“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Bar B Q is a multicuisine restaurant. Food is good and the ambience is overall nice. It has very good seating capacity but on special occassions as on christmas, you have to wait for hours to get a seat. Otherwise seating is not a problem and food is relishing.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

I have known this restaurant for almost 25 years now. Everything on Park St. is very nostalgic for me.
This restaurant use to serve some real tasty food in my childhood but sadly enough it is becoming lousier by the day. The attitude of the waiters and stewards is bad and insulting at times.
In the Indian section, they did not have Butter Chicken Boneless! The most common dish at any Indian/Mughlai restaurant in the country! When asked, the steward replied very coldly, "this is how it is here..." I think their senior staff noticed it(thankfully) and got this prepared, I appreciated it but the taste was bad!
The decor is fine. Pricing is above average.
Evenings are worse(noisy).
I would give it may be one more shot next time just for the nostalgia sake!

“Not the same Bar B Q”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Too much of chaos , service has gone down drastically. Ordering process has become cumbersome , hosts have become old , short-tempered and seems to have lost interest. Bathrooms are unhygienic and smelly, we had a very bad experience

“Can not be another Bar b Q!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Well what can you say about a place where you need to search for a seat any and every time you go, I have been going there for the last 10 years and its still the same. The food is great, prices lower than the market, heart full portion sizes and the same old world hospitality. Though people being nostalgic to this "evergreen" prefer it the way it is (including me) but the place needs a bit of sprucing up in its interiors. Done or not it is still in every peoples heart who has visited the place...Old lady...keep rocking!
