Mutton Rogan Josh (Php 499)
A lamb dish curry, RICH’s Rogan Josh is one of the dishes foodies have been talking about. Usually made with spices like fennel seeds and dry ginger, this spicy curry is perfect for any day with their plain naan (Php 119).
Murgh Makhani (Php 439)
Best served with cheese naan (Php 199), RICH’s Murgh Makhani is something you will soon think of even in your dreams. Known also as the Indian Butter Chicken, the dish is among the best known Indian foods all over the world because it could be made mild and especially creamy!
Chicken Korma (Php 479)
For heavy eaters, we recommend their chicken korma. The dish traditionally consists of meat, vegetables braised with yogurt while the stock and spices produce a thick sauce is surely what dreams are made of. This is best enjoyed with plain Basmati rice (Php 179).
RICH’s other branch is in Mall of Asia By the Bay while this 4-story building in General Luna St, Poblacion, Makati. Great for late night hangouts and, you guessed it, curries.
