Tried dinner Friday. We arrived at 7:30 and were seated at the last available table. Service was a bit slow, there were three servers though one seemed tied down to a terminal, perhaps something was not working right, that left two to handle a full place.
We got a mango lassi and picked Taj mahal from the three beers that they currently carry. The mango Lassi was very good, tangy with an intence fruity flavor.
Started with a keema naan and sakhat kabab. The keema naan was a flat bread stuffed with ground lamb which they do in their charcoal oven. It was good with the two chutneys that came with it.
The skhat kabab was excellent, I have not seen it at the other Indian places. Essentially it was a spicy gound lamb sausage stuffed with hot melted cheddar and a crisp topping. The flavor and texture were very good.
For dinner we had the Vindaloo Lamb and the Delhi Pista Korma, they do not have sagg paneer on the menu but made a side for us.
The Vindaloo was kind of tame and could do with a bit more heat. The Pista Korma though was my seccond good find last night. Pieces of chicken breast in a creamy pistachio sauce with layers of favors, fennel, cardamom and something else that I could not put my finger on. Very delicate and enjoyable.
The decor though a little bare is quite appealing. Actually looked better in the evening compared to my ealier lunch visits.
Learnt from my server that more stuff is on its way from India to adorn the place and they are also looking for more service staff.
On the whole a good experience,though I think they need more time to work out their service which was gracious in spite of being slow.
Recomend going there on weekdays when they are not swamped.
