Ordered dal tarka, was made with moong dal a den three was no tarka. Ordered paneer Tikka masala and it tasted great but why so much food coloring, wasn't necessary to improve presentation either, it had all the flavor and colors needed.

We just happened to walk past this lovely place and were intrigued to give it a try. Wow! We had Marrakesh Lamb and Beirut Chicken, both of which were beautifully spiced & tender. The ambiance and decor inside is warm with a great eastern feel....More

The food was fantastic and the waiters were observant and polite. I can highly recommend it! You should make dinner reservations though, since it is very popular.

There weren't any children when we were there, perhaps because it was a weekday.

La Mère is tucked away past the old 'Suq Tal' Belt'. Rustic wooden tables blend with Middle Eastern décor, matching the unique theme of two great cuisines - Indian and Middle Eastern. A small, intimate dining area, and flickering candles, give a warm, homely feel. However, the tables are spaced enough that you do not feel cramped. Servers are attentive and knowledgeable on the wide choice available in the menu. Here, our desire is to present a repertoire of authentic dishes, bursting with flavour, certainly a multi-sensory experience. The menu offers a broad selection of starters, allowing you to whet your palate with a Lebanese spiced lamb sausage, or enjoy mussels and chorizo in coconut milk. Mains are similarly varied, giving you a choice of curries, or perhaps king prawns or lamb chops cooked in the tandoor. Our new menu also presents a selection of main dishes with a fusion twist, such a marinated filet of fish wrapped in banana leaf. There is also a good choice of vegetarian, vegan, lactose and gluten free options. Besides we have introduced a menu degustation, an extensive wine list, cocktails and whiskeys and a broad selection of homemade desserts such as chocolate filled samosas with mango and coconut, assorted baklava, pistachio and ricotta briouats with halva ice-cream.
