This quaint little restaurant will give you a feel of what authentic “Kashmiri Pandit Cuisine” is all about. Kashmiri Hindus have their own cuisine, which is surprisingly quite different from the Kashmiri Muslims. There is an absence of garlic; tomato, onion, egg and chicken and it comprises of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian preparations. There is also a dominant use of yoghurt when it comes to meat dishes, changing the flavour profile of the meat completely making it tenderer due to the marination. The restaurant specializes in serving home-style food and is a popular destination among youngsters as well as the older crowd. The word “Matamaal” literally translates to your grandmother’s house, and with the warm and friendly service, one actually does feel at home. This eatery also has an in-house bakery, which makes fresh baked Kashmiri bread like 'Lavasa', 'Czot', 'Shirmal', 'Katlam' and so on. On my recent visit, I tried the 'Kashmiri Rajma', this dish is completely different from the regular Rajma (kidney beans) you get, and the spice mix is unlike the masala, which is used to make the Punjabi version of it. The Rajma is very flavourful and pairs excellently well with a bowl of steamed rice. I also tried the mutton 'Seekh Kebab'; the meat is tender and juicy and is served along with a small portion of onion chutney, you can actually pair along Kashmiri bread with the kebabs like I did. This place is definitely worth trying.
This place rocks with authentic Kashmiri food. You get Veg as well as Non-veg food. The flavours and the method of cooking is exactly like the food cooked in Kashmir. A Must visit place for a Kashmiri food freak. They also have Kashmiri bakery shop which sells authentic Kashmiri bakery products too.
Took a chance to try out Matamaal, location wise it is on the second floor and on the first look it seemed small pushing me to have second thoughts, but since I love Kashmiri cuisine I jumped on to try it. Food is just fantastic, excellent preparations and generous portions, just about everything is right. Choose and order your breads separately, avoid the bread basket and firni. Overall a great place to eat.
One non-veg thali for two plus one plate GSTABA- excellent cafeteria. Not for high nosed. Firni not recommended. It had cost us 3500+
Well after reading so many good reviews about this restaurant we went to eat dinner at this place. This is not a restaurant just a kind of cafe, only hard chairs no couch. If you are a vegetarian then its just waste of time going there they serve stale food. Excessive heated dum aloo, salty paneer and on the top of it sugar less desert. Seriously when u ask them that there is no sugar in the firni. The simple reply you get it people these days are diabetic so no sugar. Over priced stuff, would recommend if vegetarians don’t go to this so called paradise.
The restaraunt is on the second floor and has limited seats as the area is small, but the food is really great. The Rogan Josh and the Meat balls were great. The owners are there to see everything goes well. The dry fruits with Ice Cream desert is something that has to be tried.
