More often than not the high end five stars have left me disappointed with the food quality, but Peshawari at ITC Maratha had surely made amends for its counterpart.
Located near the international airport ITC Maratha hosts 4-5 restaurants of which Peshawari caters to the mughlai cuisine.
The ambience of Peshawari is classy, it has a low seating arrangement and they prefer foodie having the food using their hands, all in all giving a classy mughal touch and feel to the place.
Have been here in multiple occasions, have always ordered the raan and dal makhani and assortments of bread to go with it.
Peshawari claims to have cooked their raan marinated overnight, true to their words it's indeed overnight marination which makes the meat so juicy and soft and one can enjoy the flavors of spices with each bite into the raan.
Coming to the dal makhani, it's the best dal makhani have had in years, unlike to many places where the makhani (I.e butter) a blob is poured as and when the dish is cooked, but over here it's well cooked into the dish and one can enjoy the creamy taste with every dip of dal with the rotis.
To sum it up Peshawari is a classy place, where one is made to feel that the food directly comes out from the kitchen of a mughal king.
It's sad that one doesn't gets to experience oneself to such sumptuous meals on a frequent basis, as economics catches up with you, when one realises that they are paying a bomb for the dishes!! ??
