A specialty not to be missed is Murtabak (flat bread). Made at the show kitchen at the entrance of the restaurant, the murtabak comes stuffed with a choice of minced chicken, beef, mutton or vegetable fillings. Served with a simple helping of pickled onions, the pan-fried murtabak is simply delectable when paired with a bit of curry chicken and nutty dalcha – a lentil curry infused with herbs and spices.
