The Victorian-looking art on the walls, leather furniture and the stained glass panels around the bar lend a typical ambience of an English pub to Firangi Paani. Try Cuban Libre, (dark rum and cola combo, spiked with fresh lemon juice) or Chocotini, a chocolate-laced martini or you could opt for the more regular Long Island iced tea or even the Singapore Sling. Good mocktail options are Banana Berry, Strawberry Surprise and Summer Cyclist. Most cocktails and mocktails are priced at Rs. 400, exclusive of taxes. Non-vegetarian starters like Dijon Fish Cigars, New Market Kathi Rolls, Tibetan Chicken Momos, Spicy Moroccan Eggs, make for great company with your drinks. For vegetarians, the Premium Basket of fries (potato wedges, fries, rosti, jalapeno poppers) is a great conversation cruncher, and so is the Vegetarian Kebabs Platter. The vegetarian platters are very economically priced at Rs. 120, while the non-veg platters are about Rs. 250 onwards. Everyone might not agree with the loud music (retro, pop or hip hop) blaring in the evenings, coupled with the cigarette-smoke filled ambience, but this place is almost always packed, sometimes even in the afternoons. We suspect its success might be owed to the good pricing as well as the friendly number of Happy Hours through the week. The large dance floor presided by a DJ add to the informal ambience. While from Mondays to Thursdays, its Happy Hours between 4pm to 7pm, on Fridays and Saturdays, it lasts from noon to 7pm, while on Sundays it lasts from noon to midnight. Ladies nights are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There's a redeemable cover charge of Rs. 1000 per couple on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
