India Palace is not at all a new restaurant but as I keep a rolling list of new spots and try to vary according to cuisine, location and reader requests, I decided to review their yet the latest branch in Abudhabi i.e Dalma Mall. The place is also inviting, beautifully convoluted with red and green colored glass pieces and woodcarvings, the mughal darbaris/guards statues standing at the entrance and the wooden chambers cast their patterns from upper limit to flooring.

There is also a small kiosk of inexpensive Indian Jewellery and souvenirs which surely has kept me engaged while my hubby waited. The most interesting part is they crafted the wax bangles on spot, yes my little girl has bought the handmade bangle. They are also selling inexpensive trinkets and souvenirs and bling items, you may wear them and dine in like royals in the Palace. Restaurant staff is so humble and well aware yet so prompt in suggesting to make your choices easier, they look very welcoming in their royal Indian Avatar and will surely greet you with smile and courtesy. I must say it is one of those few Indian Restaurants where you can find majesty & yet so economical on your pocket, hefty space & serene setting at the same time.

Lets now talk about the main thing, Food.

I loved the dishes we tasted, it included:

BBQ platter which stands out the most in taste and I would surely recommend it, Jhinga (Prawns) was my favorite in the platters. Kebabs and chicken pieces were so tender and yet so full on taste and very well marinated. It came to table moist yet with tandoori crisp, sheathed in Onion rings, yoghurt and Green Chutni. The sizzler sound coming out from the platter just drifted about my senses with the amazing smoky magic of charcoal that is nowhere to be seen as adequate and flavorsome.

Rogan Josh & Butter Chicken: Since I am not a great fan of Rogan Josh I was not keen on having it however I must admit it is something which tastes dissimilar than usual onion-tomato salan/gravy served in different Indian Restaurant under same label. Butter Chicken wins the choice award with its soft and creamy texture and best blend with Romali roti.

Biryani: Oh so delicious and my 2nd favorite in the menu, When I peek under the dough cover, an intense aroma turns my sensory taps on to a full gushing speed. The savory smell of chicken blends with the urban gulp of air of Indian spices.

I love the use of original spices in cooking and am sometimes thwarted when the spice level is bargained, luckily at Indian Palace the Chef was so confident to utilize spices authentically and mentioned to us that he tried to keep spice levels true to the dish rather than to temper them along for the sake of accurate savor. All in all the menu is each speck as refined and packed with Indian close-to-heart dishes. You must try their Mango Lassi, it’s delicious. I should also mention that the cocktail menu looks pretty fancy & innovative. This was the best value meal indeed with a freshly made romali/butter/naan rotis (Indian bread).

For desserts I opted for gulab jaman and rasmalai, Gulab Jaman was so tasty that I can have again and again each time I visit them. I wish to give genuine feedback in terms of presentation, taste etc. hence I will share something I noticed at India Palace which is yet so unique and a good practice. Color-wise I found their biryani and butter paneer not too bright and dark when I enquire into, I was impressed to know that they don’t use artificial coloring at all and have very strict practices for it. I believe one must get to engage with the staff to the level that we did to clarify so many perceptions about food DSC_0212

DSC_0245 kk2 I may sound influenced as I am but all in all India Palace restaurants are no less than a satisfying and reliable option compare to lots of other Indian cuisines. For me, its on my list of places to return, with a famished tummy and with my IPhone and start diggin and clickin.

Special Thanks to Mr. Prashob, Mr. Sateesh, Chef Amit & Chef Javed & to ever smiling Staff of India Palace.

    Love the review. Been to the Garhoud branch and I really dig the decor. Very Indian..just like seated in a palace.
    Also agree to the food color point. I too had raised this question on which they had highlighted that no food coloring is used. Not only that.. they had informed that the spices are blended by themselves rather than using ready made stuff.

    Hope to be lucky!
    Loved, liked and shared ❤
