This one rates among the better Pop Tate's in the range. Neatly tucked in between Powai and the Godrej compound, it attracts a lot of crowd. I have been visiting this outlet for quite some time but now is when I think I can do justice with an elaborate review.
We seldom order starters but the chicken chilly, paneer chilly, chicken afrikano are among the natural choices we would make. However, there is this one time we ordered the Grilled Fish Spicy Pesto and it turned out to be a miracle. So much that we ended up ordering another round of the same dish.
When I think of sizzlers, Pop Tate's is the first name I think of. Not only because they serve damn good sizzlers but also b'coz they used to be ridiculously cheap in pricing. Things have changed and so have the rates. The sizzlers are now priced comparable to what you would see at other places. Nonetheless, that does not deter me from ordering a chicken shaslyk each time I go there. Otherwise known for trying out different foods, this sizzler is something very close to my heart when it comes to Pop Tate's. It is like they can never go wrong with it. I have tried the Roast chicken (with BBQ sauce, rated 3/5) and Grilled chicken (with Pepper Garlic sauce, rated 3/5) one two occasions but nothing beats the chicken shaslyk (rated 4.5/5 if overcooked or 5/5 most of the times). Among the veg varieties the paneer shaslyk is an average choice but the paneer steak comes across as a better choice with the smooth mushroom sauce to top it.
It does not happen that I do not order a sizzler when I am here but a friend of mine loves the chicken lasagne and I will have a generous helping of this neat piece of minced meat with sheet pasta.
They do not have a variety of desserts to choose from but whatever they serve, is impeccable. I like the chocolate mousse and the sizzling brownie that they serve.
Getting a seat on Fridays and weekends is tricky. So you better be there well in time. Other than that no complaints on that front. The staff is helpful and will like to interact with you if you are willing. The ambience is that of a place where you would like to go with friends for a drink and have a good time. The decor is not even close to what many of the (sophisticated) pubs in Mumbai have in place but that is not what you go to Pop Tate's for. Get down to business and start ordering the delicious food out here with a pint of beer.
