"Ireland se aaya mere dost, dost ko salaam karo". A couple of months ago, our very own rocking Irish House (the largest one yet) set up in Andheri. More than a year ago, the first of these Irish triplets was born in Phoenix Mills, followed by Kala Ghoda. Ive eaten and "happy houred" at all, also given a thumbs up verdict as we did in our latest Andheri checkout.

Decor

Everything in this predictably themed, wooden-decored space is larger than life; from the expansive, high-ceilinged hall to the TV screens. Brick walls with trademark Irish house posters (take time to read them Beer Ladder, the Whisky Wall, Beer Kegsand the Post Box, Community tables…you name it.

Food + Drink

Large (that word again) portions of deep fried fare (be it the blistering chilli poppers oozing cheese, or the fleshy mushrooms crunchy with pine nuts) is tasty. I try the Chicken tacos, Beer Can Chicken, cordon bleu, and Grande nachos, pail of Popcorn et al. Chicken tenders are better in Kala Ghoda but otherwise all the rest of the fare satisfies. Well-stocked bar, with 42 types of beer from across the globe (draught beer is served in Kegs & Towers) Richard recommends the Erdinger wheat beer and Stella Artois. Try the innovative cocktails (Irish Trash Can, Irish Car Bomb)

Minus Points

The oven was not working the night we were there so Richard couldn't get his Steak 'n Kidney Pie. Too many deep fried, overdone starters. The large wedge of oversweet Irish Chocolate Torte and the Kahlua Mousse were avoidable.

My Point

Packed, bustling and vibrant…I've checked out all three Irish Houses at different times of day and night. Each time, I found that when the high-ceilinged space is sufficiently crowded, it has a lived-in, age-softened feel. And when most of the generously portioned dishes appealingly complement the atmosphere, it hits the sweet spot. No gourmet flashes, it's mostly a mix of pub stalwarts comfort foods at comforting prices. Happy hours (5 to 8pm) add to the happiness. Want a cheery, beery, noisy time? (Age no bar) this way please !
