Dineout GIRF – A paradise for foodies


Food is and will always be the thing that everybody loves and connects with. We are happy? We eat! We are sad? We eat! We are stressed? We eat! Basically food is the answer to every question, every emotion.  If you follow me on my social media channels, (If not, why not?! You can follow me on instagram HERE, Facebook- HERE) you would have seen that I am among one of the top 5 fashion bloggers of Chennai. It was a great feeling and I had to celebrate this joyous occasion. And to my happiness, Dineout was hosting GIRF (Great Indian Restaurant Festival). What’s that?

DINEOUT is an app which is basically a directory of restaurants with menus, photos and reviews. What makes it better than other food apps? It facilitates table booking, payment via app and to top it all, they have great offers at best of the restaurants and many cashback offers. They are hosting GIRF in February for about 10 days. They curated offers at best of the restaurants in your city and made food more exciting. They had flat 50% off on food bills to set menus at discounted prices. What’s more? If you paid via the app, you got cashback, which just meant, more and more food.

I had to give in and indulge in some yummulicious food and celebrate my success with my family. It was like everything was in place. I had heard about Moti Mahal Tandoori trail from a friend and wanted to try out the food there. Honestly, I was excited about the decor and was very excited to visit the place but I didn’t expect much from the food. Partly because I am a vegetarian and secondly, Chennai has really bad north india, mughlai food. But boy was I wrong! I had one of the best dinners in Chennai.

We ordered for paneer malai tikka, paneer makhni, dal makhni, vegetable dum biriyani and breads. Let me start by saying that the paneer tikka stole our hearts. It was soft and yummy and marinated perfectly and grilled to perfection. The chutney that was served with the tikka was the perfect companion for the paneer tikka. Paneer that melts in mouth, literally! The meal followed by main main course. I need not rave more about the paneer, will definitely add that the gravy of paneer makhni was flavourful and reminded me of my days in Delhi. Dal makhni was well simmered and cooked with lots of butter (Living up to the name, ‘makhni’). We finished our dinner with biriyani. Truth be told, we were full even before we could finish the biriyani. This pretty much gives you an insight about the quantity of food. But the biriyani smelled and looked delicious and was calling our names. We had to dig in to it! Let me put this straight, we did not leave a grain of rice behind. We were in a state of foodgasm.

While we all raved about the food, the bill came in. No, that did not wipe the smiles off our face. In fact we were extremely happy to see the bill. Our bill was about 1500 INR and since we had taken the flat 50% off on the food bill deal, we paid 750 INR approx. Are you kiddin’ me! Just 750 bucks for so much of food. The ambiance, the service, the food, everything was perfect.

If you thought, Moti Mahal Tandoori Trail, Anna Nagar Chennai is not the place for you because you are a vegetarian, you are wrong buddy. A good menu with delicious food is calling your name.

I already visited the place again and made my friends buy the deal and made sure they try the food from that place.

Thank you Dineout for a great experience. Guys, you need to download the app now! I am in love with this app. Trust me, you won’t regret it.

    This is in regards to the last paragraph in your blog.

    You asked and i quote ” Will i revisit this place again?”

    You replied by saying you already visited the place many times.

    My question – Why did you not review the place the first time you went to the place?
    It should be beyond fashion and food.
