger-licking good.

I'll tell you what makes a good kabab - selection of high quality meat, use of tenderiser, almost perfect marination, good temperature handling during the cooking process. It's simple really, ya? They do all those things SO well. It translates into other-worldly kababs.

Ambience, service, seating, plating, yada, blah -- everything is very good, but frankly I was in a trance with the food and didn't care about the other stuff I begin to care about when the food isn't very good.

I get dreams, sometimes, of the jumbo prawn starter. So good. So. Good.

Lip smacking experience!

A visit to Peshawari has now become a regular on our dining calendar. The Dal makhani is an a dish to die for. The experience though is unique for foreigners since no knives or forks are provided here. Eating by hand is subtly encouraged for an optimum Indian dining experience and is still fun. A bottle of beer or wine, the juicy and perfectly cooked rann kebabs, and finally some roti and dal makhani. Provide all types of beers and wines that go well with the North West cuisine. A very satisfying meal. The staff is well mannered and always making appropriate suggestions whilst ordering. Although a bit on the pricier side for many, it is money very well spent. An absolute winner of an experience. The only downside if any, is the lack of any privacy during meals. For a restaurant of this calibre, the tables could have been a little more sparsely laid out.

fantastic for nw frontier cuisine

The best in the city for north Indian in my opinion is the Peshawari. Try the lamb chops for the starter rather leave out the raan. The kaali dal is an absolute winner The atmosphere is casual with bench seating but is fun. The menu though is limited but packs a mighty punch! Worth trying if you like your kebabs!
Expect to pay over 4 k for a meal for 2 sans alcohol.

Superb in almost all aspects

The service was par excellent, that's the word. I had visited on the occasion of a friends birthday party and we were welcomed and escorted to our table. We had ordered Paneer Tikka, Lamb seekh Kebab, Dal Bukhara, Paneer Makhani and Chicken Makhani however we cancelled the last dish on the waiters suggestion. Paneer Tikka was superb, tender and marinated to perfection, roasted to the exact crispness in the coating. The lamb seekh Kebab was tender but lacked juiciness to sum extent. There was an amount of dryness owing to less fat used in the mixture. Dal Bukhara, needless to say, was the highlight and rendered us speechless. Paneer Makhani however had an overdose of tomato flavor that tended to imbalance the flavor and hence the buttery richness could not b felt. Due to a minor problem in the service the 3 of us were all offered complimentary desserts as an apology. The phirni was mesmerizing, with the richness of saffron and the exact quantity of cardamom to lure your taste buds into wanting for more. The ras malai was good but as much less from the point of view of the amount and gulab jamun were small tennis ball sized but juicy and yummy.

Peshawari being a speciality restaurant , we had really high expectations, though the service was excellent, the food was very average, the kebabs were good , succulent, tender, melted in the mouth, which we thoroughly enjoyed, the main course was a disaster and the desserts very average, we were very pleased with the service and its not a bad place to visit once in a while.

Kebabs and more!

I went to this place to eat kebabs and dal bukhara and i must say i came back stuffed!!
The seekh kebabs were real mutton not daal and suya nuggets mixed with mutton. And the daal... i can keep eating that one till i burst! and the lamb chops were soft and succulent and midly spiced. Lapped it all up with a naan... awesome.
Even the deserts were awesome especially the phirni.
Its totally worth it.

Great food...way too expensive!!

You start feeling comfortable as soon as you enter. Very good service. They try to make you comfortable with the most minutest things. We tried the famed burrah kebab for starters , was great but the qauntity was not much, for main course we had the out of the world dal bukhara along with pudina paratha which was really amazing and murgh makhani which was good but like what you would get anywhere else. All non veg starters and main course gravies are priced at around 2000 with rotis at 225. They even charge you 200 bucks for a bottle of water so plan your meal accordingly. However all said, its a good experience having a meal at the best restaurant in the city once in a while.

