Review: Kebab Korner, Intercontinental Marine Drive

Kebab Korner has been one of my favourite restaurants for Indian food and on my recent visit here, I was so delighted that it still maintains the standards even after all these years.
Dropped by on Saturday night after making prior reservations. We were in for a surprise, there were ghazal singers performing live and they had set the atmosphere for a perfect dinner.

With a gorgeous view of Marine Drive and soft melodious ghazals playing in the backdrop, we started to place our order. We ordered for – the Butter Garlic Tandoori Jhinga, perfectly cooked tiger prawns in lots of butter, really yummy, the Murgh Afghani: succulent pieces of chicken breast cooked in cream and yellow spices, this one is a must try, the Murgh Kakori Kebab – minced chicken served like seekh, every bite of this melts in the mouth, so so good! We also tried the Tandoor Lamb Chops – again, cooked to perfection with a smoked flavour. For mains, they recommended the biryanis since they currently have a biryani festival going on. We tried the Murgh Sufiyani Biryani which came accompanied with dal makhani, raita and saalan, a very big portion so get ready to enter foodcoma!

For desserts we tried the Gulkand Panacotta, something different, flavoured panacotta topped with a dollop of gulkand, a great option for Paan lovers. On our way out, we were offered paan as well, alongwith candies, which were stacked in huge sacks by the entrance. So much fun!

Our meal was an absolute meat feast and we are looking forward to going back here with friends and family soon. A special mention to the amazing service, well informed, polite, prompt and very helpful.
