Qureshi Restaurant28 Feb 2017
With its classy décor and set amidst the greens of a golf course, Qureshi Restaurant is one of those underrated restaurants that you must try. Located in TPC Kuala Lumpur (formerly known as the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club), most diners here come for business meals or large family dinners.
The restaurant serves Awadhi cuisine, which is a cuisine native to Lucknow, India and known to be greatly influenced by Mughal cooking techniques. Walking into the restaurant, you’ll notice the interiors are rather lavish from the furnishings to the centrepiece chandelier.
Browsing through their menu, I opted for their bread selection of roti and paratha to go with paneer tikka butter masala (tandoor-cooked cheese with tomato masala). As a complimentary starter, we were given more bread (so much for carb-free dinners) accompanied by three types of curries. There’s something truly comforting about dipping freshly made flatbreads into a steaming bowl of paneer cheesy goodness. We also sampled the curry with their subz dum briyani (basmati rice cooked with green herbs, aromatic spices and seasonal vegetables), which was just as moreish.
The fragrant rice complemented the curry well but there was one thing missing – meat. We then ordered Qureshi’s signature tandoori grilled chicken, lamb, fish and prawns. This was a platter to suit every taste and even though I’m not a fan of seafood, I found myself tucking into the grilled prawns with much gusto!
To end, we had a glass of refreshing mango lassi, which is a sweet Indian drink made from a yogurt base and water, along with a classic rasmalai (cottage cheese dumplings in saffron reduced milk) – the perfect end to a hearty meal.
If you’re keen to be waited on and eat like Indian royalty, head here.
