1 Tablespoon Pizza Kitchen, Matunga (E)- Review

Roochster

1-tablespoon-1 I’d been craving pizza for some time and wished to go have some over the weekend; when I got a mail to try 1 Tablespoon, a pizza place. Ha! My prayers were answered! So, Karan and I decided to go to their Matunga outlet and treat ourselves to some really good pizza! Now when I say good, I mean good alright! Read on.

Food– One Tablespoon serves Italian food, mainly pizza and pasta. They also have paninis and some side dishes such as Garlic rolls, Hummus and Pita and coolers. Being a vegetarian only place, this might be a bit disheartening for the non-vegetarians, but I promise you even the Veg pizzas are brilliant! Here’s all the stuff we had:

Spaghetti Aglio Olio– Slightly dry and spicey, but tastewise it was perfect! We thought we’d just try it but wiped it clean because of how yummy it was.

1-tablespoon-pastaCiao Chili (Tomato sauce, cheese, Ricotta, Red Chilli) – My favourite from all the pizzas we tried. This was the first pizza we tried and everything from the bread to the sauce to the toppings was perfect. Karan preferred the Rosa Mexicana pizza though.

Rosa Mexicana (Mexican sauce, cheese, tomatoes, sweet corn, jalapenos, onions) – This was a fully loaded pizza with a Mexican twist. If you like your pizza loaded with toppings, you must have this one.

Mushroom Lovers (Tomato sauce, cheese, mushrooms, minced garlic) – I’m not a mushroom lover but Karan said it was pretty nice.

Quattro Formaggi (Tomato sauce, Mozzarella, Cheddar, Parmesan, Scamorza, Green onions, garlic) – The onions and garlic made a big difference to the regular super cheesy pizza. Try it!

Raspberry Iced Tea, Lemon Iced Tea, Orange Cooler (Tang)-All were too sweet and we had to ask them to add water and ice.

1-tablespoon-pizzasAmbience & Service – Located in Matunga East under a residential building, One Tablespoon is a small place with 3 to 4 tables to sit. A brick wall with a little window stands opposite the tables, adding a nice rustic feel to the restaurant. They deliver to nearby places and also have another outlet at Lower Parel, where they serve pizza by the slice and non veg food.  We were served well and so glad to have ordered all the right stuff.

Prices– As we were invited, our dinner was completely complimentary however, if you plan to go on your own too, everything you eat there is worth every penny. The pizzas range from Rs. 285-405 for a 11” pizza good for one person, the Aglio Olio pasta is for Rs. 275, Paninis are for Rs.195- 225. The coolers are for Rs. 75 each.

1-tablespoon-2Verdict– We’re definitely going to One Tablespoon again, next time to Lower Parel so Karan can try the non-vegetarian pizzas too. Love! Love! Love! Go try! NOW!

Serafina, Fort- Review

Roochster

Serafina 1Being a Verified Reviewer on Zomato has its perks and I must say that I’m blessed ‘cause I’ve been trying so many new restaurants and cafes all around the city! When Kaiarsh from Zomato, mailed me about the Serafina #Zomatomeetup, I was super excited! I had read mostly good things about the restaurant and I was finally going to try it myself. *woot woot*

Food– Where do I begin! So there was this special menu just for us at the #Zomatomeetup from which we could order whatever we wanted. Now imagine a bunch of hungry foodies sitting at a table…yeah kinda like vultures waiting to sweep its prey off the ground. Haha! Here’s all the stuff I had.

Fresh Lime Soda (sweet) – Perfect in taste, just needed ice.

Potato & Leek Soup- Have it only if you really must have a soup. I’m not a fan of potato in liquid form.

Potato Involtini (Roasted baby potatoes topped with creamy fondue sauce and caramelized garlic- THE BEST potato starter EVER! You cannot, just cannot skip this beauty of a dish when at Serafina! This dish must win the best starter award if there could be something like that. I swear, it’s that good.

Margherita Pizza- Pretty good. I liked that the crust wasn’t as thin as a naan and in fact was slightly crispy.

Serafina2copyTartufo Nero (Robiola cheese, fontina, truffle cheese, truffle oil, sliced black truffle) – Stinks like rotten milk mixed sweaty shoes and methane gas but tastes so good that it will compel you to forget about the stench. It doesn’t sound appetizing at all but once you eat it, you will love it. You’ve just got to trust me about this.

