Canteen Lunch at Bombay Brasserie

Bombay Brasserie is one of my favourite places when it comes to fine dining options. My previous experience here was too good. So when we were looking for late lunch options after a movie, we decided to try their canteen menu. Called them up to know whether we can drop in at that time (it was close to 3pm) and they said yes. We Checked in around 3pm and got seated immediately. The place was fairly occupied even at that odd time for lunch. We straight away asked for two canteen lunch and they handed over the menu of the day (It's a rotating menu with few changes in starters and curries). Along with that we placed our orders for mocktails.

Food was served really quickly. Started off with chicken soup served in chai glasses. Soup was thin and perfect, very soothing. We also tasted the tomato soup which was good too. An array of starters including vada pav, assorted pakode, chicken roomali roll, paneer roomali roll, rawa fry fish, rawa fry mushroom, aloo kheema and onion rings. Out of all the aloo kheema was well made and I loved the onion rings. It was crispy and the chat masala sprinkle on the rings took it another level. The chicken roomali roll was yummy. With juicy, well marinated chicken and thin and soft roomali roti it tasted very good. Rest of all the starters lacked salt and hence we couldn't relish it much.

I loved the kache aam ki sherbet. That's my favourite here. My friend's order was some jungle book. The description said it has black salt and the drink didn't have any trace of it. We later (well 4 days to be precise) realised we were served another drink and not what we ordered :P :P

For main course it was 3 veg curries, 1 mutton curry and a chicken curry. Both the non veg curries were lip smackingly good. Particularly the mutton was literally melt in the mouth type. First serving of butter naan was decent and the tandoori roti was very hard. I went for second helping of the naan, which was amazing. Soft as well as crispy at the edges with generous butter it was too good. We were also served prawn biriyani with raita. While the rice tasted good and spicy, I felt it was more like tawa pulao. Not biriyani. Not even the bombay type ones. Prawns in the biriyani were bad.

Desserts were pretty plain except the gulab jamun. It was the tiniest I've ever scene but it was absolutely delicious. Loved it to bits. The choco bar was so so. And the trifle pudding was very bad. Shamelessly asked them to give us the ice colas and relished them a lot.

Canteen lunch is 575 ++ and along with couple of drinks (175 each) the total bill was 1700. Service was top notch, very polite and attentive. In my opinion they need to tweak the menu a little bit. Quality is more important over the quantity or number of dishes. We gave our feedback and it was received well.
