Passage Thru’ India is one of the most reputable Indian restaurants in town. Having established its first outlet at Wisma Central since year 1993, Passage Thru’ India has expanded into a few outlets and established a loyal fan base.
The Jalan Delima outlet is spacious and artistic. The restaurant decor is accented by paintings, ornaments and interior deco that the owner sources from India during his travels.
We started with some crispy papadum with chutneys. They were crunchy, delicious, light and appetizing.
This Mango Lassi is thick and creamy and is full of probiotics, such a delicious drink suited to the hot weather.
Tandoori Platter – Mixed Kebab (RM 50). We loved the combination of tandoori chicken, fish tikka, chicken tikka, seekh kebab (minced lamb mixed with herbs and spices), and tandoori shrimp. They were being marinated in different aromatic spices and grilled to perfection, making it a perfect starter.
The garlic butter naan and garlic naan were so soft and fluffy with some nice crispy charred bits. Seriously so good.
The chicken biryani is an aromatic, mouth watering and authentic Idish with succulent chicken in layers of fluffy rice, fragrant spices and caramelized onions. The flavor of the biryani is rich and it tastes so great too. The rice is so fluffy and flavourful, which make every bite blissful.
It was our first time trying Gobi Manchurian, a popular Indo Chinese appetiser made with cauliflower, corn flour, soya sauce, vinegar, chilli sauce, ginger & garlic. The cauliflower is first coated in batter and then deep fried until crisp before being tossed in sweet, sour and hot manchurian sauce. So delicious!
Rogan Josh is one of the better known Indian classics, and this fiery lamb or mutton dish from the Kashmir region of India is now popular all over the world. The heavenly blend of spices in this rich, aromatic curry combined with meltingly tender lamb pieces is just out of this world.
Andhra Fish Curry – it is a delicious, spicy and slightly tangy gravy (tamanrinds were used), so perfect with white rice!
For desserts, we had the most classic Indian sweet – Gulab Jamun. It is made with milk solids, sugar, rose syrup and cardamon powder. These sweet round balls are always too sweet for me, so having one is more than enough.
