Each day, there will be one dessert on offer; ours was the Kheer For Dessert which is a rice pudding made by boiling rice, broken wheat, vermicelli with milk & sugar; flavoured with cardamom, raisins, saffron, cashews, pistachios or almonds

Royal Darbar Restaurant Tandoori Chicken

Although our stomach is almost filled, we were really tempted to taste a few of the dishes that look tempting. After a little deliberation, we decided to order the Tandoori Chicken (RM25.00) which really did not disappoint us. The marination was perfect and the Chef has grilled it to the right char. that retains the succulence of the chicken. 

It was so good that we had to order a Buttered Naan to goes with it. The Naan served at Royal Darbar is one that is very thin and it is best paired with the Tandoori.

Royal Darbar Chicken Varuval

Another dish from the menu that we are tempted to order was the Chicken Varuval (RM25.00) which is one of a few Southern Indian dishes that is offered at Royal Darbar. When it arrives on our table, we were taken aback as it was not the familiar Chicken Varuval that is a much drier version that we are so accustomed to. Nevertheless, with the gravy style and a strong hint of onion and coriander, it was nice to finish up with the Buttered Naan,

Royal Darbar Mango Kulfi

As a fan of Mango, I could not resist ordering the Mango Kulfi (RM10.00) a homemade Alphonso Mango ice cream which has a sweet, rich creamy mango taste.

Royal Darbar Mango Lassi

As for me, I have a sweet spot for Mango Lassi (RM10.00) and needless to say an order of my favourite Indian drink that will comfort my palate cannot be missed out.
