After a harrowing time at a restaurant, you can read it here, we were just looking for basic comfort food and hence landed up here.

We had been meaning to visit, given the fact that Sanjeev is quite known & I have had the honour of tasting before the launch years ago And Amitava the owner has turned out to be a friend. The distance and outside the required area sort of always hindered, but this seemed like a good opportunity.

The lift took us to the 2nd floor, smiling hostess took us inside, offering a choice of table, and we settled down to peruse the menu.

N ordered the Peru Pyaala – Guava juice, lemon juice with a hint of mint syrup – quite interesting and nice; whilst I opted for Old Monk only to be told that it is not available, Upon being questioned about it, was informed that ‘Stock was in short supply’ Got me laughing but ordered a Bacardi Black after a long time.

Limited vegetarian options in starters other than Paneer – so opted for Masala Papads – crisp and good, Imli Ananas ki Chaat – tandoori pineapple & seasonal fruits pepped with ginger & red tamarind dressing which turned out to be quite amazing; Karara Subz Roll – crispy cigars stuffed with crunchy vegetables in tamarind, chill and garlic sauce – pretty tasty, but a couple of cigars were burnt whilst frying and the chilli garlic sauce tasted suspiciously from a bottle by Sams or Mr. Ching.

This was followed by a simple Main course – Pindi Chole, Veg raita, accompanied by Mint & Lachha paratha both very good – probably the best I’ve tasted in a while. But the star of the evening was Pyaaz Mirchi ki Roti that was just fantastic.

What stood out was the unobtrusive but consistent and quick service – Sachin was very good.

Quite a comfort meal and yes if the drive is not so much, definitely going back.
