We visited this restaurant for an early dinner and the place was completely empty, except for the kitchen. The kitchen was hustling and bustling with the chefs prepping for the evening to follow. The restaurant is very easy to locate – in Karama. The staff is very friendly, a little all over the place but alright. The pricing of their dishes are quite reasonable and comes in a sharing quantity.
What we had;
Veg Platter [38AED]: This platter was huge with a mix of different tandoor options. My favourite had to be the paneer of course – the marination was absolutely delicious. The stuffed potato was not that great – too sweet and bland for my liking. Veg seekh kebabs were quite delicious as well. I’d really suggest vegetarians opt for this sharing platter.
Non veg platter: I really loved this one as it had all chicken and each one was delicious! Loved the malai chicken – very creamy and juicy pieces of chicken marinated well. Another really delectable part of the platter had to to be the murg tikka. The spices were really kickin’ in with tender pieces of chicken.
Samosa Chaat [10AED]: One of the best samosa chaat I have had in a bit. It was kicking with flavour and was absolutely chatpata! The samosa was hot with some cold yogurt drizzled on it with their sweet and spicy chutney. Must order for sure!
Lassi [10AED]: The lassi was delicious and not overly sweet or sweet. Complimented the spicy food that we ordered.
Murg Hyderabadi [28AED]: It had been a while since I had some hyderabadi chicken and I am glad I opted for this one. So flavourful and quite spicy – just the way I enjoy it. It paired better with some naan than rice. There were plenty chicken pieces to be found in the curry and the dish would easy suffice for 2 if not 3 people. (They serve all their chicken curries boneless unless you tell them you’d rather have bone in chicken.)
Murg Biryani [38AED]: We had this packed away because I was full by this time – but I can happily say that my family absolutely loved this biryani. I love indulging in occasional biryanis but a lot of the times unfortunately, they are not quite up to the mark. This one was packed with flavours! Also I loved that they had added a generous amount of caramelised onions to the biryani which just automatically made it 10 times yummier. Would definitely suggest you to go for this rice dish.
Paneer Tikka Masala [30AED]: Another really liked dish. However, I did find this one to be a tad bit oily for my liking. Taste and quantity wise, two thumbs up. The paneer tikka masala had very authentic flavours and paired really well with some pudina (mint) naan.
Rasmalai [12AED]: Honestly speaking I don’t think their desserts come up to the standards of their starters and main course but you can definitely give it a try if you’re craving something sweet. I found the rasmalai to be alright – the cardamom did over power the entire dessert.
Final Verdict: I think it is safe to say that dillicious is one of best places to have some wholesome mughlai food at quite a reasonable price. There is plenty seating space and they are opened throughout the afternoon and evening – you must go give this place a try.
