Yellow Chillies Noida Sector 63

Yellow Chillies , Noida Sector 63 – An experience to remember

It was our quarterly project party time, and Yellow Chillies in Sec 63 Noida was zeroed down on. Yellow Chillies is headed by the very famous Chef – Sanjeev Kapoor.  My previous experience to Yellow Chillies restaurant is Sector 18 was a disaster  so i was quite apprehensive.

This branch of Yellow Chillies in Noida Sector 63 has both Buffet and Ala Carte options. We decided to go for former but upon reaching the place we got to know that there was half an hour wait for the Buffet section (Lesson – Reserve your table in advance, even if you r going on a weekday), so we went with the Ala Carte option.

The interiors are very well done and spacing is good enough for large groups (We were a group of 10). They also have a Bar which added to the Fine Dining experience.

The menu was “pretty”. Yes they had yummy looking images of dishes adding to the tempation. Customary to Yellow Chillies, the prices were quoted in words and not in numbers.

Now coming to food. I was a part of the non veggies group so will talk about that only. For starters we had Lawrence Road Tandoori Murg (Full). It had 8 pieces and was delicious. For main course we had Mutton Rogan Josh, Lazeer Murg Teekha Makhani, and Butter Naans. The service was a little below the expectation. We had to wait for 20 mins for the main course to arrive.

Both of the gravy items in the main course had 5 pieces – sufficient for 4 people. The chicken dish was good if not excellent, however the Mutton Rogan Josh was the best I have had till now. One bite of it and all of us were in 7th heaven. The pieces were tender, cooked to perfection and the gravy was just superb. It was so delicious that we were fighting for the last bit of it J.

The best part was the bill. We had expected a bill of around Rs 6000+ but it came out to only Rs 4550 (after 15% corporate discount). That just added another star to our experience.

In all,  I would give 5/5 to this place. If you are looking for fine dining restaurants in noida, then i would highly recommend Yellow Chillies in Noida Sector 63 (not the one in Sector 18) to one and all.


Yellow Chillies, Noida, Sec 18

It was a special Sunday morning, coz it was our parent’s anniversary. We decided to celebrate the magnifique occasion at the quite famous Yellow Chillies, Noida opened by the one of India’s popular chefs – Sanjeev Kapoor. As we had heard a lot about this restaurant, the expectations were undoubtedly were high.

We reached the restaurant at 8 in the evening. The ambiance was rather dull. As its T20 season, the restaurant was promising live experience on big screen, but all there was a LCD TV, showing the match – in rather poor quality – disappointing start indeed.

Over the years, I have seen restaurant coming up with innovative ways of fooling customers, but nothing beats Yellow Chillis. The menu was quite deceiving. It had the prices written in words below the dish description in such a way that it remained unnoticeable.

We ordered Lifafedaar Paneer and Mahi Tikki Kali Miri (a type of fish tikka) for starters along with a Mojito and Fresh Lime Soda. While paneer was quite tasty, the fish tikka was rather bland. Mojito looked like ice cubes served in a glass. Further disappointed by all this, we ordered main course – Lalla Mussa Daal, Paneer Kalimirch, along with Peshawari Naan and Tandoori Rotis – hoping and praying for some reprieve. But as is famously said – ‘Abhi to bas shuruwaat hui hai, aagey aagey dekho hota hai kya.

When our orders were served my mom’s reaction was ‘dats called quantity’. The bowls were huge, but as soon as we dipped spoon in it, we realized that there was an inner container inside. So while the bowl had 5 inches depth, the inner ‘empty’ container occupied 90% of the space. Huh..

We tried to focus on food but it was highly unappetizing. Any other restaurant nearby would be serving much much better food than this crap. Our whole evening was left ruined but still I learnt quite a few ways about business tactics….THANKS to yellow chillies for making my experience so remarkable…..
