Comments Off on Mahabelly – Saket

Over the years as South Indian food started gaining popularity in Delhi, a number of so called South Indian restaurants opened up which tinkered with flavours to suit the local palate. The end result was South Indian food here lost its distinctive regional flavours and got generalised.
This restaurant which is tucked away behind DLF Place Saket makes an honest effort to rectify the above problem.
The interiors are simple and clean.
Cartoons of caricatures of Keralities on the walls was a nice touch. Especially liked the colourful wall painting depicting a Kathakali Dancer.
Started with Mutton Varathathu and Erachi Double Fry. The mutton starter was good but the beef starter was not up to the mark. The beef was too rubbery and really hard to chew.
In mains we ordered Chicken Roast and Vegetable Stew. The Chicken was swamped in slushy masala but tasted decent and the malabar parotta accompanying it was also well prepared. The vegetable stew was good but the appams served with it were too thick and not light & fluffy as they should be.
The dessert was Sweet Coconut Dosa with ice cream & Banana Jam. It tasted good.

All in all a mix bag, the food is above average, service is good and prices are reasonable.
