If you can't come to McDonald's, McDonald's will come to you! Their site www.mcdonaldsindia.com connects all 26 branches to you with the click of a mouse. Click on "McDelivery" online or call 66000666, and place those orders for adaptation at its best: McVeggie, McChicken, Chicken Maharaja Mac or Filet 'o' Fish. Relish the chutney-laced McAloo Tikki and Chicken McGrill. Add delicious chicken nuggets on as sides, or their undeniably popular French Fries (I'm not a fan). Spicy Chicken/Paneer Burger and Spicy Chicken/Paneer Wrap, McFlurry Oreo and McFlurry Chococrunch are the hot sellers here. VFM McSwirls, Flavour Bursts and McShakes will help you beat the heat! Soft Serve, Hot Fudge and Walnut Brownie too. Although I don't particularly like assembly-line burgers or fast food, full marks to McDonald's for their quick service, hygiene and keeping children entertained with the colourful ambience, Happy Meal Toys and good ol' Ronald. Check out the "kids zone" online if you want Ronald to host your child's next bash.
P.S. Check out the VFM "Good Morning Breakfast" served at select locations between 7am and 11am which includes coffee, pancakes, and breakfast patty bun. Pizza McPuffs (Rs.20) available too. Extra Value Meals begin at Rs.89 onwards and Happy Meals begin at Rs. 80 onwards.

I am rejoicing. Saffron returns to its original glory. I had reviewed it when it had just opened 11 years ago, (helmed by Chef Surjan Jolly). I am happy to report that on an unannounced recheck round, I found it better than ever. Gone was the confused flabby menu of Hyderabadi, Malabari, Awadhi and more. In its place is a leaner, focused and delightful menu with only true-blue Awadhi dishes (with an exception that proves the rule). The young Shahnawaz Querishi (from the same gourmet Lucknavi family that reigns supreme in the ITC kitchens, Sun-n-Sand and standalone Kakori Houses too) has been creating magic past few months here. He not only brings his training in the Lucknavi kitchens (Arabiya and Tunde Kebab) but also khada and khushboo masalas like khus ki jad, pipri, kachri, pather ke phool to Mumbai. He handpounds them and teases big effects from the softest Galouti and Kakori Kebabs, even the plump Murgh Nawabi is perfectly soft and tender. He uses NZ meat for the rich Burrah Chaanp and he meticulously pairs the meats with the perfect roti. I use the yeasty yummy Khamiri Roti to mop up the gelatinous Gosht Paya ki Nihari, the many layered Varqi Paratha with Koh e Avadh. The moist, subtle and flavoursome Dum Biryani is gently perfumed with Meetha Ittar from Aminabad. Thanks to the Executive Chef Himanshu Taneja, the exception of Peepay Chholey and Aloo stuffed Amritsari Kulcha delights. Dal e Khaas is just that. My only crib is that the vegetables are too cashew rich, be it Subz Peshawari or Bharwan Aloo. But that Shahi Tukda with its whisper of crunch and Rabadi delights. All this in the contemporary Indian off-the-lobby restaurant of the JW Marriott, with its interactive kitchen. Worth a visit.

Note: The Set Menu allows you to savour all of the delicacies for a fixed rate — `1,800 for vegetarians, `2,100 for non-vegetarians and `2,400 for seafood.
