Legend of India: Exploring More on Indian Cuisine (Jupiter Makati)

Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines

My mom doesn't like Indian Cuisine and my little sister doesn't like spicy dishes so I was surprised to my delight that everyone was in the mood to try Legend of India one random night.

Right at the heart of the restaurant district in Jupiter Makati, Legend of India has a big glittery signage making it noticeable and easy to remember by passerby.

Inside is a simple dining area with a loud TV playing Bollywood movies.  Each table is already set up with a complete table wear and candle lights too.

By the side, there's a store where you can buy ingredients, food and also order snacks and desserts.


Vegetarian Appetizers
Samosa (120 php)
The Samosa is a triangular crunchy puffed pasty filled with vegetables.  We loved this especially with their delicious dips: Mint Water (Green) and Tamarind Sauce (Black). 

Non-Vegetarian Appetizers
chicken fingers
Chicken Fingers (160 php)
Forget about chicken nuggets cause this very crunchy Chicken Fingers with their amazing sauces will win over you anytime.

Vegetarian Lovers
vegetable curry
Vegetable Curry (260 php)
The Vegetable Curry is mixed cubed vegetables in delicious thick Indian curry sauce. 

palak paneer
Palak Paneer (280 php)
The Palak Paneer is blended spinach mixed with cottage cheese.  We all loved this!  I look forward to having more paneers.

Mutton Lovers
rogan josh
Rogan Josh (450 php)

The Rogan Josh is mutton curry.  I've always loved mutton dishes.  But, they come to me so rarely.  Between the Vegetable Curry and this, this is my clear choice. 

chicken biryani
Chicken Biryani (350 php)
The Chicken Biryani is flavorful but not too much so you can pair it well with the other dishes.

aloo paratha
Aloo Paratha (180 php)
The Aloo Paratha whole wheat flour bread stuffed with potato.  While I've had Roti Prata stuffed in cheese before, this is the first time I've had flat bread with potatoWell, it works well and I don't mind having it again even if it means twice the carbs.

pudina naan
Pudina Naan (130 php)
The Pudina Naan is flour-based flat bread topped with mint leaves.  I love this! 

Kuffi (120 php)
The Kuffi is Indian ice cream.  When I was told by the staff that they use carabao milk, I was expecting the Kuffi to be like Arce Dairy ice cream.  But it's really different.  This one is so thick that it's more of a really sweet, rough and dense like pastillas than an ice cream.  But, it is really cool.  And, it has rose syrup on it and pistachio bits.

green pista
Green Pista (120 php)
The Green Pista is really sweet pistachio pastillas topped with pistachio bits.  I would have enjoyed this had it not been too sweetened with honey.

Indian Drinks
sherbet soda mango lassi rose lassi
Sherbet Soda (120 php), Mango Lassi (120 php) and Rose Lassi (130 php)
The  Sherbet Soda or rose water soda and Rose Lassi are a bit too sweet.  But, the
Mango Lassi is perfect.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Legend of India is an awesome place to explore more of Indian Cuisine.  Despite having not a good impression of Indian dishes in the past, the family seemed to enjoy this dining experience and we're now ready to go further.
