Dil Pasand generously invited me. To try out their new Iftar set menu along with a guest. As a result, I took advantage of the opportunity to visit Whitechapel over the weekend with my Mrs to see how it was. Additionally, I was blown away by the food's authenticity, and the taste was delectable. What's more, the Rooh Afza drink was refreshing. As well as being a popular drink among the South Asian population. This was included in the set menu.

I planned my visit on a Saturday evening shortly before Ramadan began. As a result of this restaurant collaboration. The bottom floor was cleared and available only to us. Therefore, I took advantage of the occasion to record as much content as possible.

The interiors downstairs looked appealing, one of the reasons I agreed to pay a visit. In addition, the way everything was presented made a feel like you're at a wedding. In particular, the outstanding part was the cuisine and presentation. Everything arrived at once as per request. Allowing me to shoot good photographs in one shot. Furthermore, the treatment we received was excellent, as we were treated and cared for throughout my stay.

As a result, we stayed for about an hour and a half. This was more than enough time. Especially with the quantity of food offered. I was able to pack the food for home. As it was eventually consumed by my parents. I truly enjoyed all of the dishes provided, everything was delicious. Nihari and Drumsticks were my personal favourites.

Gola Kabab with Lacha Paratha

I highly recommend choosing this dish, if you visit.

Bihari Boti with Rumali Roti

Besides, taking a small bite of this. As I was tempted by the Nihari and other dishes. However, when I did have a bite or so, I thought it was a little tangy, but the meat tasted fantastic, especially with the Roti offered.

Bihari Boti is a meat cubes in the authentic original recipe of Behari Boti with thin flatbread, red onions & special green chutney.

Pani Puri

Although, this dish is not on the Ramadan set menu. In any case, my wife enjoys this dish wherever we go. As a result, I ordered this item separately. I thought it was pretty tasty with the different sauces on top. When poured over the puri, it creates a wonderfully delectable dish to tuck into.
