Food Review: Awesome Awadh

Had it not been for the name, this eatery would have been just another stall on Sahar Road, but Awesome Awadh is meant to be the first Lucknowi food joint in Andheri East. The owner, Asad, has a day job – but running a restaurant is in his blood. His family owns a popular one in Lucknow, from which Asad has brought in his staff.

With kakori kababs not on offer (they’re just softer seekh kababs, I’m told), the chefs at Awesome Awadh let you have half portions of dishes if you want to try everything. The galawati kababs have more masala than they should, to make them last longer because it’s only in Lucknow where kababs get sold like vada pavs in Mumbai. The shammi kababs are made of chicken and are free of animal fat here at Awesome Awadh.

The khada masala is cooked beforehand, making the biryani too dry for my liking, and at Awesome Awadh you get a bowl of korma with it, which is also an excuse to call for their Mughlai paratha. You can also have one of the curries, which aren’t typical Mumbai fare, or settle for a spicy chicken/mutton stew.

Awesome Awadh is at Koldongari on Sahar Road in Andheri East.
