Minar. I'm still not sure why it fell out of my favor, but of late I've been making pretty frequent lunchtime trips. And on one recent Friday, with Blondie in tow, I finally had the chance to try their Chicken Cilantro Special that gets such rave reviews on menupages...
I can see why this dish has it's fans. The chicken had a richly flavored cilantro sauce. A little salty for my taste, but delicious nonetheless. Menupages has a number of reviews that remark on the small portions, but I've never left Minar hungry. Between the two of us Blondie and I shared the Cilantro Chicken and a Vegetarian Combo both over rice and we added in a side of naan. Tons of food, we definitely couldn't finish it all. Minar has lots of tasty options, it's worth it to enlist a companion for a Minar outing so you can try a few things on the menu. Their chana (chickpea) curry is always good as is the Dum Aloo, Friday potato curry special.
