This heavy hitter comes out swinging, armed with Vineet Bhatia at its helm, the only Indian chef in the world with two Michelin Stars. It’s modern Indian food, cutting out the oil and grease that for most people springs to mind when it comes to Indian, replacing these with stunning flavours and colours. Offering food from every region of India, come for the food but stay for the vast and astounding tea selection, each pot served with its own timer to help you steep to perfection. The menu is split by region, which can make it a small slog to get through, but plough through and the food is worth it. The butter chicken is so good we practically licked the plate, and even the rice is fragrant and delicious. They also offer a variety of naan breads (we like the one stuffed with cheese), as well as hearty vegetarian options. It’s truly in a league of its own.

I with my family had visited on 5 November 2014.The taste is good but quantity per plate does not justify the Unit price @ QAR 66 of plate of Butter chicken with Makhani Gravy and Murgh Kadhai.

Bedisdes,your waiter offered me drinking water @ QAR 22 which is unfair. You should make alternative water available @ QAR 6 - 10 per large bottle.

Please note that your speciality is food and not water!!!

Therefore as an Indian I would recommend to increase the quantity of food per plate and make drinking water available @ above mentioned price so that we become your loyal customers.
