Dera, the elegant Indian restaurant, presents an inviting ambience with its split level design, warm lighting, show kitchen and interactive counter. The menu showcases an array of traditional delicacies from the Punjab with specialities from Amritsar, Lahore and Peshawar yet with a contemporary touch as they are cooked in virgin olive oil. Mobile trolleys serving fresh phulkas (Indian breads), as well as delicious dal-tadka (tempered pulses), add to the enjoyable dining experience. Open only for dinner.

Cosy ambience with good punjabi food

We tried chef special dishes: Pashtuni chicken with Lahori Naan and they were yummy. Pashtuni chicken is a bit too spicy so not for everyone, but do try lahori naan here. For dessert, we had gulab jamun but it was too hot when served; these subtle things about service is what is missing in this... read more

Very good restaurant. Staff quickly recommended we go for the Dera special which essentially was a set menu comprising soup, starters, mains and dessert.

Maybe the best places for Punjabi Food are not in Five Stars,but the Dhabas.,or at home.The food is quite average in taste.,service was a bit tardy and slow.The rotis were chewy,and nans were not crisp.The non -veg -fish and mutton were good,so was the dal.There is nothing that makes you want to come back again.
