Royal Ambiance & Food At Khiva : Delicious Diaries Indulgence
Small but elegant place in Phoenix Marketcity Kurla, completely doing justice to the name via its ambiance and menu. It does not just serve Punjabi or Mughlai or North Indian food, rather the complete spectrum of Uzbek, Afghani, Awadhi, Pashtuni food, from the regions ranging from Khiva in Uzbekistan to Afghanistan and ofcourse their assimilation in our own Indian food systems over the centuries. They make their Paneer in house, use specially imported yellow chillies and other exotic ingredients, every dish has an authentic taste, portions are amazing, prices are very reasonable looking at their outstanding quality, the service is very fast and staff is very passionate about the food they are serving as well, non veggies have a lot of options but surprisingly veggies have equal number of options which I didn't expect!
I completely recommend soft and succulent Peshawari Paneer Tikka , spicy delicious Makai Seekh Kebab, astonishing Dal Khiva here that has an intensive 8-hour cooking process, seasonal Meloni Tarkari and spicy Paneer Khurchan with Trikoni Missi Roti and delightful Khameeri Ki Roti. Kebabs are especially good and feel like non-veg kebabs only, hardcore veggies might not like that due to their typical smell, otherwise it is all good and it is all rich food full of calories. Special mention to desserts especially Elaichi Jamun, Zaffrani Angoori Rasmalai and Phirni which tastes like shrikhand or mishti dahi! Must have these all, this is one place to go once a month and then go on a fruit diet for next whole week!
