After settling on rue de Lauriston for 2 years, Mayfair Garden has opened on 33 rue de Longchamp this past August. Of you’re looking for a tasty Indian restaurant mixing delicious dishes and sophisticated setting, this is an address likely to delight you.
Running the kitchen, chef Nawaz Noman who worked with Christian Le Squer and Yannick Alleno at Le Pavillon Ledoyen. After a stop in London where he worked alongside chef Yogesh Datta, he joins Mayfair Garden kitchen in Paris where he develops his travel inspirations.
Beautiful tables, a sober yet elegant décor, here’s a very lovely setting to take our taste buds on a trip. Let’s start with some saffron and cardamom Lassi to sweetly awaken the senses.
As a starter, we go for the vegetable chaat samosa. A vegetarian starter served with chopped onions, chickpeas, pomegranate and homemade chutney. A lovely blend that is crispy, smooth and fresh.
As for my partner, he tries the Paneer cheese tikka, Indian cheese mixed with spices and seared in tandoor and served with a tasty onion fritter and sour and spicy condiment.
Then, the main course. I fall in love with the Lamb Nihari, a festive and traditional dish based on super tender lamb that we eat in one bite. Served with rice and exquisite cheese and garlic naan, it’s such a delight.
Across the table, my sidekick goes for the Chicken Dum Biryani marinated in star anise and served with a side of saffron/curry rice. Under its surprising puff pastry crust and served with a delicious curry sauce, the dish makes a splash.
In other words, if you love flavors and spices, this is a nice Indian restaurant to discover.
