“You do not need a silver spoon, to eat good food”-Paul Prudhomme
Unabashed and filled to the brim with content, i revoke the snuggled memory of a dinner filled with laughter, conversations & good food.
About Tiger Trail :
The restaurant is located within “Ramada Hotel”. The concept of the restaurant is more like an anamnesis of the bygone era of British India. So, they say that the English officers and the Indian kings went on trails across the subcontinent to hunt for the prized tiger. The hunt took them to places such as Kabini, Kanha, Ranthambore, Jim Corbett & Bandhavgarh. And, that spatial mapping of where the tigers were found, was deemed to be the “Tiger Trail”.
The restaurant, hence celebrates the cuisine from the regions of the tiger trail, promising on taking you for a palate trail as well. Where your search for different kinds of cuisines, reaches salvation.
Decor & Ambiance :
The decor is your classic colour theme of teak brown & splotches of colour here and there. Tastefully done interiors, prepare your anticipation for a good meal. The ambiance, is relaxed & perfect for an unwind.
The staff are well groomed with smiles and an ever pleasing nature, ready to help you whenever necessary.
The Grub Story :
And, here we come to the la chose principale .
- Turai & Muttar Shorba : An extremely mild & flavourful broth, that warmed you up in minutes. The subtle flavour of Turai, came across & made its mark.
- Dahi ke Kabab : A soft & extremely mushy tikkis made out of hung curd, flavoured with spices. Couldn’t stop at one.
- Flavoured Lassi with Chaat Pockets : A medley of different kinds of sweet lassi paired with little pockets of Chaat. A mini Chaat, if you may.
- Corbett Se Aloo : Baby potatoes tossed with cumin seeds, sesame & peanuts. Worth a try, for the deep flavours.
- Vilayati Tarana Kabab : An assortment of delicious broccoli, babycorn & Paneer kababs. The flavours were spot on and the smooth play of spices, made this my favourite.
- Paneer Dumpling Makhani : The little pearls of Paneer, dispersed in a rich tomato based makhani, with an enviable rich consistency, has you reminiscing about it, even when you are back home.
- Assortment of Naans : The ajwaini naans were by far, my most favourite.
Here are a few glimpses of the non vegetarian dishes, devoured by mes amis:

Verdict : The restaurant, is an excellent example of good hearty food, coupled with easy on the pocket prices. Dishes are true to their origins and have different flavours to each one of them. The Tiger Trail gets onto my must visit list.
