White rice set with Mutton masala
This new restaurant opened in Serangoon Gardens a few months ago and it is slowly attracting the crowds.
The restaurant serves authentic Indian Fish Head Curry and seafood and meat dishes.
It is the first of its kind in this area, and is a great place to dine in.
The ambience of the restaurant is welcoming and it allows diners to relax and enjoy the delectable Indian cuisine
in traditional style - on banana leaves. The interior is tastefully decorated to showcase Indian culture.
From the outside, it looks a little small on space; but one is in for a surprise on entering, because it is actually very spacious and roomy.
Well, as for the food, I am not a Fish Head Curry lover, so we decided to try the meat set meals instead.
The set meals come with either white rice or briyani rice, 2 vegetables and a meat dish.
We tried two different types of mutton dishes - Mutton Masala and Mutton Mysore.
The former comprised mutton chops cooked in a thick gravy and the latter was mutton cubes cooked with a dry gravy.
Both dishes tasted delicious, especially the Mutton Masala.
The Briyani sets also came with Indian pickles or achar - and it went really well with the food.
The additional Fish Cutlet was good as well.
The vegetables were not overcooked and retained their flavour; but my favourite vegetable dish was the
Lady's Finger - fried dry. This dish was made by frying dried lady's fingers and it was absolutely Mmmm!!!
The meals also came with a choice of gravy and Indian soup (raasam), not forgetting, Papadams.
The service was friendly and fast. From the moment we entered the restaurant, the staff were there to see
to our needs. The food was really good value for money as it was reasonably priced and served in generous portions.
The food was not too spicy and did not overuse flavourings - everything was 'natural'!
The taste of cooking reminded us of home-cooked goodness...they were both similar!
The food really has an authentice, traditional flavour to it. That one visit will definitely NOT be my last.
Actually, it wasn't and I was back there again the very next week ;)
I guess nobody can resist gastronomic delights...I can't!
