Not being a sports or beer fan, sports bar seldom appealed me; but wanted to try their LIITs since long based on my friend’s recommendation.
No special mention of the ambiance. Typical sports bar like atmosphere with multiple screens displaying ongoing sports events and a super-size screen for any mega event. I would be glad if they pump-up the lighting little bit.
The staff is very friendly, but service lacks consistency and depends on the food you order.
The unlimited buffet lunch didn’t appeal us much and we stuck to a-la-cart option.
We tried Onion Rings (Rs. 150++), crisp and well prepared. Bruschetta (Rs. 180++) would have been better with the softer bread base. The service staff happily customized my Veg. Penne Pasta (Rs. 280++) to make it as per my choice and we liked it the most. Mexican Burger (Rs. 280++) was good in taste but was a little dry.
Among drinks, LIITs have considerable wide varieties. Being here for the first time, we stuck to the Classic LIIT (Rs. 350++).
Expectations were high and time was less when I approached BK. Selection took quite a while as this was the first experience but eventually the menu turned out to be a cousin of other burger serving QSRs namely McD and KFC.
Service was quick but not quick enough for extra marks.
My order, Paneer King Melt Combo (Rs. 159++) and Veg. Stripes (Rs. 45++). The combo included fries and Pepsi.
Paneer King Melt burger was good in size, good in taste but not a great one. Paneer lovers can better have McSpicy Paneer. Definitely not as great as burgers of Dunkin Donuts and More.
Fries and Veg. Stripes were again good but inferior in taste to their counterpart of McD and KFC respectively
Veg. Whopper looked appealing with whooping size. Didn’t get a chance to try it so it’s first my checklist with other burgers and beverages to try at BK.
A shiny metallic board catches your attention even from the farthest corner of the food court. Bhagat Tarachand or B Bhagat Tarachand, in this case, is always a preferred name when it comes to great Indian veg. food.
This being an outlet in the food court, you are left on your own to find a seat and getting it near to the outlet becomes a challenge especially in the weekend rush.
My minimalistic order was Dal Fry Tadka and Tandoori Butter Rotis. Order placing was smooth, but a noteworthy thing is their upselling skills. If you don’t remain firm, you end up ordering more than you required or planned for. Order arrival took a while and must be attributed again to the weekend rush.
Now coming back to my order, the Dal Tadka was great in taste, a little thin with generous onion tadka. Butter Rotis were topped with a dollop of butter.
Worthy of consideration when it comes to Veg. Indian food.
Supposed to one of the promising Italian fare outlet @Viviana, Alfredo’s is surely above par for food but leaves a lot of room for improvement in service.
Nice decor, ambiance and spacious seating, especially the central sofa arrangement.
In food we ordered Roasted Tomato Garlic Pepper Soup, Pepper and Olive Hot Bruschetta, Penne Vodka, Lasagna Florentine in vegetarian along with some non-vegetarian fare for our friends. None of the items disappoint us. Our poultryvorous friends appreciated the veg. order as much as the non-veg one. Lasagna was little extra cheesy and was in good quantity. Pasta was great too but a single bread served with it do not meet the purpose as usually there are more than one person sharing the plate.
Service was extremely slow and lacked promptness. We even heard person on next table raising concern over delay in serving his order. I can’t stop myself from asking, why so serious? Wear a smile at least. That’s half of your job done. All the staff including a manager like lady were damn serious.
I would still like to visit the outlet again for food with high expectation of improved service.
It must be an expensive brother of Pizza Hut was my first impression and I am glad my very first visit to PE broke it big time.
Usually I refrain from writing point-by-point review but doing it here would be injustice to the experience.
Contemporary and tidy ambiance with ample seating choices. Only one table was occupied when we entered and I couldn’t stop myself from clicking a few shots of the perfect setting. The open kitchen also adds to the charm if you are curious and want to see how your food is being prepared.
Food: We tried Berry Fresca (160++), Sunrise Ice Tea (160++), Dough Balls Doppio (325++), Garlic Bread (180++), Giardinie (675++), a classic pizza upgraded to Pizza Romana, Lasagna Verde (510++) and Bonaffee Pie (325++).
Dough Balls was something new to try. Made with very soft and fresh ingredients, it was good for single try but not an exceptional item. Garlic bread, again with fresh and soft texture didn’t disappoint either.
Pizza and Lasagna were excellent and well balanced in taste while Bonaffee Pie satisfied the sweet tooth. A must try if you are fond of banana and cream. That also come wsith choice of gelato.
Service was a pure complement to the high-on-quality and high-on-aesthetics food. The friendly staff knew very well the ingredients and taste of the food on the menu.
Prices are definitely on higher side but somewhat justifiable given the gourmet experience.
Recommendations: Sunrise Ice Tea, Garlic Bread, Giardinie Pizza, Bonaffe Pie
