I had seen a listing of this restaurant on Zomato with some decent ratings. I had a look at the menu and it looked inviting. Plus, amid the Coronavirus pandemic, I was looking to order some food at my workplace from a restaurant that would be reliable in terms of hygiene.
Chilli Chicken Black Pepper China Box: It came in a nice big cardboard box. On top of the noodles, there was a half-fried egg. Inside there were noodles with some vegetables and chicken. The chicken was fried and tossed in Chinese sauce, so it was hard and no way close to being tender. The noodles were spicy with a lot of chilies and black peppers. I know the name of the dish itself includes black pepper but this one had whole black peppers coming in the mouth which were ruining the flavors. Overall, the taste of the dish was very good and powdered black peppers instead of the whole ones would have made this dish even better. 4/5 on taste. It cost me Rs. 313 which is slightly overpriced but as the quantity was generous, I think it is ok.
Penne in Curried Vegetable Meal box: The taste of the penne was excellent. It was perfectly cooked and great flavors of the sauce added nice taste. This was one of the best penne I have ever had. The garlic bread was decent, and the vegetables were perfect. Pastry was typical. 5/5 on taste for the penne.
Deconstructed Chicken Shawarma Mealbox: it had chicken in white sauce, potato wedges, pita bread, salad, hummus, and pastry. The chicken was tender, well-cooked, and had very good flavors with the sauce. Potato wedges were spicy, and hummus was good in taste. Everything when had together tasted great. The salad was unique and healthy. 4/5 on taste.
Nina Aunty’s Mutton Dhansak + Brown Rice: The dhansak was well cooked with super tender mutton. Brown rice had a distinct flavor and went very well with the dhansak. There was papad and chutney given along with they did not add much to the dish. 4/5 on taste.
Toofani Paneer & Dal Tadka Mealbox: It was a typical meal box with toofani paneer which was good in taste. It was flavorful but not among the best ones. 4/5 on taste.
Jalapeno Mac-N-Cheese with Parmesan Crust: It was excellent Mac-N-Cheese with very cheesy flavors, perfectly cooked macaroni, and parmesan on top. One of the best I have had. 5/5 on taste.
Lemon Butter Chili Basa: It had well-cooked basa fish, which had great flavors. It went very well with the mashed potato and white sauce. A squeeze of lime on top added a nice punch to the flavors. Sauteed vegetables were as expected. 4.5/5 on taste.
Black Label Butter Chicken + Paratha: The butter chicken was well made with a lot of tender and well-cooked chicken pieces. The taste of the butter chicken was good, but not among the best ones I have had. The quantity of butter chicken was enough to be had with 2-3 paratha but the combo only had 1 paratha which was a downer. Paratha was well cooked and soft. 4/5 on taste.
Anda Seekh Roll: A good flavored roll with fried egg on roti and seekh kebab inside. Nice flavors. Even better with the chutney. 4/5 on taste.
Social Keema Spaghetti: Spaghetti full of chicken keema, which was more like a western version than Indian chicken keema. The taste was good and likeable for anyone who likes spaghetti flavors. 4/5 on taste.
Murgh Lebanani Tikka Roll: A good chicken roll with tender chicken and good flavors. 4/5 on taste.
Juicy Lucy Mutton Burger: Unlike the name, it was not juicy, but it had good flavors. 3.5/5 on taste.
Murgh Chakori Roll; Not too different in flavors and looks from other rolls.
The Mile High Club Non Veg Sandwich: A club sandwich with 3 layers of bread with a chicken layer in between. The taste was good but not among my favourites. 3.5/5 on taste.
Goan Prawn Curry: The dish had a prawn curry, rice, papad, pickled prawns, and onions. The prawn curry was spicy and strong in flavors. The flavor of the coconut was not much strong, but the overall taste of the curry was very good. There were a few big-sized prawns in it. Rice was decent and tasted good with the curry. Papad had a nice flavor to it. Overall, a very good dish. 4/5 on taste.
Social’s Special White Chicken: It was a white chicken gravy and a medium-sized thin paratha. The chicken was well cooked, but the gravy’s taste was decent and not among the good white chicken I have had. The paratha was not enough to have with the gravy. 3/5 on taste.
Chicken Tikka and Cheddar Pizza: It was a thin crust pizza with toppings of chicken tikka and cheese. The base was a mixture of soft and crispy, but it was too chewy. The only prominent flavor in the pizza was of chicken tikka when you get it in the mouth, otherwise it was bland. Also, pizza was way too bland and made me think of adding tomato ketchup (which I never add to any pizza). Overall, an ordinary tasting chewy pizza. Do not order. 3/5 on taste.
Whistle Podu Tacos: It was chicken sukka with chapati renamed to be tacos. The chicken was well cooked and of good and punchy flavors. Taco shells (chapatis) were not too soft or hard. Overall flavors were good and tasted even better with the white sauce. 4.5/5 on taste.
Dada’s Chicken Sliders: It was having 3 small sized chicken burgers and peri peri fries. The burgers were excellent in flavors, with well-cooked and tender chicken patty, which was also juicy, and soft buns. Overall, the burgers tasted great. Fries were a nice addition. 5/5 on taste.
Overall an enjoyable experience with this restaurant and I would update this review as I order more items in the future.
Value for money: 4/5
