SAMAROH, an Indian fine dining restaurant situated in the posh streets of Vittal Mallya Road is truly a vegetarians paradise I should say. Samaroh stands up to its name and is truly a celebration of Indian Cuisine, a feast to eyes as much as it is a feast to your taste buds too. Samaroh is constantly in search of secret and lost recipes in the legendary cuisines across India and presents an array of a lip-smacking feast to their patrons. The ambiance here is very vibrant with hues of pink and yellow which suits the mood for a royal food journey
At Samaroh, it's not only celebrating Indian Cuisine, it's also about celebrating their valuable and cute cutlery and servewares. Yes, Samaroh cares much for the wellbeing of their patrons and that's why food is served exclusively in Kansa serve-wares. Kansa is a significant metal and this traditional serveware has been used by generations for its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. Eating in vessels made with Kansa metal has the power to cure and prevent gastric ailments, diabetes, and skin disorders and even Ayurveda strongly recommends serving and eating in Kansa metal. I also heard from my friend that the cost of these servewares used for one person for the hearty meal is around 30 to 40 thousand rupees, of course, it's a royal celebration only.
The Seven Course Royal Food Trail :
We crazy food junkies kickstarted the exotic and unlimited seven-course Indian meal with Kachhe Kairi ka Sharbat, a raw mango drink, then came the Amuse Bouche - Kesar Mewa Boondi, served in a cute little Kansa cutlery, the crumbled motichoor was perfectly sweetened and amused us with desi ghee all over.

Then comes the Anari Shorba and Hara Bhara Namkeen, in the namkeen, there was this Bakarwadi a savory roll made of wheat flour that has been spread with a spicy masala mixture and deep fried.

The Nastha affair had Hariyali paneer tikka with too soft paneer which just melted in our mouths, Rajma roll, Aloo tandoori, smoky and spiced up perfectly and Sev Khamani which drove us cray.

There is the Samaroh Pani Puri and Sev Puri Chaat too. The Pani-puri is served in cute little Kansa kettle with the paani and little puris with aloo stuffings. All these chaats come in a Kansa platter.

When our tummies were almost full, there comes the Mukhiya Bhoj(the main meals) again nowhere less in richness. The Mukhiya Bhoj had almost eleven items like chaas (buttermilk) , Boondhi Kadi, Mattar Paneer, Samaroh Kofta, Bhindi Do Pyaza, Tandoori Roti, Phulkas, Kulcha's, Pulao, Curd rice and steamed rice.
Now, if you ask me which one is my favorite, I would not want to lie, I loved every dish and this huge plate had all possible kinds of stuff to make one feel like a Maharajah/Maharani.
The happy plate, "The Mitha" was a stunning show stopper, we thoroughly enjoyed the Litchi shrikhand, Anar shrikhand, Rabdi Malpua, Kesari Rasamalai and a few more. I was almost food drunk at the end and please don't curse me now for making you all drool over.
