Four couples went there for dinner last nite and here are my thoughts:
The restaurant is nicely appointed. Its really a lovely atmosphere however if I was seated in the front part of the restaurant, I would not be happy as there is no "waiting" area and as soon as a party walks thru the doors - they are practically right beside the tables.
Thankfully we were seated at the back of the restaurant.
The cutlery, the plates, the goblets and the serving dishes certainly do add to the atmosphere they are trying to create.
As for the food...well...lets just say...it was OK...nothing stood out as "oh my - this is amazing and you have to try this".
I recently went to Tabla in New York and every bite was amazing!! As in "oh my - I need to visit this place again".
The naan - disappointing.
The service was pleasant but nothing outstanding either. No one smiles...just efficient.
I was surprised that the plates we used for our appetizers were not changed and for our main courses, we ate off of a 6 inch (ok maybe 8 inch) salad plate.
I was also suprised that when it came to dessert - our watier came by and asked "would anyone like tea or coffee". I asked for a mango lassi. When it arrived..I asked "do you have anything for dessert" and he said "yes - I will get you a dessert menu.".
The dessert menu arrives and funny enough, - mango lassi is not listed.
I also found it amusing that they serve gregs icecream. I would have to admit - that its the last place I would think of, that would serve roasted marshmallow ice cream.
Needless to say, we ordered it (coz many had never tried it) and shared it with 8 spoons.
Does anyone agree with me on my assessment of this resaurant?
