As it was a hot day, we were ushered upstairs with a view of the lake. (And the wires. Lol)
The food was very flavorful and the service, well the waiter tried very hard (he was new and not confident in his abilities)
The issue arose after we left. 4 out of the 5 in our group started feeling nauseated however it could have been because of the heat. Not sure so can’t really blame the restaurant.
All in all everyone left full and the price was reasonable.

We visited this restaurant as it was conveniently located in the lakeside, which was where I was and also because it had a better rating in TripAdvisor than the other restaurants in the locality. We wanted some good Indian food and thus hoping to have some authentic Indian food we entered this restaurant.

The decor was really nice, warm and inviting. We were immediately shown to our table and given the menus. We ordered the Masala Peanut, Dal Tadka which came with chappati, some extra chappati and egg biriyani.

We were served the peanut masala first which was beautifully presented. According to the menu, it contained a lot of spices, ginger, onions, chilly and more. However the only thing we tasted was the peanuts and the sourness. It was too sour thus masking the other flavours. It didn't feel like peanut masala, more like sour peanuts. We told the waiter this and all he did was nod his head and nothing more.

The biriyani, dal and chappati were served next. The biriyani was fine to say the least. Nothing too exciting. The dal however was confusing and bland. Dal tadka is usually spicy and flavourful. This dal tadka just had steamed dal with cream. Yes, you read it right. Cream. There was cream in dal tadka. I don't know if they confused it with dal makhani, but even so, dal makhani is supposed to be black and not yellow.
The chappati was the best thing about the meal. It was really good.

For a place that showcases its indian cuisine, it was a disappointment. The prices also did not do justice to the flavours.

I wouldn't recommend this place if you want authentic indian food.
