Lunch from LunchPI...

City is witnessing a lot of technology based food start ups, which operate on delivery only mode. One such newbie in town is LunchPi.com. Was seeing reviews about this place from fellow foodies in various forums. One fine day, decided to try them out for lunch. Holiday due to rain and being struck at home had made kiddo a little cranky. So decided to go with his wish and ordered a Chicken alfredo pasta, chicken lasagne and a garlic n palak chicken tikka. Placed orders through their website and paid through net banking. There was no confirmation call/sms/mail for about 20mins from placing the order (I placed orders around 12.20 pm). Called them around 12.45 and got a reply that there was the problem with the network and they are working on my orders and will be delivered shortly. And the wait continued for about an hour and got my food by 1.30. Ms. Uthra, the person behind LunchPI apologised for the delay.

Coming to the food, it was neatly packed with wooden spoons and forks in a big carton box. We were already very hungry and the kid was not ready for more pics. So just took a few pics and jumped in. The chicken tikka was a mixed bag. Out of the 5 pieces the two I had was very tough and fibrous meat. Kiddo was generous enough to let me have one more. The other one I had was juicy and soft. Weird. The roasted garlicky flavour worked well with the smooth and yummy green chutney. The pasta was very good with generous amount of chicken. It was cheesy and creamy and kiddo enjoyed it. The lasagne however was so so. Spicy and tangy semi gravy with minced chicken layered between two sheets of lasagne and topped with loads of pasta sauce. The lasagne sheets were quiet thick and was not cooked uniformly. The flavour of Italian herbs (the mixed one) were over powering (even in the pasta the herbs were dominating). Reducing the amount of white sauce on the top and adding some more cheese would've lifted the dish to a desirable level.







Portion were pretty decent and the total bill was 430 bucks. Pricing seems to be moderate but value for money was a question mark here. I could neither say it was VFM nor not worth. It was in between. Later sometime, Uthra called and received the feedback for the food. I was also informed that as a part of some campaign, they are donating food for every purchase. A good gesture.
