Saturday night at hidden place was good fun. Even though the place was packed we enjoyed ourselves and had a beer drinking marathon. We all were buzzed A LOT ..Thankfully we had a Designated Drunk Driver....:P
This place is so dingy. It's worse than Mumbai's quarter bars. The ambience is terrible. And the service is worse. Untrained staff who have no idea of what is available at the bar and don't understand simple instructions.
We went on Sunday afternoon after I saw a whole line of people waiting outside on Saturday night. They didnt have any breezers abd were serving only Estrella beers which had some 2 for Rs 399 deal going on. So we ordered one beer and told the waiter we are not sure if we want to take the deal abd will order another if we want. We then asked for the Four Seasons Chennin Blanc and were instead shown the Vallone bottle till another waiter stepped in with the correct bottle. We ordered a portion of chicken wings as well which were decent. But by the time we finished our drinks and the starter we just wanted to get out of there.
We were billed Rs 399 for two single beer and when we pointed it out we were asked to consume that other beer instead of rectifying the bill. We had to argue to get the bill corrected. And they add service charge to the bill. When we refused to pay the service charge we were shown the service tax doc that restaurants now flash in your face. We had to sit there and point out that the legal doc was only for service tax and there was no law that bound is to pay service charge for bad service. Only after that did they change the bill.
I'm sure there are more deserving places in pune where one can spend their money instead of this (quite literally) hole in the wall.
