Four Shahi Courses @ Berkeley
Diwan-e-Aam Bun Kabab
Shami kabab topped with our wicked spicy chutney, fresh cilantro and onions in a savory bun… long after the last Mughal perished, this subcontinental Street food endures as a perennial favorite.
Mughlai Chicken Boti Kababs
After the Taj Mahal (and a few other nifty tombs) Mughlai boti kabab is arguably one of the Mughal’s finest achievements, and remains a gourmand’s delight
East Meets West Mini Pizza
Pizza Romano on Afghani Naan = two dynasties in culinary harmony.
The East India Company Besan Brittles
All resistance is futile against the guiles of this sweet offering of gram flour, cardamom, and caramelized sugar.
