I heard about this newly opened restaurant from my sister who could not get a dinner table last Saturday night because there was a long waiting. Thought I give it a try today (Friday evening) and made my way there with my parents.
To my surprise it was an open air/outdoor restaurant and may be first of its kind in Borivali (W), I was quite delighted to see it from the outside. No problems getting a table and the seating was comfortable. The ambiance was above average with what looked like beach umbrellas attached to each table. The place was quite spacious.
We were served straight away. We ordered tomato soup to begin with, and for the mains - nargisi kofta, rotis and palak rice. I had requested to cook the food in less oil/butter as my father and mother follow a strict diet for health reasons. But that fell on deaf ears, although I had very less expectation on that front.
The service was lightening quick. The soup arrived, swimming with butter with a hint of ginger taste. It was below average. The mains were next. As the waiter tried serving nargisi koftas he seriously struggled cutting them in serving size, that very point I knew that coming here was a mistake. The koftas were raw from inside and when I tried my level best eating them but I just couldn't. I left them. I told the waiter that mate, this isn't cooked from the inside and its quite tough, he tells me because its made in mozilla cheese. Well let me tell you that there was only one visible thread of cheese and the rest was potatoes and peas uncooked. BTW the palak rice was ok.
The finger bowl were brought at the end of the meal but the water was not even luke warm.
The only good thing going for this place was the ambiance and the prompt service. The food overall struggles to get even a single star.
I would very happily eat at Veg treat or Shree sagar instead even thought its a bit cramped, alteast the food is good but here again well not for a long time unless I hear otherwise from fellow burpers.
On a good closing note, the kesar pista kulfi was finger licking delicious.
