Review
The ambience is classy, a must visit place for a date. I have been here quite a few times and have never been disappointed. I find pastas really good here and staff has always been nice. Although I like its Oberio Mall outlet more, but that's just due to the location. Music is better at Oberoi outlet.

Review
Sorry Mom, but this place serves the best Mac n' cheese I have ever had. My friends ordered 'four cheese fondue' which was amazing, no more words to describe it. Pair it with their hot chocolate and you would have 'food-gasms' :p . The place has a nice ambience, a very vintage cafe look. I prefer going there in the morning for breakfast as it would definitely lighten up your mood. Overall experience, AWESOME. It is definitely a place for photo-shoot addicts.

Review
The food is mind blowing, and the place is happening. It is a place worth spending on. You might face trouble getting a table on weekends because of the location and crowd. The staff is really enthusiastic and so are the people. Beer and roasted chicken is the best combination at this place. You can get one of the best burger and fries here. The music is pretty good. It is an overall amazing experience.

Review
Seating area is pretty good and sophisticated. Although I'd suggest you to go in the evening because the ambience of the place is damn good with the lights. We had a family party there (approx 9 people) and our bill was around 15000, and the quality and service time is pretty awesome.
The food is absolutely DELICIOUS!! It is my favorite restaurant. I have been there around 10-15 times, and the last time I visited the restaurant, I told him to serve me a good fish dish, and I still don't know the name of the dish. It was simply awesome.
But there's this one problem, it is really hard to reach, the mall is a little small and you have to climb the stairs most of the time as the elevator is out of service.

Review
This is a self service restaurant, basically you get to make your own meal.
Step 1:  Choose your base from steamed rice, ramen noodles, , flat wheat noodles etc.
Step 2:  Choose your veggies or meat- chicken, prawns etc.
Step 3:  Choose your sauces- green thai curry,  magic pepper, etc.
Step 4:  Choose the condiments- fried onion, red chilli etc.
That's it, you are done. Enjoy your own meal, all the flavors you like in one box.
The quantity is pretty good, and this place has outdoor seating, so forget about the fine dine experience. Although, it is really neat and hygienic. They serve beverages called bubble tea, and I tried mango basil which was simply amazing. The service is really fast as they make it in front of you according to your choices, basically it has a subway kind of concept.

Review
When you want to go to places like these, you definitely want to know about the music and rates of alcohol, which according to me are pretty decent (hostelers watch out for this one). The music is really good, the ambience is good.
What really would interest you is the rooftop section, preferably get the seat in the rooftop section, this place has 3 levels. Food is good, great crowd (young).
The worst part is waiting in lines to get inside at weekends, it is really crowded then. But the overall experience is awesome, so checkout this place at least once.

Review
The entrance is grand, the place and seating is fancy. I have tried buffet and ala carte, both. Buffet doesn't have those many options, but keeping in mind the cost of a buffet, we can't expect for more at such a fancy place.
The presentation is pleasing but casual as any other fine dine. The soups didn't please my taste buds so much, starters had a lot of variety, main course was very good. I definitely suggest you garlic cheese crostini.
The service is quite slow, but the taste of food makes you forget that.
