“Congested but good food”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Food was high on spice although we had mentioned less spice while ordering.they replaced one dish with less spice on complaining.Food tasted good.loved the methi matar Paratha.the best Paratha's avlbl in Dubai.
Tables are very closely placed.too near to overhear conversations or bump into the next table while getting in & out.we just waited to finish eating & leave immediately.

“Restaurant with Good Food but Poor Service”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Upon entering the nearly empty restaurant, we were seated immediately at a table for two in the dining room that was subdivided into smaller, more intimate areas. When the waiter arrived we asked to see the wine menu. Since the waiter could not understand our English, we resorted to pointing to the wine we wanted. Since it wasn’t available, we made a few more attempts to order a wine that was in inventory. After two failed attempts, we received a bottle of wine. The poor waiter didn’t have a clue about wine or how to present and serve the wine. The wine list only offered wines with 2010 or younger vintages and were very expensive for what they were.

Ordering our meal was another experience. Because the waiter had a limited understanding of English, my husband had to speak to him in Hindi. In a country where most of the people are expats, I found this odd since English is the de facto common language. The waiter could not explain the menu to me so I could understand the preparation for the dishes. We ordered Dum Methi Murgh (chicken with fenugreek cooked dum style), Chemeen Purichathu (marinated shrimp fried with curry leaves and coconut) and Jeera Rice (plain rice with cumin seeds).

The dishes were very good even though one was served on a chipped plate. The chicken in the Dum Methi Murgh was moist and perfectly cooked, not over done; it was all dark meat, though. The Chemeen Purichathu was prepared in the standard Kerala style and was quite tasty. There was too much oil in the Jeera Rice but I have to admit it was really good. The cuisine, in my opinion, was not the inspired Indian cooking I expected.

The hostess and manager never asked us about the food or our experience at the restaurant. My rating of Khazana is that the food is good (not outstanding) but overrated. The front end of the restaurant operation needs significant training starting with the waiter to the hostess and the manger. Sadly, I was disappointed with this lackluster experience but am glad that I tasted Sanjeev Kapoor’s cuisine.
