WHY GO

Flavour­some north In­dian cui­sine in a ma­jes­tic set­ting sets the tone for a fine din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in the city centre fit for a king.

An ad­dic­tive starter with­out be­ing over­whelm­ing would be the palace plat­ter – a non-veg­e­tar­ian se­lec­tion of juicy chicken lol­lipops, crisp murgh samosas, plump Shami ke­babs and tangy murgh chat.

The murgh makhan­wala is one of the chicken spe­cialty dishes here and it tastes ab­so­lutely de­li­cious. It’s the In­dian ver­sion of but­ter chicken with the char­broiled bone­less chicken tikka cooked in a rich creamy sauce of but­ter and mild spices. The lamb ro­gan­josh, or lamb stew fea­tures car­damom, cloves and cumin flavour­ing the ten­der and aro­matic braised lamb chunks. A lovely tone-down to these dishes is the palak pa­neer, cubes of creamy cot­tage cheese and pureed fresh spinach sautéed with freshly ground mild spices and fra­grant herbs. There are var­ied carbs pa­trons can choose from to go with the dishes, rang­ing from bread, naan, pitas to rice, with the saf­fron rice be­ing a pop­u­lar choice.

If you’re in­clined to end a spice-and-herb-heavy meal on a sweet note, the sig­na­ture rose kulfi is an aro­matic and re­fresh­ing op­tion.
