Memory Lane has an extensive menu with cuisines ranging from Indian, to Chinese and Indonesian. With lots to choose from we settled for a mix of Indian and Indo-Chinese dishes.
You have a large window where you can watch the chefs in action. The ambiance is cosy with a golden hue around the restaurant.
We visited them for Iftar hosted by Sobia and tried the following:
> Rojali Kabab: This was the highlight of our evening. The kebabs were juicy and delectable. Strips of boneless chicken wrapped with minced mutton and cheese.
> Hakka Noodles: These were your regular noodles which are pretty much available everywhere.
> Fish in Hot Garlic Sauce: The fish (hammour) was cooked to perfection with that melt-in-the-mouth texture. The flavours were bang on too. We just wished the gravy was a little more thicker than what was served.
> Murgh-E-Musallam Dum Biryani: The biryani had a nice touch added with chicken kofta, boiled eggs, and zafran flavor. The rice and chicken were cooked well. Only thing was we found it to be slightly oily for our taste, other than that it was bang on with the flavors.
> Ice-Cream and Gulab Jamun: The ice-cream was the everyday run off the mill vanilla ice cream that was served with chunks of a variety of fresh fruits which we really liked.
A typical gulab jamun that was served warm to us. We wished if there had been some twist added to it that would have set it apart from a gulab jamun you might get at any other place.
We were disappointed with the service. It seemed the priority was completing delivery orders rather than balancing both in-house customers and deliveries.
Being located at the Marina Promenade, the pricing seems to be apt. The average cost would roughly be AED 175 – 200 for two.
