Put four travel-hungry people together and they head to land of the exotic and the unexplored - Jorhat. Put the afore mentioned hungry travellers together and they head to Taari Di Hatti - not once, but many many times, over and over again. Hence this review isn't the result of a one-time visit, it's more of a chronicle of our the good times at this restaurant!
After a few days of half-cooked and half-heartedly served food at MD's Continental in Jorhat, we chanced upon this lovely restaurant tucked away in a quiet complex on Gar-ali. The first thing that catches your eye as you enter this restaurant is the snazzy decor - rustic dhaba style furniture, juxtaposed with edgy red walls and paintings (and air-conditioning - thank goodness!)
We went in for an early dinner at 7pm and place wasn't full then, but as the evening wore on the restaurant got steadily full - but that didn't hamper the steady flow of food from the kitchen!
The menu was simple and had a delectable mix of the classics and modern fusion, without the complex jargon of chain -restaurant menus.
I'm a vegetarian and generally wary of Punjabi food, what with all the pressure of the butter chickens and the seekh kebabs - but I was pleasantly surprised (and deeply comforted) by the veg kebab platter I started with, while my companions dug into some chicken kebabs. We also indulged in some masala chaas - the best I've had- served in a monstrously large glass!
The paneer in this restaurant is such a huge star, it deserves a special mention. This is the stuff of dreams, you could actually wake up in the middle of the night craving for the delicately made chunks of goodness, lightly lathered with sauces and grilled, and then set to go with the mint chutney and hot dip.
The main course with mughlai biryani (veg for me, on special request), maa ki daal with tandoori roti, garlic stuffed kulcha and raita, saag with mustard and the quintessential murgh dishes - were each so wonderfully balanced, delicately spiced and piping hot when they arrived (very important).
As we sat back and relished each dish, the charming chef and owner - Amninder, was kind enough to check on us and suggested some splendid dessert options - she's also a baker and confectionery specialist! Although we were stuffed to our eyebrows at this point, we still managed to tuck in some brownies and home made chocolates. We also came back later for vanilla and strawberry mousse cakes (that's another story to be told!)
The staff were extremely kind and made sure our plates were full at all times ;)
During our many visits to this restaurant, over the month we were in Jorhat, we always got the best quality food, served with utmost care, cleanliness and hospitality. The ambience and the friendly banter were value additions we just couldn't refuse.
When in Jorhat, visit this delightful restaurant - not just for the fabulous food, but for a memorable culinary experience.
