I had a luxuriously comfortable stay at Courtyard by Marriott Ahmedabad. It’s well located in the middle of the city and well connected to the airport and railway station.
The Food –
With an Indian restaurant, a coffee shop and a multi cuisine all day dining, tantalize your taste buds at Courtyard by Marriott, Ahmedabad.
Java + (Coffee Shop) –
A place where you can impress your date or just hang out and have a good conversation, this reasonably priced coffee bar is the perfect place to unwind. The café is open 24×7! What more can you ask for ?
With the aroma of fresh coffee in the air and a well curated menu of snacks to choose from I was spoilt for choice.
I absolutely loved their After 8 mocha. Mint, hot chocolate and strong coffee make for an unbeatably delicious concoction of flavors. The all time favorite after 8 chocolate and coffee makes for a kick ass beverage. Topped with a hint of whipped cream and a pretty mint leaf this will leave you coming back for it again and again.
Pair this up with their cheese nachos and get transported to cheese heaven. Fresh, crisp tortillas topped with jalapenos, olives, caramelized onions and a cheddar cheese sauce will make your tummies happy and hearts full.
Bayleaf (Indian fine dining restaurant) –
With beautiful interiors, romantic dim lights, soft music in the background, impeccable service and deliciously rich food, this was the star of my visit to Ahmedabad.
For starters you should try the melt in your mouth dahi ke kebabs that are a perfect blend of sweet and savory.
The Angoori Paneer Tikka was beautifully marinated in spicy masalas and grilled over a charcoal tandoor.
The mushroom ki gelouti served on a wam mini naan had perfectly balanced flavours and was soft to the bite.
Main course –
Get transported to the royal kitchens of Awadh with the melt in your mouth Phaldhari koftas, mesmerizing kaali daal and warqi parathas.
The Dum Ka Paneer cooked in a rich and creamy cashew nut and tomato gravy makes for a wonderful combination with the parathas.
Do not miss the baingan ka bharta that was authentically infused with charcoal smoke and gives you that perfect aroma and flavour.
The Lucknowi subz Biryani was aromatic and sinfully delicious especially with the daal bayleaf which is one of the best kaali daals I’ve had yet.
How can you come to Ahmedabad and not have Kulfi? The malai kulfi with sweet rabdi at Bayleaf will please your sweet tooth. Give their warm stuffed gulab jamun a try too. Stuffed with kesar and pistachios, I’m sure you can’t stop at just one of these beauties.
Chef Aniruddha and his team have done a wonderful job in making Bayleaf one of the top fine dining destinations for North Indian food in Ahmedabad.
Breakfast at Momo Café –
With a large and colorful buffet spread that has something in it for everyone, you’ll be spoilt for choice on what to devour at this lovely all day dining café.
From freshly baked breads to crisp fafdas, exotic fruits to crisp dosas, gooey baked beans to spicy misal pav, creamy yogurt to lip smacking poha, get your breakfast fix at this chic café.
Overall I had a wonderful experience at Courtyard by Marriott Ahmedabad. It’s an absolute must visit the next time you’re in this vibrant city.