Melanzane Speziata (San Marzano tomatoes, Mozzarella cheese, spicy eggplant, jalapeños, lettuce, goat cheese and balsamic reduction) – I’m not a fan of eggplant, especially on pizza but this one was quite something. A combination of everything right. Tad spicy but delicious nonetheless.

Penne Alla Vodka (Italian peeled tomato sauce, cream and a little vodka) – This reddish creamy pasta was good. I liked that the pasta was nice and saucy.

Farfalle Al Pesto (Bowtie pasta with homemade pesto) – I would have liked some more pesto in this pasta.

Serafina3Ravioli Al Tartufo Nero (Home style Black Truffle Ravioli and a touch of butter) – Smelly again but taste-wise ace.

Risotto Pepperonata (Creamy saffron Risotto topped with assorted bell peppers sautéed in pomodoro sauce) – Great combination and a happy taste that lingers till you have your next dish. I would say let nothing but dessert be eaten after this dish.

Jalapeno Mac n Cheese- Mac n cheese is my usual preference of pasta because I love white sauce pasta. I have to say though that this one at Serafina was just okay. The jalapenos didn’t do much and it was a little bland for my liking.

TiramisucopyTiramisu- OH MY GOD! Its been more than a week and I still can’t forget my first bite of Serafina’s Tiramisu. Whoever came up with that recipe, is pure genius! I would skip all my meals to have just that. Sogoodsogoodsogood! If you’re thinking of what to give me as a birthday or anniversary present, I would love Serafina’s Tiramisu, thank you.

Chocolate Ganache Mousse Cake- #Yummyinmytummy! This one’s got the right amount of chocolate to make you satisfy all your chocolate cravings, especially during that time of the month, ladies. Gentlemen, you will know what it feels like to have your craving satisfied during that time of the month if you were a lady.

Panna Cotta- This was my least favourite dessert. I didn’t like the texture of the Panna Cotta or the taste.

Ambience– With a mezzanine floor, Serafina at Fort is a very well planned and executed restaurant with adequate amount of space to sit, well done interiors and comfortable furniture. The music will take you back to the 80s and 90s, songs that are hum worthy. There’s a bar if you want to just grab a drink and a wood fire oven open for you to see how well they make pizzas from scratch.

Service– I can’t really comment about the service until the next visit as this was a #Zomatomeetup and we had waiters at our service throughout.

Serafina4copyPrices– I wouldn’t say Serafina is reasonably priced. Yes, it is on the expensive side but the quantity and quality of the food is perfect. The potato and leek soup is priced at Rs. 250. The Potato Involtini is priced at Rs. 375, the pastas are mostly priced at Rs. 600 and up and so are the mains. Now the pizzas are priced from Rs. 475 to Rs. 1250 for a 9” pizza. Yup! The Tartufo Nero is priced at Rs.1250 because of its expensive ingredients. The desserts are priced at Rs. 375 for the Chocolate Ganache Cake and Panna Cotta while the Tiramisu which is full value for money is priced at Rs. 595. A Fresh Lime Soda is priced at Rs. 150. In all, if you share a starter, main course and dessert along with individual mocktails, you would spend roughly 1000-1200 per head which is not bad for the brilliant food and Tiramisu you get here!

Verdict– My review can be summed up in 3 MUST HAVE dishes at Serafina- Potato Involtini, Tartufo Nero (Ignore the smell) pizza and TIRAMISU.

Vicinia Cafe & Bar- Kemps Corner- Review

Roochster

When I heard that Subway had shut down at Kemps Corner I was a bit surprised only to find out that a sweet looking cafe called Vicinia had opened. I did want to try it immediately but never got the chance. Now that I finally did, here I am writing about my experience.

Vicinia Cafe2Food– The menu at Vicinia consists of European and American cuisine. My brother and I wanted to get a taste of everything and so we tried quite a few dishes. As an accompaniment with our food we called for mocktails. I had an Orange Blossom which was quite nice and my brother had a Sparkling Guava drink which was alright. As a starter the first thing that caught my eye was the Cranberry and Goat cheese Crostini. Interesting combination and taste. I totally recommend it! We also tried the Cottage cheese skewers which tasted very good but were too small so it was more like having a starter before a proper starter. I wanted to try the pizza so thought a Margherita would be the best to get an idea. The crust was hard and the pizza sauce was just ok so the pizza overall was a disappointment. The Herbed Rice with Mixed Veggies was superb! It had the right flavours to make it deliciously good! I just wish the portion size of all these dishes was larger. Superb presentation of food otherwise! After a heavy meal, surprisingly I still had space for desserts and so we tried the Gooey Chocolate cake which was yummy. The Berry Ricotta Crumble looked better than it tasted and I would have finished it if it was tastier. I also tried their Classic Cold Coffee which I will recommend because it really was awesome!

