Another Icon Of A Restaurant In Mangalore

Located in the first unofficial ‘mall’ of Mangalore since at least 1993, Chicken tikka halal has courted thousands of locals over the years for its meat preparations. The namesake dish is one such fan favourite here. While rarely errant on consistency, it’s brought to mind as the first among equals in Mangalore for Tikkas & Tandooris.

Sabzi Kadai

A veg Kadai is often a Tomato rich gravy with a moderately spicy coriander-cumin & red chilli masala mix. This is not too different, but for a heat pretty similar to a Kolhapuri, yet this isn’t put under that label. Well, at least the truckload of veggies still fits the title! Personally while we didn’t dislike this, we wish it were less spicy & a bit creamier, but that might be just us….is it?

Price: ₹170


Paneer chilli

Silken pan tossed paneer in a spicy & sharp sauce, likely from the addition of a souring agent apart from Soy sauce, & we know what that tends to be. It’s what many of us mistook for water/chugged as a challenge back in the day, only for it to be spat out in disgust! Clue: Vine__r. Also, this is refreshingly spicy from the green chillies. If that makes sense. Go figure.

Tandoori Roti

The forefather of the Tandoori breads, healthier compared to many oil/ghee roasted variants, & complementing any North Indian curry.

Price: ₹25


Paneer Tikka Masala

It was a veg night for one of the members. Knowing the dependency of the Masalas at CTH, we ordered the Paneer Tikka without batting any eyelids. Well grilled cubes of paneer were simmered in a heat-negligible tomato-sauce based gravy, much the same way their poultry always is. With an enjoyable richness from the yogurt-mellowed spices & juicy veggies, this was a no-brainer alongside tandoori roti & the Irani Parotta. To those who were expecting chicken, surprise mothalovaz!

Food: 8.6/10

Price: ₹170 (10 cubes, feeds ~ 3)


Irani Parotta

A less flaky version of the Malabar parotta, fragrantly pan fried in ghee, with a crispy top layer & stretchy consistency. Guilty goodness.

Tandoori Roti

The forefather of the Tandoori breads, healthier compared to many oil/ghee roasted variants, & complementing any North Indian curry.
