Bay of Non-Bengal!
One of the restaurants in chennai i wanted to visit badly and suggested each time someone offered to gimme a treat …bengali cuisine is something i felt was left unexplored by me. The place seems unnoticebable at first tho its rite behind the famous gangothri. The restaurant with very few tables, does LOOK crowded.
The ambiance is ok but somehow the chairs dont feel that comfy to sit down and have a nice chat. I take a look at the menu, quite a variety it seems. The veggie platter was tasty and filling for 4 of us. The other starters, say the different rolls were attractive, but the egg roll i ordered was placed bak to be taken to the kitchen rite after the first bite. But my friend said that the paneer roll was good. The Bengali menu was one whole page which was entirely unavailable according to the waiter! Can there be a better disppointment?
So the regular roti and side dish it was, painfully! The food was not very appetising, its not like u cant stop with one bite, in fact u will stop with one bite! The lucknowi biryani which was another speciality here was ok, no complaints but seriously noone was hungry after all this. The desserts were yummy, the jelebi tho wasnt authentic looking (had more south indian looks to it!) was freshly made and yummy but too damn sweet to handle.
Ambiance – 3/5
Food – 2/5
Service – 3/5
Price – around 500 to 600 bucks per couple
Will i ever go back? – I mite call them up and make sure the Bengali menu is available and then .. change my mind… na.. m not really eager to visit this place again watever it is!
