Went to Indika, for the first time, for Valentine's day dinner. The pre fixed menu of the day was great. Had enough variation in selection to make both wife and I happy. Started with the nans as appetizer (not the usual papadam that you get in most of the Indian restaurants). Nan was sprinkled with crushed paper and anardana; it gave the nan an excellent special flavor. The Kama Sutra shot which was mix of various fruit juices with hint of black salt was great. The shrimp balchao was tasty; I personally would have not used the banana raita with the shrimp but it was good. The chicken corn mint chat was an innovative recipe and we loved it. The venison biryani was made differently than the usual Indian biryani process. The meat and the rice were in separate layer; the flavors were not all mixed with each other. I liked the variation, my wife was not so thrilled. I guess it is all a question of individual taste. Mango chutney chicken was cooked very well and the flavors were nicely soaked in the meat. I personally would have liked the bone taken out, just a personal preference. Finally, the chocolate ginger fig tart dessert was the recipe I had never tasted before. Very innovative in combining the different flavors. The only issue, the besan (I think it was besan) base layer tasted a little burnt.
The seating is spacious and very inviting. The wine selection was great. Overall a great experience. Will be visiting again, and again, to try out the regular menu entries.
