Last week, we had our dinner at a newly opened restaurant in Dubai. The name of this new place is The Vintage Room. This new restaurant offers two kinds of cuisine under one roof- Indian and Italian.
Conveniently located in the Ground Level of Century Plaza in Jumeirah, The Vintage Room is a family friendly restaurant with beautiful setting.
From outside, it looked like an ordinary place, but once we entered, we were stunned by the gorgeous decor. The interiors of the place is decked out in hues of beige and gold. The restaurant is spacious with a private dining space as well.
A grand Piano takes the pride of place in the center of the restaurant. The Vintage Room offers live Piano performances every day by an European pianist.
After being seated in the table of our choice, we immediately ordered our drinks. The two mocktails that we ordered were Mint Coconut Cucumber and Spiced Pomme.
Mint coconut cucumber was a coconut flavored drink infused with mint and cucumber. We didn’t like it, as it was too sweet. Spiced pomme had a Kick of green apple juice spiced with green chilli and a hint of ginger ale. It was oh-so-refreshing.
As it is the holy month of Ramadan, we were also offered a platter of Dates and sliced seasonal Fruits.
Dahi Kachori was crispy and tasty and it was served with chilled yogurt, chutney and sev.
Dahi Ke Kabab made with hung yogurt, onion and garlic was soft, creamy and yummy.
Hara Bhara Kebab was amazing. Spinach and green peas kebabs were stuffed with mango chutney.
Bhutta Methi Palak had a thick spinach gravy with fenugreek, corn, garlic and chillies. We loved this spicy and delicious curry.
The Vegetable Biryani was aromatic and not too spicy. It was served with Garlic Raita.
We also ordered freshly baked wholewheat Roti to go with our meal.
From their Italian section of the menu we ordered Tagliatelle Pesto. The pesto sauce was made with fresh basil and the classic combo of Tagliatelle pasta and pesto sauce was fantastic.
For dessert, we ordered their dessert platter and the platter consisted of Seviyan Kheer, Rasmalai, Gulab Jamun and Red Velvet Kulfi. Each of them were deliciously different, but our favorite was the Red velvet kulfi.
The kulfi was made in-house and flavored with pistachios, cardamom, nuts and red velvet bliss. This scrumptious dessert is a must-try at the restaurant. We absolutely enjoyed it.
Our dining experience at The Vintage Room was good. The food, the service and the atmosphere was great.
P. S. During Ramadan they also offer an Iftar set menu that includes starters, mains and dessert with complimentary dates, fresh fruits and juice for only AED 85 per person.
