It was our first time visiting the Michelin Star Chef – Atul Kochar’s restaurant – Rang Mahal and boy we were excited! We were the first to try out their Iftar menu. The menu is inspired by Indian Muslim cuisine and cultural and heritage cities of India.The restaurant is located in JW Marquis Dubai right opposite our favorite Thai restaurant – Tong Thai.
The outlay is similar to Tong Thai but with Indian touches. A lot of orange tones, woodwork, and giant murals. Loved the ambiance!
It was called Shorba and made of Lamb broth and Yakhini infused with cardamom and fennel. Super tasty and healthy!
The starters included 3 types of Grill meat
Zafrani Prawns – Gulf Shrimps in creamy saffron marinade
Chicken Tikka – Marinated in Kashmiri Spices
Raan-E-Sikandar – Slow braised leg of Lamb
It was served with a green chutney. My favorite would be the Prawns! All the 3 grills had distinctive flavors and complimented well with the chutney.
Served on a marble slate, 4 huge portions of the main course flew in. Along with Bowl of Okra, Lamb Biryani, and Lahori kulchas. Suddenly, our table was drowning in food!
Ghost Ka Salan was my favorite out of the lot. The flavors were on spot. The Dal Nizami was excellent as well. The Murg Rizala – chicken cooked in Almond sauce was outstanding with the kulchas. The Biryani was cooked in Awadhi style and we loved it! Overall, extremely satisfied with the main course!
Shahi Umm Ali – A fusion of two biggies. The Hyderabadi favorite Shahi Tukda and Arab favorite – Umm Ali. Topped with ice cream, caramel and a lot of crunches. It was a perfect creation!
Overall, it was one of the best Indian restaurants we’ve tried with the finest food and flavors. Chef Amrish explained the dishes in details which was fascinating. The service was excellent. The staff is well trained and professional. The Iftar menu is priced more than average but it is a complete fine dining experience. I’d highly recommend Rang Mahal!