Overhyped & not worth the money

This was our first visit to Peshawari and we found the food decent, but totally not worth the price. We had Paneer Tikka which was just okay and totally not worth 1750 bucks. I have tasted much better versions of it at other places. We had Dal Bukhara, Tandoori chicken with diff types of Naans. Naans were good, but overall food came with zero spice level which was quite disappointing .I won't rate this food as delicious or tasty.
Drinks and kulfi were good, but again totally not worth the huge bill we got.

Loved it!

This was my first visit to Peshawari, and i dared to try it out on the basis of all the 21 reviews it got. I'm not an Indian food fan, i prefer sabzi roti at home than having it somewhere out. But after dining at this place, i fell in love with the food. We ordered chicken kebab for starters for 2, the chicken was juicy and you could actually taste the flavors of all spices in your mouth unlike other restaurants where you cannot make a difference.Iit was so filling that we hardly had space for the main course, but how could we leave the place without tasting the much talked about daal bukhara. So we finished the starters and didn't order the main course for 45 mins, allowing food to settle down. Next we ordered dal bukhara, one onion kulcha and pudina parantha. Trust me, the dal bukhara was heavenly. in terms of services there was a little bit of confusion as this place was over crowded and packed surprisingly on a Monday evening, but Vijay tried his best to give us good service! On top of all this i had a gift voucher so got a straight 50% off on my total bill, which was the cherry on the cake! 5 +5 stars!

Anything and Everything Said is an understatement

Frankly speaking the best Indian food on offer in Mumbai. Make sure you order wisely or else will end up with a huge bill. Tips: 1. Do not order the 3 foot long Nan, not the best they offer. 2. Order the Raan - leg of lamb 3. Order the Dal bukhara - Black dal in tomato 4. Order the Tandoori prawns if you can afford it Most of all do not order drinks they are a rip off on that. But the food is gordeous, amazin, just perfect

Best Dal Bukhara

Celebrated my birthday dinner here (surprise arranged by the boyfriend). The most amazing indian meal I've ever had! This was my second visit here. We ordered a small non veg platter and 1 portion of the veg seekh kebab for starters (didn't know it would satiate our appetite and leave no room for main course- the portions are THAT huge - we were 4 of us) The kebabs were SUPER ! Despite being full, i knew i couldn't leave this place without having the dal bukhara. So we called for it along with a few rotis (I'd have loved to have the dal with jeera rice, but they don't serve any rice preparation) All i can say about the Dal is that 'it is undoubtedly the BEST Dal bukhara in the world' I'd have given it 4.5 stars (no option for half a star) only because they don't serve rice. Very expensive place so be ready to burn a deep hole in your pocket

Food / service / prices used to be good !

The restaurant caters mainly to hotel guests and visitors from out of India. It has built quite a brand for itself and never really goes empty. When it opened, everything was really good but over the years its standards have dropped and the prices have gone up.

The Dal Bukhara is still as excellent as it was. There are a few other dishes that are good. However, since the restaurant never really faces any competition, the service has become quite mediocre. If given a choice, i would choose the Kababs and Curries at ITC Parel over this one which serves more of a variety and does not give the standard line to enjoy food with your hands !

AWSUMLY DLECIOUS "DAL BUKHARA"

WENT HERE ALMOST 1 1/2 YRS BACK WITH MY AUNT, UNCLE & LITTLE BROTHER ON MY AUNTIES BIRTHDAY. THE FOOD WAS VERY DELICIOUS.

WE ORDERED:-
1. KEBAB PLATTER
2. STUFFED ONION KULCHA
3. DAL BUKHARA
4. FEW MOCKTAILS


LOVED THE AMBIANCE AND THE FOOD. I ALSO LIKED THE TRADITIONAL APPROACH MAINTAINED BY THE STAFF BY NOT PROVIDING ANY SPOONS OR FORK + REQUESTING TO EAT WITH OUR HANDS. I WOULD DEFINITELY WANT TO GO BACK THERE ONCE AGAIN. ESPECIALLY FOR THE DAL BUKHAARA.

