Sindh Kitchen is one of the very few restaurants in Bangalore, serving authentic Sindhi dishes. The restaurant was started by a Sindhi Family and located at two places in Bangalore – Indirangar and Malleswaram. Popularity and love for the food at Indirangar outlet, encouraged the family to start another restaurant in Malleswaram. I recently visited the restaurant and tried some of the wonderful dishes.
- The restaurant, located on the 4th level of the building that has Bloom Botique Hotel and MTR.
- Guests can see the Mantri Square and plenty of trees in the Malleswaram area. The setup looks perfect for romantic date, business lunch/dinner or family dinner.
- The restaurant can seat nearly 60 guests. And each of the seats have cushions which is very comfortable for everyone.
- Basic cutleries are setup on every table. Nearly 2-8 guests can the table and have food. There is also a special section which can seat nearly 12-14 folks, ideally suited for big families and corporate team-lunches.
- There are some wonderful designs on the floor. In future, the owners plan to enhance the interiors of the restaurant by adding more paintings and artwork.
The restaurant serves some wonderful Sindhi and North Indian dishes. There are plenty of Veg and Non Veg dishes at this restaurant but I will be sharing info about the Veg dishes.
Paneer Tikka salad had cubes of cottage cheese, tomato, colored bell peppers & onions. Salad looks normal but the taste and flavour are wonderful. It become hard to resist after taking one bite.
There are plenty of options for food lover including – Crispy Coriander Paneer, Subzi Seekh Pao, Soya Chop, Dill Laghi Nawab Tikki, Stuffed Karela, Stuffed Mushroom Khazana, Palak Patta Ki Chat, Dal Tikra Chat, Mini Kachori & samosa.
Among the dishes, Dal Tikra Chat is my top favourite. This chat is homemade Indian crispy pooris, marinated with dal & spices and topped with cooked dal and onions. The combination works wonder soon after its put into the mouth.
Palak Patta Ki Chaat is also very special starter which has Spinach leaf coated with gram flour and deep fried. The chat was very crispy, and I could hardly feel the flour on the Spinach. On top of the chaat, they add some curds, chutneys and seva.
Stuffed Mushroom Khazana had the spicy button mushroom stuffed with Methi leaves & Cheese in tandoori spices. The taste was great like the other starter and presentation was even better.
Crispy Coriander Paneer starter contained cubes of paneer stuffed with spinach, cheese, nuts and coated with coriander and deep fried. The homemade paneer tasted great and the combination with coriander, spinach add the required flavours. I loved every bit of the starter.
Soya Chop contained marinated soya with tandoori spices. Mock-meat is also called as ‘Mock Meat’ by foodies. This dish was a little spicy, which was done to replicate some of the spicy non-vegetarian dishes.
Apart from these, I did like the other starters – Subzi Seekh Pao, Stuffed Karela and Mini Kachori & Samosa.
Before tasting some of the items part of main-course, we tried the Afghan Papad. Kadak Roomali topped with cheese and spices can be taken while waiting for the main-course to be served.
It becomes difficult to order food when you visit a restaurant offering so many varieties. I tried the following dishes – Subzi Lazeez, Paneer Peshawari, Sunehri Kofta Makhan Palak and Dal Bhukara.
I personally loved the Subzi Lazeez as it contained Vegetables cooked with bell-peppers & yellow gravy.
Paneer Peshwari tasted very good as the tomato-based gravy added the flavours and paneer was soft. The dish was slightly sweet, creamy and goes along with all Indina breads.
Among the breads, I tried the Kadak Mirch Ka Paratha, Balochistan Naan, Khameeri Roti and Kashmiri Naan. Kashmiri Naan containing lots of dry-fruits, was my favourite as it was very unique.
Rice items are essential in the Sindhi meal and there are plenty of options for rice-lovers. I tried Afghani Pulao and Bhugha Chawal & Sai Baaaji. Both the rice items had great taste and went along very well with the gravy dishes.
There are couple of wonderful desserts that can be eaten any number of times – Angoori Rasmalai, Gajar Ka Halwa amd Praghree.
I specially loved the Praghree which crunchy layered deep fried pastry stuffed with Khoya. The other desserts were good but not as much as Praghree.
During the entire meal, I only tried the Mint Cooler which was pretty good.
This was one of one of the best Vegetarian dining in experience in a long time. There are plenty of special Sindhi dishes which I have not tried anywhere before. A special credit to the owners and chef, who balance to spice, sweet and seasoning level in the dishes. Some of my top favourite dishes were – Dal Tikra Chat, Palak Patta Chat, Crispy Coriander Paneer, Paneer Peshwari, Afghani Papad and Praghree. Service staff are very polite and ready to serve the guests. I will visit this place multiple times with friends & family, going forward.
