Long known for its rich taste and enticing dishes, we’ve found what we need and more at Raj to give our taste buds a tantalizing treat. From delectable appetizers to tempting dishes every dish is passionately prepared for an exquisite dining experience. Located in the lobby of Heliopolis & Towers Hotel, relish in an ambiance of splendor as you savor on a wide array of dishes.
Warmly welcomed by the hospitable team and as we got seated we were instantly greeted by Mango lassi as a welcome drink along with papdum and three different appetizing dips. As we go through the menu to choose our appetizers, we were tempted by too many options. We opted for chicken cubes, very tenderly grilled the Indian way. We also tried fried potato stuffed with creamy butter and cheese. It was crispy on the outside tender on the inside without a single drop of oil which makes the dish very light. The Chef suggested we try Dal Makhani and it turns out to be better than any lentil soup we’ve ever tried before. This buttery soup of black lentils and red kidney beans is extremely tasty that you literally won’t have enough of, especially with Nan garlic bread on the side. Dal Makhani is slowly cooked to the perfect consistency and richness of flavor to savor with every sip.
Moving swiftly to the main course, the menu includes a tempting variety that appeals to all tastes with also a very good share for vegetarians as well. After minutes of thinking and pondering on what to try, we choose Sunehra Jhinga; prawns marinated in lemon and turmeric and for another dish we opted for Butter Chicken tikka soaked in cream enriched tomato sauce. On the side we decided to have biryani rice with vegetables and nuts. The prawns were perfectly seasoned with aromatic ingredients that gave a very lasting taste. As for the butter chicken, the cubes were very tender in a generous amount of rich and thick creamy tomato sauce that we could feel every ingredient in every bit. All the dishes come in generous portions for sharing which is great given the too many items in the menu that you would love to try them all.
Raj positions itself not only as the best destination for everyone seeking genuine Indian dining, but its authenticity has placed it as the perfect spot that hosts Indian national celebrations such as the Diwali. As an experience, we’ve been impressed with everything, from the hospitable service, to the overall ambiance, to the rich menu and definitely the very exquisite food. Now we know where to head to whenever we seek an Indian Fiesta
