Having coffee and dessert at an Indian restaurant, the Rang Mahal Table (Narumi Hotel) sounds like an unusual thing to do. In our defence, it was totally unintentional. We were looking for a quiet place to go for a chat after lunch and the lobby lounge at boutique Naumi Hotel looked enticing enough.
It was only after when we went in and found a place to sit that we discovered that the whole area, other than the small area right in front of the check in counter, was actually the Table by Rang Mahal restaurant. ‘Table’ is a casual version of the top notch Rang Mahal North Indian restaurant at Pan Pacific Hotel. By then, we were too lazy to try to look for another place. Once we were at rest, we tend to remain at rest. Fortunately, they had something to suit our plans.
Since we were already at the Table by Rang Mahal restaurant, we also took some pictures of the menu for future reference. Here are some pages from the menu. What was interesting to us that day was the short dessert section. One of the items there was walnut brownie and ice-cream ($12). That was what we ordered together with some coffee.
The walnut brownie took some time to prepare, but the wait was worth it. The brownie was moist, soft and very light. The generous walnut toppings added crunch to the taste. No one would have thought that we would be eating such a nice brownie in an Indian restaurant that looked like a lobby lounge.
The coffee and cappuccino cost $6 and $7 respectively. All in all, we ended up in an unexpected place but it was a pleasant experience. The staff were efficient and friendly.
