Magnum Opus -a new entrant in the fast burgeoning food space poses a promising start in the global cuisine specialty line of restaurants. We were invited for a food review session by Shreeya Vinay from Orca Studio.
The interios were inviting and the decor instantly lulled us into trying the huge spread available here.
We started with the manchow soup, piping hot and fresh- had so much warmth , we couldnt just stop at tasting – we finished it in no time.
We ordered for a non veg platter which is a generous portions of fish, prawns and chicken.
Fish mahi tikka was prepared with tandoori spices which tasted great enrobed with the tandoori; murgh nizami kebab is also a great option to try while the prawns tandoori zafrani more like saffron put to good use but did not impress us much.
Murgh irani kebab is a tad like tangdi kebab however, it tasted very much like lamb tikka.
The lilting music, the dim lighting and ambient surroundings ensure you forget everything and just dine.
For the mains we tried the thai rice with coconut curry which was mediocre.
Then we ordered chicken patiala which was a great suggestion offered by the staff. Try this with masala kulcha – its certainly different from the regular kulcha you may have had.
The dum biryani had a little too much of saffron so the dish tasted a little bitter and did not taste like it should have.
We were really looking forward to the desserts.
The gulab jamun, the rosgulla and the gajar halwa- all three did justice to our sweet tooth by sending it on a joy ride.
We definitely look forward to taking in the calm ambience, the delightfully tasty food and the pleasant surroundings , very soon by dropping in at Magnum Opus again!
