The inside of the restaurant is very beautiful and doesn't look like your typical indian restaurant, more like the inside of an old stone house that would be attached to a winery or something. We were ushered to a table that was on this sort of stage, which was strange.
I had been looking at the menu online prior to going to there and saw they had Dosa, which I had been wanting to try for ages, so we chose that as our entree.
Mysore Masala Dosa - $11.90
This was a chef's recommendation as well, so I was expecting it to be good, it wasn't. Didn't have much flavour at all and the filling only filled less than half the rice pancake. The accompaniments were pretty tasteless as well. It was my first try of this though, so i will try it somewhere else before I make my decision on Dosas!
Next up we got the Fish Mahkini
Fish Makhini - $17.90
Fillets of ling fish barbequed in Tandoori and simmered in tomato baked, royal sauce with a touch of fresh coriander. This was quite tasty but nothing special.
Gutti Vankai - $15.90
Got to have an eggplant dish usually when we go vego. I hardly ever eat eggplant at home, but when I go out if it's on the menu I have to get it. Gutti Vankai is stuffed whole baby eggplant (Brinjal) in a ground paste of cashew, peanut, sesame and coconut cooked to perfection in Hyderabadi style (popular south Indian dish). This was also good.
We also got some rice which was very pretty with its fried onions on top, as well as the platter of side dishes ($18.90) of which included Papadums, Tomato, Onion and Cucumber Salad, Sweet Mango Chutney, Hot Pickle, Cucumber & Yoghurt Raita, and Lemon Pickle.
I would recommend to go here for the atmosphere and the service and the food, but in that order.
