Moti Mahal Delux Viman Nagar, Pune

Only hype, nothing out of the Ordinary !

Rating – 2.5/5

Well I heard so much about this place and finally decided to order through a third party food ordering site and they had an amazing Eid offer going on and I took full advantage and placed an order for a half Tandoori chicken and Mutton Dum Biryani.

What followed was a disappointment of sorts and experience was just about average at best.

Half Tandoori Chicken – what came in the delivery must have been one malnourished chicken (four small pieces) as the fleshy portion was much less than I expected and the marination was just about alright. Chicken itself was tender and the only saving grace here.

Mutton Dum Biryani – The Biryani didn’t have any Dum at all, it was a preparation devoid of any spices and was mostly bland and dry. It’s a cardinal sin for the Biryani to be dry and it’s fairly irrevocable from that point onwards. The mutton pieces were all the fatty ones and it was hard to find a good chunk of meat within the Biryani.

Overall the Biryani was one of the most ordinary ones I have had in a while and that was the deal breaker for me.

Since we had ordered online and through an offer we got all this for 208 bucks only, had we got this for its original price of around 500 bucks it would have been a catastrophic evening but thankfully it wasn’t 🙂

Ordered August 2015.
