Highly NOT RECOMMENDED! Would not even go there ever again and will not tell my friends about it. Read for more information.
I was looking around for places to eat around the Petitenget/Oberoi area. I came across this restaurant "The Living Room" and the name itself struck me so I thought I'd go by and have a visit!
I decided to visit them on the 17th with a bunch of my friends, now I knew I should have made a reservation, but what shocked me even more was that the place was dead empty! The hostess reminded me of a cheap girl you would pick up on the side of the street. I didn't like the 'vibe' that she was giving me, even though the amount of politeness and courtesy was given.
I looked around the restaurant and I didn't feel too welcome. It was very eerie and I felt like it was some graveyard - not because of the emptiness, but the atmosphere I was given back... creepy.
We all chose the outdoor seating near the fountain which was close to the kitchen. The waitresses were nice and the complementary dish sent out was three ciabatta breads and a wakame bread. I asked if the bread were freshly baked today because it was stale and tasted quite horrid. The waitress said yes, though I just couldn't believe it.
We ordered one Beef Carpacio for the three of us and the plate given was smudged with fingers - disgusting! The dish was too salty as well.
Our main course came by, one had risotto, another had salmon and I felt like having the good old steak. The vegetables that came with all of our dishes, some were under-cooked and some were overcooked. Seasoning was bland and there really wasn't enough sauce on our plates.
We planned to order the chocolate mousse however it was unavailable. I asked why to the waitress and she stated that none of the chef's in the kitchen can make a ganache, so the mousse melts! What a joke. We pay a lot for this food and they can't accomplish such things. We wonder whether we're really being ripped of by the food quality and the price.
In the end, we decided to order a creme brulee and cheese cake. The desserts were alright though we thought that the prices were not worth for the quality.
This place is a huge joke and should not even be called a fine dining restaurant. Don't come near, it's horrible and unprofessional! Even the manager didn't want to take upon the commentaries and had to call the owner's son.
