Mixing it up at Daarukhana

New opening Daarukhana promises a ‘haute cuisine contemporary Indian’ experience for diners at its Thompson Road venue.

Hoping to spice things up, the restaurant mixes ‘overseas’ ingredients such as chilli honey-glazed French langoustines and American duck shami with regional Indian cuisines such as dum ke chaap – lamb chops cooked the Northern Indian way in a rich gravy and spicy saffron sauce. Tandor dishes include Norwegian gongura salmon tikkaand prime short ribs.

All dishes are large enough – and designed – to share; the plant-based menu includes vegetarian dishes such as roasted baingan (aubergine) cooked two ways and there are plenty of creative sides including stuffed baby breads, daal of the day, kulchas (mildly leavened flatbreads) and Persian-inspired barberry pulao.  141 Thompson Road, Tai Yip Building, Wan Chai. daarukhana.com
