Time Out Says

Dalchini has a wonderful air of calm from the delicate lighting, aquamarine walls and the lotus flower-themed arrangement of serviettes. The space is cosy and intimate for a lively dinner without feeling cavernous.

The lamb chops are tender and juicy with a lovely hint of spice that really elevates the flavour. The pea purée balances the dish well. But with barely three pieces for QR115, we’re not too pleased with the portion size.   

Nothing is safe from the most fashionable of superfoods, kale. In this version of Indian street food patta chaat, kale makes an appearance with the addition of fresh pomegranate and spinach tempura pieces.  

The Kerala madan chicken is a beautiful plate of thinly sliced roast chicken breast atop a generous bed of curry, sprinkled with crispy onion and watercress. It’s a whirlwind of sweet and sour notes from the finely diced onions to the hints of coconut and the bite from the curry leaves to the heat of mustard seeds.

Our something sweet is the eggless rose petal and saffron malai kulfi. It’s plated like an impressionist masterpiece and looks too beautiful to eat but we’re just here doing our jobs. It’s creamy, lush and fragrant. The saffron is whisker thin and the sprinkling of pistachio nuts and basil seeds adds a nice crunch to the soft pillows of kulfi.

The service is extremely attentive. Granted, it’s not the cheapest Indian meal in town but it definitely offers something a little more different and exciting than the usual fare.
