The Media Cafe

Restaurant details
Reviewed May 16, 2014

The cafe is located in a mall that does not seem to have very many visitors. The mall itself wears a semi-deserted look, and the cafe is almost empty! Not a good sign, I thought, but it came recommended by a friend and we wanted some peace to chat, so the lack of people served us well.

I'll start with the mocktails. Two amazing drinks from their menu are the Virgin Mary - with the perfect amount of tang, spice and salt. Heaven. And the other one is a Guava mocktail (I forget the name, but its very easy to find in the menu). This drink was a total surprise - the sweetness of the guava countered by a kick from the green chilli they added to it! Stunningly good!

The food is ok; not bad, but nothing extraordinary either. We tried various dishes like pav bhaji, wada pav (favourite snack from Maharashtra), tandoori aloo and so on.

The tables have enough space, and there is also a traditional seating area where you can sit on small mattresses laid out on the floor (food is served on squat tables).

Overall, good to visit for the mocktails and if you want a quiet place to talk.

Media Cafe started by 2 ex -- media executives seems like a very interesting place with the menu and the walls flooded with jargon that media guys like us make a living out off.

The place is also extremely spacious with ground deep seats. But the food is very very ordinary. In fact was really excited to see a truly cosmopolitan menu with great dishes, but the Indian fare turned out to be a disaster.

The biryani was cold and the tikki (spicy version of hash brown potatoes) served with chick pea was tasteless. In fact it tasted like pre-cooked food shoved into the microwave in a hurry. The dollops of gravy thrown in could not really salvage whatever lil there was to the dish.

The service was attentive and good but it is sad that the food washed away any possible good impact. BTW the Mojito was nice :)

Ambience not that good but food quality excellent. Nice place to spend time with friends. Has a smoking zone as well which was of great help unlike other places
