Happiness Deli, Fort- Review

Roochster

Happiness DeliSo there was this deal from Timesdeal which said that I could get a pizza/burger, a sandwich/salad and a drink worth Rs. 500 for Rs.250. Was it worth it? You’re just about to find out.

Food– Happiness Deli is just another cafe that serves sandwiches, pizzas, pasta, desserts, hot and cold drinks and sides. Unfortunately we didn’t get to choose our sandwich/ pizza/ drink and with our limited options we could have a cold corn and cheese sandwich, an iced tea, a cold coffee and a Margherita pizza (8”). Our sandwich came first and it was quite bad. There was no salt, pepper or any kind of taste except for boiled corn and cheese randomly put into 2 slices of bread. I asked them to atleast grill it which they said they can’t for whatever reason they have. Next, we had our drinks. The iced tea was good and so was the cold coffee but the quantities of both were more like a tasting. Our pizza finally arrived and gladly that did not let us down. The crust was nice and thin and the taste was superb! I would totally have that again. No meal is complete without a dessert and so I thought chalo let me finish off the meal with a happy ending.  Unfortunately the Oreo Mousse cake didn’t taste as good as it looked. It was quite bad.

Ambience– There are 2 outlets of Happiness Deli in South Mumbai apart from the one at Radio Club. We went to the Fort one very close to HDFC bank at Kala Ghoda. The cafe is decent but a bit cramped up.

Service– The service is alright. However, I would have liked it if my sandwich was grilled for me or the drinks were on our table before the food.

Prices– The prices are reasonable and especially if you go after 8pm, you can get good discounts. But Timesdeal and Happiness Deli certainly fooled us with their supposed ‘offer’. The Corn and cheese sandwich was not more than 50 bucks. The 8” Margherita was for Rs. 105 and the drinks together would not have been more than 160 bucks. So the deal that was apparently worth Rs. 500 was for Rs.250 which is what we would have paid anyway. The dessert of course was at an added cost of Rs. 70 approximately.

Verdict– I recommend the pizza and would like to try more of their food. Reasonably priced, Happiness Deli is a decent enough place to grab a snack but I wouldn’t recommend it for desserts.

Rating– 2.5/5
