Situated in one of the residential streets of Yelahanka, ‘Maa da Dhaba’ offers mouthwatering North Indian food. This place, owned by Suboth Goyal, was started in August 2014. The manager Harsh Ranjan says that the restaurant has received a positive response ever since. 

    The kitchen run by around 7 to 8 chefs is headed by Laxman Gowda, who says that the food is as authentic as one would find it in the North.  Some of the dishes that are much sought-after are ‘Butter chicken’, ‘Paneer butter masala’, ‘Dal makhni’, ‘Kadai paneer’ and not to forget, the ‘matka lassi’. 

Starters like ‘Honey chilli potatoes’, ‘Hara bhara kabab’ and Classic chilli chicken’ are also delicious.

The ‘Chicken spring rolls’ are also worth a try.  The ‘Aloo paratha’, ‘Chicken biryani’, ‘Tandoori chicken’, ‘Chinese fried rice’, ‘Egg masala’ and several other spicy curries make people want to go back for more.  The ‘garlic naan’ and the ‘cheese naan’ are good to go with any curry the place offers. However, the restaurant can work on the taste of the ‘Gobi paratha’ and ‘Shahi paneer’. When asked for the secret ingredient that spices up the dishes, Laxman Gowda says, “It’s the magic of the hands.”

“The ‘rabdi’ is a favourite dessert among the customers and we have got many compliments for it,” says Harsh.

One of the other popular items here is the ‘kullad lassi’.  It comes in a glass-sized kullad that has never failed to satisfy any ‘lassi’ lover.

The ambience is decent with a polite staff. It provides a good family environment. The food is worth the money and definitely worth a try if you’re in the neighbourhood and love North Indian Food. Overall, the food at the restaurant is a treat for your tastebuds when you’re craving some really authentic, spicy Punjabi and North Indian food.
‘Maa da Dhaba’ is located on 791, MIG, 2nd Stage, MD Road, Yelahanka.
