I'm writing a review of Basil n' Bean Sec-35, which is a part of the Bistro-Flamme Bois.
Pasta's ok. Pasta standard for me has been set by Oven Fresh (esp. mushroom pasta with white sauce) and frankly nothing's beaten that in Chandigarh, not even that of the pricey Toy Hotel's. So I wasn't expecting much from Basil n' Bean and they catered well (by being just average).
I'm a li'l confused about Service Charge that some restaurants charge and some don't, then there's Service Tax on that and of course there's the VAT.
So we were taxed 97/- on a bill of 500/- and frankly their preparation wasn't good enough to titillate the tongue (the wine was fine but then it was decanted from a bottle!!).
Ambiance is not bad, albeit a bit cramped.
Verdict: mildly avoidable.
