I am so so dissapointed about this excuse of an italian restaurant in Kolkata city center, that i do not even feel like wrtiting this. The only thing premium about Hush is the price list, you really feel as if you are having food in Rome or may be they take it a notch higher. sample this one pizza, one so called seafood main course, garlic bread without cheese and bottled water is 40 euros!! and what do you get?
The italians started Pizza as the " Margherita" which is pretty simple to do a faux pas and they did just that..tomato puree, amul cheese (i can bet the cheese was no mozarella forget having the buffalo variety! ) and - hold your breath- no basil leaves while i have asked the steward )(Dilip) twice about it. When asked, i was told now a days the basil leave is pre mixed in tomato and olice oil!! and when i politely asked them not to gaff around, i was given freshly cut basil leave over and already baked pizaa...what!!...i was bowled over. where has the chef done his course or is it his first day on earth making pizza?
Next comes the sea food course which was advertised to be with fresh squid, betki (sea perch) prawns in white cheese and Asparagus. What comes hard frozen squid rings, stale fish fillet (carp?), prawns (wow!) and ?...brocolli. The sause was ok. They do not even inform that asparagus is not available if we would still want to go for it. The attitude is huge- We make italian food take it or leave it. The manager refused to come and I was told he was not there, this was prime time weekend evening and he is absent from office, wow!. The chef came and tried his best to make me understand his understanding of italian cuisine, well i am no chef but i do know my food and more so when i am paying from my pocket. I was told to have anything comlimentart but i told them since I am going to proactively ask people not to have food at your place, I am going to pay for it and will not leave any tip.
The decor is dark so that you cant see what you are getting, the stewards have no clue about italian food, forget the ingredients and the chef (Raj) told me to inform him before hand next time when I come. Why? are you going to elope from the bistro?
Very sad experience. Money and time very badly wasted. And when i come back to trip advisor, I see lot of similar comments. I do not know who owns this place and if the owner knows how badly this place is messing the food. Why italian, do not go for any food at all to this place.
