A hidden gem offering comforting Indian food.
We went to grab some dinner during the week.
It is a small restaurant tucked away in Barsha Street. The place is good for people around the area to have their lunch and dinners.

We started off the night with a lime soda. It had the right balance between sweet and salt.
Dahi Papadi Chaat [AED 12]: With the temperatures rising, this was such a delight to have. Crisp puris loaded with yogurt were a hit.
Chicken 69 Roll [AED 13]: The name seemed intriguing since it’s usually “Chicken 65” you will find on everyone’s menu. You have the option of choosing the roll to be a chappati or paratha. We had the chappati version, the roll was light and filling at the same time.
Half Tandoori Chicken [AED 24]: The chicken was well cooked, each bite was tender and juicy even after our numerous photos.
Lemon Chicken [AED 26]: Boneless chunks of chicken marinated with lemon zest and garnished with rosemary. A great combination for those who prefer mild spices and we definitely liked it because of the zest.
Mutton Rogan Josh [AED 32]: It is known to be their best seller and now we know why. The meat was cooked to perfection in a rich gravy which is known to be the ultimate comfort food for Indians. We paired the curry with roomali roti and loved the combination.
We loved the concept where the grills and curries are offered along with 2 chappati’s or a serving of jeera rice along with it without any extra cost. This shows the initiative taken towards reasonable pricing for the meals. There is also an option to upgrade the chappati to other breads like roomali roti, naan or paratha at an added cost of AED 2 only.

All the foodies 👭 in #Barsha who want to enjoy some good #Indian food 🥘 then head 🚘 to @picle_restaurant.

Thank you ❤️ for the invite @hyperlinks_media!
Mutton Biryani [AED 38]: Another interesting option, you can choose the meat to be boneless or with bone. The rice was full of flavors and again the meat was so succulent, we are drooling again thinking back to how good it was.
Ras Malai [AED 15]: One of our staple desserts, and this one at Picle did not disappoint. Two pieces of soft balls generously dipped in saffron milk made for a great ending to our dinner.
Seviya Kheer [AED 15]: This is one of the Chef’s specialities, but since we are not fans of kheer we would have a biased opinion so we leave it to the fans of kheer to judge this one.
There is a lot of scope for improvement because even though we were the only diners the sole focus seemed to be on deliveries which put us off. Though credit to the chef who tried to salvage the evening.
The prices are reasonable for whats being offered.
We will be back when craving for some Indian food and around the area.
