An ‘unlimited grill’ experience
The concept is unique, every table in this outlet has a live grill where one can cook their own food. It’s Barbeque Nation and the unlimited ‘eat till you are satisfied’ concept is sure to thrill the diner when most eateries are curtailing portion sizes.
The décor is peppy and lively, the rich wood finish pleasant to the senses. The individual tables boast of a live grill with the flag that plays an important role in the process. The accompaniments used in the cooking and tasting neatly arranged by the side of the grill. At the further end is the buffet, a spread that covers one end of the restaurant.
It’s a repertoire from the culinary heart of different nations…the miniature skewers laden with partially cooked and marinated preparations. The waiter places the skewers on those miniature grills…the diner takes pleasure in finishing the product. Even the cutlery is designed to go with the concept…the two pronged fork to help removing the preparations off the skewer. There are five varieties of preparations in each the vegetarian and non vegetarian categories. Favorites in the vegetarian like the Cajun spiced potatoes and the Paneer Pochida. The non vegetarians will love the chilli garlic prawns and honey mustard chicken. There is a good balance in the marination and the ingredients too. And the waiter will keep on replenishing those grills till you are ready to stop,just lowe that flag, he gets the message. Believe you me, the buffet spread then entices. Chicken dum birani, Crab in chilly oyster sauce, chicken, mutton, fish, five more non vegetarian preparations, plus the vegetarian too…nine chafing dishes for that alone. And as for the desserts, seven to splurge on. It’s a bonanza of preparations to tempt the palate.
Plus and Minus
With all this unlimited availability one would be worried about the rate. There are interesting combos depending on the day of the week and the choice…vegetarian or non vegetarian. And then there are separate rates for lunch and for dinner too. The rates vary from Rs 562 to Rs 890/- all inclusive. And should you decide to be that early bird from 7 pm to 7.30 pm on a Wednesday to Sunday, there are special rates in the offing. It’s just a week since its opening and is sure to do booming business especially with its unlimited options. The service is brisk, the food tasty, the concept unique. Barbeque Nation is sure to capture the hearts and palates of the local diner.
