For almost 40 years, Bukhara has been providing entertainment for celebrities and sports legends, such as Roger Federer and Arnold Schwarzenegger, without significantly altering its cuisine. The dining area in the ITC Maurya has stone walls and log-top tables, which contrast with the sophisticated cuisine. Serving up regional specialities from the untamed North West of India, an open kitchen lets patrons witness cooks expertly skewer meat and vegetables cooked over a tandoor. There is no silverware given to maintain the frontier atmosphere. Rather, customers are encouraged to use their bare hands to dismantle dishes like murg tandoori, a whole chicken marinated in yoghurt, garlic, and spices. Its dahl Bukhara is legendary; many attempt to imitate it but never quite manage to reach its level of excellence.
