I don't remember what I had, but I liked it (cost Rs. 99) and they accept Sodexo as well.

Do they have a live kabab counter? Also, has someone been to both BBQ nation outlets? which one is recommended more?



wow, which office is this? I need to send you my CV, I am starving here
There are 3 in Pune now, one is at R Deccan the mall opposite deccan bus stop.
Their rates have been increased to 755 per head for dinner. I found it a bit too steep.
Was at deccan branch on friday night, and the food was good

@selfdrive: I have tried all three BBQ outlets in Pune, and I found the Sayaji one the best, specifically in terms of the ambience. Food is pretty much the same everywhere.

"Gavran" located adjacent to Forbes Marshall near Kasarwadi. Authentic and delicious non-veg but only for those who eat spicy (very very) food. This place is not a family place, its a drinking hole. The place has "khatiya" like dhaba. Ambience is not good but once u taste the food, you forget everything.

Too expensive. And some of my friends had an encounter with a roach in their V'nagar branch.

Thanks bigwheelz! I have been looking for such a place in Pune for a long time. For the food and the 'ambience'. There used to be one we haunted in late 90s called Raanjaai at Wakad/ HJW chowk.
There was also one in Bangalore on Airport road near Domlur called Mookambika (Mooks, if anyone knows the place?!)

And if one wants to take family out for similar food taste, there's "Aba cha Dhaba". In Chapekar Chowk, Chinchwad. Again nothing much for Veggies. The jowari bhakri is delicious.

Tried a new restaurant "Salt" @balewadi phata today.
Good decor, great cuisine.
Had Korean burnt garlic rice and stuffed fish for main course n afghani tandoor for starter.
We dined at family lounge, there are some kiddies games n toys in a corner, my daughter enjoyed

Food, both taste n presentation 5/5
Cuisine coverage 5/5 (it's a pan Asian restaurant, but sans south Indian cuisine)
Service 2.5/5 ( a bit slow )
Ambience 3/5

After a long time had good Korean rice.

Almost everyone i asked and even here on this thread, people agree that great punjab at KP and Sigree ( I don't know where) are the best for Punjabi food.

So guys suggest me a place to go for punjabi food in Pune, the next time i am here.
Mother's Kitchen in Vishal Nagar near Aundh is a good place for authentic Punjabi food mixed with mother's Love I do mean it. The Uncle and Aunty there are such nice warm people that it feels a very personal exp to be around.

I love their food. Do try this. I frequent this place.

There's a dhaba by the name - Bhajansingh ka dhaba - near toll booth on the old Mumbai-Pune highway, soon after the diversion for Expressway towards Mumbai. Had gone there with a few colleagues last Friday. Just one word: A-V-O-I-D.

Sour Lassi (we ordered Sweet)
Some weird looking koftas and very average taste (ordered for Veg. Maharaja)
Chicken was good (as told by my colleagues, as if there's any difference between good and bad chicken)
Slow service
Average-to-poor ambience

Better to drive a bit more (15-20 kilometers and pay toll) and have lunch at Sunny.

I was reading the Hyderabad Thread on Eating Joints, there are numerous posts on Haleem a delicacy quite popular, I never ever in life had tasted one.

On my way home, in the Rosary School Camp lane, the one which has Eddie's Kitchen and Gita Society, I happened to see a banner, "Haleem Rs. 50/- per plate, only parcel", I thought of taking a plate home to try it out, to be very frank I was disappointed, it looked like a thick liquid upma, tasted bland. The one in the Hyderabad thread, seems to be garnished with onions, pudina leaves and dry fruits, this one had nothing of that sort, maybe something wrong with the place from where I had got it from.

Any suggestions for places serving good Kolhapuri food in Pune? How's "Purepur Kolhapur"? I think the HOMP guys had visited this place if I am not mistaken.

Purepur Kolhapur is pretty good IMO. But mind you that it serves only thali kind of food and a fixed menu. There is not much of an ala-carte. With most orders, the Tambda Russa (Red curry) and Padhara Russa (White Curry) are served unlimited.

I would recommend the gavran Chicken Thali or the Mutton Thali. These are usually the best at this place.

Had been to Delhi Kitchen at Deep Bunglow Chowk (Model Colony) yesterday.

Awesome food.
Average service.
Reasonable prices.
Poor ambience.

Good place for bachelors and students.

MH-09 on Baner Road near PanCard club is pretty decent in this aspect. Only negative is seating place is minuscule.

Avoid Le Royale Hinjewadi like plague. We had a team lunch there last week and what followed was bad stomach and loose motions for many of us.
