First the good things about this popular, old place:
1. There is a very good range/spread of good food you are served here - ranges from continental cuisine (and italian in particular) to standard but very well made Indian dishes such as Prawns curry rice. for those wanting to try parsi food, this are multiple Dhansak options.
2. Family oriented atmosphere/ ambience -- the ambience of this place is a strong plus. Makes it a very nice place to take your family to.. for those wanting a lot of privacy, perhaps not that great an option. But dont get me wrong -- its not a noisy place at all.
3. Food tips - Try the prawn curry rice, fish fingers (for starters), chilli toast (a good veggy option for starters); you may wash all this down with a pint of beer.
What to avoid -- Fancy sounding mocktails such as the Mocambo Khush Hua are a NO-NO. Just stay true to the basics at this place as far as drinks are concerned.. a cold coffee and an ice tea both turned out to be predictably good. One of the chicken rolls I tried at this place was also quite ordinary.
SEATING - We got a place on the first floor- avoid sitting at the first tables as soon as you climb up the stairs. The waiters appear to be always hovering around .. a bit too close for comfort. Overall, one must try gettin a place at the ground floor itself.
Though some people have recommended the Italian at this place, we found the formaggi at this place a bit too spicy.. the chef was a bit too liberal with the pepper !!
Value for Money - pretty decent. our bill of 2 starters, 2 main dishes, 2 beers, 1 ice tea, 1 cold coffee, 1 mocktail came to 1700 rupees and was pretty decent for 3 persons.
Overall a decent place that I would recommend anyone in and around the Fountain / Fort area.
