Gulmurg is a iconic north indian cuisine restaurant located at Hotel Shalimar, Mumbai.
The fifty year old restaurant has a beautiful ambiance and a old world charm.
Though gulmurg is known for it’s authentic mughlai delicacies, it serves a fair bit of continental as well.
The elaborate food menu which is divided into two sections (Indian and continental) includes a variety of soup, salads, appetizers, mains and desserts.
So here is what I had –
ORANGE MOJITO –
Orange juice muddled with mint leaves/basil and oranges.
Fresh basil flavour, refreshing !
BADAM KA SHORBA –
Roasted almond and milk based soup with mild spices and finely chopped almonds.
The soup had a hint of natural almond sweetness with a subtle flavour of black pepper. Nice !!
MURG ELAICHI SHORBA –
Chicken broth soup with cream/shredded chicken and black pepper.
Mild kashmiri elaichi and cinnamon flavour made it soothing and aromatic.
NON VEGETARIAN PLATTER –

I liked all the kebabs but the chicken ones were my favorite, soft juicy and flavourful !
MURG MAKHANI –
Shredded chicken tikka simmered in a tomato cream gravy.
Flavoured with fenugreek leaves, the gravy was thick and mildy spiced, it had a hint of sweetness too…. Fantastic !!
CHEESE GARLIC NAAN –
Naan loaded with amul cheese/butter and chopped garlic.
Tasted delicious with butter chicken !
PRAWNS TERKIYAKI –
Juicy prawns/onions and bell peppers, grilled on skewers.

The japanese teriyaki sauce had a twist of thyme and rosemary.
It was a complete meal for one… enjoyed it !
Crushed rice and milk phirni, garnished with saffron strands and chopped almonds.
