The suave and indomitable Travelling Gourmet TM goes to the Punjab Grill…
MY favourite Indian restaurant. Arguably the best Indian restaurant for fine Indian cuisine in the modern style. Spacious and warm with test tubes of the myriad spices in Indian cuisine decorating the walls. Try the stimulating and unusual spicy Guava Cocktail with Cumin and Chilli!
Naan, Tikka, Barramundi and more…
Tasty grilled Chicken Tikka with aromatic perfumed Truffles that you can smell…as the dish is on its way to you, is outstanding. I love it! Lamb Kofta and tender, moist Barramundi Fish Tikka are superb too. Squeeze some fresh lemon juice on it and enjoy!
I love to savour the dishes with Garlic Yoghurt, Sweet Mango Chutney and Mint Sauce.
Beautiful Butter Chicken!
I find the sexy, luscious Butter Chicken and appetising Dum Biryani simply irresistable. The sauce for the Butter Chicken is just perfect in taste and texture. Enjoy with fluffly, slightly chewy piping hot Naan bread! The Dhal Makhani is also excellent with the lentil seeds cooked until they become mushy.
Dum Biryani from the days of the Moghul Empire is served in a big bowl covered with a chappati. This melange of yummieness has lovely chunks of tasty chicken, plus flavoursome herbed long grain Basmati rice with fragrant spices and caramelized onions. Basmati rice is much more healthy than Jasmine rice due to its lower Glycaemic Index.
A lovely finale is Dessert of Alphonso Mango Kulfi and Lychee Milk Pudding. Kulfi is like the Italian Semifreddo and is akin to ice cream.
Talented Executive Chef Javed and modest GM Ramesh are ever helpful.
