Coyla – Cababs and Curries launched last week in Whitefield at Four Points by Sheraton and we attended the launch to bring to you the inside scoop. Dimly lit interiors and the smell of the tandoor pit beckon you upon arrival and whet your appetite for what is sure to be an excellent meal.
Coyla had boasted of authentic North Indian cuisine and we were ready to see if they really lived up to all the hype. We were welcomed with a delicious Chili Vodka cocktail (one of their signature cocktails) which was spicy and tangy all the same time (yes, I had more than one, I’m not ashamed). Later on, we also tried the Rum Ananas. If chaat masala in your drinks is your thing, then this cocktail is absolutely screaming your name.
The tandoor pit had been calling my name for quite a while and I just couldn’t wait for kebabs to start flowing. The Paneer Tikka Angare and the Baans Aur Singhare ke Cabab were my favorites from the vegetarian options (yes, I’m partial to veg kebabs with nuts).
Of course, the chicken cababs didn’t disappoint either. The Hazra Murgh was amazing, an absolute must-try, along with the staple Bhatti ka Murgh. Moving on to the main, the Dal Makhani surpassed all of our expectations, aptly named “Maa Rajma Makhanwali Dal” and yes, it was drowned in butter. Fresh, hot butter naans (what can I say, I love butter) made for the perfect accompaniment.
If you’re a seafood fan then try out the Malasedar Jhinga – sauteed prawns never tasted so good. While the chicken dum biryani was good, we’d recommend you stick to the Cababs and Curries for the best experience.
We ended our meal with piping hot gulab jamuns (of course we did) which were soft, flavourful and very fresh. So, if you live in the neighborhood, or are willing to go on an expedition head over to Colya for cocktails, cababs and curries – we promise they won’t disappoint!
