Memory Lane has a unique ambiance where plants are growing on a wall which also separates the kitchen and the dining area. The interiors of this place are very well designed and the restaurant is located in Dubai Marina Promenade. Memory Lane serves Indian food and Indo-Chinese as well.
The menu is very extensive and large which may or may not be a bad thing…You decide! We started off with the soups. Dubaigirl got herself a Hot and Sour mix seafood while I enjoyed the Chicken Tom Yum. Both were good in taste and texture.
I got myself a Very Berry Mojito- Cranberry muddled with green apple, mint and lemon and Exotic sunset for Dubaigirl which was cranberry blended with mango and passion fruit. The jar was larger than usual!
We dined in along with the owners of the restaurant so we got excellent recommendations.
Our first starter was the Chicken Steamed Momos and the vegetarian momos. It had good filling and a sauce to go with it.
I often don’t see Galauti Kabab in regular Indian restaurants so I was glad to see it on the menu and had to order the Mutton Kababs. It was excellent and would melt in your mouth as it is supposed to be.
Something new we got to try was the Dragon Chicken Roll with Chocolate Sauce. They tasted very different from the usual spring rolls. Not only were they bite-sized, but the sheet was thicker and soft. They were drizzled with chocolate sauce which surprisingly balanced out the flavors and enhanced the taste. But they had become soggy by the time we finished taking photos. I would prefer these wrapped in crispy sheets instead.
Tofu Thai Chilli was delicious. The quality of tofu has a major role to play when it comes to taste and the Tofu here was of superior quality. It tasted amazing with the sauce it was prepared in.
Butter Chicken was not the sweet kind! It was spicy and had a thick gravy just the way we like it. The assorted bread basket is a must to try all the different options.
Paneer Maharaja was another interesting vegetarian dish that we tried. The melt in your mouth kinda texture of the Paneer (Cottage Cheese) was remarkable. It tasted very creamy and flavorful. The paneer was sandwiched in another cheese.
Teppanyaki Noodles with prawns were a little spicy and had a lot of flavor to them, just as you would expect at a good Indo-Chinese Restaurant.
Chocolate cake with Ice cream, berry sauce, and pomegranate – Although they don’t have desserts on the Menu as yet, but they had arranged this one for us. We felt really humbled by their hospitality. A perfect end to a heavenly feast.
Memory lane was born out of a family’s desire to serve good food and indeed they did justice to the quality and service. Do try it out for indo-Chinese and the Indian food! We did have a good time.
