God Ka-By Simran

God Ka by Simran owned by actress Simran and her husband was the most talked about restaurant when it launched. It’s been on my wish list ever since but the plan to visit never materialized because of the distance. When some of us foodies were invited to check out the restaurant I was so glad that I could finally make it to this place.

It was quite a long drive from where I stay and some of us were growing impatient to reach the venue as we were informed that the queen of Southern tinsel town would be present that day.
AMBIENCE
A quaint place tucked amidst the calm surroundings of Akkarai, with a chic boutique in the ground floor and the restaurant in the first floor, God Ka done up in green and brown has a mix of Indian and Victorian interiors. The entire space looks like an artist’s retreat and is tastefully done.
SOUP
We were served a welcome drink which tasted more like Fanta topped with sliced cucumber and mango. Didn’t fancy it much. Thankfully we were served soup next. The Sabzi Shorba was creamy and packed with so lot of flavor. I enjoyed it.

STARTERS
We were served a Veg platter consisting of assorted veg tandoori tikka and kebab. Enjoyed the succulent Malai mushroom and Paneer nawabi tikka. The Subsz Seekh kebab which is minced mixed vegetables, marinated and cooked in tandoor, was another starter that I liked from the platter.

Next we were served Paneer tikka and Hara Bhara Kebab. The Hara Bhara kebab with minced palak and corns could’ve been slightly crispier.

Paneer Amritsari Tikka
The Paneer Amritsari tikka was more spicer than the nawabi paneer tikka and I enjoyed the former. The crispy fried cheese sticks served along with some fries were enjoyed by all.

DRINKS
The drinks arrived in between our starters. Some of the drinks tasted slightly concentrated. Out of all the drinks I enjoyed the Lychee Swirl and the Pineapple Mojito the best.

MAIN COURSE
The Mediterranean pizza with broccoli, capsicum, onions, sundries tomatoes and a generous topping of mozzarella cheese is a treat to pizza fanatics. I loved it. Red and green Thai curry was served along with some steamed rice and so enjoyed the latter. The Green Thai curry with a rich flavor of coconut milk, pumpkin and basil was so delicious that I helped myself to multiple servings of rice and curry.

Paneer Butter Masala
Next up was the Veg biryani. Packed with robust flavors, it was clearly the favorite dish of the day amongst the vegetarians. The Paneer butter masala was decent to go with the Lacha paratha.

The Spaghetti Alfredo was a huge let down after tasting all the above dishes. It was so bland that it literally tasted like milk.

DESSERTS
The dessert lifted my mood after the disappointing spaghetti. The strawberry panna cotta was so good that I couldn’t help myself from finishing it up entirely. It was so good that I longed to have more of it. The sizzling brownie with ice cream was just brilliant. The taste of the brownie here was unique and it tasted so fresh.
IN A NUTSHELL
Definitely worth the long drive.
