Entry into this chic restaurant transports you to the rugged terrain of the North West Frontier Province. The plush décor, ambience and even the music, blend harmoniously to create the effect, albeit a bit obtrusively. The menu in the form of a tabloid is impressive. Exotic kababs, shorbas, sea food, speciality curries and desserts are on offer. No drinks are on the menu though. Although a haven for carnivores, it does offer plenty of vegetarian options. The food is robust, rich and spicy, representative of the region. However, the famed chicken dum biryani disappoints as it appears to have been rustled up hurriedly. Nizami keema kaleji, shikampur kabab, dal khiva and khubaani ka meetha thankfully compensate and are a must-try. The kababs are flavourful and the aromas fill the air even before you take the first bite. Grilled to perfection, the kababs are well-marinated and succulent. Some dishes you ask for are not available. The service is prompt and the staff affable.
The food was good and over all tasty, however it is not something that I'd travel long for . Quite suited to a casual evening dinner with family and friends if every you suddenly found out, there's no food at home! Or just an impromptu plan. We had the Galawati Kabab, now this was the best we had that evening and it's the only dish worth mentioning. We also had the tandoori pomfret, which was suggested by the chef of the restaurant and even though I objected that it's pomfret he assured me that it would be delicious and on that assurance we ordered it. But just as we had suspected it did not even come close to being properly marinated and flavoursome. So next time do give it a pass. The other dishes were just about ok and you could basically try any. The Ambience: 4/5 Again here you see the effort of the creators to bring in the authenticity and an example where that enthusiasm has taken them a little too far. There's nothing that stands out and the structure and layout is probably just like any other North Indian, Peshawari, etc. places. However I am biased towards Murals and so I've pushed the score up. A little more attention to detail rather than focusing on getting it all in would go a long way. The Service: 4.5/5 Now, you would be surprised that the chef's selected dish did not pan out but still I gave such a high ranking? Well for one the Tandoori Pomfret was a let down but the graciousness with which they handled my complaints about it says a lot about the servers there. A thumbs up and if I do go back here it's just for that. There wasn't a moment when we felt lost, or waited necessarily or didn't simply have someone to talk to about the food. Well managed and great people. (We also got a free dessert for pining our location on Facebook at that moment, and I'd never done it before.). The Price: 3/5 Would say this place is a little pricy for the experience and food. The food wasn't worth the price and it felt more like a place to stuff up and the quantities didn't support that too.
We booked for a table of 6 and on arrival we were asked for water. We asked if the water was filtered and they said no. We ordered for bottled water and at 75 rs . Even a Udupi these days have an RO filter. We ordered for a chicken as we waited for our group to arrive. The shorba arrived in no time and it was mediocre. We after sifting through their torn menu which is priced exorbitantly decided to order only for the waiter to tell us that all 4 starters ( which seemed the best) that we chose weren’t not available. We decided to pay the bill and move on.
It was a Valentines Day and we wanted to eat something really tasty and Indian. We were 3 of us and being a small eater we just ordered Chakori Murgh & Chicken Dum Biriyani. We found the food really yummm and really satisfying. This is my 3rd time here and I have always been really happy with Food, & Service. The most attractive part is, you get all kind of chutneys with your food and that adds great value to the experience. Nitesh took very good care of us and made sure we are comfortable. Feedback- Music is just OK, needs some improvement & some strong fragrance was there, which really bothered me for a while. See you Soon! :)
The restaurant promises authentic north west frontier food, which is largely the food from Afghanistan, Uzbekistan or more commonly known as Punjabi or Mughlai food. Non-veg options are much better than the veg options. Try Chicken Afghani they were great. Avoid veg soups - they are nothing but ready to cook/serve soups.
Lamb and chicken kebabs were very well done and tasty. So 5 out of 5 for kebabs. Rest of the food was good too but not as good as the kebabs. I Would recommend that waiters be asked to use deodorant. Other than that overall Experience was very pleasant.
Though India is quite exciting on its own sometimes we do need something to spice things up for us gastronomically. Our eyes are tired of those modern beige regularity that we see in the décor all the time. We are ready for something unexpected and new. Mumbai’s fine dining scene has become stagnant in so many ways, even when it comes to North Indian cuisine, which is most tried and tested cuisine in the country. But with ‘Khiva’ we have high hopes. The restaurant is part of Phoenix Market City in Bandra Kurla Complex and is one of the charming places to dine in Mumbai city. Be it families or corporates, the place is buzzing with all kinds of clientele all the time. Khiva gets filled quickly, book a table prior to visiting.
Khiva is a carnivore’s haven with amazing variety of kebabs and curries that dominates its North Indian menu.<./b> The moment you step across the threshold your senses are bombarded with delicious mouth-watering aromas and a sight that takes your breath away. Khiva is quite within range of an average epicurean and for medium price one can enjoy a plethora of biryanis and kebabs. Attack the menu with, chowki ki tikki, jhinga balaai ka, chandni kebab, mahi afghani, hare chole aur drakh ke kebab, barra kebab lazeez, tandoori pomfret, peshawari paneer tikka, zaituni murgh ke seekh, khumb khazana and Baluchi boti kebab. Feast on curries like, desi dum ka murgh, meloni tarkari, nalli ka salan, paneer makhani, lahori ghost, dal khiva, murgh hara pyaaz masala, jhinga rada masala, corn methi palak, nizami keema kaleji and Patiala shahi ghost.
Save some appetite for Khiva’s yummy dessert selection featuring rich delicacies like, zaffrani angoori rasmalai, phirni, kulfi laccha rabri, elaichi jamun, khubhani ka meetha, lychee ki tehree and baked anjeer halwa. Stepping into Khiva is like stepping into Central Asian frontier with their wide colourful murals of regional men on their horses gracing main wall. Each wall is a homage to the heritage where will to live is tough and breath-takingly alive. Under a network of thin wooden beams lies a vast dining spread of formal tables and booths. A chandelier hanging from the ceiling adds the touch of glamour. Khiva has a touch of exoticness we like. Visit if you are looking for something special.