Ambience– Located at Kemps Corner, Vicinia is a sweet little cafe and bar that replaced the famous Subway. With a mezzanine floor, Vicinia is adorned with simple and yet comfy-classy furniture. Its actually much larger than it looks from down. Well lit, it gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling and would be a great place to go on a date or simply catch up with a close friend.

Vicinia Cafe1Service– The staff is warm and know their stuff. Our food didn’t take too long to come and there were some nice recommendations from them which helped us pick what we did.

Prices– I wouldn’t say that the items on the menu are well priced because for the quantity you are paying much more. The portion size is small and you would have to call for many items to go out with a full stomach. The Cottage cheese skewers were for Rs.225, Cranberry & Goat Cheese Crostini Rs. 425, the mocktails were for Rs. 150, Margherita pizza was for Rs. 295, Veg Paprika with Herbed Rice was for Rs. 450. The gooey chocolate cake was for Rs. 250 and the Berry Ricotta crumble was for Rs. 200. The Classic cold coffee was for Rs. 135.

Verdict– A great place to meet a friend for a light snack and cold coffee. I recommend their Classic Cold Coffee, Cranberry & Goat Cheese Crostini and Veg paprika with Herbed Rice.

36 Oak & Barley, Gowalia Tank- Review

Roochster

36 Oak & barleyI went to 36 Oak & Barley for my best friend’s birthday dinner. I had heard good things about it and couldn’t wait to try the food and see for myself!

Food– We were super hungry when we reached and picked Nachos as the first item from the menu as a starter. The taste was good; the nacho chips were most certainly from a readymade packet and the quantity very less.  Next we tried their famous Chilly Cheese toast, nice but 4 pieces that were less even for one person and hence had to order one more. Next we tried their spiced scrambled cottage cheese bruschetta. Sounds fancy, right? Well, expect nothing more than paneer bhurji on bread. After that, I decided I just had to try their pizza and see if that was worth it. We called for two different ones. One was a simple margherita pizza with mushrooms, olives and onions as toppings. That was decent. The other one was a 3 cheese pizza, ok because it was quite bitter and the pizza sauce didn’t make the bitterness less. The herbed cheese pasta with bell peppers as topping was good but the quantity, less again. My cold coffee with hazelnut was divine! I wanted more but controlled. I wouldn’t recommend the desserts here at all. We had the Vertigo cake which was very ok and the Mud Cake which was bad. The ice cream was yum! For those of you who drink, they have happy hours throughout the day which means ‘buy 1 get 1 free’ on all alcohol options.

Ambience– Close to Cumballa Hill Hospital, 36 Oak & Barley wont be very easy to locate if you’re not familiar with Mumbai roads. It is close to August Kranti Maidan. Once you enter, you’ll find a chic and classy looking place with lots of space, a long bar and a big screen for watching matches. There’s also a smoking area made separately outside which is cool. A perfect place to go grab a drink!

36 O&B 2

Service– The service is very good! The waiter knew his stuff and was prompt. We got our food pretty quickly. It would be nice to see how it gets when the place is crowded. When we went, there were barely 4-5 tables full so the waiters didn’t have much to do but serve us well. Good job nonetheless.

Prices– The prices are a bit much for the quantity. The Nachos with cheese was for Rs. 225, the Chilly Cheese toast was for Rs. 150, the 3 cheese pizza and pasta were for Rs. 350 each, the cold coffee was for Rs. 150, the Mud Cake was for Rs. 325. We were 5 of us and the total bill amount was Rs.5600 with alcohol and taxes.

Verdict– The food is decent but not for the price. It’s an ideal place if you want to go grab a drink with your buddies. I recommend their cold coffee!

Cafe Sundance, Churchgate- Review

Roochster

Cafe SundanceSundance cafe is back after about 2 years, only more classy and sophisticated. However, it was my first time there and here’s what I thought.

