Vault cafe created a lot of buzz when it opened and since then this place is much talked about as it is certainly not a quiet place. Its alive and kicking and caters to young party lovers. You get an idea of how much thought and effort have been infused to come up with a place like this when you visit..
A heavy metal door has to be opened with a lot of effort to get in . The interiors are very well done, a domed shape chamber look has been given to the place with dim yet beautifully lit spacious area. There is a long bar in one corner which is highlighted with vibrant yellow lighting and a deejay console in the middle. I simply loved the idea of four to five tunnel shaped chambers with a sitting capacity of 10 to 12 people which are kind of seperated from the main hall with rustic looking round shaped doors. Also is an outdoor sitting area with a great view and usually remains packed most of the time.A table reservation to the outdoor sitting is recommended.
The food and drinks menu are varied with best of all the cuisines. I usually start of in a simple way of ordering whiskey but experimented with drinks to order a cocktail called Vault no. 1857, a vodka based drink with cardamom and vanilla flavour topped with pineapple juice which was excellent, Also i simply loved the way it was presented. It was a great start. Later ordered a long island iced tea which was traditional and good , and a vault red bull which was a bit sweeter.
I usually dont have much expectations from the food in places like these where the focus is more on ambiance, drinks and music , but the food did impress . Starting off with Schumak Spiced grilled chicken with humus , tzaziki sauce , and pita as accompaniments. The chicken was spicy yet balanced . The humus and tzaziki were of perfect consistency. The lettuce and orange salad which was a great combination of citrus orange and crispy lettuce with vinaigrette dressing. The next in line were the celery and mushroom dimsums served with soy sauce and green onion vinegar was outstanding. The veg pepper salt i thought was a bit soggy and could have been better. The soup of the day was the veg clear soup which had a homely taste had a good portion size and was simply presented. Grilled chicken with mushroom and pepper sauce was our only order from the main course section which was par excellent. Served on a bed of mashed potatoes with buttered summer veggies topped with a rich brown sauce was a feast. Presentation and the portion size was perfect. The brownie and ice cream and the tiramisu made a great ending to our meal.
The service was flawless, The staff was well groomed , courteous and responsive. A special mention here for the manager Mr. Yogesh and our server Mr. Ashu upadhyay for taking care of us so well which made us leave with a smile on our face and a promise with ourselves to repeat our visit.
