An Indian legacy living in Dubai and sharing the love of Indian food.
We decided to head for dinner on a weekend.
A royal blue themed restaurant that’s been serving authentic Indian cuisine for decades now. It has a family friendly environment and quite spacious for large groups. Wouldn’t recommend it for a private meal but amongst friends and families it’s a great option!

Drinks: We tried orange juice and ganga jamuna saraswati. The orange juice was fresh but had quite a lot of pulp in it. The ganga jamuna saraswati drink sounded unique with a variety of fruits included it in it, but sadly it ended up being a dull version of the orange juice.
Aloo Tikki [AED 20]: Mashed potatoes batter fried served with a side of fries and mint chutney. The tikkis felt way too oily and slightly under-cooked.
Masala Papad [AED 5]: You have the option to choose between fried and roasted. We decided to go for the roasted version. The papad was crispy and crunchy just the way we like it.
Tandoori Broccoli [AED 38]: We thought this would be a nice twist but alas it was a disappointment with the broccoli being completely under-cooked and missing the mark by a mile.
Mix Platter [AED 39]: It comes with a variety of starters including paneer tikka, mushroom tikka, seekh kebab, hara bhara kebab and grilled pineapple. The paneer tasted good and the best dish out of all. The rest we had a batter texture and seemed to be under-cooked and not fresh either.

Chole Batura one of our staple food amongst the vegetarian options! We loved 💙 the dish @sukhsagarinternational. It had all the right flavors and the texture, but the only thing we would suggest is to reduce the oil used and it will be a 10/10 for us 👭. Thank you @hyperlinks_media for the invite.
Chole Batura [AED 28]: This dish took us back in the memory lane where it used to be our staple food when in India. The soft plump puris and the curry was just right.
Sukh Sagar Special Vegetable [AED 38]: The dish is a combination of two curries, one might say half and half of a savory crepe but instead you get two curries here.
One of them was Malai Kofta and the other Malai Paneer. Now the kofta seemed to be under cooked yet again and the paneer was way to sweet, that it could be passed on towards the dessert section rather than a main course. At least we were not fans of it. So we would not recommend this dish or it could be easily skipped.
Paneer Tikka Masala [AED 32]: This was your regular paneer tikka and tasted average nothing unique as such. It went well along with the naans.
*Our kind suggestion would be to reduce the oil in all the dishes, as you can see a thick layer of it floating around which isn’t an eye pleaser.*
Ras Malai [AED 14]: After being let down by most of the dishes, this dessert truly saved the day. Soft and spongy rasgullas soaked in a delicious malai! This one is a must have.
Angoori Rabri [AED 12]: The rabri was delicious but slightly thin while we expected a thick and creamy texture.
The manager Mr. Rawat made sure we had a nice time. Even being completely packed for a Thursday night, the service was decent and not slowed down which is usally the case, so bonus points for that.
We felt that it was slightly overpriced for what we got.
For the ras malai, we shall be back.
