We all love to live our life in tashan. Restaurateur Akshay Adya took the word so seriously, he opened a restaurant called Tashan in the ever-busy GK2 market. Read on to find how he succeeded in winning my heart through the food.

Atmosphere

Relaxing ambience, calm lights, comfortable seating and a sprawling bar in one corner, paired with soothing music makes for an ideal place to unwind at.

Food talk

The meal began with chef Jitin Kapur bringing Crispy Roomali with Natkhati Chutney and Roasted Tomato and Garlic Chutney to the table– this was the amuse-bouche.

The salad {gluten-free!} was loaded with cucumber, bell peppers and onions, with a drizzle of olive oil and lime juice. The Ajwaini Paneer Tikka was served with Ajwaini Beetroot Chutney and had a smokey flavour.

The Cheesy Broccoli is the perfect option for cheese lovers. The Tashani Soya Taco however, stood out as the star dish of the evening: The tacos were made with rice batter and tasted just a bit like dosa. Stuffed with minced jerk soya and served with cheese fondue, tomato salsa, sour cream and coconut chutney, it was pure indulgence.

Pair the starters with Tashani Kiwi – a blend of orange juice, pineapple juice, lemon juice and crushed kiwi.

They served a complimentary Jaljeera shot to cleanse the palate before the main course. Next up were the Gobhi and Spinach Bhurji, Paneer Hungama and three different varieties of dal – Ghar Ki Dal, Dal Peshawari and Dal Makhani, along with a basket of assorted breads. The finely-minced gobhi dish was very innovative, the Paneer Hungama was crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, while the dals were reminiscent of something my grandmother used to make.

For dessert, the Bhuni Roti Ka Halwa, and Motichor and Rabri Crepes are both delicious options. The taste and presentation were both great.
