Kabab King, Kalyani Nagar

Kabab King

Rajiv had come down from Delhi here for Rakhi. I have been knowing Rajiv since Infy times when we went to Kodaikanal together. So we met yesterday i.e. friday and went to dine together. I earlier thought of taking him to Shisha, ABC Farms, Koregaon Park but then it was 8 and Shisha would have been too crowded by then. So, as is my nature, i decided to try a new restaurant and took him to Kabab King, Kalyani Nagar. The restaurant says that it offers Mughlai delicacies and since i hadnt had non veg it looked yummy to me.

However the experience was quite disappoining. We ordered a variety of  chicken seekh kabab for starters, with coke (Unfortunately they dont serve any soups). The main course consisted again of chicken only – chicken drum sticks and one more dish whose name i dont remember. Unforunately both of them were not tasty and the quantity was also too less.

The restaurant was not crowded at all, considering the fact that it was Friday night. The ambience was just ok, nothing much to talk about.

Overall the restaurant s quite expensive. It cost us a bill of 800, just for the two of us. Too much compared to the size and taste.

In a nutshell, i wont recommend this restaurant and give it just 1.5 out of 5.

The restaurant could do by improving its menu card-mentioning against each dish whether its spicy or medium spicy, red gravy or green one, etc. The spicy variety of dish is just medium spicy. Taste definitely needs to be worked upon.


Bhairavi restaurant, Baner

Bharavi is a purely vegetarian restaurant, located on Baner road. The restaurant has its own underground parking, which is a boon if you are going there in the rainy season. The restaurant has three different seating sections: open air, covered and AC. The open air seating area lacks in terms of cleanliness n maintenance. The tablecloth is a little too dirty if you are a cleanliness freak. It is just on the road; therefore the hustle bustle of the city is a disturbance if you wish to dine outdoors.

The covered seating section was also a little suffocating, and the seats are too close to find your own little space. We didn’t check out the air-conditioned section, which is on the first floor.

We ordered a hot n sour and a manchow soup. After that we ordered the main course, which was a variety of Paneer with roti and nan. Overall the food taste and quality was just Ok. Nothing rememberable.

The service was prompt and the person assisting us with the food was helpful, polite and very attentive. He took care of what could be needed by us, and on regular intervals asked us if we needed something. But at the same time he took care to not to irritate with his regular intervention. The ambience was nothing great. Rather I would rate it a little below average. Basically it’s a family restaurant and not the perfect place to have a party. Just a decent place to eat if you don’t wish like cooking for a day. All together I would rate it 4.5 on a scale of 10.
