Kebab Junction at Royal Indian

Qatar is a small country with a lot of restaurants – from small eateries to fine dining, you can find a new restaurant or two opening every day; So much so that sometimes it’s hard to go back to a restaurant to try out other offerings. Being a fan of trying new experiences every time, because hey life is too short to try the same thing over and over again, I always look around for new finds – from food to experiences to destinations.

Having visited The Mall a couple of times, I must say I never really knew this restaurant existed there until one fine day I get an invitation to do a review of Royal Indian. Where was this place? Well to be exact, it is hidden when you are in the Mall but since it is an alfresco dining venue, you can see it from the outside if you really pay attention. More often than not when am visiting a mall, I tend to miss by the outer details as I am excited about what’s inside it. Anyways, that said I was told that this was a normal restaurant nothing too fancy! I entered it, and I go like I wasn’t expecting what I saw at all.

Doesn't this plate look so royal?

Soon after seating, a bowl of pappad, some pickle , and side sauces – in Indian terms what is known as Chutney is placed in front of you.

We ordered our drinks after – Cinderella, and Paradise Island. Flavors weren’t original so we didn’t enjoy it as much. The presentation was great though!

We don’t normally tend to try salads but decided to go for one this time – since we have been trying to get more healthy food into our diet. We went for Jarjeer salad, and we both had to admit that the salad was really delicious. I might go again just to have this salad (It was that good).

From the appetizers, we went for Samosa Chaat – that was a very delectable journey for our taste palate, but, definitely didn’t beat the salads.

Since they had the Kebab Festival going on, we tried a few new flavors of Kebabs rather than the regular ones.

Royal Indian had an offering of some exotic flavors of Kebabs – these left aside the normal Indian spices, and had a flavoring of black olives, lemon and ginger, garlic – just to name a few. I rate it an okay -not really my kind of thing. Maybe they should offer some chutneys alongside with it for people like me who love more spicy food.

We ordered Prawn Malai curry, and Saag Paneer from the Mains. These were not spicy, but really yummy and we paired them along with Garlic Naan. As it is, there were many other kind of Indian breads available – from kulchas to parathas to Naans. So choosing it was a difficult task.

After we ended our meal, a finger bowl was brought in front of us to wash our hands. For those who don’t know, Indian food is most delicious eaten with hand, and that’s how we had our food.

For the sweets, we were informed that the Kulfi was out of stock. So we went for Gulab Jamun, and Ras Malai. Gulab Jamun was a hit, but Ras Malai had room for improvement.

We ended the night with green tea to aid with digestion from all the food.

Overall, what I have to say is that their presentation is great. Taste needs a bit more upgrade, and the prices can be slightly adjusted to a lower end. As with all restaurants – presentation might have you at wow, but I believe the taste of the food served is what keeps people really craving it next time! Serving of each dish is huge though!

For those who are looking for privacy, they have areas that can be completely covered. Since most of the regular customers are Arabs, their spice level has been made closer to accomodate this kind of clientele. If you are looking for less spicy Indian Food, Royal Indian is your go-to place.

My suggestion would be to avoid going there on the weekend as its mostly full, and tend to run out of some items on the menu.

I was invited to try out the experience at Royal Indian. All opinions here are my own, and in no way influenced. Have you been to Royal Indian? What was your experience like? Let me know !

The wind was strong, the water wild, but there was peace as we watched the sun go down.
Peace that only nature could provide with.
And, it was the most relaxing scene to watch.
A beautiful experience for me.

LIMITLESS SKIES
Pushing myself to do better everyday is one thing I have always done for myself.
I have believed that the only limit you have around is dependent on what you place yourself in.
How beautiful is this view? From an excursion taken during my stay in the @sholacrownmunnar

N E W  P H O N E  C O V E R @caseartsI love colors, painting, art, and so many things. I am sure I cant make a list of what I like here because its never ending. I have been following @inkstruckstudio 's beautiful artworks and blog.
She has a free downloadable wallpaper up on her blog every month. Very pretty ones!
And, I fell in love with the one in October like every other work of hers.
When @casearts came to me - (they give you printed mobile cover designs of your choice.)
I had no idea what I wanted as my mobile cover.
And, then when I saw Zakkiya's wallpaper I decided that this wallpaper would look pretty as my phone cover. I loved how it turned out.
Thank you @casearts for this mobile cover.
And, thanks Zakiyya for sharing your beauriful artwork with us every other day.

Who would believe if they saw these pearls crafted to perfection were actually chocolates? Until I had a bite of it and saw it for myself, i was just amazed.
These welcome amenities from @ritzcarltondoha kept me staring at its beauty for a while before I could take a bite out of it. What beauty! Such incredible skills 😍😍

Never done a vlog before but I think its about time you get an insight into my experiences with more than just words.
These were shots I took in the @kandolhu Maldives with absolutely no plans of creating a vlog. However, since I came across a creative videographer @ah.films who put it together brilliantly, I thought this had to come online. I hope you enjoy watching it and let me know your thoughts . 💗💗 .
