Coming to the food, I must say it was outstanding.The presentation, the taste, the portions were splendid. The service here is excellent. Our server Ajay made sure we had a great dining experience at the Peppermill Restaurant. The staff here are warm and welcoming. Kiran, Ajay and Chef Sohan Thank you for the wonderful experience.
The wide array of dishes makes it difficult for you to pick the dishes. One should definitely try their signature dishes from the menu.
Our culinary experience began with Peppermill Shikanji which is Lime Juice, honey and roasted cumin on ice. The other drink was Pomegranate Blush with pomegranate, pineapple, orange juice and some cinnamon syrup. We had Tomato Shorba and the Peppermill Lentil Broth for soup. The portion was huge and was delicious. I am generally not a salad eater, but the Pulled Chicken, Plums and Pomelo salad at Peppermill amazed me.
Moving onto the starters, I had the most amazing Prawns which is the Kataifi Prawns. The prawns are wrapped in Vermicelli and deep fried and served with Mango Chilli salsa. The prawns went so well with the dip. Peppermill Chaat Platter is a must try. The presentation of the platter is so good and it has selection of street food from India and a good to share platter. Meat Lover you definitely need to try the Peppermill “Gymkhana” Selection that comes with Malai Tikka, Chicken Tikka, Korma Chaap, Salmon Paneer Tikka, Tangra Prawns and Grilled Potatoes. The platter is huge and can be easily shared by 4 people.
I was then served with a celebration drink which is called as the “Berrylicious”. The drink is good to be shared between 3-4 people and comes in a huge glass pot that has mixed berries, dry ice, cranberry juice and sparkling water topped with cotton candy. The drink is truly berrylicious and is refreshing.
My Main-course was Ghorkha Chicken which is Nepalese style stir-fried chicken with capsicum, spring onion and black pepper. This went well with the Garlic Naan. Nalli Roganjosh was on my list and I must say its to die for. The meat was cooked to perfection and the curry was delightful. I enjoyed this dish with the Naan. Chicken Biryani was the last dish of my main-course. The chicken biryani had a very nice aroma and was delicious.
I couldn’t leave the restaurant without trying their dessert platter which is called the “The Sweet Shop”. The platter has Gulab Jamun, Coconut cream and peppercorn Panacotta and Kesari Rasmalai. My sweet tooth was so satisfied.
