Eating out has become a ritual for us. Our popular method to spend time with friends and family is to visit restaurants. While good food is available almost everywhere, it still lacks some highlights and an element of awe that can only be found in high-end restaurants. That’s why we want to celebrate our special moments in life by visiting a 5 star hotel! Just enjoying a culinary experience that not only satisfies our taste buds but also captivates all our other senses is what makes fine dining so special. I was recently invited to review Radisson Blu MBD Noida’s fine dining restaurant Made In India, and I was delighted to enjoy an experience unlike any other!
From the atmosphere, the hospitality to the food, Made In India impressed me in every way. Upscale restaurant specializing in North Indian and Awadhi cuisine. I was honored to try the menu created by Chef Nurul Bashar, the newly appointed Master Chef at Made In India. The restaurant focuses on bringing a royal experience to fine dining.
When I arrived at the restaurant, I was warmly greeted by the Made In India team and seated in their private dining space called the Maharaja table. This particular seat stands out from the crowd thanks to its chess-inspired dining table, bold wallpaper and plush chairs. When visiting Made In India, I highly recommend enjoying your meal at the maharaja table.
They offer two decadent menus, one is called the Maharaja menu, which is completely non-vegetarian, and the other is the Maharani menu, which is completely vegetarian. I am not vegetarian and would love to eat the Maharaja menu.
What I eat:
For those who like appetizers, I had Tilasmi Mahi Tikka, Murgh Gola Kebabs, Sultani Seekh, Dora Kebab and Jhinga Kali Mirch.
Tilasmi Mahi Tikka is the perfect balance between taste and texture. The clay pot grilled fish simply melted in my mouth. Jhinga Kali Mirch is made with one of the biggest shrimps I have ever eaten. I was intrigued by Dora Kebab and Sultani Seekh, as the former is made on a thin thread and the latter is made on a sword. Yes, you heard right. Sultani Seekh is wrapped around a royal sword and served straight from sword to plate. Murgh Gola Kebabs are minced chicken shaped like golas.
Moving on to the main course, I had Nihari Gosht, Murgh Estew, Murg Nawabi Lukma and Dal Makhani. The power supply comes with many side dishes – Laccha Paratha, Khamiri, Keema Paratha, Naan, Mutton Biryani, Gucchi pulao and Red Chilli Kabalian Naan.
Any North Indian meal is incomplete without a creamy and delicious bowl of dal makhani, and when I take a bite of laccha paratha dipped in dal makhani, I’m in heaven! Nihari Gosht is a classic in Awadhi cuisine, and the chef’s rendition of Nihari Gosht has been superb. Nihari’s seasonings enhance the natural flavor of the lamb, providing a balance of savory flavors. Murgh Estew is a family specialty that is creamy and delicious in taste. Murgh Nawabi Lukma had tender pieces of chicken soaked in a rich tomato and cashew nut sauce.
We finished the meal with Kulfi Homemade and Gulkand Gulab Jamun. Both desserts are quite outstanding, however, I prefer the creamy taste of Kulfi Homemade.
Overall, I enjoyed the meal and will definitely love to come back whenever I want to enjoy the royal feast! I highly recommend everyone to visit this fine dining restaurant in Noida
