Looking for a place with wonderful ambience and delicious food? – Aurum is where you should be heading. Located in the prime Defence colony market, is one of the best dine-in restaurants. Stewards and managers were attentive and polite, gave us enough time to place the order.
We were served the cone shaped papad with a sauce. Thumbs up to the delicate hands used to make the papad, they were so awesome.
Time for the show stopper on the table – BRAAN. Butter Chicken stuffed inside Naan! The presentation was amazing and the taste was out of the world. We all butter chicken, and now using butter chicken as a filling seems trending. In one of the restaurants had butter chicken pasta, that too was good. Quantity of BRAAN was ample for two. Though it had a sauce, but braan was sufficient for your taste buds to go crazy. One of the highly recommended dish at Aurum!
After a heavy appetizer, we managed the main course. MURGH METHI MALAI was definitely a filling main course. Taste wise it appeared big brother of Butter Chicken. Chicken pieces were soft. The masala gravy was mouth watering. After the heavy BRAAN, we managed to eat the main course as well, as taste of both snacks and main course was amazing.
Breads were fresh. Service was quick and last minute changes were accommodated easily. Ambience was well maintained and sitting was comfortable. Songs being played tured out to be my favorite – Lucky Ali, Sonu Nigam. The hanging chandelier being our seat gave us a royal feeling. The designer floors and walls were clean and well maintained.
