Experience the culture and cuisine of Delhi in Karama!
On a sunny saturday afternoon we decided to satisfy our Indian food craving by grabbing our lunch at Dillicious.
With everyone being gram obsessed, Dillicious has the perfect décor to get those insta shots with bright colored seating or the classic truck prop. A great place to dine with friends and family, there is enough space to accommodate large gatherings as well as a small group. They have a large glass for the kitchen where you can see your food being prepared.
You have the classic icon of Delhi, the India Gate and Red Fort as artwork, making it nostalgic for everyone who resides from Delhi. You have the Bollywood and Punjabi music playing in the background to complete the whole desi vibes of the place.

The menu is quite quirky and has endless of options, so it might take you a while to figure out what do you actually want to try.
Drinks: We began with the kiwi mojito and orange ice tea. Both were refreshing and perfect to beat the heat.
Samosa Chaat [AED 14]: If its Indian food on the table, one just can’t begin without indulging in some chaat. It came beautifully presented in an upside-down umbrella dish. It was crisp, had the right texture and the perfect balance between sweet and spice making it taste delicious just as their name suggest.
Keema Pav [AED 17]: A street side favorite of ours. The meat was cooked well and wasn’t too oily. Again, points for the presentation making it seem like an upscale dish with the same flavors.
Kukkad Wings [AED 32]: A bestseller and highly recommended as well. The wings were cooked to perfection and were presented on a sizzler we could not have asked for a better combination. The meat was well marinated, and the meat just fell off the bone. It was so succulent that we are drooling right now.
Nawabi Seekh Kebab [AED 32]: Another meaty option was this flavorful juicy mutton kebabs paired with mint chutney. For all those meat lovers this is another great option for a starter.
Soya Malai Chaap [AED 28]: The dish sounded interesting and we could not resist ourselves from trying it. A good portion of soya with a cashew based marination that was grilled to perfection.
The presentation is top notch for all the dishes.

If the clock 🕰 has struck one and the mood is set for delish 🤤 #Indian cuisine then do try out @dilliciousthefoodcapital that prides on offering the #Authentic North Indian dishes. Featuring the Rara Gosht [AED 36], a rich gravy with tender meat paired with soft buttery naan made a great combination for a hearty #lunch!
Rara Gosht [AED 36]: One of the best sellers, and now we know why, tender pieces of meat cooked along with minced meat which made it stand out from the regular mutton curries served elsewhere.
Murgh Hyderabadi [AED 32]: Next we opted for a chicken dish. We were served with juicy pieces of chicken prepared in a brown gravy. It went well along with the garlic naans.
Paan Kulfi [AED 14]: They have quite a variety of flavors, we wanted to try the pistachio kulfi but since it was unavailable we went for paan flavour instead, and it didn’t disappoint, the flavour wasn’t overpowering and had the right amount of sweetness to it.
Ras Malai [AED 14]: Our staple and favorite Indian dessert. We ended our meal on a sweet note with this one. It was soft like a pillow and just melted in your mouth, still thinking about them. Yumm!
The servers were quick on their feet and made sure we had a great experience.
The prices are reasonable for the portions and quality being offered. They are also available on Zomato Gold making it a better deal.
We will come for another round of the kukkad wings and try more dishes next time.
