Sanchita Sarkar

This place has long been on my list. Visited on 15th August with a group of friends. The music, the ambience, the food everything is excellent. We ordered 4 items from starter and main course (can’t recall the name right now ), 1 mocktail ( some lychee mojito I guess and it was a good suggestion ), 2 redbulls, 1 coke , 1 dessert and hookah. The pork item from main course was delicious. Served with rice ,the portion was good. Also liked grilled fish with mashed potato. But the winner is the dessert “Guptaji Toast”. It was Delicious with capital D and the portion was huge enough to be shared by 5 – 6 people. Pricing I found quite reasonable won’t burn a hole in purse. 0.5 is deducted for 2 reasons : one is I so wanted to try out that Japanese pork item from starter section which was not available and the other reason is the music was loud so at times it was very difficult to understand what the other person was saying. Loved this place. Looking forward to visit again.

This place was on my list from very long and I wasn’t disappointed at all.
Situated on the topsia road just behind the mahindra showroom, this place has it all!!
Decor- Right from the entrance you ll know that you are gonna have a good time!!!
the Lego-Bar is top notch, high seated chairs and dim lights and foot tapping music. Just the blend for a perfect Saturday night .
They have 2 seating arrangements, one at the ground and another on the 1st floor which is mostly a smoking zone and a lil more private.

Food- So we ordered the Paneer tikka for starters which so soft and well marinated. Loved it. Next we ordered for the Oven fresh garlic bread with cheese and that was good too. (I wanna have some more while I write this). And lastly we ordered the Juhu Beach noodles which were basically the spiciest noodles I have had. Chilli Garlic noodles made in green chilly sauce and topped with green chillies. (Fire in mouth) and I loved it. It was super!

Drinks- We ordered for kamikaze shots and it was great followed by LIT and Tequila Sunrise.
Love the drinks.

The sheesha was super as well. Ordered for brain freezer and definitely had a great time.

I will specially mention Tapan, he was serving us and he was very cordial . He even suggested us the drinks and food and was at constant service.

Grid, can’t wait to come back!!!!
