Went to ITC Grand Maratha Peshwa Pavillion with the intention of a quick lunch..... Reached the place at 12.12 pm.. So got a chance to select table of choice... since only 2 tables were occupied.....
Buffet starts at 12.30....sipped cold Qua water patiently to build up the hunger
actually I decided to have a look at the buffet menu... If I found it un-interesting, I would just go to Peshawari and have good food (believe me... u must at least once go to Peshwari and see how rich Indian cuisine is ! )
Buffet priced at 1150/- each
Soups :- Tom Yum:- Spicy , Sour clear soup , with tomatoes and chicken
Cream of carrot:- Pureed carrots blended with spices and cream .. Yummy!
Starters:- Gosht Pasanda:- Flattened mutton pieces marinated in kebab masala
fried on flat griddle served hot with laccha onions , green chutney and a lime wedge. Nice in taste but the mutton was very tough .. wish the meat was tender .. then it would be one marvelous dish ! but alas .. I hope they improve
coz ITC Grand Maratha is known for its Indian Meat dishes
Spread of cold cuts , salads veg , non veg, 4 types of breads ( for the firangis incase you choose not to have Indian breads aka Rotis)
Rotis are served hot with ur main course at ur table
. So enjoy ur meal with hot rotis! The good ol Indian way
They had this tasty Mirch pakodi with green and sweet chutney .. too lip smacking
wish the pakodi was lil warm
They have this Mahi tikka: - which u order and they serve it on the table
I skipped coz the fish they serve is often Betki a sweet water fish .. which I dont prefer
They also had a dish called tandoori fish which was combination of pomfret and betki ..fish fillets served with grilled veggies in tandoori masala . it all depended on ur luck.. which fish u get
. Coz they all look alike
.. I tasted a small piece of fish .. grilled fish fillet with hint of mustard.. good for winters!
Few continental dishes
in veg & non veg
feta cheese cannelloni in mango sauce.. quite nice
Fish in wine sauce, lamb chops in Gus gravy
good for the firangi pallete
Usual butter chicken and Gosht Kaliyan.. tender mutton in cashew paste
. Yummy to the core.. Tasted heavenly with soft rotis
very mughlai in taste..
Chicken Dum Biryani and Mutter Dum Pulao both yummy
I wish to mention here that thy had one corner where they kept small kullhads of cold creamy dahi! ( guys dont miss it if ur one dahi lover .. even if ur not one .. u will end up liking it)
Array of sweets , cakes Indian sweets and fresh fruits
.boy Im already tired..
Go for a relaxed lunch which I ended up doing.. dont rush coz u will enjoy every bit
I was in desperate need for some soda to digest this all.. so a diet coke with crushed ice
. 1500/- for two
