Here is one simple recipe of getting repeat business for restaurants: Make a good looking feel good place in terms of ambience, throw in a good palate of not-very-exotic stuff the junta will identify with, and put in some smiley service! And yeah, keep the pricing for the food not very out of this world! Voila... You've got the magic potion of getting the customer back again for the food and the smiles!
I've been to this joint just once with a friend who has been here 5 times already. Nice lovely seating and ambience, an air-conditioned cabin and then some open air seating too. Missed their 5 hour long happy hours, but hey, who cares as long as the tab did not make you wonder if you had a meal on the earth or did it include taxes to go to the moon also? And they play some lovely retro tracks all evening, which is my kind of music!
These people have an excellent selection of the pizzas, the pastas, the paninis, some good starters and if i remember salads also! The regular fare you'd expect at a western joint! :) We ordered some Bruchettas and some Chicken Chilli for starters... and these were good. For the main course, we had Panini sandwiches, and these were spicy and tangy just as much as you'd need them, though they could work on some more exotic veggie stuff!
My dessert is the best part of a meal I eat out, and here, it was Excellent! The Mud pie was made out of soft and yum brownie bits and they just melt in your mouth..... To top it all up, there was a very friendly old man who was waiting on us, and he did a good job at it.
The only area they left us wanting was the waiting time for the food! Trust me, they'd serve you one starter and then you'd have to wait till it gets over till the second one would come around! Not fair i say! So, instruct them to bring your food all in one go maybe!
But the rest was all good. Most of what we ate was 75-85 bucks per portion, and even the more exotic stuff like the pasta and the works were 110-115 to the best! And no service charges, yippeeee! Burrrrrp!
