Review: Urban Tadka, a Dhaba Style Restobar in Mumbai

What you see-
Housed on the third floor of R City Mall at Ghatkopar, Urban Tadka is a Dhaba styled family restobar. The walls are adorned with country side scenes. Colorful glass bangles and scarves add character, and musical instruments gel with the décor. The seating consists of rustic wooden benches and tables. Pickles, chutneys and flavored yoghurt are kept on the table and Hindi and Punjabi music play in the background. The menu card is in the form of a slate.

What you get-
Urban Tadka serves North Indian and Punjabi cuisine with an urban twist. The bar serves various Indian and international beers, whiskey, vodka, wine and other liquors. The cocktails and mocktails have unique Indian names. Here, Long Island Iced Tea becomes ‘Lambi Chai’ and Margarita becomes well, ‘Sita, Geeta aur Margarita’. Guests can also try various sherbets like ‘Lemon pudina’, ‘Pineapple peru’ and more.

Bar at Urban Tadka!

For starters, we started with Nimbu Chicken, which had succulent pieces of chicken with bone and cooked in butter with ginger and lime. Alternatively, we suggest you try the dish as main course with some Indian bread.

Next, we tried the Galouti kebab, a North Indian melt-in-your-mouth delicacy made with finely minced lamb and Indian spices is one of the best served in town.

The main course has vegetarian, non-vegetarian and seafood dishes listed under ‘Tarkari Treat’, ‘Udta Murga’ and ‘Do you Seafood’! For the main course we had ‘Keema kaleji’ served with pao, a type of Indian bread. A traditional minced lamb dish, the Keema Kaleji was spicy and well made. The dessert section had good selection of Indian desserts like Jalebi rabri, Gulab jamun, Phirni, Gajrela and more. We tried Gajrela. Made with juicy carrots cooked in cream and ghee it came hot and generously topped with almond slivers. The mouth Freshner served in an unique Balance Scale was eye-catching and had Saunf, Gur and toothpicks, which we happily gobbled while gossiping.


Our Verdict - 
One of the finest Indian restaurants in town, Urban Tadka, Ghatkopar sets a high benchmark with good décor and excellent menu. The service is very alert and prompt. The limited dishes on offer are all well made and can be tried at least once. Go here to enjoy a nice Dhaba style evening with family or friends. Happy hours are from 4 PM till 7 PM from Monday to Friday. Guests can use parking facilities of the mall and Urban Tadka provides reservation and takeaway facilities. Urban Tadka has a presence in other locations of Mumbai too.
