In the era of impressive names, this one surely lacks behind. But some steps toward this Cafe will tell you that you were probably wrong in judging this place by its boring name. The stairs to the cafe is all well lit up with blue colours.
First step into the cafe, you will be impressed, by the beautiful lighting and the amazing decor of the place. Upon entering you will find a huge wall with two rainbow coloured frames and a close look would tell you the huge wall hangings are handmade paper flowers decorated with wonderful lights.
A more of 360 degrees view would make you realise the wonderful honey bee web design starting from the bar to the roof and ending on the other side of the cafe.
And it’s not just the design piece, but the multi-colour lighting can change the look of the entire place with a single switch of light. They also have projectors for some match screenings and in house entertainment.
The cafe also offers you a semi open terrace and a really well done up area for hookah and smoking. The unique semi- open space gives you a comfortable feeling of sitting under a roof and at the same time lets you enjoy the evening chill to the fullest.
Coming down the food aspect, we sat down to order –
– Dahi ke Kebab – The first dish onto the plate was an absolute stunner. The presentation was wonderful, and the texture of the kebabs too. The kebabs were fresh and delicate. Served along with mint chutney the dahi kebabs were literally melting in my mouth in a second. Surprisingly the kebabs were not oily and had a tinge of brown crispiness from the outside. Indeed one of the best dahi kebabs tried off lately
– Zatuni Chicken Tikka – The olive oil marinated chicken tikka, tasted just average. But in addition to that the Chicken was not soft at all while spoilt the entire dish
– Desi Nachos – One of a kind Nachos ever tasted. For a change these nachos were super-duper spicy and were prepared without cheese. The nachos were basically tossed with the vegetables in completely desi style. The veggies in the Nachos included Capsicum, Onion and tomato, coriander leaves and some green chilli. The Nacho chips tasted good and it tasted like a chaat. Quite a good deviation from the regular Nachos
– Makhmali Seekh Kebab – As promised the mouth melting Makhmali Seekh kebab were nowhere close to that. They were bland and dry from inside. Disappointment
– Veg Tandoori Platter – The platter included Paneer Tikka and Broccoli ki shammi – The Paneer was very yummy, the creamy taste and the thick gravy just took my heart away. The broccoli shammi was good, fresh and soft. However, in the broccoli shammi the taste of the main ingredient was somehow subdued and the masalas were making it taste like mutton kebabs
Since, we were all done with our food we tried their famous Paan Kulfi and Pink Kheer
– Pan Ki Kulfi – The kulfi came in very beautifully placed serving dish. The kulfi had Pan beneath the kulfi layer, which can be seen only when it’s divided into half. It’s basically the inner most filling which is made of Kulfi. I believe the kulfi when served was very cold and frozen, hence I could easily taste the ice in my kulfi. Otherwise the kulfi was great
– Pink Kheer – This one is made of beetroot and tasted pretty unique. The sweetness of the dessert was also on the medium side.
Along with the food we were also served some chef special mochtails out of which I remember the Virgin Sangria just because of the way it was all filled with fruits and other flavours. Overall every mocktail served were completely fantastic.
Amazing staff and management, would surely love to visit the place again.
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