Decent but overhyped

Had been here on our aniversary since we had heard about the outstanding quality of Mughlai food they serve. Ordered Paneer Makhani, Dal Bukhara and Naans and Kulchas. The food is fairly tasty with loads of butter and cream (any one could cook such a fare with so much butter). Overall i am not too overwhelmed with the food since i had expected a lot more. The paneer makhani was very ordinary. The quantity though was huge and 2 people would end up wasting a lot of food.

Bestest

I have tried black dal in may be some 1000 odd restaurants across the world and trust me not even a single one comes anywhere close to Dal Bukhara of Peshawari (voted officially as best dal in the world).. order Paneer Khurchan alongside with some Pudina paratha and butter naan or Peshawari naan if you are five people or more.... No price is more for the experience I get at Peshawari

Top notch

Went to the Peshawari at the ITC Grand Maratha Sahar for the umpteenth time. Consistency is the hallmark. The food is unwavering in quality and has been so ever since I can remember.

This restaurant is a clone of the famous Bukhara at the ITC Maurya Sheraton at Delhi. ITC are rather canny operators and have 3 levels for their Indian restaurants. The top of the pile is the Bukhara. The next rung consists of the Dakshin, Peshawari and Dum Pukth. The bottom of the pile is the rather awful and cheaper Kebabs and Kurries [their spelling, not mine]. Don’t go to the Kebabs and Kurries believing you are getting the same quality of food. You are not.

The menu at Peshawari is short. About 6-8 non vegetarian kebabs and an equal number of vegetarian options and rotis. The outstanding Daal Bukhara is the odd man out. That is it. The food is very well seasoned but not at all spicy. Virtually no chilli is used. I have not eaten the vegetarian food so I have no opinion to offer. As far as the non vegetarian kebabs are concerned, they are absolutely top notch. The quality of the produce used is unlike any other restaurant in India. I am talking about Indian meat/fish not the imported New Zealand Lamb etc. You just do not get this quality of produce elsewhere. If you see the size of each kebab you will know what I mean. The Chefs are experts and the high quality produce is just the tool they need. The meats are cooked just right. They are moist on the inside and delightfully charred on the outside.

Do have any of the kebabs. The Mutton Barrah is my favourite and is outstanding. The deep smoky taste, moist interior and high meat to bone ratio is delightful. The Kadak Seekh is a delight. This is a Chicken Seekh Kebab coated with a crisp batter. To wash all this down you must have the Daal Bukhara. This is probably 50% daal and 50% dairy [butter cream] - delicious.

Mind you the prices are totally eye watering. You will not pay less than 1,700/- for a kebab, 700/- for a bowl of Daal and 200/- for a roti. This is very expensive. Portions are large, larger than at any restaurant, but this is still expensive.

Go here for a treat.

Good food, great service!

Went there last week for lunch. Having heard so much about this place, I couldn't wait to try the food. We were greeted nicely and shown to our table. We order the food and I went to wash my hands. I had barely returned to my table and start chatting, the food arrived. Now that was QUICK! Even when we order for more rotis/naan and soft drinks, it arrived just as quickly. The staff was polite and friendly and we were encouraged by the waiter to use our hands to enjoy the food. We had called for 2 portions of the famous dal Bukhara, one paneer dish, naans, rotis, and a few different kind of breads and of course, lassi and soft drinks. The food was delicious, but i wouldn't say its the best I have had so far. The lassi could have been a bit sweeter and colder in my opinion, but I guess thats a personal preference.
The only thing that I didnt like was the seating. They have cushioned stools to sit on and for people with back problems, this is not good. They do have a few sofas with backrest, but they were all taken. Of course the food isn't cheap, but we obviously expected that.
As far as i can remember, the Dal was for Rs.700 and the Paneer dish for Rs.1250 or so. Nan and rotis were for Rs.165. The prices on the menu are inclusive of all taxes, so thats nice. Our total bill for four of us was just shy of 5k (without deserts or starters)
Overall it was a nice experience and we had some good food that satisfied our taste buds.

Pesha - Worry !

