Diner’s Pavilion had received rave reviews from a lot of foodies and when a foodie group(HOMP hyd) launched an event there. It was a no brainer that I had to attend it.
Location: 4th Floor of the building which houses Creamstone, this is an easy find in the Gachibowli area and visible from the main road.
Ambiance: As soon as you enter any restaurant the first thing that strikes you is the ambiance and they scoring the maximum in this department as it is elegantly designed with nice interiors. 2 PDR’s with TV’s for private gatherings/meetings/Corporate events. The main area has a big TV for public viewing , great for matches. Electric fire place is a nice touch, gives the feel of US homes where the TV’s are above the fire place so that they can be warm and watch TV as well.
Metallic rings & innovative light fixtures and chandeliers, royal chair designs and all screamed hardwork and money spent to give this place a regal look
Food: We had a fixed menu setup for the event where we were served Mocktails first: Black Avalanche, Peach and Apricot Delight. Both the drinks didn’t evoke a wow response, the black avalanche had its syrup in excess which made it quite strong, subsequent feedback it was reduced
Starters(Veg): Cha Gio Chay (Vietnamese Veggie Crunchy Rolls),Punjabi Subz ki Tikki with Date and Fig Chutney. Cha Gio Chay was excellent and I must have eaten at least 10-12 pieces & Punjabi Subz ki Tikki was a little dry than I had expected
Starters(Non-Veg):Togarashi Mahi- Mahi – A dry fish dish which was served hot and was tasty , Chilly Plum Chicken Wings with Sesame was good, Hariyali Murgh Tikka with Hari Chutney was the highlight of the afternoon where the chicken was tender and spicy, Rosemary Mutton Sheek with Garlic Cream sauce also was good as the minced mutton was soft and not chewy at all
Main Course (Veg): Phool Makhana aur Paneer kalimirch, Thai Massaman Mushroom & Tofu, Spinach & Cottage Cheese Enchilada – Veg dishes turned out to be better than I had hoped for
Main Course (Non-Veg): Lahori Karahi Murgh enriched with Creamy Yoghurt, Thai Green Chicken Curry, Greek Style Egg Plant, Zuccini & Lamb Lasagna with Breads, Naan’s Steam Rice & Basil scented fried rice. Lamb lasagna would have been better out of the entire lot , thick slices of eggplant kind off ruined the taste
Dessert: Qubani Cheese Cake, Flourless Chocolate Cake – Smaller portion were served which was a great idea to ensure no wastage, both the items, were nice
Good food, Great Ambiance & Excellent foodies in one go.
