I had seen a listing of this restaurant on Zomato few months back and since than I wanted to visit this place. The reviews were so good and even the menu was looking very inviting. One fine day I planned with my friends to visit this place for their unlimited lunch as the menu was good.
The place is located on the first floor of the building near HIgh Street Phoenix mall. The place is very nicely decorated with good seating.
I told the staff that we were there to have the unlimited lunch. He gave us the menu which is listed on Zomato and Dineout.
One thing which I liked about the unlimited lunch is that it was not a buffet but a table service depending on what we order. We had 2 vegetarians among us and 6 non vegetarians.
The waiter told us that the kitchen is going to close at 3:30pm and we have to give orders before that. Initially we ordered appetisers, pav and flatbreads. Then after about 30 mins we ordered mains, salads, soup and some starters for repeat. We spent about 2 hours in this restaurant and we hated the slow service. We had ordered starters along with the pav dishes and flatbreads but they gave pav dishes, flatbreads before only and the real starters came very late. I had ordered Chermoula grilled chicken, fish in chili basil dry and burmese curry noodles which never came. Spaghetti which was part of the initial order and I had asked him to bring it along with the starters came along with the mains. We even predicted that they gave us pav and bread dishes initially to fill us up so that we would not eat other good items which might be costly for the restaurant. This way the menu was randomly brought to us in such a manner that we were not able to enjoy anything completely.
There were times when our table was empty for 10-15 mins even after making at least 5 orders which made us irritated. Not that the restaurant was full and they were not able to serve us. The restaurant was almost empty with only 3-4 tables with the small crowd sitting.
This eventually leads to 8 mains coming to our table at once, by the time when we were irritated. This leads to wastage of some food as well. A better way to serve would be to let the customers know which items are going to come in how many portions when they will come and will it be enough for the people sitting on the table. The starters were so much low in the quantity that we ended up ordering a lot of mains which we were not even able to enjoy.
Also in the desserts, we had asked him to bring 5 portions of each brownie and cheesecake respectively but he only brought 4.
Caesars Salad: Good in freshness and taste with fried bread giving a nice flavor to the salad. 4/5 on taste.
Greek Salad: Decent salad with slight hint of cheese flavor. 3.5/5 on taste.
Pina Colada: One of the good ones with great flavors. 4.5/5 on taste.
Virgin Mojito: Good in flavors but not among the best ones. 3.5/5 on taste.
Lemon Pepper Soup: Watery soup with vegetables in the bottom. Taste was ordinary. 3/5 on taste.
Mushroom with Basil Oil Drizzle Soup: It was mushroom as liquid rather than having actual mushroom pieces in it. The taste was bland. 2/5 on taste.
Mutton Keema Pav: The pav was thick and masked the flavor of keema. 3/5 on taste.
Paneer Makhani Pav: Again the taste of paneer makhani was masked by the thick pav. 3/5 on taste.
Spicy Tuss Pav: Their version of Maharashtrian thecha. It was spicy but flavors were ok. 3/5 on taste.
Arabic Kuber Kulcha: Excellent in flavors with cheese inside and spices on top giving a mix of flavors. 4.5/5 on taste.
Chicken Dum Kebab: It came in dum pot. The chicken was tender and had cheese on it. The taste was good. 4/5 on taste.
Chicken Taj kebab: This was one of the best dishes on the menu with spicy chicken tikka on naan. 4.5/5 on taste.
Crispy Chicken: The taste was good but the quantity was very less. 3.5/5 on taste.
Dahi Ke Alu Tikki: A decent flavored alu tikki with not prominent flavor of anything. 3.5/5 on taste.
Bharwan Dhingri: It had grilled mushroom with stuffed cottage cheese and spiced cheese. None could be tasted but the overall taste was good. 3/5 on taste.
