RJ Kabul, Afghani Cuisine at its best....... Gurgaon

Our Hunger for Good food brought us to this eatery or a restaurant as it should be called.......Its an Afghani Food Joint in Gurgaon....Most of the people are still unaware of RJ Kabul Hotel and Restaurant and Shahi Kitchen ( both r same establishments)........

Menu (outer)


We the night roamers located this joint when we were going to have dinner at Malabar Hotel ...but as it was 10.30 p.m. already so Malabar was closing down for the day......I think sometimes when you think some bad has happened with you it turns into some good which is waiting for you....like we found this Afghan restaurant........ The interior is done well...with 3 seating options .viz...dining table style...lounge style sofas and the novelty which is the Baithaks ..a low level/ground level seating made on 2-3 stepped platforms......

They also have live ghazal programs on weekends.......

Now lets talk about food (our main driving factor)
We ordered 3-4 items from their menu after a good chat with the owner Mohib (v.sweet guy) ....who suggested us to have the specialties’ in Afghani cuisine which i also agreed with him....
In kebabs we ordered Chupan Kabab ..which is succulent pieces of smoky Mutton ( the dish resembles Tabak Maaz of kashmiri cuisine and burrah to some extent but its subtle)....It was real good...... 4.0 / 5.0
 
Chopan Kebab
In Rice we ordered Kabli Ugbaki ....which is a very nice spread of v.high quality rice with pieces of chicken, sultanas pieces of carrot .....It was too Good.......4.0 / 5.0

We also ordered Karayee chicken.....which was v.nice if u like tangy style butter chicken as it not a gravy item but tomato gravy coated chicken pieces cooked v.well..3.5 / 5.0

Dal Makhani

Nan was big in size....and good...they offer a bread each with their dish....we were also given broth full of veggies for all of us which was bland and avoidable and also a plate of rajma also..Both were complementary...
The quantity is good.....in some items it can be a little more like Chupan Kabab is for Rs.300 which has only 5-6 small pieces of mutton...But as per the taste it is v.good.....so v did not bother too much. Dal was enough for 2-3 people chicken dish is also enough for 2 people...Rice is just enough for 2 people....Pricing overall is fine.

Service was not up to the mark as we were told that their servers had left for the day which was 'not good as the place was still open.....but the owner helped us and served us well...which saved the ship. Our experience must have been better if the service was also good....which we were promised will be better on our next visit..

Ambience ......3.5 / 5.0
Food ...............4.0 / 5.0
Service ...........3.0 / 5.0
Pricing..............4.0 / 5.0
Parking .............4.0 / 5.0
