I blindly decided to venture this place based on two facts, 1. its inside sathyam cinemas and 2. the reviews i read about it! Maybe I expected a lot too much but the place didnt stay up to a 5 star rating on burrp! The ambiance is elegant and chic definitely, but the place is too small and so is the items on the menu and so is the quantity served.
The waiters/waitresses are too sweet, much sweeter than the apricot ice cream that almost tasted sour! She asked me to try the ginger or vinegar(balsamic) ice cream, wondering how it would’ve been if apricot was so. All in the name of ‘exotic’! The milk ice cream is awesome, a bite of ecstasy finally. The complimentary chocolates were a nice try, it got me in the beginning. But the banana crepe tasted half cooked, and the orange juice was so bitter.
Now, there was no blueberry cheesecake or olive icecream???? as described in other reviews, big disappointment and one more following it was that there was neither ice tea nor cold coffee.. twas all ‘hot hot’! Anyways, i think the only positive thing about this place is ‘Sathyam’! Its nice to get a cozy place to chill out inside sathyam for a change when you are waiting or out of a movie with a bunch of friends or your date. That explains the cost, they can afford to charge us! The word is Exorbitant! The Darjeeling white tea costs just 220 bucks.. wondering if its a pack of tea? YES me too!
