A new Pakistani restaurant in Ajman.
We were invited for a bloggers meet by Hyperlinks Media and that sorted our lunch plans for the weekend.
A cozy atmosphere with dim lighting and pops of dark hues with their couches and dining chairs. They have separate cabins for families to dine in privacy.

We started off with Saudi Champagne which was a blend of apple, lemon, mint leaves and sparkling water. We tried it for the first time and loved how refreshing it was.
Chicken Cheese Kebab [AED 36]: A combination that is loved by all, best of both worlds if you say so. The kebabs were perfectly prepared and were succulent, it just required the consistency with the cheese.
Royal Chicken Kebab [AED 36]: A colorful dish that was pleasing to the eyes and got everyone salivated for the next bite. It was a hit amongst everyone with every person trying to get their hand on the last piece. It was a combination of minced chicken, red and green bell peppers with fried brown onions.
Tandoori Chicken Tikka [AED 36]: Boneless chunks of chicken that were well marinated and grilled impeccably.
Chicken Green Tikka [AED 36]: Creamy pieces of chicken in a marination of coriander, yoghurt and cream that gave a light green hue and a great taste.
Malai Chicken Tikka [AED 34]: The classic creamy flavour that was grilled to perfection.
Peshawari Karahi [AED 34]: One of our favorite Pakistani dishes, the tomato based gravy with a naan is one of our comfort meals at times.
Lahori Chicken Handi [AED 34]: Presented in an earthen pot, this was one of the traditional dishes with juicy boneless chicken pieces in a rich cream gravy base.
Breads: We tried the Kalwanji Naan [AED 6], and cheese Naan [AED 12]. Our favourite was the Kalwanji naan which had black seeds and was an excellent partner to the peshwari karahi. The cheese naan needs to be worked on as it tasted like a manakeesh but was loaded with cheese so we got no complaints as such but to match the concept it could be improved.
Chicken Lahori Biryani [AED 30]: Dining in a Pakistani restaurant and not trying their biryani just cannot happen. The aromatic spices with long grains of rices that were perfectly blended with tender chunks of chicken.
The flavors were mild in all the dishes due to the mixed crowd that visits the restaurant. So if you want something on the spicier side, do inform the staff whilst ordering.
Gulab Jamun [AED 10]: We would have preferred the gulab jamun if it was a bit more hot, since the one we had was barely warm losing its charm whilst the sweetness was on the spot.
We ended our meal with a masala chai because no meal is complete without one after having a heavy meal.
The staff was courteous and made sure everything went smoothly.
The prices are reasonable and with Zomato Gold is definitely worth a visit.
We shall come back with our family soon.
