It has a glass enclosed open kitchen concept, where you can watch your food being prepared.
We started off with drinks. My daughter had the Cookies & Cream Milkshake and I had the Lavender Mojito. Both our drinks were tasty and refreshing.
As for the food, we sampled few appetizers from their Chinese menu and also tried many dishes from their Indian menu.
Here’s the list of the dishes that we tried.
Salt & Pepper Mushroom was a mushroom lovers delight. Crisp fried mushrooms were coated with crushed black pepper.
Babycorn Thai Chilli was good, it was not too spicy. My daughter loved it.
After this we tried 2 appetizers and main course from their Indian menu.
Veg Galauti Kebab is a speciality from the city of Lucknow in India. It is made with minced veggies marinated in special spices and then rolled into kebabs and seared on a pan. At Memory Lane, the spices are specially brought from Lucknow. This kebab was excellent and a definite must-try.
Paneer Tikka was made from fresh paneer and it was soft, succulent and flavorful.
- Mixed Vegetables had a medley of veggies cooked with chopped onions and traditional spices. This dish was slightly spicy and very tasty. One of my favorite dishes at the restaurant.
- Shahi Paneer was the only dish that we didn’t like. The flavor of the nuts and seeds was too overpowering.
- Dal Makhani is the most popular North Indian whole lentils curry. It was done well and had a homemade flavor to it.
- Mixed Naan was served along with our curries. It was freshly made and went very well with the curries.
They have very few desserts in their menu. We were recommended to try Banana and Coconut Pancake with vanilla ice cream, honey glazed crisps and topped with Berry purée. If I have to use one word to describe it- then it will be HEAVENLY!
Overall, we had an amazing dining experience. The food, the service and the ambience is good. They also do deliveries and catering. Memory Lane Restaurant is worth visiting.
