Indian Summer is a classy looking Indian restaurant tucked in the Karama area behind Post office.They have a very spacious dining area with separate party hall too..It is quite a big empire of restaurant chain with 9 restaurants in Saudi Arabia and this is the first in Dubai and more coming soon.I got to try out the menu and was very exultant with the dishes they had.
We started with the drinks and they gave us the saudi champagne which is a combination of sprite,apple juice etc with fresh pieces of fruits.An awesome one to start with.A very cooling one indeed.
Another innovative dish was the crispy romali roti with masala on top.It was going well with the mint chutney.
Next came the various starters.
In the vegetarian section we got to try the Zaffrani aloo gobi which is cauliflower and roasted baby potato which is well marinated in saffron and other spices and the dish was finger licking good..In the chicken starters we had the chicken pahadi tikka which is marinated in a mint based masala and cooked in clay oven.A must try at Indian Summer.We finished it in seconds.Our next starter was mutton seekh kabab which is quite normal and nothing bad to comment about.
Moving on to our main course,we got to try their special chicken biryani cooked in the traditional way and arrived in clay pot.The Biryani was too good filled with flavours and chicken was cooked to perfection.It was piping hot when it was served.
A combination of various naans such as plain,butter and garlic naan were served to us.Among chicken dishes ,we had Kadhai chicken and Chicken Handi.But I will vote for Kadhai chicken if I have to choose one of them.Loved the gravy rich in Indian spicy masala.
Among seafood main course,we got to try the Fish tawa masala.Small cubes of boneless fish which was cooked in a tomato and onion based gravy.Extremely good and going well with naans too.
After our amazing feast,we had our desserts.Sizzling brownie is the most wanted dish on the menu and we also had our hands on it.It was on spot.Hot brownie and chocolate syrup well complemented the ice cream.
The Rasmalai is another must try among desserts.It was melting in our mouth and one of the best i have had.
They do have chinese dishes too in the menu and next time will definitely try out.I recommend everyone to give it a try and enjoy the food in a great ambience.
