Our hearts beat for North Indian flavours. No matter how rich the dishes are; the satisfaction that we get by treating ourselves to a wholesome heavy meal is just beyond words. We love eating to the point where we cannot eat even one grain of rice anymore. A very celebrated establishment that comes to our mind when we think of a delightful North Indian fare is Punjab Grill. They have never failed to please our taste buds and make us rub our bellies after a hearty meal. Their newest gift to the food scene is Punjab Grill Tappa.
Putting our Indian cuisine on a bounce, they have levelled up their game by adding a perky appeal to their restaurant. Regal interiors with a stroke of quirk mirror to the concept of the menu, Lets now start with the salads, a Watermelon Slider, Crisp Palak and Local Sprouts; it was offbeat and refreshing. They have the section named as Rock n Dhol Chaalats. There is also a Shrimp Chaat which I really wanted to try but was aiming on saving my appetite.
The most underrated part of the meal is the starters; for me these make or break the meal, they like set the mood for the main course and at Tappa the appetizers were the perfect warm up for the main course. Ordering chicken tikka and dahi ke kebab goes without saying, so we had their Trio of Chicken Tikka, they were so generous with the size of the chicken pieces and every mouthful was heavenly. Dahi ke Kebab were molten goodness and what stood out was Tandoori Norwegian Salmon which was excellently done.
Now for the mains; we ordered Dal Punjab Grill which was really good, a Guchchi Methi Malai Matar and oh my god the gravy was so rich and flavourful. The dish whose one spoonful made our eyes shut with pleasure was the Tandoori Lamb Shanks with Beli Ram Jus; with only the jus of the beli ram gravy and nicely done big shanks, it was lethal. Also they have a Haleem Khao Suey which they serve with accompaniments like fried onions, lemon wedges, stuffed dough balls and more. One dish that actually took our breath away was the Chicken Biryani. Just mix the lamb shanks in this biryani and its meal fit for the king.
Continuing the bliss we ordered Jalebi Churros with Rabri for dessert and this is a must try. I mean how creative one could be, salute to the chef for creating this masterpiece. Also the Tappa Mess which was a muddle of rabri falooda, fruits and more was something that you will enjoy most when shared.
It is just a happy diner’s place where everything is adding to the experience of dining. From the interiors to the menu to the table layout, simply everything will add to your experience. The staff is bang on with the service and they make sure that you have the time of your life.
So head to Punjab Grill Tappa and apne taste buds nu tappan do!(Let your tastebuds dance !)
