Indian Times

Average: 4 (1 vote)

Authentic Indian food with a twist may sound like a marketing gimmick, but drop by and you’ll see what it means. Indian Times offers fine-dining North Indian cuisine in a Zen interior, but the novelty here is that its tables are fitted with barbeque pits so you can grill your own kebabs. Its buffet menu changes daily and offers very good value for money. There's also an a la carte menu and signature items to look out for include the raan e dum Kinara (leg of lamb marinated with herbs and spices), murgh pastoom (tandoori chicken in a creamy tomato gravy) and tandoori jheenga jal tarang (jumbo tiger prawns).

Authentic Indian food with a twist sounds paradoxical, but head over to Indian Times at Big Splash and see it make sense. The restaurant offers fine-dining North Indian cuisine, but the novelty here are its tables, which are similar to what you can find at Korean restaurants—fitted with barbecue pits for you to charcoal-grill your own kebabs. For an Indian restaurant, the décor is also refreshingly Zen, with dark wood panels and Japanese-styled lamp shades. We ordered the a la carte dishes such as the palak paneer. The cottage cheese was of the right texture and the subtle use of spices did not overwhelm the natural flavor of the blended spinach—yum. The chicken tikka masala was good too, with generous portions of chicken. For desserts, we had kulfi, which was a pleasant way to end the meal. Along with friendly service, we’re likely to return for its reasonably priced buffet comprising lamb, chicken and mutton kebabs and other vegetarian and curry dishes.
