Throughout the course of my review writing trip I have always described eateries as GOOD, AMAZING, BAD, APPALLING etc.
I feel it would be complete injustice on my part and an absolute insult to prithvi cafe if i use any of the aforementioned adjectives.
Therefore i choose the word BEAUTIFUL..
firstly before i write this review let me just say i am not going to review the food, cause i believe it is again insulting if you go to prithvi cafe to judge food..
I am going to base my review on 2 parameters. AMBIANCE AND THE FLUTE PLAYER.
The ambiance is well serene and tranquil and oh so PERFECT. Artsy people have a style and flair for a reason and all that is evident from the simplistic yet touching feeling that you get once you enter the cafe.
Once you enter the cafe u enter a world apart from mumbai.
A tiny oasis in the heart of mumbai city with its quintessential crowd and lovely lovely feel.
secondly the flute player is magical. me and my girlfriend had the opportunity to sit at the table right next to where he was playing and take this from a death metal fan... i have never been so moved in my life not when i am headbanging to an Ensiferum concert and definitely not when i have my music plugged on. that day i actually discovered the beauty of the softer notes of music thanks to the flute player.
Its actually quiet ironic. The day i went to prithvi cafe i had lost my job due to some shit downsizing and had flung my mobile in anger and broken it. Surprisingly when i came home that day from prithvi cafe. I did not feel any of the stress or anger at all.
