I have tried this restaurant several times but all the times either I ordered the food on phone or went for a ‘take away’. I always liked their food specially the Dal Tadka, so this fateful Sunday when maid took an off and I was faced with the proposition of cooking my food and cleaning the utensils too I decided to dine in here.
I never have been impressed by its ambience but never imagined it would be such a mess. The tables and chairs were unclean with food specs lying on them and on the floor. The table napkins were some old fashioned plastic ones which I guess they have been using for a decade now. What made it worse was that they had traces of all sorts of dishes made at the restaurant adding to the ‘yuck’ feel.
After seeing all this, I wondered what the condition would be inside the kitchen. The thought was enough to fill my stomach and make me leave.
Had heard a lot about Barbeque Nation when i was in Pune and finally got a chance to visit it. Since it was Sunday evening, we (two of us) reached the place early to avoid the dinner rush. I had read a lot of good things about the buffet here and therefore decided to give it a try.
In soups, we opted for Hot and Sour chicken soup which was nice. Once it was over we were literally bombarded with starters. There were so many varieties that we lost count. Each starter tasted yummier than the previous one and we just ended up overeating. There was little space in our tummies but we still decided to go for main course. The menu ranged from pasta to salads; from gravies in fish and chicken, to dal & Biryani and much more. We tasted a bit of Biryani which was delicious. And that’s not all, there were desserts too. I loved their Marble cake and Blueberry Cheese Cake while Chetan enjoyed their Gulab Jamun with Vanilla ice cream in chocolate sauce.
The buffet lived up to all its praises. We ate and ate and wished we could have had more. Infact we ate so much, that we didnt get a chance to savor the taste of individual items.
The ambiance at Barbeque Nation, Janakpuri was pretty nice. We got a seating for two in a quiet corner where we could chit chat and enjoy the food as well. The experience cost us around Rs 1200 and was totally worth it. I would love to go here with my family next time. Infact if you are looking for a family dining place, then do try Barbeque Nation.
