Masala Kraft

Rest : Masala Kraft
Meal : Dinner
Date : 23/6/2006
Location :Taj Mahal Hotel, Apollo Bunder,
Company : Mom, Dad, Gautam

Experience - Great restaurant, good ambience, the place is done up well. Although very generic, it is quite a chilled out place to be having dinner. I however dont think the minimalist take on the surrounding works for an Indian eatery

Drink : Bottled Water

Food : The menu isnt expansive, but its thoughtfully chosen to give you a taste of all that you can gather from the cuisine of the North. There is a decent enough selection for vegetarians and they have a tiffin option which we did not try.
We ordered the Peepay wale choley, Dal Makhani, Naans, Kulcha & Pulao. For some reason i had a hankering for bread which is weird.
However the food was superlative, the choley were fantastic, well done, full of taste and the kulcha that came was soft and a perfect accompaniment for the choley.
The Dal Makani seemed thoughfully prepared, again an explosion of tastes, very similar to the choley yet you could very easily tell the difference between the two tastes, subtle but vivid.
The Naan was quite soft and warm rather than the the crispy, hot ones u get at other places. Better Naan then most other places.
The portions werent bad either, three of us at quite easily while my mom nibbled a little. Overall you could easily feed 4 people with this much food.

I am going back there, again sometime very soon.
