HAHAHA I know, a different Jem, Gem, but when I first saw this restaurant what my cousin recommended, Jem and the holograms came to mind.
Gem serves Indian, but I'm not sure if it's northern or southern. How to differentiate? Gem is located a few shops away from the KL Sentral monorail station.
Anyway, I tasted the most unique drink here. The Neer Muro, (RM4) a delicate butter milk flavored with ginger, coriander and curry leaves. The drink was sourish, fragrant and spicy. Really weird blend of smell and taste which I could not accept. But the more I drink it, the more I like it. But still, I don't think this drink is for those who are not born with adventurous taste buds.
Go for the flavored lassi (RM6.50) instead. My cousin ordered the rose water flavor out of the mango, pineapple and banana. That tasted really refreshing.
... and the green dipping sauce that came with it. I was too busy gossiping ;p and getting updates from my cousin that I forgot to ask what it was. I have no idea what the green stuff was. Wasn't spicy.
The garlic naan (RM3.90) was alright.
The beriani rice. I always thought they should call this nasi berwarna-warni (colorful rice) because of the color.
Mutton rogan josh (RM13.90), curried lamb meat prepared with aromatic spices flavored with rogan-kashmiri style. The spices on this was really heavy. There was a really strong clove aroma to this. ..maybe way too much clove for my liking. I couldn't stand the smell after a while.
Chicken dahiwala (RM13.90), morsels of boneless chicken marinated in yogurt (curd) and cooked with ground spice, rich and thick gravy. I preferred this to the mutton. Spicy, which can be toned down my mixing more yogurt in the sauce.
Yogurt is actually nice by itself.
Spinach with chunks of cheese (RM7). This was my favorite. Looks all smashed, which that was how it was, like baby food. But this is really good stuff.
Overall dinner was really filling. We over ordered and couldn't finish everything on the table.
