Do you like the feel of sand under your feet, the smell of fruit flavored hukkahs, the beautiful Morrocan and Arabic designs with lamps and little cabanas for a cozy gathering with your family and friends?
Well, if you are in Morocco or Saudi Arabia, then its no problem! But if you are in Mumbai, then you are in luck!
We (I, Murad, my little one, Timsi, Sameer and Ruveer, their little one) just went for an impromptu dinner the other night to Koyla restaurant, which has all the things I described above.
It was lovely. Though its seriously getting hot here, the open air restaurant which is on the last floor of a small building, was a pleasant surprise. They had lots of fans going around, so I did not feel the heat. Also, the ambiance was so inviting. You just wanted to relax there. But with two little toddlers, we managed to get some pleasant moments in between.
The kids had the most fun, playing, rolling in the sand.
The food was good, we ordered veg platter, dal makhani, butter chicken (yummy), and assorted breads. The butter chicken was definitely the best. The breads got a little chewy. The dal was good, not too spicy or oily.
The food was moderately priced.
I guess, being a Sunday night, it was rather difficult to get a good place to sit, but we waited, and we finally got a little tent of our own with a nice big table, and comfortable cane chairs.
All in all, a good night.
It has another location at Colaba. I dont have the address for it though.
This one is situated near the Infiniti Mall, in Andheri.
I would rate this restaurant easily 4 out of 5.
