I was invited to try out the new lunch menu. Let me start with the place. The place is spacious with two floors. The top floor gives an open air feel and that’s where the white sticks are allowed to be burnt. They also have shishas (hukka) !!
The floor below is spacious enough and space used well. I also liked the concept of putting up post-its for feedback, both positives and negatives and displaying it to the customers. That takes some nerve.
The tables have slots for grills where the freshly barbequed meats and veggies are brought continuously. I loved the fish tikka and prawns. The chicken tikka was great too but am not too high on chicken…
Veg tikki – Average
There were some exceptions that absolutely blew the mind in terms of presentation and taste
Chicken wings – Spot in deliciousness. The right heat levels to keep you engrossed
American Corn – Very Nicely presented on a crispy wonton base. The corns were crisp and made a great accompaniment with the beer
Anchovy Fry – Fish fingers with a difference. Who anchovies crispy fried with a lovely sauce along side. It sure kept me busy 🙂
The dip was a class apart.
Sesame crispy Lamb – A lovely dish and lamb is my favourite so if I sign off any lamb dish, it is worth you while
Caramalized pineapple – Frankly I have had better
All of this was accompanied by Hoegaarden and Buds 🙂 There was sangria as well as other mocktails but I did not taste it.
The main course had a good spread. I was too stuffed with the starters so had very selected items
Paya Soup – Exquisite !!!! A beautiful flavourful soup that completely set the tonques wagging inspite of the full tummy.
Crab curry – The gravy was spot on but the crab could do with more time in the gravy so the meat abosrbs the flavors. It was perfectly cooked however and did complete justice to the crab meat
Chicken Biryani was excellent. I also saw dimsum noodles but did not taste. However it seemed interesting
Fish Salsa – Served in shot glasses this was an interesting twist of flavors
Dessert also had a good variety and my absolute favourite was the chocolate infused rosogollas that stole the show. Sigh
Overall a fun place to party with friends and to enjoy the shisha at the end
