It wasn’t necessary to grieve too long.
Their vegetarian options are the most interesting like cheese stuffed spinach balls and mushroom kebab. There are dishes I have not seen at other Indian restaurants in Hobart like Murg Musallam which is the Maharaja house special, chicken cooked in slow fire with onion, tomatoes and spices to form ‘semi dry chicken masala’ garnished with whole egg. Murg E Khaas Patti is the chef’s creation of chicken with mushroom, onion and tomatoes and garnished in special Khaas Patti style. And there’s the Akbari Kofta, marinated chicken mince balls stuffed with cheese, mushrooms, herbs and spices and in the chef’s special gravy.
The second observation is that the serves are equally impressive.
Their prices are comparable to other Indian restaurants in Hobart, however add to it their great selection of dishes and the convenience of being in the heart of the city, these guys are a winner in our book.
Our meals rounded out to about $19 each. That included a main meal each, a mix of five roti and naan and rice to share. Even with the Silver Fox giving it his best go to finish off what the rest of us couldn’t eat, we still had leftovers.
They also offer the ever-popular Thali – their menu states ‘this is how Royals were treated to a special feast!’ Thali comprises of an entrée, three curries, rice, naan, riata and poppadum, $21.90. They have meat and vegie Thali options on their menu.
If you’re in a hurry you can choose up to three curries, rice and naan bread from the bain-marie downstairs, served to you upstairs in the restaurant for $15, or take the same away for $13.
It was so good, the group returned with a tenth person for lunch not long afterwards and have now decided it is our go-to Indian restaurant in Hobart.
