Ohri's Tansen is one such theme-based fine dining restaurant where food united with Sufi & art. Tansen is all about providing the patrons with a royal grandeur dining experience. As you enter, there is a pathway with huge pillars on both sides that leads you to the seating area. Moreover, there is a special place for musicians who sing ghazals. Even the service staff at Tansen are dressed like khansamah of courts in the earlier dynasties. Ohris Tansen is located in the Ohris Jalavihar campus on the Necklace road with proximity to Khairatabad MMTS. We happened to visit this place for lunch on a weekday and this being my first visit to Tansen, I was totally excited and looking forward to having a great experience.
We started off the fare with 'Marag' which is a yoghurt-based Hyderabadi lamb soup, served with bread was the right start we were looking for, the lamb chunks were tender, succulent and almost fell apart. Moreover, ghee and cream gave the rich and fragrantly flavorful taste.
From the appetizers, we got Dahi ke Kebab, Veg Cheese Kurkure, Lahori Murg Tikka. Dahi ke kebab was deep-fried pieces stuffed with hung curd & paneer which is surely a popular pick. A few more to add up were Jhinga E Tinka, Dum Machi Patrawali, Mutton Shikampuri & Paneer Dum Roll Mutton shikampuri swept the show as the tender mashed mutton pieces completed got mixed when consumed.
Even the Paneer dum roll which had shallow-fried rolled paneer stuffed with veggies and cheese tasted really good and is another recommended pick from the menu here. Dum Patravali Machi had steamed fish Wrapped in banana leaf tasted good as well.
Moving onto the mains, we got Mahi Kaliya, Behmati Murg, Jhinga lebabdar & Mutton Rogan Josh, the rogan josh was tasted apt in terms of flavours & texture, well-balanced going well with assorted varieties of bread from 'Roti ki Tokri'. Even the Jhinga Lebabdar tasted nice as it was a creamy rich prawn’s preparation, sautéed in rich tomato gravy.
Winding up the fare with desserts, we got Phirni, Baked Gulab Jamun & Jauzi Halwa; clearly, Jauzi Halwa was the winner amongst the desserts as all the components like milk, ghee, sugar, saffron, jacuzzi were clearly distinct & is surely a recommended dessert from the menu here at Tansen.
Overall, Tansen is a place wherein one can experience the amalgamation of perfectly cooked Mughlai cuisine clubbed with dazzling lights, with an ambience that will surely win your heart.
