WHY GO

With the owner of the restau­rant com­ing from a fam­ily that served as royal chefs to the Nawabs of Awadh for gen­er­a­tions, you can be sure that the North­ern In­dian cui­sine served here is wor­thy of roy­alty.

Qureshi takes pride in cel­e­brat­ing age-old tra­di­tional cook­ing styles, with em­pha­sis on the ‘tan­door’ and ‘dum’. The menu of­fers an ex­ten­sive ar­ray of choices, from ke­babs and tan­door meats to briyani and breads. For briyani, the murgh Bom­bay bohri briyani is a beau­ti­ful choice as it is cooked to an aro­matic per­fec­tion with ori­en­tal spices, chicken and pota­toes. The aloo ghobi serves up to ex­pec­ta­tions with pieces of cau­li­flower and pota­toes cooked in a rich and tangy masala of onion and toma­toes; great with rice or bread.

Lovers of seafood won’t go wrong with the jhinga dum masala as fresh prawns are cooked in a flavour­ful med­ley of onions and toma­toes. The Goan fish curry is rather dif­fer­ent from the cur­ries we’re used to lo­cally with its light­weight silky tex­ture hav­ing a ta­marind base and lightly spiced with Goan herbs and co­conut milk.

End the hearty, spicy meal with a re­fresh­ing car­rot halwa with pis­ta­chio kulfi.
