Pind Balluchi, Noida

Pind Baluchi is a restaurant based on village theme, in Great India Place, popularly known as GIP. Just outside the restaurant a village man greets you, and you wonder who that man is? And the very next moment you realize that its just a life like statue only. Just seeing this statue i was forced to go inside the restaurant. As you enter the restaurant, you will see a large (artificial) banyan tree. We were luckily offered a seat under it. As i sat there i felt relaxed and refreshed. I knew it was the A/C but it felt different.

Next we got the menu and started searching for some delicious dishes. We ordered Shammi Kabab & Seekh Kabab for starters, and Dal Makhani and Paneer Lajawab along with butter naan for main course. Food was served in large, heavy exquisite plates, and was superb. I became a fan of the restaurant the minute i took the first bite. Salt, pepper, mirch, and masaley, everything was perfect. Paneer lajawab was indeed worth its name.  Words like yummy, tasty, mamma mia, were coming to my mind. Though my stomach was full but wo Hindi main kya kehtey hain ‘dil nahi bharaa’. 

The service, ambiance, everything was worth the money spent.

Chor Bizarre sec 16 looks very plush from the outside, but is quite affordable for a nice, tasty meal. I really liked the ambiance, with a quite a few options available in terms of seat arrangements. Some of them more suited for a family, some more suitable for couples.

We went on a Saturday afternoon when the crowd wasn’t much. Rather it was quite empty and silent. The décor of the space is vintage and has a vintage car, which is used to serve the buffet. We went for ala Carte, as buffet seemed an expensive deal for the miser couple. 😛

We ordered a Pithi paneer with butter naans. Pithi panner was yummy. It was basically thin paneer skin with a spicy filling of lentil paste, served with rich gravy. Butter naan was nice too. In all a nice place to go if you have some good money in your pocket (A three course meal for 2 will cost around 1000 Rs) and you are looking for a decent, quite place.

It’s not so crowded on a working day and Saturday noon. No clue about the rest of the weekend spans though.Service is also nice, and decently prompt.
