Review: Itihaas by Moti Mahal, Vashi, Navi Mumbai.

Deep down everyone knows that restaurant service is the closest thing one will ever experience to be served as King and Queen. And Itihaas by Moti Mahal makes this experience possible with nothing but royalty in mind.

The level of sophistication given to every detail is just a class apart. Right from the moment you enter the restaurant, you are in for a Royale experience.

We were destined to visit this place being fond of the Moti Mahal franchise over the past many years. We were sure that it was worth the wait as they never cease to please us, be it their decor, food, or their hospitality. And to our surprise it ended up much better than we could ever imagine. Once inside we were quite surprised by the exquisite design of the restaurant. Each and everything, that was a part of the decor was commendable. It was indeed royale in every aspect.

Exif_JPEG_420Much pleased by all this we got ourselves seated in the most comfortable manner. The menu, again something which had to be defined here for it’s sterling look and feel. Quite heavy though with a detailed menu guiding you perfectly. The overwhelming experience till now got our stomachs rumbling, and we were ready with our choice of orders.

First came, every cuisines kindest course, the soup of the day, which was a plain Tamater Shorba, mildly spiced yet rich. Like the famous Ugandan proverb goes: One must judge a woman by the taste of her soup, we were able to judge that we were in for a memorable evening.

The starter that followed the soup was suggested by the staff as it was an all veg night and we were unable to decide from the vast selection. We were served the Bharwaan Tandoori Aaloo, it was grilled potatoes stuffed with cheese and spices. We found the potatoes slightly hard to chew and honestly not sufficient for our spicy palate. The stuffing could’ve been infused with more tang and spice.

The maincourse consisted of Paneer Lababdar, a combination of cottage cheese on a spicy and tangy gravy, along with Roti and Garlic Naans. We don’t regret ordering this. It was a perfectly made rich Paneer gravy with the exact amount of spices. And the naan was made exactly to our request, slightly crispy. Following this we went for the Dum Kesari Biryani and raita, which just swept us off our feet. A true nawabi style Biryani, slow cooked in Dum with the best rice and saffron. The quantity, quality and taste was exceptional.

The decor sure deserves a applaud. According to us it’s one of the best in Navi Mumbai. The service was exemplary. The food was good and last but not the least, when it comes to value for money, one has to pay the price to be royalty, or atleast to be treated as one.

A sneak peak of what's in store this Summer at @antares_goa where @sarahtodd rustles up some lip-smacking grub and some refreshingly new Cocktails.
Opposites definitely attract. Enjoyed this Crisp and hot Malpua topped with creamy and cold Rabri @tajholidayvillage #goa at their Weekend Brunch. Ain't this a match made in heaven???
Objects in the mirror are much much much cuter than they appear! Repost from @keikothedachshund - Just so you know, I just got my front-seat ride with the drivers licence 🐾🐢 Woohoo πŸ‘…
Beer, Buddies & Brunch..Sounds like a perfect Sunday. Throwback to one such Jazz Music Sunday Brunch @driftersbrewingco with @khaipeenejalsa @indieopus @gastrofantasy @thefood_dude @founded_nemo @themumbaiglutton @supriyarajpurkar
We need our motivation on Tuesday rather than a Monday, reasons not just 1.What best but the creamy avocado and hummus on toast @thenutcrackermumbai #bandra .
Juss means a 'meal cooked with love' and it was precisely that when a group of us close friends met up over a vegetarian only unlimited Sindhi thali. The thali comprised of Sindhi Curry, Alu Took, Sai Bhaji,Daran ji Curry, Sanna Pakoda, Chaval, Bhuga Chaval, Bhindi Bassar, Rassewale Alu, Boondi Raita, Papad, Puri, Chapatti, Rose Sharbet and a dessert of our choice. This comforting regional thali is a brainchild of Rohit @thehungrymumbaikar & sure is a super duper hit πŸ‘
Our love for this amazing Indian dessert - The Jalebi is known pretty well in the family and @thechiranjeevlakshman made sure he shared a piece of our love through a picture with us. This is the famous Jalebi from Puruliya district in West Bengal served only in the Shal tree leaf. Dipped in the sweetest of syrup yet retaining its crunch. Shubho Nabo Barsho to everyone as well.
Our "TAMIL NEW YEAR SADHYA" at home today was Rice with Beans Poriyal, Urulai Roast, Manga Curry, Thair Pachchadi, Pal Payasam, Murungakkai Sambhar, & Vadaam. Wishing you all a very Happy Vishu & Baisakhi.
A platefull of Goodness. The Grilled Cottage Steak with fried rice, grilled vegetables and french fries was one of the best we've had @pickleandpint @tungahotels . Apart from being flavourful this meal was a great experience. Pic @shubhamkatariyaphotography
Say 'Hello to the Queen' the most delectable dessert of fried bananas, cinnamon, biscuit crumble, vanilla ice cream, and chunks of juicy strawberries.
