Heading out with your family or friends to enjoy and share food over unending laughter and conversations, Indian Grill Company is indeed the place you should be putting on Google Maps.
Situated on the outer circle of happening Connaught Place, this is an absolutely no fuss place. The ambience is royal, classy and very authentic like their food.
The place is spread across two floors with majority if their seating concentrated on the first floor. The seating comprises of tasteful and sophisticated sofas which indeed reflects on the royal experiences the Indian Grill Company has been known for since its inception. The elaborate designs, artful painting elegantly done up walls of the place along with soothing ambience welcome you with open arms through their unmatchable hospitality.
Already impressed by the place, I sat down for authentic Indian buffet and live Grill experience.
They had live Grill on every table and had air purifiers installed to take off the harmful fumes coming from the grill. The buffet generally comprises of three sections
- a) Starters – Served on the table and the also on the live grill
- b) Main Course – Self-service dominant food with the convenience of breads being served hot and fresh on the table
- C) Desserts – Again self-serve from the live huge counter present
Starters included –
- Paneer Pudhina Tikka – Warm and fresh Paneer tikka served via the live grill was filled of refreshing Pudhina flavours. Soft and tender paneer made it perfect
- Soya Malai Kalimirch – Most anticipated starter, after hearing a lot of appreciation from one of my foodie friend, and it did quite literally lived up to the expectation. The soya was soft, creamy and well cooked with KaliMirch providing a hint of distinct flavour to the dish
- Ananas Anardana – My all time favourite pineapple in a new avatar “Wow”. The juicy pineapple served on the grill with small granules of anardana tasted wow. One of the starter to look out for in my opinion
- Matar Makai Kebab – Veg kebabs made of Peas and Corn tasted out of the world
- Teekha Charra Aaloo – First time tasted the starter in any restaurant, and honestly the very first bite blew me away. These were small potatoes which were fried and bathed with chatpata masala to give that striking taste. Upon enquiring further these were actually the small potatoes which are crushed without taking off their outer covering and then served hot and crisp . Pretty simple and distinctive dish but was too good
- Dahi Ke Shole – The most authentic name for the Dahi ke Kebab. Elegently cut dahi kebabs were soft and tender from outside and the crisp from outside. The best part about them was that they were not that oily and dahi was fresh and not sour. Two thumbs up for pulling this off so nicely
- Singaporean Cauliflower – Pretty flavourful
- Seekh Kebab – Was just average and there was nothing great about it
After this rapid fire round of starters, we were almost full with our appetite but we wanted to try more specially the desserts. The service while serving the starters was appreciative. We never had a moment where our table/grill was empty and had no food. The servers were also sweet and adjusting enough to accommodate any urgent requirements. After taking a break and talking amidst our food, we finally decided to shift our gears and move out from our comfortable chairs to get us some main course to eat.
While taking a break we sipped along complimentary drinks –
- Masala Coke – Name says it all
- Virgin Mojito – An elementary drink with fizz and mint leaves was refreshing good
- Fruit Punch – Fruit Punch was really good, with amalgamation of various juices
It took our stomach some time to settle the huge and finger licking starter parade. Then was the time to hit to the main course counters. Honestly, in any buffet this is the part that I enjoy the least and the food quality is never matches the starters. But this time I was surprised to be find the main course equally good.
Special mention of some of the food items which I absolutely loved were – the lovely creamy Dal Makhni, favourful and adequately diced pieces of the paneer forming Kadhai Paneer, earthen pot served Chicken Biryani. Muttor Mushroom was just out of the world for me. Being a multi – cuisine restaurant they also had Hakka Noodles, Stir fried vegetables also which were indeed going with the wonderful experience till now.
Amongst the meal saying – “ A foodie paradise for sure”
Some of the salads to go along with the food were – Macroni Salad, the colourful beetroot curd salad, peanut salad and conical papad.
The last but my favourite part of the meal – The Desserts
They had a huge range of desserts which included soft and delicately warm Gulab Jamum, brownies, sabudana kheer, ice creams, flavoured puddings, phirni, nariyal ladoos and fresh cut fruits.
I think the variety of the desserts could have been better. The brownie was tasty but cut in very small pieces which were making them crumble even with slightest of pressure, the pudding was small and just average too.
Overall IGCpresented a wonderful and delightful food experience coupled with superb hospitality and prompt service.
A special thanks to our server Chandra Mohan who served us with an unending smile always.
I would recommend this to all of my friends and would love to visit again with my family.
We saw the food winking, smiling and alluring us but then we have to leave just to come back with more experiences from our EnticingFoodCruise
