Disappointment

After reading many reviews and the hype about fusion south-indian cuisine, set menu and all the jazz, we went in search of this place, hidden find, pretty tuff to tell its a restaurant from the outside. I usually love such places that do not give an average restaurant feel like cedars. Once inside, place looked cool, posh and lovely decor. Its of course a huge house converted into a restaurant, dimly-lit tho, lovely.

Unfortunately, from the day we went onwards, there was no set menu it seems. And the South-Indian and continental were separated, The fusion menu did appear to be present but mostly unavailable. Continental dishes were unavailable too. The menu was presented in a very intriguing way. The dishes spelled out in Tamil (written in english) as in aloo paneer roll wud b termed as Urulai Palkatti Urundai types, making u feel interested in the new dish!

Although we ordered the same, we received only a Paneer roll, which the waiter argued had aloo too, we had to make him take it bak to the kitchen and prove to us. And then came the proper aloo-paneer roll tho it was too late. Main course were nothin different, just the usual Indian stuff. The Panchamirdham or Cotton Seed Souffle that i badly wanted to try (main reason i wanted to try this place!) were not available. period.

Not a very pleasant service. Oh i almost forgot, pretty expensive!

Ambiance – 4/5
Food – 3/5
Service – 2/5
Price – over 500 for a couple or even more
Will i go back – contemplating!
