Ten-Second Takeaway

As the name suggests, the restaurant is a miniature version of the famous Embassy in Connaught Place. Although the place does not serve many of the recipes that the original Embassy is famous for, the staff here reassures that the rest taste just the same.

Must Eat

The Tandoori Mushrooms are succulent and spicy {opt for one of the starter platters to get the best of the lot}. Among the Indian main courses, the Rara Gosht is a delight with its soft mutton chunks cooked with keema in rich gravy {and despite how intimidating it looks, the dish is surprisingly easy on the tongue}.

The menu also states the Dal Meat, lamb cooked with lentils, as a signature dish, which we didn’t try but the staff insists you should.

Must Drink

If you wish to avoid the usual mojitos and syrupy mocktails, then the Pina Colada is a good option. The mild sweetness does not interfere with the spice of the main courses and the pineapple makes it refreshing. Besides that, there are the dependable shakes, coffees, and aerated drinks.

What We Loved

The place is smaller than an average cafe, but possesses the aura of a fine dining restaurant. There is also a tiny window allowing you a peek into the kitchen so you can watch your naans being taken fresh out of the tandoor. The staff too is really courteous.  

What Didn’t Impress Us

The washroom is also inconveniently located outside the restaurant and requires a staff member to let you in using a card.

What Is The Best Time To Visit?

The place is ideal for a weekday lunch or dinner when in the area. A meal with the family after a movie there also seems like a good plan.

#LBBTip: Keep in mind that the restaurant is inside the Satyam complex – so you need to enter the Cineplex gates first in order to get to Embassy Mini.
