In a nutshell:
Cool place to hang out with friends, rediscover ur sporty side or the absence of it, fairly good drinks, nothing extraordinary, overpriced ‘above average’ food ……………. In other words, they r the underdogs when it comes to good food.
Address & other details: Underdogg
Meal for 2: Rs. 1000 onwards (without alcohol)
Cuisine type: Vegetarian & Nonvegetarian
Short description – In case u r in a hurry:
If u ask me whether I will revisit, my answer is yes – to hang out with friends but surely not to eat out.
When it comes to food, the answer is no.
We tried the Tenderloin kabab – nice tasty juicy creamy slightly tough & chewy towards the end , something that we wud hate to have in an Indian kabab & something taht totally takes away the fun of a kabab.
Same for mutton kabab
I have surely have had much better versions of kababized meat in India & abroad where the meat is hand pounded & hence has some kind of a texture & retains the juiciness & taste of the meat, unlike what we had here.
In a nutshell:
Pretty Good food with Very Good Drinks & Excellent Music.
Address & other details: Hard Rock Cafe
Meal for 2: Rs. 750 onwards (without alcohol)
Cuisine Type: Vegetarian & Nonvegetarian
Short Description – in case u r in a hurry:
If u reach this place before 9pm, u almost get treated like u have been to a restaurant. Post that, depending on the day of the week, occasions, live shows etc, the place converts from a restaurant to a disc ……………. U can see the transformation if u hang around for 2 -3 hours.
Music is loud but peppy, enjoyable & nice usually.
The menu is the same as any other Hard Rock Cafe in any other country. There r ‘India special’ dishes too. The serving staff is good & the Manager comes at least once to check if everything is fine. The food is mainly American stuff with some tid bits thrown in from around the world. The food tastes much above average – I call it ‘good’ to ‘very good’, nothing I ever ate here was below expectations – but not many of these dishes fall into the category of ‘outstanding’.
Cocktails r really good – Every time we have been there, the cocktail suggested by the serving person was usually the best – as compared to others that we ordered.
