Nihari Inn Boat Basin Review by Sadaf Farooqui
Doing good business since many years on the Boat Basin strip in Clifton is a moderately-priced restaurant called Nihari Inn.
On the night we paid it a visit, it had rained heavily, so the outer baithak's of tukhts and gao takya's that have become a landmark of this strip of eateries, had been wound up, with tents erected in their place. But the good news isthe restaurant has an open air terrace upstairs. Coming to the menu, this is reasonably priced and offers all variety of typical, popular desi food.
The economic rates of the restaurant food combined with sustained good quality gives Nihari Inn an edge above its overpriced counterparts tucked away in remote corners of Defence. At last we ordered their single serving of sumptuous Mutton Kunna priced at Rs 170, along with a single serving of plain Beef Nihari, priced at Rs 160, have to saythe serving size was huge. We had to get the leftover packed to take back home. But the Fluffy hot naans were the best accompaniment to the meat curries. In the end we ordered Kulfi in a clay pot priced at Rs 30, on the other hand, was a complete disaster. Avoid it, but the kheer was great in taste and changed our mood.
Verdict: All in all, dining at Nihari Inn is a pleasurable experience, because of the good quality of the food combined with economical rates.
Please note: prices above may have changed, kindly double check on that.
