Review of The Royal Afghan

The Royal Afghan
Ranked #6 of 24 Restaurants in Cansaulim
Price range: US$225 - US$3 100
Description: After a 35-year stint in the garden city of Bengaluru, ITC Hotels’ award-winning outdoor dining concept, Royal Afghan, establishes its second abode on the shores of Goa, at the ITC Grand Goa Resort & Spa. Perched on multi-level decks, alongside the Arossim beach, with panoramic views of the Arabian Sea, the outdoor barbecue and grill outlet will feature robust flavours from the Tandoor and fresh bounty from the sea, cooked to perfection in clay ovens and over sizzling grills. The ambience bears an elegant, yet minimalistic look with earthen tableware, reminiscent of the rustic charm of the dining experience. The fare comprises a wide selection of Kebabs, for vegetarian and non-vegetarian diners and fresh seafood presented in the ‘Catch of the Day’, grilled to perfection and served with a choice of marinades. ITC Hotels has been at the forefront of showcasing the diverse culinary traditions of India through its Indian cuisine showcase.

We were staying with itc goa and planned one of our dinner at the royal afghan. It was one of the best meals we had in our enitre stay. The beach view and polite staff gave us an amazing experience. The delicious food was a cherry on the top. Would recommend everyone to visit the resturant once.

The restaurant at the seabeach front offers nice grilled food. If any guest loves to have non spicy non chili food, it is not the right place. All the grilled food is pre-marinated with spices and chili. Food quality is good and the ambience at the sea beach is enjoying.

Hello friends I am here to tell you little about The Royal Afghan @ ITC Goa.

ITC is known for their warmth in welcoming guests. Atithi Devo Bhavo and that's exactly you experience in ITC Goa too.

We were warmly welcomed by Mr. Godfred at the main lobby and was offered welcome drinks to asked to be seated till he organized a baggi for us to go till The Royal Afghan which is my the beach with an outstanding view.

@ The Royal Afghal, we were welcomed by the guest relation lady who was extremely polite and asked us our preference of table - that really touched our hearts. Normally, it's the associates of that particular outlet decided the tables for guests but ITC is different.

We were attended by Mr. Saransh the outlet manager and Mr. Dhananjay who took excellent care of us starting from our drinks, getting us our starters to suggesting what we should try and finally serving us our lunch. Excellent young energetic chap. Thank you Mr. Dhananjay and Mr. Saransh.

Let me thank Ms. Mandira who is the president manager of the hotel and took out time to come to royal afghan and meet up with us. We are touched. Thank You Ma'am

Never to forget to thank Mr. Balani who is the GM of the property. You have an excellent team. Thank You sir for the wonderful sunday afternoon and making us feel at home.

Thank You ITC

Cheers
