It was indeed a very special day for me (my Star Birthday!) hence, Flynn and I decided to go to Rcity, Ghatkopar- do some shopping, have some great food and roam around the usual.
As we were walking by, we came around to a place which was filled with different types of dining places. After a lot of discussion, we decided to go to Punjab Grill. I was really very excited because I love Punjabi food and I had my expectations really high from this place.
The ambience of this place is suitable for family and children and it has a decent décor around with some huge chair and tables which is decently comfortable.
Coming to the food – we ordered Dahi Ke Kabab, Murgh Malai Tikka as starters and Amritsari Malai Kofta, Saag Ghosht, Roti and Rice as the main course, with a Fresh Lime Water.
I had really heard a lot about the Dahi Ke Kabab and I was really really looking forward to it but I was disappointed, I expected it to have a blend of flavours and a little mix of spice and sweet into it as it is a kabab, but it was just filled with dahi and the outer was fried nothing unique or tasty about it.
The Murgh Malai Tikka, Flynn thought was a little dry, but it was still very soft. It enhanced by the flavour of the spice but it would have been better if it came with some gravy.
Coming to the Amritsari Malai Kofta it was creamy and really tasty it went very well with roti. It is not something you may want to have it with rice because there is no balance of taste for it to go with rice.
Saag Ghosht, this was also non-veg, so I didn’t have any, but Flynn thought it was really nice. The spinach flavour was the real hero but the lamb was really soft and melted in your mouth.
Finally, we decided to end our meal on a sweet note so we ordered the Assorted Dessert Platter. It had Phirni, Chocolate Gulab Jamun and Litchi Ki Tehri. Starting with Phirni, it had the perfect balance of sweet in a desert and it was my favourite among all of them. The Chocolate Gulab Jamun was really good, it was hot so it gave that relief from both the other deserts with were served right from the refrigerator. Last but not the least the Litchi ki Tehri, it wasn’t anything extra ordinary it felt just like Phirni with Litchi in it, the litchi pieces added the extra crunch and flavour to the dessert.
Overall though, the food was strictly okay and there was nothing really great about it, but one thing that no one can miss is that its freakishly expensive, we almost paid 4,000/- for just 4 dishes (Rs. 1000 just in taxes!), and it’s a lot and its not really that great of an experience that is worth paying so much for!
