This is my first post as a blogger; and so I thought what could be better than writing about food first. Me and my friends always like to try out new restaurants, ice cream parlors, frozen yogurt places or may be even state parks with some barbecue and grilling outdoors. We usually Yelp these kinda things and check for 4-5 ‘star’ ratings. (We rate places ourselves too!).
On Wednesday, we decided to go for dinner next day. As usual we ‘yelped’ it. This time the craving was for Indian food. My friend had suggested this place called ‘Indus Grill’ some time ago. It is a recently opened restaurant with 4-star ratings.
Let me tell you about Indus grill — It’s a really small, little place with 6-8 tables (each has two chairs, that’s all!). Also it smells like a typical Indian kitchen full of spices. Mmmm… So we started off with some Beef chapli, Chicken Seekh Kabab, Chicken Tikka. For the main course we ordered the Peshawari Karahi, Ginger Chicken, Mughlai Korma, Chicken Biryani, Veggie Biryani, Gobi Aloo and Bhindi Masala (Not to scare you with this never ending list, but this was for 7 people :P) All of this topped with excellent Indian breads- Chicken Keema Naan, Tandoori Roti and Garlic Naan. When I took my first bite of the food, it was as though I literally went back home. Every dish was as tasty as the other. So the best part about the food -less oil, doesn’t fill you up because of its heaviness. We guys ate continuously without a word for two hours. For dessert we had Gulab Jamun and Firni; which were also very good (Seems like I can’t stop raving about this place).
The people were warm and service was really good. As it’s a small family owned restaurant they serve you with humility and warmth. I enjoyed every bit of my evening with my friends and some really good food.
P.S.: The place is BYOB (Its like a cherry on the cake).
