Had dinner at this joint last night - jotting down my observations

The Good
Super fast seating by the hostess
Ease of access located in an area with easy access and ample roadside parking- surprise google maps worked in blore right till Oyster bay entrance
Some really good starters - Shrimp and Prawns

The Bad
Almost no option for a la carte - they have a menu but comes with the warning that might take 45 mins to get the order so i guess a la carte is just for show
Some not so good starters - paneer felt un marinated and chicken kabab was so so
Somewhat slow service - had to ask the servers each time to replenish water
Decor - really really bad I mean it's a upscale restaurant and the tables are the kind you see in office cafeterias, chairs are somewhat better but not in the league of other restaurants of same grade, lighting a mix match of different styles


The ugly
Some of the main course dishes - mainly dal makhani was yuck - it was watery
Some dessert items were not replenished at all
My drink was pina colada - worst pina colada I ever had

This restaurant sells itself as a specialty sea food restaurant, did not find anything special and not much of sea food in the menu - will not be visiting again

My friends told that its a good restaurant but personally I didn't like it. The starters were cold when served. They had very minimal veriety for veg. May be that day was an odd day which happened to be mine. ;-)
You can give a try. There were some good offers on beverages, buy-1-get-1.

Good place for a spot of dinner i would say because i only had the chance to have dinner at this place. The seafood is good here, except maybe for the deep fried prawns which seemed oil drunk. The lounge bar facility has comfortable seating and a good ambience.

We had been to Oyster Bay for dinner on Sunday evening. We were received at the door and shown around the lounge and the restaurant. I felt that they were very flexible about where we chose to sit. They even agreed for us to sit in the Lounge area and have dinner buffet. I really appreciated the courteous and enthusiastic service.

Starters were the highlight. They were flexible here as well, they offered to provide me grilled starters instead of what was available there. Norwegian Salmon ordered from the menu was really worth a mention. It was the best I had in India.

The salads, main course and desserts were a major let down. Most of them ranged from Average to poor. Some of them actually left a bad taste in the mouth.

Ambiance is nothing great to talk about. It would remind of a cafeteria at a work place. Lounge area was slightly better.

Pricing was decent and was not over the top.

Would I go back here again? Its a definite NO.
