It is always great when something new opens in the vicinity and Neel the Indian space brought much cheer as good kebab places seldom open. Neel as we understood is run by one from the Qureshi clan and this one is clubbed with another of the group’s restaurant Indigo Deli, both have distinct areas though. Smart move we thought whilst we saw pizzas and kebabs on the same table as we sipped our Tamatar Shorba.
We could order an array of items half portion options on most items, they call it the small;helped. The Karari Aloo tikki,Nadru ki shammi and the Shakarkandi tikka to begin with were excellent ,different texture, flavours and colours. We loved it.
For mains I went for the unusual, the Singhada and mushroom gravy and a dry fruit subzi, both were lackluster, the former sour and the latter devoid any discernible flavour, couldn’t go beyond a few morsels. I loved Taftan a rich saffron scented bread and the afternoon was saved by the humble dal and aromatic subz biryani. Service was courteous and polite but choppy and cluttered.
Will go back for Aloo tikki and the Kebabs ..
