Review: Rang Mahal, JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai
Located in the acclaimed five-star Dubai Marquis JW Marriott Hotel in Business Bay, is the newly renovated and recently reopened Rang Mahal. Rang Mahal, translated as “Palace of Colors”, celebrates various cuisines from India.
The restaurant has a private environment, with illuminated Indian murals, bright colors embellished, huge carved wooden pillars and a glass wall kitchen on one side, allowing you to see the rustling cooking magic of chef Alok Kumar and the culinary team. Headed by Chef Moritz Neumann.
The menu is rich but well thought out, including traditional and modern vegetarian appetizers, non-vegetarian appetizers, curries, masala dishes, Bhuna (dried fried dishes), Rang Mahal specialties, Sides, Rice, Raita, Biryani, bread, and finally It is desserts from all over India. Each sounds delicious, so it’s a bit difficult to choose.
My dining partner wandered around the Rang Mahal lounge area, where you will find a selection of beverages that have been creatively planned to compliment traditional cooking classics.
A plate of mixed kimchi, pineapple and mint chutney was brought to our table with a portion of rice. We made a good start.
Finally, after careful consideration, we chose to try Mangalorean ghee grilled prawns with curry leaves, grated coconut and khakhra (a crispy flat bread) to scoop out a rich semi-dry gravy. This is followed by kebabs of lamb with radish, pickled onions and pomegranate puree.
Before we continue with the main course, we decided to taste the restaurant’s soaking drinks. Look for unique and interesting ingredients such as saffron, sweet pepper, rose, honey, and chili to enjoy creatively in a pleasant sip.
Next comes more cheese kofta, if you like creamy sweet and sour curry, you must try this dish. I’m not even ashamed to admit that I wiped off the last bit of the bowl with a piece of flat bread. The southern-style lamb is a delicious delicacy that melts in your mouth, and is best paired with flaky layered Laccha paratha (pancake).
Indian food lovers will recognize the familiar flavors in each dish, and will still be amazed by the simplicity and refinement of each dish. We used to.
Cooked with banana leaves, it is filled with prawns and small shrimps, cashews and spices. The prawns are fluffy, light, moist and not greasy at all.
By then it was absolutely full and we chose to share only one dessert-Cassata kulfi. The dessert is inspired by Italy, where cassata is a traditional cake from Sicily, consisting of a sponge cake dipped in juice and layered ricotta and candied fruit; also from India, where kulfi is a timeless frozen dairy product Desserts originated in the Indian subcontinent in the 16th century. Rang Mahal’s interpretation of sweets includes a layer of saffron, pistachio and rabdi (a sweetened condensed milk pudding), as well as chocolate gold leaf, fruit puree and faruda. marvelous.
Suitable for private dining, affordable casual celebrations and large gatherings. Looking forward to rich, fragrant and flavorful dishes, taking you on a culinary journey of different Indian cuisines in an elegant environment.
