This is my second food review on Indian cuisine ever since I started this blog. I had been to Le’ Taj Restaurant when I was still in my late teens, so we could roughly guess how long ago it was. I had dinner with Jennifer this evening. It was actually our first meal together after knowing her over a lunch at Gohan Sushi Restaurant with Sister. Dinner went well and mom was surprised that we ordered four dishes when it was only the two of us having the meal.
I suggested Rajah’s Restaurant & Catering at Batu Satu since Jennifer said that she only knew two famous Indian restaurants in Brunei – Le’ Taj Restaurant and Tandoor.com. After narrowing down few Indian places, we were down with Le’ Taj Restaurant and Rajah’s Restaurant & Catering. I gave her the benefit to choose between a grand or normal restaurant. She chose the grander one, Le’ Taj Restaurant it was then. LOL!
We met at the restaurant at about 7:30p.m. in the evening. Couldn’t decide what to order as we were spoiled with choices. We ended asking the waitress to recommend us their signature dishes.
So, here comes the food pictures …
Lamb Rogan | B$7.00
The lamb portion was reasonable enough in my opinion. Some of the lamb chunks were tender but some were a little bit hard. Perhaps we left it there for too long before we finished the entire dish off. The gravy wasn’t spicy at all but flavorful. But I find it to be a little bit salty for my liking.
Butter Chicken Masala | B$6.50
This was the first dish which the waitress recommended us, so assuming that it’s one of the most ordered dishes in the restaurant. The gravy tasted pretty much the same like curry to me but it’s much more creamier and smoother. The gravy tasted even more flavorful as it was cooked with butter and it goes just nicely with Pilau Rice. The chicken slices however tasted something near Chicken Satay to me. LOL!
Butter Naan | B$2.20
Naan is something like Roti Pratha but it’s much more thicker and tasted more flour-y. I liked the Butter Naan which I tried at Rajah’s Restaurant & Catering but the one I had at Le’ Taj Restaurant was not bad either. Goes well with the gravy from Butter Chicken Masala. Hahaha … xD
Pilau Rice | B$2.50
Pilau Rice is not something that I would like to eat all the time as I find it to be quite dry and perhaps not good for my digestion system? But if you mix the rice with the gravy from your main course dishes, it will still be alright.
