WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Indian -

The re­laxed and ca­sual north­ern In­dian cui­sine served here mir­rors the exclusive re­sort in which it’s lo­cated in, and it’s well worth the 45-minute drive from Kota Kinabalu.

A good, flavour­ful starter is the rec­om­mended murg ke­bab, a tan­doori chicken drum­stick served with pick­led veg­eta­bles and a dip.

The sig­na­ture ro­gan josh is Kash­miri braised lamb curry done with hints of onion, tomato, gin­ger and gar­lic. Chunky yet ten­der lamb por­tions are well bal­anced in flavour by the spices in the rich sauce. Served at the right tem­per­a­ture, this dish is very close to per­fec­tion.

Size­able lob­ster por­tions served in a creamy onion-tomato sauce and a won­der­ful blend of Madras spices make up the aptly named Lob­ster Madras. The meat is ten­der and moist, and to­gether with the sub­tle and bal­anced com­bi­na­tion of spices make this dish most en­joy­able in­deed. Veg­etable Handi con­sists of a med­ley of veg­eta­bles in­clud­ing cau­li­flower, car­rots, beans, cap­sicum, onion, fresh chilli and gar­lic in a mildly spicy yet flavour­ful gin­ger sauce.

Gar­lic naan and Kan­da­har naan – a sweet, co­conut-filled flat­bread – are great car­bo­hy­drates to go with the dishes.
