Over the flames is one of these places around Hitec city that advertises wood fried pizzas.
Against the general consensus of the foodie folk around, I decided to pay it a visit.
On a weekday lunch, I landed at the restaurant to find it empty, everyone in the restaurant glued to the solitary TV , no plates , no glasses. Even after i came, there was very little change in the staff to acknowledge my presence.
A menu card was placed in front of me but no one to take the order. When i gestured for someone to come, he nodded his head and refused to budge.
I finally went to the counter and placed my order. A 4 cheese pizza and Pulpy orange, which the bearded guy at the counter took note of.
10 mins later, a bottle of thumbs up is placed before me, i look at the guy near the counter and he asks me , fanta is not there sir ! what the hell was he writing on the pad then ?
A few mins later, a stack load of plates came from the kitchen, followed by another stack,. The water was still not served, There were 2 guys who looked like they dint belong there, kept staring at each other ( probably interns ) but i guess the establishment should have trained them or at least instructed not to stand clueless.
My pizza was served about 20 mins after my order was placed. As soon as the pizza was served, i could make out the feta and the mozzarella, strangely the cheddar or Parmesan dint give out any smell.
I slowly took first couple of bites of the pizza and could only taste flour, tomato, mozzarella and a very rare feta. And suddenly there was a crunch and i could taste some burnt pizza base. I still had 2 bites worth pizza in my hand and the cheese was already over.
Overall in a 12 inch pizza, the topping was unevenly spread for about 3/4th the area with obvious absence of cheddar and Parmesan
This was the case for the entire pizza. Major disappointment like all others
1. insufficient amount of cheese used
2. there was no effort taken to serve a good dish.
3. the base was burnt and as thin as a roti but extremely hardened. due to excess heat used.
4. no ambiance
5. careless waitstaff
6. WTF attitude when trying to tell something.
I am not one bit impressed by food or the establishment may be 1 more outing will decide whether to write it off or not...
