Weak global cues create off-colour hues. But what if one found a place with strong global cues? A warm wood-panelled restaurant called The Courtyard, run by two young entrepreneurs Mohit Gupta and Mayur Dhond fresh out of the catering college, is one such place. Their global cues are strong where food is concerned - a crispy Papad Roll in a shot glass, colourful sauces, mint chutney, tomato sauce and honey chilli dip. For starters try the Wok tossed Basa Fish, slightly crispy on the outside and soft inside with cherry tomatoes and spring onions. It’s a Continental preparation cooked in a wok. Or start closer home - Goan! The Fish Tikka with Raechade and the Cafreal Chicken Tikkas, succulent and well marinated, are melting moments of sheer bliss. Or perhaps the Candy Pops? Not a fantasy; just Sabudana Vada on sugarcane sticks. They look like lollipops and are dipped in the chilli honey dip. Remember to chew on the sugarcane for that sweet taste - an innovative idea. The food is economical and caters to all palates. The Fried Squids on a bed of Creamy Spinach - a morsel of the squid with that cheesy, creamy spinach will have you grinning, like the proverbial Cheshire cat. Infuse your spirit with the Brandy-Infused Prawns in Butter Garlic Sauce with a hint of chilli flakes: it adds spice to the spirit. It’s not all cool and Continental: try the spicy Sri Lankan Chicken Curry with Steamed Rice. Or move around the way the Balinese dancers do after eating the Vegetable Balinese Curry. The fondue is best had with marshmallows and fruit. Their pièce de résistance is a Bavarian blob, which is rich, creamy German chocolate cake with rum and oozing with chocolate. A global experience like this ensures the right feelings.

The interesting serving of food and the tempting color of side dishes are some things that one can not overlook in this restaurant. I must say that the owners are highly creative with their food preparation and serving. The Prawns that are Brandy infused and Sri Lankan Chicken Curry are rare dishes available here and they are irresistible. It’s a nice different culinary experience and I totally love indulging in such experimental methods.

Though I didn't like the ambiance of the Courtyard, but I like the food. Wok tossed Basa Fish is one of my favorite dishes. The fish is crispy and soft inside, it is just too good to have. Sabudana Vada on sugarcane sticks is another dish that I can never get bore of eating. More than the eating, you will find its presentation amazing. I like visiting the Courtyard with friends.
