Ten-Second Takeaway

Slotting itself in a star-hotel category but not over-priced, My Indian Oven’s take on food from our country is the perfect balance between authentic yet unusual.

Chow Down

Paneer, Dum, Samosa Meat

Sip On

The Blisster

Lowdown On Ambience

Chic green, white and golden is the colour theme and we like that’s it’s not forcefully done up in a Mughal style. Just simple table-chair set-up. ‘Let the food do the talking’ is the impression you get, and we appreciate that.

On The Menu

Not straying too far from authentic flavours, Chef Sachin has smartly jazzed up North Indian. No elaborate fusion here. Kick things off with Paneer Dum – a happy marriage of cottage cheese stuffed with apricot, dipped in roast cumin and pepper chutney. Do try the Soya Nimona which is made from bean curd and pea mask stacks. Ingenious and rather tasty! Oh, and sip on The Blisster, a fruity mix of orange, mango and cranberry juice, topped off with grenadine for added tart.

Meat-eaters, pick Char Broiled Scottish salmon without batting an eyelid. Broiled to a perfect pink, it’s then marinated in a lime-chilli-garlic marinade and roasted to give it a smoky flavour. We’re fans! A close second came the Kadak Seekh. Winning more for innovation {it is batter friend chicken sheekh loaded with molten cheese and a green chilli to go}, it could do with some more spice. But then what’s the onion and cilantro chutney on stand-by for?

Great Tuck In

You’re wondering how we had room for more, aren’t you? Well, when it’s delicious lamb and biryani on offer, you try saying no. Order Samosa Meat, a lamb dish reminiscent of the Nihari. Packing a punch with what we best know as garam masala, not only does the meat soak in the spices, but the mini samosas dunked in it give it a fun upgrade. Tamater Murgh is a mild and not-so-sweet sibling of Butter Chicken, and we liked it best with Mirchi Paratha – a refreshing addition to the Indian bread basket alongside Onion and Tulsi Kulcha. Safed Murgh Pulao with a hint of saffron took us to old-school Kashmir. If forced to pick our favourite though, the slow-cooked Dal Urad {tempered by cumin and coriander} wins hands down.

In pursuit of gluttony {why’s it a sin again?}, we loaded up on Dalchini Chocolate Halwa, the usual halwa but mixed with cinnamon and chocolate. And as wonderful as it was, Kulfi Kahlua won our hearts thanks to the spot-on liqueur infusion.

So We’re Thinking…

As it’s a bit dull in terms of atmosphere, we’d go here for the business of eating a great Indian meal. It’s on point for business meetings, and to show off our great culinary culture to those afraid to hit the dhabas.
