Last month on the occasion of Indian Republic Day we visited Shamiana Restaurant in the newest Taj property in town- Taj Jumeirah Lake Towers for dinner to try their special Republic Day set-menu.
Located on the 4th Floor of the luxurious Taj JLT, Shamiana is their heritage restaurant offering authentic Indian cuisine. You can expect all the signature dishes from the world of Taj.
The tastefully done interiors of Shamiana looks elegant, regal and classy. The restaurant also offers al fresco dining area with a stunning view. As it was raining on that day, we chose to dine indoors.
After a round of refreshing glass of Lassi to drink, we were offered a complimentary platter of Papad, Salad, Pickle and Dips.
Our starters were pre-plated and there was an option for veg and non veg set menu. Being vegetarians we went for the veg option.
The starter platter consisted of a flavorful medley of Indian bites like Nagori Aloo, Paneer Tikka and Malai Broccoli. It was served with mint chutney, laccha salad and garlic naan.
Main course was served family-style for sharing. We tried classic dishes like Hyderabadi Vegetable Biryani, Mirch Ka Salan, Lasooni Palak Paneer, Malai Kofta, Aloo Methi and Shamiana’s Black Dal served along with Tandoori Breads and Raita. Each and every dish was cooked to perfection and tasted exquisite.
For dessert we had trio of scrumptious Indian desserts- Ras Malai, Gajar Ka Halwa and Barfi.
Our dining experience at Shamiana was outstanding. If you love Indian food, you have to add Shamiana to your list of must-visit restaurants in Dubai.
