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.
