Margherita – Sheikh zayed Road

I wanted to try this restaurant since a long time, after checking out their menu and food picutures on social media and Zomato.

They are located right beside the Axiom Care on Shk Zayed Rd. Closest metro station is financial centre metro station.

I visited this branch on a weekday with friends and it was not busy at the time we visited (around 4pm). This branch has an outdoor as well as indoor seating. We preferred indoor due to windy weather.

We ordered for a margherita pizza and we selected one of the pasta dishes from the “Today’s chef recommendation” board. .

image

The pasta (Rigatoni All’ Amatriciana) was cooked in tomato sauce and topped with paremsan cheese. It actually included beef/bacon as well, but we asked them to make it vegetarian. The pasta was cooked perfectly, but the pasta had too much of a tangy tomato taste even though it had cheese mixed in it. It could have been better, i guess.

The pizza was cooked in a thin crust and was absolutely delicious. It had the perfect amount of mozarella cheese and tomato sauce. One of the best margherita pizzas i’ve ever had!

We were also served with grated parmesan cheese, seperately, to use as a topping. It actually made the pizza taste even more delicious!

We were 3 of us and the two dishes weren’t that filling for us as the pizza crust was too thin. These two dishes could be enough and filling for two people.

The prices are really high according to the quantity served but it does deserve a one time visit atleast! 🙂

For main course, we ordered for fish curry, chicken lababdar, paneer tikka masala and dal makhani. For rotis we ordered kulcha, cheese naan, tandoori roti and rumali roti.

The fish curry was yummy and had a perefect taste. It had a red gravy and was cooked with perfect spices.

Chicken lababdar was as good with soft pieces of chicken and topped with melted butter.

Paneer tikka masala also had soft pieces of paneer with delicious gravy.

Dal makhani had the true punjabi taste and i loved it!