Paneer Patra Kebab: We ordered this twice. The first time it was like nicely flavored tandoori paneer but second time there was a lot of cheese to be seen in between the paneer pieces which was not seen on the first order. The taste of the 2nd order was much better. 4.5/5 for second order.
Farmers Delight Flatbread: It had spinach, feta cheese and sun dried tomato. The taste was decent and nothing great. 3.5/5 on taste.
Rustico Flatbread: The only flavor was that of the barbecue flavored chicken. 3/5 on taste.
Mellow Fungi Flatbread: It had shallots, olives and mushrooms. The taste was decent. 3.5/5 on taste.
Chicken Bhattiwala: The chicken was shredded in tomato gravy. The flavor was punchy and tasted good with naan. 4/5 on taste.
Korean Pot Rice: Spicy pot rice with tender chicken. Good in flavors and similar to typical pot rice. 4/5 on taste.
Sri Lankan Sambal Curry: Excellent in flavors and tasted great with plain rice. All my friends loved this dish the most. 4.5/5 on taste.
Paneer Lajawab Masala: Typical paneer lajawab with not so great flavors. 3.5/5 on taste.
Spaghetti Aglio Olio: Almost tasteless Spaghetti which was badly made as confirmed by all my friends. 2/5 on taste.
Penne Alfredo: One of the good penne alfredo I have had with thick sauce but as it was may be made beforehand the sauce had dried up. But the taste was cheesy and very good. 4.5/5 on taste.
Berry Pulav: I have had berry pulav from Britannia and even Soda Bottle Openerwala. This was nowhere close. Flavors of berry were nowhere to be tasted and the pulav itself was decent in flavors. My friend who had first time tried berry pulav liked it but I have had better ones. We ordered veg and non veg ones and both were similar in taste. 3/5 on taste.
Tandoori Roti: decent roti. 3/5 on taste.
Laccha Paratha: Thick laccha paratha which was hard to eat. 3/5 on taste.
Naan: Good naan but not among the best ones. 4/5 on taste.
Hazelnut Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream: The brownie was hot and tasted good with the vanilla ice cream. The portions were very small and not enough for all of us. We were told by the waiter that the portions will be big but they were not. Also we had ordered 5 but they gave us only four. 3.5/5 on taste.
Baked Cheesecake: Very bad cheesecake with a flavor more like egg pudding. The blueberry jam on top was well made and had a good taste. 2/5 on taste.
The cost of an unlimited menu for us was Rs. 699 + 10% service charge + 5% GST which came to about 810 Rs which is very expensive for this slow service and average food. Overall an unsatisfactory experience with this restaurant and I would not like to visit it again.
I made another order from this restaurant in covid 19 lockdown.
Chicken Coriander Pot Noodles: It was having big pieces of chicken, lot of vegetables and very nice rice with gravy. The flavor was very good. 4/5 on taste.
Broccoli, Asparagus, Baby corn & Zucchini – Korean Bibimbap: This is the first time I have had Bibimbap so I cannot compare or even comment about how authentic it was, but I will write on how I thought the dish was. It was bland in flavors. The only flavor I got was of the sauce on top which was also less. Vegetables were nice and sticky rice was well cooked but overall, it was not a flavorful dish. 2.5/5 on taste.
Hakka Noodles: These Hakka Noodles were simply perfect. Full of chicken, fried egg, and vegetables along with excellent flavors of Hakka noodles 5/5 on taste.
Butter Chicken Combo Meal: The description said that it had ghee rice, butter chicken, and roti. But the roti was missing from the dish which was delivered to me. Even without the roti, the taste of the dish was excellent. Buter chicken was a perfectly cooked creamy dish with tender chicken. The ghee flavor in the rice was adding a nice punch to the dish. One of the best butter chicken with rice dishes I have had. 5/5 on taste.
Veg Thai Curry Combo Meal: It had rice and Thai curry on the side. The gravy of the curry was soaked below the rice. The taste of the Thai curry was subtle and not among the best ones I have had. 3/5 on taste.
