Ticca Tikka is a casual dining restaurant serving some lip-smacking North Indian and Chinese cuisine along with some delectable coolers and lassi. It has its presence in a prime location of Andheri West, near City Mall, and it’s at a 7 minutes distance from DN Nagar Metro Station. Their fairly priced and outspread menu is equally divided into Vegetarian as well as Non-Vegetarian dishes. We visited after reading some great reviews about the place and it was a fulfilling dining experience in the end.
The place is extremely well lit with a string of fairy lights at the entrance which gives a pleasant vibe to the overall ambience. This casual dining restaurant has ample space with both indoor as well as outdoor seating available for the patrons. The use of warm and vibrant colors in the interiors makes the ambience lively. The music playlist is also pretty good consisting of all the latest tracks. One can even enjoy live IPL screening while having some scrumptious servings here. Overall, it’s a perfect place for a family outing.
We were served by a gentleman named Mr. Saubhagya who was courteous in his approach. He recommended us the cocktails according to our taste and preferences. We also had the company of the chef, Mr. Kamaljeet, who was extremely polite and made sure the service was prompt. He recommended us the appetizers & main course and even asked for our feedback on the delicious servings. The table was well managed and the service was impressive.
Strawberry Mojito and Kachi Kairi Mojito: These two coolers are a good choice for a hot summer day. I especially loved the Kachi Kairi Mojito more than the Strawberry Mojito, as the piquant taste of Kachi Kairi was flavorsome in all aspects and wasn’t oversweet. One can have it along with some delicious appetizers from the menu to start your meal with.
Lehsuni Paneer Tikka: The cottage cheese cubes were well marinated & cooked. It was soft and the taste of yogurt & garlic stood out. It could have been a little on the spicier end but overall the Paneer cubes, served on a skewer along with a mix of carrot and beet on the side, were toothsome.
Exotic vegetable: One can order the dish in any of the three sauces, namely, Black Pepper, Chilly Garlic and Hunan. We went with Black pepper sauce which was piquant in taste. The vegetables were extremely well cooked and were scrumptious, though the quaintly of sauce could have been reduced a little to make it less tangy. Overall, the dish came out well.
Dal Makhani and Khate Pyaaz ka Panner with Nan and Choor Choor Paratha: The mix of lentils, red kidney beans, cream, butter and a perfect blend of spices brought out the delectable taste of the authentic North Indian Dal Makhani.
When it comes to Paneer Katta Pyaz, the blend of onions with Sirka along with some herbs and spices will definitely satisfy your taste buds. The paneer slices were extremely well cooked making it soft and to have it with the Choor-Choor Paratha was the highlight of the dining experience.
I’d HIGHLY RECOMMEND both the dishes from the main course menu.
Gulab Jamun: The Gulab jamuns were soft and tasty with the right amount of sweetness. It was a perfect end to the overall dining experience.
Lastly, we had a great time here with some fine service, splendid ambience along with palatable, appetizing, and tasty food made in hygienic conditions. It’s a value for money experience and I’ll definitely recommend this place for a family outing.