Being a regular at this restaurant I remember when the hospitality, food, decor and ambiance used to be nothing less than awesome. However my recent few visits I have sensed an air of arrogance and indifference within the restaurant service - Pesha Worry indeed !

A dinner for two - A Non Veg Platter, Dal Bukhara, 1 Rumali Roti and 1 Onion Kulcha cost us around 3600 bucks - Paisa Worry

Indian food is supposed to be savored with your own hands is the USP of this place, something which no other fine dine promises. The idea is to kick back and relax and enjoy a sumptuous meal, however most of the tables for two are actually stools. How can you relax and enjoy the meal when you are sitting on a small stool with your back hurting ? Something the management might want to Worry about shortly.

The food quality is something that the team should continue to be proud off. Hands down the best kebabs in town, if you want better kebabs then you will have to make a trip all the way to Lucknow (however the trip all the way to Lucknow might still not cost you as much )

Overall experience average, but the food is a saving grace.

Kebabs par excellence

Wonder how it missed my review list. Whenever I want to have delicious kebabs and a great ambience, I come to this place. Went there earlier this evening. A small problem is that they guarantee a table only till 8.00 pm on Saturdays - that means a very early dinner if you dont want to wait.

Anyways - between 2 adults and a kid, we ordered a barrah kebab/ chap (lamb) and murg malai kebab - among the breads - one each of garlic naan, plain naan and roomali roti. Quick and clean service - as always. The kebabs were superb as usual - succulent and juicy.

Total damages - Rs. 3,300. Yes, expensive, but you dont go to Peshawari everyday. A cheaper version of Peshawari is Copper Chimney (Worli), and stick to only the kebabs there.

One of my favorites;

I don't understand when pepole say over hyped and over rated. ITs probably coz your a vegetarian..joking.But on a serious note, this place is known for their non-veg platter (chicken, lamb, fish(on request)), the black daal and raan.its out this world, the meat literally falls of the bone and melts in your mouth. My partner was a pure veg but I converted him into a carni and he agrees that the veg platter is not patch on the non veg platter.

I heard so much about the food at this place so gave it a shot with some clients. The food was average and nothing great. It was just your regular mughlai food at 5 star prices. we ordered sikandari raan - shredded lamb and it was ok. Murgh malai kababs were really good as the chicken was nice and juicy and tender. The butter chicken and bukhara dal were simple and nothing extraordinary. the service is excellent.

I love this restaurant for the food. The dal makhani and the butter chicken will make you go weak on your knees! it's one of the best i've ever had!! The food is mor eimportant than the price. It tastes like HEAVEN !!.. if you order a meal quite enough for four, skipping the desserts , calleing for 2 soups, 4 naans, jeera rice , tandoori chicken, and butter chicken, it will all cost around 3 and a half to 4 K with the membership card.

Excellent Food - Ridiculously Expensive

Two of us headed to Peshawari at ITC Sahar for dinner.
I reached at 10 and over 70% of the restaurant was empty and i was easily accomodated to a larger table. We were too hungry to begin with starters, etc hence directly headed for the main course, also had head about the large portions so wanted to preserve our appetite.

Very basic order - Paneer Makhani, Dal Bukhara and Roomali Roti and an order of Lemon Iced Tea. The meal came in no time and the portion was beyond my expectation. Honestly, its hard for 2 people to order a complete meal and finish it. We were starving and could hardly manage the 2 portions and had a lot of the paneer veg to go.

Paneer Makhani gravy was terrific with the richest and creamiest paneer...a little on the salty side though. Now for the price of this - 1150!!! Based on the price of this dish - am not sure if its worth it. Dal Bhukara was the best which everyone is aware about.
The Roomali was ok.

All in all, a good meal but if one had to revisit the prices - not quite sure. Damage for the above dishes - Rs 2300! Insanely expensive....

I agree its a 5 star fare but I could have got a better or an equally tasteful paneer makhani at Copper Chimney (Worli) for 1/4th the price. Now are the 3 extra quarters worth for the peshawari ambiance, the ITC feel..should it have that big a premium..? I guess thats user defined.

