Yes,everything about this place is inviting.Right from the food,the decor,the classy music except for the service.There has to be a spoiler almost everywhere,and yep,the spoiler here is the extremely callous and laid back service,oh should I even call it service?
The red colored walls,guitars etched on the walls,posters of various band members and bands hanging on the walls.It has elegantly laid cane furniture.The French horn steals the show.It has one big projector and few other LCD Tv's for the young lads to enjoy their sport match whilst sipping on some beer! The food is brilliant! I have almost tried everything on the menu. They have an elaborate menu which serves Chinese,Indian,Mexican and Italian fare!
What you MUST eat here:
- Blasted Chicken | Pieces of succulent chicken shallow friend in red sauce sautéed with bell pepper and onions.Sheer delight.mmmm =)
-Chicken Chilly | The chicken chilly is very crisp,not more than what it needs to be.Perfect I should say,and obviously prepared with capsicum and spring onions.
-Singh is King Pizza(haha!you read it right)| It has the tangy(not very), slight flavor on the topping topped with oodles of cheese.Mama Mia.
-Chicken Biriyani | It comes as a huge rice cake embedded with soft chicken pieces and an exotic flavor to it. Oh my,one of the best Biriyanis I have tasted till date.
-Brownie with Ice cream | Course I can't say it's a signature dish,but yes a surely a nice way to end your meal.
Timbuctoo is mainly a place where people love to hang around for hours,sipping beer,cocktails etc with their favorite munchies to go along side. The music is way too loud and the lights are way too dim,but many people love it this way.In all it's a brilliant way to spend your evening with your friends.
Is it VFM? Surely it is.If you're in a group,you're most likely to spend much lesser compared to being in a two's or three's and ordering quite a bit.
PS:The waiters are lousy,they get you something that you haven't ordered for and don't get you something you have actually ordered for! You have to budge them several times to get your basics like glasses,then the glasses which have to be filled with water,the paper napkins,the forks,the spoons,the chilli flakes,the oregano and what not! The food is thankfully brought in on time:P.Everything else will make up for the complacent attitude of the waiters.
PPS: The minus one star for the service,otherwise,it's surely a five pointer.
and yes,like I've said before,I love it,and surely you will.=)
