Posted by Oracle9 on February 14, 2008 - Filed under: Member Talks

Literally meaning to eat (khaana) and to drink (peena), this Northern Indian restaurant uses colourful fabrics, unique coasters and placemats and tasteful paintings in its warm and cosy interior. Wooden floors, floor to ceiling windows add to the ambience. Guests can choose to dine al fresco on the patio or the Bollywood inspired interior.

Khaana Peena which means eat (khaana) and drink (peena), recently moved to a new outlet in Plaza Mont' Kiara after two years of operating in Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas.

The menu features a range of Northern Indian dishes with the addition of regional specialities. Diners can choose from the wide selections of soups, appetisers, salads, barbequed meats, breads, vegetables, rice, deserts and yoghurts. Each dish is also specially prepared the authentic North Indian way so an original taste is guaranteed.

There are the timeless favourites like the Tandoori Chicken which is succulent and well marinated, stuffed Naan breads such as the Paneer (cottage cheese) stuffed Naan and meat Naans stuffed with minced lamb, beef or chicken and Nasi Briyani.

There are also some unusual creations such as the Peshwari Kofta - minced meatballs simmered in thick delicious gravy and Khaana Peena’s special BBQ platter which consists of spicy kebabs, garlic chicken tand garlic chicken tikka which is served with condiments of yogurt and mint.

Recommended items include the Murg Salad (chicken salad) which consists of shredded spiced chicken tossed with vegetables, Kadai Panneer – a spicy cottage cheese delicacy of Northern India which is cooked in a kadai (frying pan) or the Mahiamritsani - authentic fish recipe which is prepared in Amritsani style.

In addition, there is the mutton (Gosht) and chicken (Murg) briyani which comes with generous servings of succulent pieces of meat mixed with the rice concoction. Then there is Khaana Peena’s kebab platter, which is a tempting mixture of chicken, lamb and fish kebabs.

For dessert, the Mango Kulfi is highly recommended. This dessert is made from pure milk and Indian mangos.

To add variety, a new breakfast menu has been introduced recently and this features traditional breakfasts that include authentic creations often partaken by Northern Indians.

To accompany the food, Friday nights offer a Variety Musical Extravaganza performed by established musicians. On Sunday, there are games and entertainment as well as the “Eat-All-You-Can-Menu” set at a reasonable price. “Tambola” (a simple number game very much like Bingo) is played every Sunday night and guests are encouraged to participate.

A separate menu solely for beverages "Chai" features a range of drinks and highly recommended are yogurt and fruit blends as well as spicy teas.