Great Place overall.

This is one of my most favorite restaurants. The food is really good, the staff is genuinely nice and helpful.

The portions at this place are big so min 2 have to go and that to one dish is good enuf. 2 Dishes become too much at times. Its best to go as a group.

Advance reservations are a must as this place is always full.

Weak food, Fantastic Service

Having heard so much about Peshawri, Saturday night was our chance to grab a meal. The restaurant is dimly lit and the backless stools make a long meal uncomfortable.

The decor is a take off on Bukhara down to the tie around napkin and the table cloth. The menu is severely limited, Pesh is a kebab restaurant which means no gravy, no rice preparation.

Veg/Non Veg has 6-8 options including the famed ITC Dal Bukhara. We chose the aloo tandoori, which was potato with dry fruit and stuffing. Bland is the word, absolutely tasteless dish, the pain aggravated by the price tag 1050 for 5 pieces. I got heart burn almost immediately.

The Dal was also not upto the mark. The chaas was ok, The Naan & Roomali was nothing to write home about.

We requested our server to arrange for rice and he was gracious enough to bring it by asap.

Since we didnt finish our potato, our server asked us the problem and then it went all the way to the chef who asked us how he could make us give him another chance at making us happy.

A good ten minute conversation that, ITC really turns on the charm to get you back...

The damage was 1300 for two not including the potato which they were nice enough not to charge us for.

Food is weak, you can head to Dum Pukth for a lot more expansive menu or Kebabs and Kurries for the best Indian food served by the ITC in parel. Although i am sure the non-veg section would have a fairly wide appeal.

Although i dont think you would find better service.

BEST RESTAURANT!

The Place:
It was my friend's Birthday and we decided to go here for dinner but ended up reaching there around 11:45pm. Luckily the place was still open the hostess informed us that they are taking the last order, so we were well informed. As you enter the Hotel the restaurant is easily located on the left past the elevators. It was late enough for us to choose our own table so we decided to sit on the biggest table even though it was only 3 of us that were starving! I believe that the ambience to every place is made up of the interiors/crowd and the mash-up of crowds noise and the music playing, the music was off because it was late but still the restaurant seemed very traditional yet chic.

The Different EXPERIENCE:
Before you begin the meal the waiters tell you:
"Tradition of Peshwari is to enjoy your meal with your hands"
(they dont give you spoons, forks, instead a cloth APRON)
a good and different experience you have to try out...

The Menu / Food:
The menu has very LIMITED number of items on it i would say about 8 main course dish's for Vegetarians and 9 for Non-Vegetarians. The choice on the menu could have been alot more interesting but i still couldnt figure out the reason for the limited menu variety. The Food is EXCELLENT!!! We had the Dal Bukhara, Paneer Makhani and Tandoori Bhanwar (Bread Stuffed with paneer / naan). The quantity was good as well. We also had some good red wine.. dont know the name of the wine but it sure tasted good.

*Do try the Dal Bukhara, i heard its a fact that they cook it for 24 hrs to get the right taste in it. The best dal i have ever had!!!!!!

The Service:
The waiters were very attentive and helpful and very well informed about the menu and the quantity and suggested how much we should order and what we should order, not once did we have an issue with the waiters but then again the restuarant was about to close and there were very few people, dont know how it is when there are alot of people.

Pricing:
Well well i have to say this is one of the most expensive restaurants i have ever eating at in mumbai, not a single dish is below Rs 500 the panee makhani was Rs. 950 !!!!!!! the dal which tasted the best was the cheapest ONLY rs. 500. We ordered the following:

Dal Bukhara: Rs. 500
Paneer Makhani: Rs. 950
Roomali Roti: Rs 200
Tandoori Bhanwar: Rs 200 (THE BEST NAAN I HAVE EVER HAD)

Please keep in mind if anyone has an ITC membership card you can get 33% on your bill if there are more than 2 people, if there are 2 people you can get 50% off on your bill (designed for couples). We also had coupons for the wine

Bottom line this is the best place to have a lavish dinner (along with a discount card
