If you wonder how Italian and Indian cuisine mix together tastes, head on to Knowhere at Bangsar.

Because pasta is indeed essential to them, this Deepavali, Knowhere Bangsar is taking Italian food to the next level by merging Indian spices and flavours in different types of kinds of pasta.

From ravioli to fettuccine, the pastas are drenched in lip-smacking sauces that’ll definitely haunt your taste buds.

The Taste Test

There are six dishes on the Namaku Pasta Thaa Mukkiyam menu:

  1. Kingdom Of Bahubali (RM38.80++)
  2. Madras Ponniyin Selvan (RM38.80++)
  3. Tanhaji Pits His Knife Into A Ravioli Of Mushrooms (RM34.80++)
  4. Padmavaat Penne (RM38.80++)
  5. Asoka Seducktions (RM36.80++)
  6. Bajirao Mastani, Tandoori Slayers (RM32.80++)

We tried all of them and were blown away by every presentation they gave.

The Kingdom of Bahubali is a Seabass pasta served in thick Mumbai-style curry. The seabass is really fresh and actually goes really well with the creamy and savoury curry. It kinda looks like Curry Mee the first glance but the taste is definitely one of a kind.

Next, their Madras Ponnioyin Selvan features squid ink spaghetti with curried tiger prawns. The tiger prawns were indeed juicy and cooked to perfection. You can taste a hint of coconut in the rich curry and they go well with the slightly salty squid ink pasta.

The Tanhaji Pits His Knife Into A Ravioli Of Mushrooms is a mushroom-stuffed ravioli dish that comes with a creamy tomato curry sauce. This is made for vegetarians but we ourselves couldn’t get our hands off of the sauce when we first tasted it.

Following that, we also got a taste of the fragrant Chettinad mutton curry with penne pasta called the Padmavaat Penne. The sauce is rather runny but the mutton was indeed tender and succulent. This one has an exceptionally strong curry flavour to it, so heads up.

Asoka Seducktions (we love the pun) features Kerala-style seared smoked duck on squid ink pasta. At first glance, we thought it was Salted Egg Buttermilk sauce but it was more of a Masak Lemak Cili Api kinda taste. It’s creamy and smoky at the same time.

If you love chicken tandoori, then Bajirao Mastani, Tandoori Slayers is for you. Fettucine is served with a milky tomato sauce. The chicken breast is a bit dry but you can pair it with the thick sweet sauce to make it all better.

Besides that, we also tried six of their mocktails which are all fresh and zesty, perfect for complimenting their creamy dishes.

The Verdict

All in all, among the six plates of pasta, we’d definitely recommend getting the Kingdom Of Bahubali, Madras Ponniyin Selvan and Asoka Seducktions. They’re creamy, savoury and tantalizing at the same time. We don’t mind coming back to get another taste of these haunting flavours.

Besides that, every curry is thick and creamy except for the Padmavaat Penne which is quite liquidy. Padmavaat Penne is actually perfect for those mutton curry lovers who love the salty and savoury taste of it.

But if you’re a vegetarian, we definitely recommend the Tanhaji Pits His Knife Into A Ravioli Of Mushrooms. The Ravioli are a bit floury, but the sauce saves the day as it is superbly addictive and savoury.
