Ofen - the delectably European bakery in Hyderabad is the first of its kind, with a very wide range of breads, pastries and savouries. Continuously innovating and expanding on its already exciting continental menu. Ofen has celebrated its first anniversary and is well into its second year.
The Ofen is an experience that lingers with you long after you have tasted your favourite treat. As you walk in, you are greeted by an eco-friendly wagon where our chefs bake using the finest quality ingredients.
We went to ofen somewhere around July 3rd week and ordered 3 coffee and 2 blueberry cake and a cheese cake. The waiter came back with a stale blueberry cake and we sent it back. After 10 minutes he came back and said he does not have a blueberry cake. I asked him, is'nt this place a bakery and being a weekend dont you stock enough cake to make a blueberry cake?? Again went back, came back with almost frozen cake...we decided to eat and get out of this place and swear not to come back.
Ever planned a business lunch and then come to find your car's tyres deflated ? This was our experience this week, when we had a business lunch, spend some good money for lunch at Ofen to be shocked to find that one of our colleague's tyre has been deflated by the staff. Our suspicion only grew when we found other cars also had deflated tyres. When we questionned the watchman and spoke to the staff, we came to know that it is a regular practice when they suspect people just park their cars without going to Ofen. Even though it is not a good practice, (so be it - thats their business values/core beliefs), they need to atleast watch out that they do not inconvenience their own customers (who have paid good money !!). Very cheap practice. This only puts a doubt to what extent will they go when it may come to the food they prepare/sell. Very disappointing indeed.
Would not recommend this place at all, especially if you plan for taking your colleagues or business associates. Sorry, Ofen - very disappointing indeed
