Have been waiting to be here ever since I have been in Mumbai.. and finally last weekend I got the opportunity. Having heard so much about it, was hoping to find it full.. and it was! Situated on the main road, it is hard to miss.
The structure will not impose a likeable effect on being seen from outside, but once you are inside, you know why it is so famous. Saturday night at 9, it was full to the brim with more than 20 people in waiting. It is large group friendly, and since we were just 2 people, we were given a place in just 15 minutes.
The place exerts enthusiasm and buzz. Waiters running around taking and serving orders, people having a good time.. You can see towers and pitchers of beer on almost every table. The crowd is pretty good too.
Now coming to the food.. We ordered 2 glasses of beer with french fries and paneer tikka. The beer was served immediately with peanuts, followed by Panner Tikka. Paneer was soft and the marination was quite delicious. Served with coriander and mint chutney, which was pretty nice. The fries came in way later, and we ordered 2 glasses of beer again. The french fries were a little let down. Though good in taste, they were a little too much oily. The service is quite quick and attentive.
We ended the meal with a red velvet pastry. Not the best I have had, but decent enough. The cream could have been less sweet and lighter.
For 4 glasses of beer, 2 appetizer and 1 dessert, the bill came to 1400 bucks. Not worth spending on food, but bang on atmosphere.