Food– The Sundance menu is very cool! Designed like a newspaper with tempting visuals, it serves burgers, sandwiches, pizza, pasta, salads, sides and both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. My friend and I decided to share their Factory Nachos- Tortilla chips with cheese, guacamole, tomatoes. Now, it was good but the taste of the tortilla chips was so strong that we could barely taste the cheese sauce. Also, the quantity was barely enough for one person. For main course, my friend had the Terderloin Beef burger served with fries and salad. She really liked it but wished the bread was slightly crispier. I had the Penne in Alfredo sauce pasta sans mushrooms. It was good, a little bland but not meant for more than one person. Adding some bell peppers or corn would have helped. The Garlic bread was nice. My friend tried the Grapefruit Minty cooler which tasted more like Lemonade with a slight bitterness of Grapefruit. We were super full by now but decided to have a dessert anyway. We had their Baked Philadelphia cheesecake with Raspberry and really liked it but it would’ve tasted better warm. Also the sauce on the side tasted like Raspberry Tea sauce.

Cafe Sundance 2Ambience– I hadn’t eaten at the earlier one but I remember the decor used to be very different. Today, Cafe Sundance is classy, posh and expensive, located at Churchgate near Eros cinema. As you enter you’ll see an open kitchen to your left and a mezzanine floor above that. While you’re climbing the stairs, you’ll see some very cool items on display. The seating is comfortable and chic. The lighting is perfect. Also, they give the bill in an Archie’s comics book which is very unique!

Service– Our food came faster than expected and the staff is pretty efficient so no complaints there.

Prices– I understand that everything is getting very expensive but the prices at Cafe Sundance are a bit much for a casual dinner. The Terderloin burger was for Rs. 385, the Alfredo pasta was for Rs. 375, the Nachos were for Rs. 345, Grapefruit Minty cooler was Rs. 150, Cheesecake Rs. 240. And sadly I realized later that they charged us for a Garlic cheese bread when we had a normal Garlic bread portion. We were charged Rs.120 for it. With the taxes and service charge our bill amount came up to Rs. 1864!

Verdict– Good food, lovely ambience and prompt service but the prices are too high to go to for a casual meal.

California Pizza Kitchen, Lower Parel- Review

Roochster

I’ve tried the pizzas at CPK on two occasions, both times for free. Now, it’s a good thing because I love pizzas. Here’s my review.

Food– Apart from pizzas, they have soups, salads, sandwiches, appetizers, pastas, desserts, etc. I tried their thin crust pizzas- Margherita- super bland with a prominent taste of tomato, Spicy Cayenne (spicy cayenne pepper sauce with cottage cheese, sliced onions, red, yellow and green bell peppers)- too salty in some parts and bland in some. It was a weird pizza! Five cheese & Fresh Tomato pizza- Ok. Their thin crust pizzas are wafer thin and barely filling. For appetizers I tried the Mediterranean Wonton Spring rolls (Sautéed shitake mushrooms, grilled eggplant, sun-dried tomatoes, caramelized onions and cheese) and the Margherita Wonton Spring Rolls (Fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil, cheese) and again, both were superb bland! The Margherita was better though because of the cheese. So, in a way the food in general at CPK is bland and not meant for Indians.

Ambience– Walk into Phoenix Mills at Lower Parel, reach centre. Turn back towards Palladium and go up the escalator to California Pizza Kitchen. The place is dimly lit with comfy couches, a long bar and lots of brown! It looks more like a corporate place to dine rather than a place for young people or children.

Service– The staff is courteous and efficient. No complaints.

Prices– The wonton starter costs Rs. 295 which includes 2 types of wontons. The Margherita thin crust costs Rs. 425 and the Spicy Cayenne Pizza costs Rs. 325! So eating at CPK is not everyone’s cup of tea! Actually it would be, had the food been even remotely tasty!

Verdict– CPK is a big let down with probably the worst pizzas ever! Don’t even think about it!

Che Bar & Grill, Churchgate- Review

Roochster

I had passed Che Bar & Grill a couple of days back and made a note to myself that I’d definitely come and try it. Luckily, a plan was made and I got to check it out sooner than I thought! Here’s my review:

Food– The resto-bar serves Mexican, Italian, Cuban, American, French and Brazilian cuisine and a variety of spirits including Absinthe. We were 6 of us and decided to go all out and try as much as we could from the menu. For starters, we called for their legendary Nachos which were so good that we just couldn’t get enough of them! We also had a Veg combo platter which included vegetable skewers which were ok, onion rings and French fries which were nice and crisp and Cuban ‘bombas’ which were delicious! The non-veggies liked their Chicken Skewer Appetizer. After that we called for a Primavera pizza 10” (tomato sauce, grilled onions, bell pepper, sun-dried tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and asked them not to put aubergine) which was decent.  The Penne Pesto was yum and decided to repeat it. I personally didn’t like the veg Mexico burger (veg patty, tomatoes, lettuce, jalapenos & cream, chopped onions) and would prefer the burger at Mc Donald’s any day! The steak that the non veggies called for- Chicken steak lemon herbs and chicken mix grill were both good but the chicken could have been more tender. Also, the sauce that came along with it should have been more. I really wanted to try a dessert but everyone was too full to so we decided to skip that. Overall, the food was pretty good but it has scope for improvement. I loved the presentation which made the food look scrumptiously awesome! The quantity was just right.

