Time Out Says

It seems you can’t find high-end Indian cuisine without it appearing in a plume of dry ice these days, and Jodhpur is no exception. Not that we’re complaining. There are plenty of flourishes here to set the restaurant apart from your average curry house, both in terms of dishes and presentation. We love the addition of a macaron chaat as an amuse bouche; a delightfully chewy, soft, sweet and savoury oxymoron of a pre-starter.

The menu is extensive so you can either indulge your inner culinary adventurer (popcorn chutney or truffle sand, anyone?) or play it safe and enlist the help of the waiters. Kale patta chaat with chatpata tarbooz and feta curd is, in essence, a unique take on a kale, watermelon and feta salad. It comes in a flurry of the aforementioned dry ice, making it a really interesting dish. The flavours match perfectly, plus it’s bright and eye-catching. The carrot and beet tikki works well, but is rich. Paneer tikka masala is creamy, flavourful and comfort food-esque, but it’s eclipsed by a chicken pine nut poha. This is punchy with a rich gravy that perfectly complements the tender meat. It’s pricey, but when the name includes “Royal” it’s not unexpected. And portions are far from stingy.
