Ground Floor, Shaival Complex,
Opposite Rajpath Club,
S G Highway,
Stopped here for a quick bite today. I loved the wide open spaces. This is a place designed for chilling out, but not for comfortable dining (low seating, low tables, etc). So its fitting that the food on offer is more snacky than full meals, which works well for the seating.
The decor seems a bit confused, some telescopes on one wall, posters on another, metal chains on a pillar, leather cases on another wall. Not sure what the person doing the interiors was thinking, but to me it seemed like a lot of stuff that was interesting when seen alone, was all used up to try and fill this space. But its a bit disjointed and there are still a lot of blank spaces around.
The music playing in the background, was much louder than most other cafes, but not to the point that made conversation difficult.
The food that we did try was quite good. Lovely French fries (65/-) and the quantity was huge, almost double that of a McDonalds large, the paneer foccacia (95/-) had some really well marinated and extremely soft paneer in the filling. The chilly paneer roll (95/-) had a little too much onion for my personal taste, but was a good balance of flavours.
The cold coffee (60/-) however was excellent and mum loved her mango shake (80/-), that she said wasn't overly sweet like at some of the other places that I have taken her to.
The food all comes wrapped in disposable packaging and they give you ample ketchup sachets on the side.
They do add a 5% service tax, but they also award you reward points with each order and it is linked to your mobile number.
Next time I visit I might try their healthier brown rice and sprout salad options, but today I was content focusing on their carb laden dishes.