Ambience– Che Bar & Grill is located at Churchgate near the famous ‘Eros’ theatre. It’s opened in place of the French restaurant- Chez Vous which was a high-end place that not many could afford to dine at. The décor at Che is simple, chic, comfortable and fun. Lots of red and cool pictures all around. The music they play is also fun. From the looks of it, college students from Jai Hind, KC, HR and Sydenham will frequent the place pretty often!

Service– Now this is what got us slightly disappointed. We were not served water till we were almost done with our first starter and that too we had to ask for. We were 6 of us and got only 4 glasses so again we had to ask for 2 more glasses. The AC was not switched on until we asked them to switch it on. Also, some of our dishes took ages to arrive which sort of killed my appetite.

Prices– The pricing is good and reasonable. The Nachos were for Rs. 199, the Veg Platter for Rs. 449, the Pasta for Rs. 229, the Veg Pizza for Rs. 229, the Chicken Mix Grill for Rs. 499 and so on. So including all the taxes and everything, we ended up paying Rs. 550 per head which is not bad considering how much we all ate! For those who find it a bit much for a casual meal can opt for their Lunch Buffet which is for Rs. 349 + taxes.

Verdict– Che Bar & Grill is a great place which had good food, a chilled out ambience, decent prices and service that can be worked on. Their Nachos are a ‘must have’!

Poncho, Kurla (w) – Review

Roochster

Poncho wasn’t listed anywhere online and I was really excited to try the food after being contacted by one of the owners to come, try the food and give feedback. I was wondering when I would go all the way to BKC but luckily a friend had her car and 4 of us foodie friends went there finally. I’m so glad I did!

Food & Prices– Poncho is a Mexican & Italian café/ restaurant and has food that will remind you of home food which tastes good and is superbly priced! The menu has so many tempting things that you may want to try everything. We sure did! Serious! You wont find this kind of food at such reasonable prices anywhere for sure! I’ll tell you exactly what all we had!

1)      Nachos with beans (Rs. 35) – Beans were more like Rajma beans and the cheese was simple melted cheese served on tortilla chips. The cheese was less but overall taste good.

2)      Burrito bowl with paneer & extra cheese (Rs. 75) – An awesome combo of so many things. Tasted nice.

3)      Soft Tacos (Rs. 35) – Fun fillings made it fun to eat!

4)      Margherita pizza with paneer & corn (Rs.90) – Yum!

5)      Misto pasta (Rs. 60) – Very good!

6)      Spicy Cheese Garlic Bread (Rs. 35) – Avoidable

7)      Quesadilla (Rs. 50) – It just had capsicum, cheese and onion but it was super tasty…almost perfect!

8)      Iced Tea (Rs. 20 each) – Strawberry, Lemon, Peach, Ginger Lemon, Black Currant. You name it; we tried it and loved them all!

9)      Lemonade (Rs. 15)– Good

10)   Cold Coffee (Rs. 35) – Just the way I like it!

11)   Oreo Chocolate Mousse (Rs. 45)– Good

12)   Dutch Truffle pastry (Rs. 45)- Could have been good but tasted stale

After having all this and filling our stomachs to the brim, we paid; wait for it, only Rs. 175 per head! Now isn’t that awesome?! I don’t know of many places where you can eat like a hog, try almost everything from the menu and pay less than 200 bucks! But but but, these prices are limited to this outlet only and if they do open another one, which I’m sure they will, the prices will not be the same so I suggest, go dig in at this place asap!

Ambience & Service– Perhaps the only drawback of this place would be the location. They’re located at the end of BKC, near Kurla (w) station at LBS Marg in an office building (Essar House). The restaurant is a simple, basic contemporary self service place with chic furniture. The waiter is sweet even though he’ll reply with a polite ‘yes’ to most of the questions asked to him whether or not he knows what you’re asking him. You’ll get your food within 5-10 minutes so don’t worry if you’re in a rush.

Verdict– Poncho is awesome! Total value for money for simple and good food! I recommend!

