Kailash Parbat is one of the places that is an obvious choice if we’re looking for a pure vegetarian place. Today being mom’s birthday, wanted to go to a vegetarian restaurant for lunch. In fact, Hamsa in Adayar was the first choice. Walked into the place at 1PM only to be told that the waiting time would be more than an hour, considering ours was a big group of 9 Pax. Searched for an alternative and was too happy to spot Kailash Parbat right in the next street. Couldn’t be happier, we proceeded there and that’s how this visit happened.
No stranger to Kailash Parbat, have visited their branch in Velachery right after they opened. Have visited their outlet in the food court of Phoenix mall umpteen number of times, and perhaps I’ve been to their outlet in Chetpet too, long ago.
We were lucky we got place to park both the cars as someone else just vacated the spot in time. We were told we had to wait for about 20 minutes, but got the table in less than five minutes, thanks to the manager who did a bit of reorganizing the tables to accommodate us.
Ordered 2/4 of Sweet corn soup, 1/2 of Tomato soup and 2/3 of Manchow Soup to cover all 9 of us. Manchow Soup was the best of all the three. The crispy noodles weren’t as crisp as they should have been. Tomato soup wasn’t as thick as I’d expected, a bit runny and not as flavorsome. The croutons were good though. Sweet corn soup was also not the best I’ve had. Overall, a pretty ordinary start to the meal, I thought.
Dilli wale Gol Gappe was good, liked the filling inside the poori and the paani too. We enjoyed this dish. Since we were 9 pax, we ordered 2 nos of everything.
Anarkali Paneer Tikka seemed a bit fancy compared to the regular one, decided to try. It was okayish, a bit sweet because of the beetroot, otherwise not what I’d normally expect of a Paneer Tikka. The smoky flavor of the Tandoor/Clay oven was hardly felt. Wished we should have stuck to the regular one instead.
Crispy Fried vegetables was super yummy! Loved it. Perfectly crispy and tasty. We loved it.
Masala Papad was pretty good too. Didn’t have any complaints with it.
Chole Bhature was superb. Since we were too quick to share the Bhature amongst us, couldn’t click a pic of it. The chole tasted superb and we got the green Chilli used to make bajjis (bajji molaga, in Tamil) as accompaniment to this. It was very good. The cut onions were fresh and crunchy.
Finally after the soup and starters, proceed to the main course. 3 gravies – Saag Paneer, Paneer Makhanwala, and Dal Makhani along with Butter and Regular Tandoori Rotis. One Vegetable Pulav. Paneer Makhanwala was a bit too sweet to my liking but nothing worth complaining. Dal Makhani and Saag Paneer were absolutely wonderful, we loved it. Pulav was tasty too. Overall main course was wonderful.
We decided to just order two Sizzling Brownies and share it among ourselves. It was a nice end to a good lunch.
We also did a takeaway of Fried Rice and Gobi Manchurian Gravy, didn’t click a pic of that.
Overall, we were there for close to two hours. Service was attentive throughout except when one Butter Roti took too long to come, otherwise very courteous service. It was a wonderful family get together and mom’s birthday lunch was well done. Paid about 6.3K in all, understandable as we were 9 Pax and all of the starters were 2 numbers each. The bill included a Service charge of over 500 bucks, and hence didn’t tip in addition to it.
Some small misses here and there, but nothing worth being called bad or non-palatable. I’d gladly recommend this place and come back again if I am looking for a vegetarian restaurant in Adayar.
