One of the hidden Jewels of CP.
was introduced to this place by a very close friend.
The place looks like a typical 80's diner. The Life size replica of Bumblebee just as you enter the door leaves you gasping for more. you glance around at the walls and you will find almost every wall covered with frames and pictures of american cars,bikes,fashion,planes, neon signs. this place is a petrolheads delight.
the music was very nice and the food was equally fantastic
we had the Mexican Woodfired Pizza and the Spinach and pesto pasta.
and a must have here if you are going for a brunch is the Country Special Omlette ! with Jalapenos.
the food was lip smacking for the lack of better word.
Decently priced not to heavy on the wallet.

The Bumblebee greets you inside Route 04, one of the most happening and one of my favorite restaurants in Connaught Place. There are 2 levels of seating and if you do smoke then it’s the upper level where you’d like to sit.

Unbelievable but true. Route 04 has a very well maintained and well ventilated smoking area unlike the lousy one at The Bar. Service is prompt and the HAPPY HOUR starts at 2 O Clock sharp yes you get 50% off on drinks.

In the early hours, you’d found the corners occupied by couples and restaurant mostly empty but as the days go by the energy level starts to pick up. Décor is a mix of mean machines. Find photo frames of Harleys, GTs, Vintage Cars, Smiths & Wessons hanging over the walls.

Lighting is just perfect. Any where you sit, the place is really great with music that is not loud, games on TV that is not cricket and crowd that is not rowdy.

Sit with the bartender if you do want to see the video along with the music (If it’s not a live Hockey or Football match). Or you may even play crosswords and X & O game which are placed on the tables on the ground level.

The music is fantastic even though repetitive with them playing The Doors, Cranberries, Metallica, Rolling Stone, Pearl Jam and a heady mix of rock n roll, swing and classic.

I am not a foodie so don’t have much to say about it but I found American Chicken Skewers absolutely delightful. Nachos are better avoided but I have good reasons to believe that the lunch would be good. But I also have a reason to believe that foods are priced very high with even starters like Salad starting from 300 and above and normal food starting from 550 or so.

Drinks are pretty affordable with Budweiser Pint @220. In happy hour 50% is off. So for a 1200-1500 you could have10 pints. Cocktails are also good but don’t expect the kick from them as you do when you have a cocktail at a Golden Dragon especially the Mai Tai or Cosmopolitan. Try the LIIT Pitcher for kick if you are in group.

Reserve your seat in advance if it is evening or after dark as the place gets packed.

Firstly, that Bumblebee autobot as soon as you get in is just insane!

The place is huge with a really big and well ventilated smoking section as well. As i had to while away time waiting for friends, i decided to go through the menu. I ordered a "Freshly squeezed" Orange Juice while at it.
The menu was an absolute delight going through. Pictures, names, random trivia; all good. But what hit me hard were the prices of food. I mean like an average of 500 bucks for any dish was quite bizzare (or so i thought). The waiter arrived with the juice. He made sure that he didn't make it look like a flowery cocktail as per instructions. One sip and boom! Real packed juice was what the served. Quite disappointed i sat and my friends joined.

And that's when they mentioned about the 50% off on booze and 30% on food. It is an offer that runs there all through the day, everyday; they just don't talk about it. Suddenly, the food and the drinks were a lot more affordable. The DJ played the usual classic rock playlist with some Tool and Pearl Jam. He even played Colour Haze on request which was amazing!

It is definitely a nice place to hang out. Will go again.

The place is really good as the variety of alcohol is a lot. Along with this there is a separate area for smoking. The happy hours makes the visit more interesting . The only issue is that you have to reach early to get a place as it gets crowded.
