If you hail your roots from Mumbai, this place is a must visit because it is sure to give you a real glimpse of the South Indian food, and if you’re a vegetarian – this place is going to be a blessing in disguise.
The restaurant is architectured by the eminent Chandigarh based architect – Aman Aggarwal, which speaks of a perfectly lit place complimented with exquisite and retro interiors, Kamat’s makes the perfect destination for an outing with your family and friends alike.
Among many delicacies, we first tried their signature dish Vithal Batata Vada i.e. basically prepared with mashed potatoes, coriander, curd and their special disco chutney, which adds a tangy flavor to the recipe. Vithal Batata Vada is so 'chatpata' and marvelously delicious that you cannot just afford to miss.
Next we tasted 'The Misal Pav', a paav bhaji kind of a dish that has the perfect amount of pulses, spices and flavor to keep your food cravings at bay. Both the dishes promise the authentic Maharashtrian touch, which you will certainly not find in North India easily.
Coming to the South-Indian food, the Masala Dosa is aptly prepared along with coconut and tomato chutney, while the sambhar tastes like the actual South Indian dish prepared with fresh drumsticks as an ingredient, which is rarely found in other South Indian restaurants in the region.
Spicy butter milk and fresh lime soda promise rejuvenation on a hot sunny day, and the spicey butter milk is something that will compliment your main course well.
For the sweet tooth, you can blindly trust on the Moong Dal Halwa or Rawa Kesari Halwa which are authentically prepared to satiate your taste buds. The best part is that both these halwas are mild in both their sugar and 'ghee' content without compromising at all on the taste!
The Chefs of this restaurant are Mr. Pangiri, from Mumbai and Mr. Vijay, from Surat. The group has steadily grown over the past few years, and now proudly caters to an ever increasing number of Indian Domiciles abroad who have a ravenous and keen appetite for Indian Cuisine; particularly the Udupi variety. So, mark your calendar to visit Kamats Restaurant for an enchanting culinary experience.
