@patialahouse is situated in @soukalbahar first floorzz interiors are dark themed with beautiful spot lights showing peace and warmth.. they welcomed us with grace and Mr Santhosh was guiding us throughout the time. To speak about the food, the drinks served were 1. Twisted teeky-cocktail...2. Bombay safari-cocktail 3. Apple delight-mocktail 4. Candy pan mojito-mocktail 5. Green tea martini-cocktail Each drink were simply AMAZING! We loved the presentation, how so many flavours work on the drink and yet none of the flavours were overpowering. Food served were the non veg set menu Grill platter had lamb seekh, amritsari fish, murg malai kebab and dhaniya murgh tikka. Served as starters it was good presentation and taste wise. Spiced right and flavourful not overpowering as well. Main course had the following Murg methi- good curry. The cashew and fenugreek aroma was quite evident. Lamb curry- good curry. Perfect to go alongside the naan or rice. Dal makhni- just ok. Can work more on the flavours of the curry. Chicken biryani- ok biryani. More masala and rice was bit overcooked. Can do much better with the biryani. Served with naan basket or steam rice as per ur choice. Dessert was gulab jamun and cardamon kulfi which was heavenly. Loved the combination of the food. Overall the place is good. Drinks were the perfect treat for those u love to chit chat, watch match and just want to have fun with drinks and ofcourse hang around with friends.More

First there was a bit of confusion over what we wanted. The service was really awful, and it was clear that they didn't care whether they wanted us to visit again! Food is standard, could have eaten the same meal for a fraction of the...price. It's a shame as it was really quiet and they could have made more of an effort to make it a better service. I would not reccommend it and nor will I visit again.More

We went for the friday buffet as a couple and had one veg and one non-veg set menu. The food was good and we found it very good value for money. This place doesnt compare to Amal Armani for fine dining indian but for the...price, it is very good value. The food portions are large and a lot of variety offered in set menu. We were very full and unable to finish all the mains, we asked but unfortunately we weren't able to have this packaged up to eat later which is a shame as no doubt it was just binned.More

Wow. What a incredible mixture of great service and wonderful food. It is located in Dubai mountail souk al bahar mall. Ambience is very cosy. Bt food I must say chef bharat has given its best to make us fell wow. Lotus stem chat I...think the most innovative dish. Wonderfully curated. Masala gin jaljeera is a great aperitif. In main course must try Malabar fish curry, yellow dal, pindi chole. Dessert jalebi with rabdi and bhala doi is out of the world. Overall great experience.More
