“absolutely lovely ambience and boy, is it huge”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

this place at WTC has an absolutely lovely ambience and boy, is it huge. However, yet on many weekends, you might have to end up waiting for a table. earlier frequented for Hookah, after the ban, people go there now to enjoy to just sit back and enjoy some cocktails often with a live band.

The drinks are good and served in unique glasses for e.g.: a nice pinacolada came in a funky coconut shell and a pineapple concoction in a half cut pineapple glass. Just adds to the charm of the place.

When it comes to food, the place is pretty good. You gotta try the Indian maincourse as opposed to the Italian. They also have special party packages for bigger groups.

“Huge spread, great value for money, confused waiters, Poor ambience.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

We went there on a Sunday hearing about their Value for money buffet. It was indeed vfm, priced at 777+ taxes, about 1000 bucks per person. Going by the price, the spread was pretty huge. They had good variety in the spread - Indian, Chinese, Thai, Khowsuey, Dimsums and most of them tasted well and some of them like the Fish Amritsari were absolutely delicious.

We were the first ones to arrive on that Sunday for lunch, the greeter lady politely escorted us to the tables after that no one just came, we waited for a while before someone came and really attended us.
The dining area is in the open courtyard of the World Trade Center building. They have covered up the roof with plastic sheets due to the rains hopefully! And installed pedestal fans around. It's kinda hot and noisy with the fans. There was also some carpenter work happening not so far away.
The waiters are at best real confused and appear clueless.

“Fantastic Spread - Ambience has room for improvement”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I have visited Flamboyante on numerous occasions and staying only 10 minutes away makes the location very convenient. The restaurant provides a mix of Oriental, Indian and Continental cuisine. The thin crust pizzas are to die for. I was also particularly impressed with the vegetarian tempura uramaki rolls. The tandoori mushroom and Momos as starters are also highly recommended.

I would say the restaurant could do with a little bit of maintenance / touch up. Disappointed that there is no loyalty / frequent visitor program.

“superb location with even better food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Flamboyante has wide open dining where table are distantly placed to give enough privacy, also they have ac section. They have wide selection from Indian, italian asian n even middle east cuisine. Best here are khowsey n desert missisipi mud-pie. however ever since it is introduced quality or menu is not getting better nor weaker so they have just able to maintain and not improve...

“Great but please improve on reservations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Flamboyante is known for its food and ambiance, however lately its dropping off the 'hot' list as the place has no idea on ideas on reservations, Not sure why they make the place overly heated..Food is good..portions are small and service is sluggish..would hate to see this drop even further....please improve.
