“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
― Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own
We had a really a well dining experience at Red Dot. It is a Multi cuisine Restaurant, specialized in Lucknow variety of kawab and Afghani cuisines opened very recently near Hindusthan Park, Kolkata and that is 4th of its kind after Mumbai, Nasik and Pune with capacity of 30 covers. Reddot restaurant has dine in service along with the take away facility. It’s very clean and the service is outstanding. This is one of the best new restaurants in this area and definitely a great spot for all occasions. Menu selections are well-prepared, affordably priced, and served in generous portions. Choices include biryani options, vegetarian fare, and dishes based on chicken and fish.
The Dishes We Had :
North Indian Dishes –
Reshmi malai kebab –
Reshmi Malai Kababs are always considered as a healthy Appetizer or starter. It is one of the most popular Indian Kabab dish, served hot. The beautiful aroma of flavors and tenderness of chicken and the marination of this kabab was so juicy and tender that really turns into a mouth melting kabab dish.
Kulfi kebab –
Kulfi Kebab is chicken wings marinated with cheese, Tandoori Mayo, cream and some seasoning which is later wrapped in banana leaf and grilled on stove top. Perfect recipe for your brunch parties that will certainly leave your guests licking their fingers. It is having and an amazing creamy flavored authentic Indian taste that works best for the taste buds. Loved equally by one and all, it was really a tempting dish.
Tandoori chicken –
Cooked to perfection, this Tandoori Chicken is moist and tender, and packed with the flavor of fragrant Indian spices, yogurt and citrus. Tandoori chicken is hands-down the most popular dish at any Indian restaurant, and one of my favorites. This Indian take on barbecue chicken is flavorful, spicy, and has universal appeal.
Lucknow Biryani –
The Lucknowi Murgh Biryani is very popular in India, especially in Delhi and Lucknow. Authentic Lucknowi Style. it was an amazingly flavorsome biryani. The layered curried rice was prepared with Basmati rice and chicken was cooked in delicious spicy ingredients. I was speechless out there..”Just pass me the platter ,i’ll finish off in minutes..looks excellent! ” was a great looking dish and it tasted even better.
Chicken Rara Masala –
Chinese Dishes –
Crispy chicken schezwan style –
Delectable Schezwan Crispy Chicken is a perfect appetizer or snack for party food or for feast. This fried chicken is more crispy and well tenderized. These are super-addictive!
Burnt chili chicken –
This dish we found was excellent in delivering flavoursome food that was spicy but not overpowering. I would definitely recommend the burnt chilli chicken.
Reddot prepared each dish separately to maintain the original taste. The kebabs were immacculate, and Tandoor chicken worth the price.
The restaurant is cosy and a real find in the Hindusthan park area. Thanks Chef for serving us great food with few refreshing mocktails.
