Short description- in case u r in a hurry
We got to know of this restaurant while reading reviews on zomato. So decided to try out this place during our day trip to pune.
Mutton uppu curry was mind blowing good. The mutton pieces were super soft, melt in the mouth. The flavours of meat merged amazing well with that of the spices. Perfect seasoning. Rate it 4.75.5
Fish in banana leaf. This again was brilliant. We have had so many versions of fish in banana leaf from different states of india but this one was unique. It had spices, onions and a big piece of super fresh fish that was flaky and absolutely juicy. Full of flavours of fish and the marination. Rate it 4.5/5
Prawn with banana flower was a dish that we ordered with a lot of hope. However, it turned out to b very good, but not outstanding. Loved the curry the way it was but the banana flowers did not make their presence felt at all. Not sure if that is how this dish is supposed to be but would have been good to have a bit more presence (the other extreme being Oriya, Bengali and Assamese banana flower dishes where the taste is predominantly of the flower, inspite of addition of shrimps at time).
Bun parota was a parota that looked roundish like a bun, had the best flavours of ghee, super duper layery ( like there were millions of layers ), the outer layers were absolutely crisp and as we dug more into the thick parota, the softness increased. Outstanding, somewhat unparalleled. Rate it 4.75/5.
For dessert we ordered Ambhalapuzha Payasam. It was very average. The rice was not as soft as it should have been, the sweetness was not too high but above optimal, the ‘pak’ of the dish was missing. What I mean by pak is the point where the milk , rice and sweetener optimally mix after long slow cooking. Rate it 2.5/5
Vasantha neer- Lemon and coconut water drink. Very very interesting. We Wud not hv ordered had it not been recommended by our server. It had beautifully retained the flavor of coconut water and taste of lemon. Rate it 4.5/5
Wud surely like to revisit
