The starters are served on the table, while there are different live counters as well. The very essential and every Indian’s favorite Chat Corner, Paratha corner and Dosa corner are here as well. For foodies like me who enjoys Dosa at any time of the day is also treated with their favorites. Various Indian desserts and kesar milk to end the lovely meal with, Just like a Punjabi.
The food started with the lassi in a huge glass which again reminded me of Punjab.
Tandoori Mushroom – Juicy, delectable and delicious mushrooms very well marinated and cooked in tandoor. I could have had as many but then mains were in my mind so had to control.
Paneer Kalimirchi Tikka – The soft and fresh paneer well marinated and cooked with the kick of kali mirch (black pepper). The preparation was the combination of creamy and spicy. I liked the flavors.
Khatte Meethe Tawa Aloo – I don’t like sweet in savory food and hence this dish didn’t impress me much. Though would love to try the spicy version of tandoori aloo.
Paneer Cheese Roll – Crisp fried covering with creamy, cheesy filling. Simply loved it.
Veg Chilly Milly Kebab – Delicious and delectable mix veg kebab made a second serving on the table. The perfectly cooked vegetables with crisp coating and mildly spiced tasted delicious with mint chutney.
Chat Counter – The panipuri needs space in heart not in stomach. The best panipuri I have had in Pune. The spicy tangy flavor just lingered my tastebuds for a long time. I wish I just didn’t have to stop eating those best panipuris.
All my favorite Punjabi food was lined in the menu which instantly made space in my tummy through its aroma. The best Punjabi Kadhi Pakoda in Pune, Dal Makhani, Rajma, Sarso ka Saag, Kumbh Hara Dhania Masala, Paneer Hara Pyaza along with wheat roti, naan and missi roti. The best buffet I have had in Pune. Loved every bit of the meal. It was so soul satisfactory.
A meal is never complete without some portion of added desserts to it. Among various placed desserts I tried gulab jamun and rabdi which gave a perfecting ending to a meal. I also tried Kesar wala milk but it was little too sweet for my liking.
