The exterior of this place suggests little about the place- it does not have colorful entrance like any other Indian restaurants; the newly opened Mayura Kitchen at China Street has a simple, minimalist entrance. Step in the place and you will find yourself in a sophisticatedly decorated space- with simple but tidy tables and chairs. Mayura offers an Indian-fusion menu, while it is still heavy on Indian elements, there are some non-Indian dishes like Char Hor Fun, Hokkien Char, Fish and Chips etc. As confusing as it seems, the non-Indian dishes are only available for dinners. The lunch menu only features Rice dishes with curries (Briyani, Banana Leaf etc). The place has a surprisingly cozy-clean atmosphere and the prices are unbelievably affordable, definitely worth checking out if you are up for some Indian food.

We like the fact that Mayura takes food presentation seriously. The Thali Briyani Set is a vegetarian set with a few vegetarian dishes and Papadam; the spices were bold but none of the dishes were spicy. So those who are looking forward to a sweat-inducing Indian meal might be disappointed. While the seasoning might be slightly muted for the Thali Briyani Set, the Mutton Briyani was not. It was expertly seasoned and packed with a powerful punch from the spices. The Muttom was deliciously tender and worked well with the spiced long grain rice. In addition to that, we also had a share of Mayura Chicken Varuval... which was beautifully cooked and boldly seasoned with Black Pepper. The meat was tender and every bit of it was enjoyable. We washed it down with a glass of Salt Lassi.
