Memsaab serves Mughlai food and contemporary Indian cuisine and has two branches in Dubai. I visited the JLT branch for dinner with my friends. The restaurant has outdoor and indoor seating areas. While the outdoor is close to nature, in the indoor area one can view the tandoor and grill section of the kitchen through a large glass window.
Once seated, we were served Jaljeera Welcome Drinks and some fryums with mint chutney. I also tried Mango Lassi & Mint Lemon.
For starters, we had Dahi Papdi Chaat, Tandoori Jinga and Non-veg. Tandoori Platter. The chaat was amazing and so were the prawns and the mixed non-veg. kebabs, though the prawns were a bit too charred. The kebabs were juicy and delish.
Mains were Malai Kofta, Chicken Balti and Mutton Rogan Josh with Bread Basket. Among these three curries that we tried, only Mutton Rogan Josh was good. It was flavourful and appealing. Malai Kofta was extremely sweet and Chicken Balti was just average. After starting off on a good note, the mains disappointed me.
Hoping for the best, we ordered Gulab Jamun with and without ice-cream and Ghia Gajar ka Kheer. Gulab jamuns were yumm yummmm…. Soft, hot and delicious with ice-cream and without too!! The kheer was too good too. It was my first time trying ghia in kheer but it tasted nice. They could have added a little more gajar (shredded carrots) too.
