Umerkot serves traditional Indian and Mughal cuisine, with recipes popularized by the khansamahs or chefs from Emperor Akbar’s famed kitchen. The food here is delicious and a change from the usual Indian joints serving chicken tikka masala. The emphasis on traditional has resulted in delicately spiced food that retains its original flavour. The murgh jehangir or the chicken clear soup will warm up your soul and the murgh ki chaanp or the chicken legs marinated in lemon and cumin is wholesome and grilled. However, the real winner in Umerkot is the dum biryani – try the zafrani biryani for a taste of heaven with the murgh-e-firdaus or chicken in a rich, nutty sauce as a side dish.

The restaurant is located in a huge bungalow where the upper floors consist of service apartments and the ground floor houses the restaurant and bar. The décor is neat and simple and the restaurant is ideal for a business lunch or a family dinner. There is seating available in an outdoor covered courtyard or in the AC dining hall which has the adjoining lounge bar. There is valet parking available. Umerkot is located at #30, 80 Ft Main Road, ST Bed, Koramangala, Bangalore-34, ph:  25500426.

    Took your word for the review and went down there last Saturday. I have to say I wasn’t expecting all that much- an image posted of the restaurant at another site being the prime reason for the same. I should say the parking space didn’t do much to change the impression. But after that, I have to admit I pretty much enjoyed the experience of dining at the place. I went by your choices for the choice of meal options and came back very satisfied. Looking forward to your reviews all the more now.

  5. I am glad you had a good time… do keep visiting my blog.. and give me feedback too 🙂
