This review is for the soft opening of this spot. I will try and update the review once I have had a chance to revisit.
This was a planned visit so I have had a chance to study the menu beforehand.
First off the ambiance, the place has a nice clean open feel. Plenty of seating at the bar as well and I can see that being a popular spot for late night drinks and munching.
We were a group of 4 so ordered a bunch of items
Pakoras. Decent and were nice and hot when served. The chutney on the side was OK as well.
Cauliflower. I did try this dish though not fan of cauliflower I found is to be spiced well.
Chicken Tacos. Prathas were used as taco shells (clever twist on this crowd pleaser) Chicken was OK.
Flat bread. A small portion and again spiced well.
Ismali Curry. Top notch. Complex flavors and thankfully the spices and heat were not held back. I haven't had this curry before but beef randang would be a close comparison. Beef was cooked just right and falling apart.
Makai Curry. A vegetarian curry. Hmm one doesn't get to see this often. It was popular with other diners and they even ended up ordering a second helping. I tried it as well and again kudos on not holding back the spices and heat. Nice and flavourful.
Crispy milk pastry. Hmm this one was not to my liking as the fried pastry overwhelmed all the other ingredients IMO.
The portions are tapas size so I would recommend 3 dishes per person if you are ordering the curry (comes with a bowl of rice)
The cocktail list is interesting and worth a look. I had to order a delerium tremens once I saw it on the menu. Red wine was limited though from what I was told they will be expanding it once their supplies are good.
4 stars (out of 5) and I will be back.
