Archive for kashmiri


after a really loooong time, we took off for a relaxed drive cutting through the lively city lighting and attention grabbing neon signs on the eastern express highway from thane towards mulund. this patch is specialised by spaced out eateries like mantra, royal challenge, and a couple of malls. after having attended a friend’s mehendi ceremony, we were kind of full with mithai n snacks n sherbet. but there was apetite for little more.
since there was a meeting with the interior guy again late night, we had an hour to go..
so we found ourselves at maxan’s – at the food court of eternity mall. this is a ‘fine dining’ restaurant as they call themselves.one section is the formal setting – probably that’s where you get the mexican menu as he name of the place suggests. we went to the dhaba part – and… it was a soothing surprise!!
the ambience was very dhaba-ish with low indian sitting and furniture made to look like its straight out of a village home. the old world décor types. walls, structure painted to go with the rustic look. lighting out of cane lamps.
the best part that created all the difference – the live ghazal show and the enchanting tabla.. n they were taking ‘farmaish’ too.. (my personal favourite is hazaaron khwahishen aisi)
we gorged a lot on starters. they have mughlai,punjabi, kashmiri, malvani. and they were tasty too.. helpings were enough for one person one starter, or maybe we were too hungry. anand’s sixth sense that chicken here should be tasted went of well .. looked like.. in the end, we needed fresh lime soda to help digest it all!

my rating : must visit, for all three – food,ambience, music.