Food for thought, Fountain- Review

Roochster

So here’s another new café in town! Woohoo! Here’s why you must go try it!

Food– Their menu consists of Starters like Nachos, Jacket Potatoes, Jalepeno Poppers and the like, salads, sandwiches, bagels, pastas, desserts, coffees, teas and other cold beverages. They also have some stuff which is not on the menu so don’t forget to check the counter! My friend and I had decided to go just have some coffee but I got tempted to eat so I called for Alfredo pasta which sounded like a safe bet. My friend called for a black coffee which was pretty good. The good thing is that they ask you what veggies you want in your pasta before they make it. So I called for one with zucchini and capsicum. It was really good except for that it was a little dry. But I asked them to pour some white sauce in it after which it was perfect. We also decided to call for a dessert- Chocolate Ecstasy which comes with ice cream. It was ok, could have been more chocolatey. I’d love to try more food next time though!

Ambience– Located near the famous Flora Fountain, Food for thought is a little café in a bookstore called Kitab Khana. It reminds me of Cha Bar at Oxford Bookstore, Churchgate. Since it’s a part of a bookstore, you’ll find the place very quiet and peaceful. So if you’re with a bunch of friends and want to make noise, be ready to get stares from people! Go there if you’re with just one or a couple of friends. It’s a great place to have a work meeting too! The look of the café is chic and comfortable. I like! They’ve put up a few movie posters related to food on grey walls and that’s really cool! I also loved the mauve coloured stairs on the side.

Service– Our food was brought to our table within just a few minutes which was great! Also, when I asked them to add some white sauce in my pasta, they took it back and added some without any dirty looks. So I’d say the service is good.

Prices– The prices are perfect! The starters are priced at Rs. 80 each, the salads at Rs. 130, Sandwiches Rs. 150, Pasta Rs. 120, desserts at Rs. 120 and up, coffees and teas at Rs. 50 and up. After having 2 black coffees, 1 pasta and 1 Chocolate Ecstasy, the bill amount was Rs. 340 inclusive of taxes. Not bad at all huh?

Verdict– Food for thought is a great café and I’ll definitely go there more often! Great food, ambience, service and prices! Two thumbs up!

Some like it Hot, Andheri (W)- Review

Roochster

I went to this super duper fantabulous restaurant for my friend Rahul’s birthday and I just can’t wait to tell you what I thought of it! Read jjjallldddiiii!!

Food– Some like it Hot has a menu full of yummy things! Pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, sizzlers, risottos, burgers, soups, salads, fondues, Mexican food, mocktails, cocktails and what not! We called for the Paprika Cheese Fondue. They served it with grapes, bread, apples and some pickle and trust me, it’s the best I’ve ever had! We tried the creamy cheese pizza with mushrooms, olives and American corn as toppings which made the pizza taste delicious too! There was the Mexican Risotto with less cheese which was ok, could have been better. The Fusilli Alfredo pasta and Spaghetti Arabiatta pasta which also tasted really good. The non-vegetarians had Hot n Spicy chicken, mustard chicken which got over pretty quickly so I’m assuming it was good too.  The mocktails were a little disappointing though. I didn’t like Pomegranate Surprise at all and neither did anyone else who tried it. The Long Island Iced teas were decent. The quantity of food is very good and so is the taste. So it gets full marks in that department!

Ambience– Its located in Andheri west, next to 4 Bungalows and Lokhandwala. The décor is superb! The colours, the fun stuff on the walls, the black and white checked flooring, red seats and everything about the interiors is just amazing! I love it and so will you! Some like it Hot lives up to its name, only, instead of some, most will like it ‘cause it’s totally hot! 😛 They play great music too! From Whigfield’s Sexy Eyes to We no speak no Americano to a lot of foot tapping numbers, this place is fun, lively and charming.

Service– Since one of the people in our little group knew the manager there, we got excellent service. They were warm, recommended some really nice things to eat and didn’t mind the noise we made. Also, at 12, since it was my friend’s birthday they came with cake together singing with a lit candle. Now that’s really sweet!

Prices– Some like it Hot gives you great food, brilliant ambience and warm service at very good prices! They even have Happy Hours to let you enjoy a couple of drinks before biting into their yummy food. We were about 8 of us and the bill amount came up to less than 3500 which included alcohol, mocktails and food which filled us all up to the brim. I’d say its full value for money!

Verdict– In spite of it being more than an hour away from my place, I know that I’d definitely go there again. I loved everything about it! So I suggest you go give a shot to Some like it Hot!
