Open House is located at the Nakummatti crossing road opposite the Westlands mall.The entrance is not impressive from the front but through a side alley.It was the Indian independence day & expecting a big crowd,i had booked my table for 2 in advance.I was met & greeted by Mr. Matthew who is the jt. owner of this restaurant along with Anil.
After entering i turned left & hit the Bar.Met some fine people & swapped travel stories with fellow travelers.Their `In house ` wine is good & recommend especially the white one.I liked the informal atmosphere & con.exchanges as compared to the more formal`Haandi Restaurant just across the road in westlands mall which does not have an independent bar room.
The reserved tables are on the first floor & was guided to my table by a waiter.All the tables on the ground & first floor were filled up mostly with local & Indians from all over the world with a sprinkling of other western foreigners.The atmosphere was relaxed & chatty.For starters we ordered ginger fried prawns.The order came fast & well prepared.Next was Tandoori fish Tikka & Goan Fish curry both very good.Last we had their much acclaimed Boneless mutton Biryani which was excellent in taste & aroma.For Dessert we had some good Kulfi. For the excellent food & friendly informal ambience the bill was really value for money.The only drawback was the small toilet which was only on the first floor which appeared as a temporary wooden partition in the small corner used by all customers in the bar,first & 2nd floor.
We will return & highly recommend this restaurant.
