V Junction Global Eatery is the new kid on the food scene with multi cuisine buffet and ala carte options. This was started by Veer Vijay Singh and his two sons Vishwaveer and Suryaveer Singh,Veer Vijay Singh was part of Taj group earlier and started the trance group of Hotels & Resorts and V Junction is one of their brands serving global cuisine, His son Suryaveer Singh was part of 4 seasons group of Hotels where he refined his culinary and customer service skills before heading this restaurant. It always pays to have the right set of people heading a restaurant who know what to deliver in terms of service and quality.
As part of the Desi Foodies group we had organised an event here for 40 people and the following review is the culmination of the event and subsequent visits before and after the event.
Located prominently in Banjara Hills opp. City Centre mall, it is quite an easy find with its usage of glass display on the exterior and a large V being displayed in the middle
Ambiance: Large seating options which can accommodate around 120 ppl with 2 PDR which has option of being made into a bigger seating area based on the seating requirements. Good for family parties and corporate gatherings. They also have a separate area with a glass enclosure which great for parties, watching those cricket matches on a big projector or just plain and simple letting your hair down and partying with the great music system with a DJ console that has been setup. Great thing is that the glass is sound proof and the people dining outside will not get disturbed
Service: One of the few places where you can see each and every person serve you with a smile on their face, we have had 40 people making each and every member of their staff run around and they did so with utmost ease and without a single frown on their face. Kudos!!!
Food: The name Global Eatery is quite apt as they serve a variety of cuisines under one roof viz. Indian, Eurasian and Oriental in the a la carte section. Most of these dishes are available in the buffet section as well.
Mocktails: I have tried their Green garden which had Mint, Apple Juice & Kiwi, Strawberry lemonade and both of them were nice.
We had a wide range of starters available for the event; few of the ones that I had tasted were amazing
Dimsums: We had 2 Veg and 2 Non Veg options provided, Crystal vegetable dumpling, Mushroom dumpling, Prawn Har gao, Chicken dumpling where the Prawn Har gao was the tastiest and warranted multiple repeats
Sushi’s: We had 2 Veg and 2 Non Veg options available Vegetarian tempura maki,Vegetarian Futo maki, Non veg- spicy crabstick maki, Non veg- salmon cheese roll out of which the Spicy crabstick maki stood out as a clear winner. For their Oriental cuisine they have a separate Chef who had previously worked in popular 5 star establishments across the globe and the main person behind delivering tasty sushi’s
The sushi’s were served with the usual Soy sauce, Wasabi and Gari (Pickled Ginger)
Marmalade Prawns – The sweet and spicy flavored tasty prawns were served piping hot and gobbled up pretty quickly, one of the recommended items in the starters section which you shouldn’t miss
Butter Chicken – This dish in the main course section deserves a special mention, special north style preparation which is tasty and delicious and goes amazingly well with Butter Naan. I kinda got greedy and ate more than I would have liked to. This dish is not available in the buffet and has to be ordered separately via the a-la-carte menu
Biryani – This was one dish that I had pointed out which needed improvement during my first visit , the management worked on it and ensured that they fix it before the event
There were 6 options in desserts other than the Ice creams and unfortunately we were not able to taste them as the foodies finished the delicious items in no time, I had tasted Cappuccino cream Brulee, Chocolate pudding, Almond chocolate cake in my previous visit 5 days back and they were amazing. They have procured a new oven and will be increasing the items in the buffet shortly
On multiple occasions that I have been to this place I have seen Surya look after each and every aspect of the business, from attending to the customers, to getting the dishes from the kitchen, getting things replaced, checking with the customers about their experience. With this hand on approach I am sure that this place will definitely do wonders
