For authentic Indian food in an attractive setting, this elegant Indian restaurant makes for a wonderful place to splurge. The food and service are as one would expect from a restaurant operated by the Oberoi chain - excellent. The ornate dining area features authentic Indian furnishings and handsome woodwork detailing. A live vocalist performs pop and Arabic tunes after 9.30p. It's hard to go wrong here, as all the food is delicious. Don't miss the Baingan Bharta (creamy smoked eggplant baked in a clay oven and perfect for dipping fluffy Naan bread in). The Murgh Tikka (succulent and wonderfully spiced chicken kebabs marinated in yoghurt) is always a good pick. There are several fixed meals to sample, and a small but tantalising dessert menu.
Its true what I read the comment put by one of the visitors saying" the waiter/waitress give an unwelcome guster"- Its purly an attitude of those Egyptians who never visited countries like -U.A.E or Muscat or Saudi where Indians respected.
I saw an English couple entering after us - What a surprise the waiteress leavse us and attains the couple. The couple giggled and asked her to take orders from us first- a gentlemen. This is the differance between literate and illitrate.-Please change the attitude and looks. If you want to sucess in any bussiness -each customer is equal to the other.
Fabulous food - better than any restaurant I have eaten in US (many many, mostly in California) and UK (several that i have visited in over the last 10 years). Excellent vegetarian choice. Very authentic taste. Freshly cooked using excellent ingredients. Chef came to meet us before & after dinner on both occasions.
Food was better than Chingari at Hyatt and was half the price.
I am firstly my self i am a owner of several Indian Restaurants Back in the UK. When we arrived the place seemed to be clean, upon further inspection, there were some major signs of unhygienic surroundings, nevertheless the decor was your typical Indian but with hint of egyptian decor.
The restaurant itself is split into two, one part traditional arab food and the other being traditional Indian food.
I was disgusted by the service we received, the hostess she had no manners, we enquired about seating and she just turned with out saying a word, and left returning several minutes later informing us of the time period of wait at hand.
I had a chance to view the menu whilst i was waiting, the menu is very plain, i personally think a bit to bland, but you might disagree. Prices are fair, but I was on a business trip.
I requested to speak to the chef, after huge amounts of persuasion i was allowed to see him, i was very interested in to see where he was from. For me personally the chef has to be authentic otherwise you might as-well by Abdul Salams Curry Paste and cook at home.
As far as i could see the chef was authentic, but the downside, his sue-chef is unexperienced Arab.
The Chef On the other-hand was a traditional Indian Chef, which restored some hope.
When I was seated by the hostess, we had a large party of six, so it was a bit of inconvenience nevertheless, the chairs were your standard chairs, but they also had the sofa chairs which is a bit awkward.
We made the order roughly at half-past eight, we received the starters at quarter past nine, once again we had to entertain ourselves for 45 minutes or so, till our main courses arrived, there was a mix up with orders too, but not too much of a problem.
The dish i recommend would be the murgh makahni
Overall the experience was intresting
This is one of the best Indian restaurants where I have ever dined -- and I lived in India for years. Both the food and the service are excellent and if you like Indian food to be spicy -- as it should -- just ask the waiter to bring it spicy and you will not be disappointed. Everything on the menu is recommended but the Murgh Makhni and Lamb Vindaloo are divine.
