Excellent Indian restaurant serving fabulous Indian food in style

We (me and my family) had been to Dum Pukht restaurant in Markham for dinner during the summer and to be honest I was amazed by the stunning décor. We usually check the reviews on yelp or google reviews before we try a new restaurant. When we looked for Indian restaurants, this new restaurant Dum Pukht came up and the reviews were good so we wanted to check out. It was a relatively new restaurant (opened in 2014) with few tables occupied.

We started off with chat papri from the appetizers section of the menu. As mentioned in the menu it had all the flavours like the tangy and sweet taste from the tamarind chutney, mint chutney and topped with chilled yogurt. It was served cold which was perfect for a chat papri. Moving on to the main course we ordered some bread (Latcha Paratha and Missi Roti), Baingan Patiala and vegetable dum pukht Biryani. Even though it took a while to get the dishes it tasted so good that we did not mind the wait time. We requested the waiter to make the eggplant gravy spicy but it wasn’t spicy enough for us, still it tasted yummy so not a big deal. We had never seen missi roti on any of the Indian restaurant menus so wanted to give it a shot and it turned out to be a winner.

Now coming to the most exciting and fun part of the dinner, desserts!!!

They had some of the usual Indian desserts but we wanted to choose something new. We found Raspberry tartoufo to be interesting but they did not have so we chose the Chef’s signature dish Chocolate tartoufo. The portion was good to share and it just melted in the mouth. This might sound a bit exaggerating but it was by far the best dessert I have had in an Indian Restaurant.





Beautifully decorated restaurant serving nicely presented and tasty Indian food.  The one thing that I recommend from my experience is ,they could improve the service by sending the food out with less wait time. Overall I would definitely recommend this restaurant to people looking to taste good Indian food served in style.

PS: We liked the food so much that we went to Dum Pukht again (especially for the chocolate tartoufo) a couple of weeks ago  but they did not have it but still the food was good (I have posted a few pictures below) and also there were lot more people at dinner time compared to the last time we were there.
