Restuarant Review : Azzuri Bay

A wonderful cool evening, dinner by the Adyar river. It was a wonderful view and ambiance was just perfect. I am talking about AZZURI BAY Restaurant in GandhiNagar.

Azzuri Bay had won Times Food Award for " Best Newcomer" in 2012.

I will always remember Azzuri Bay for one special reason. The Pepsi Cola that they served us took me back to my school days, when I used to buy this a lot and eat, especially the grape one. Good old days.

Without further ado, on to the dinner that was served for us.

Sanfransico Ice tea and Thai Ice tea. They tasted different, but were nice. I personally liked Sanfransico Ice Tea. 

Attractively presented Virgin Pinacolada.

Mix Veg kebabs with Sugarcane sticks. This was done to the correct consistency.

Paneer 65 was fairly good as the Paneer was a bit hard

Pita Bread and Hummus was delicious

Vegetable Starters

Cheese rolls , was yummy with the salsa they gave us.

I was very eagerly waiting for momos.Though a little bland I liked it a lot.

I heard the non vegetarians saying that Jumbo prawns tasted out of the world

At Azzuri Bay one can customize your Pizza. We used sun dried Tomatoes, Olives , Jalapenos and Mozzarella Cheese. To start of it tasted a little bland and then with the herbs being added. it tasted good 

Vegetable Lasagna was OK. I would give it 3 on the scale of 5. 

Roasted Chicken Penne Alfredo looked very cheesy and smelled very nice. 

This is Chicken Milanese

T Bone Steak

On to the Desserts, all of them were sinfully tasty.
Thanks to Karunakaran for sharing me the dessert snaps

Apple Tart

Cheese Cake

Mississippi Mud Pie

Chocolate and Cointreau mousse

On the whole it was a wonderful experience having a lovely dinner in the roof top, with the chill breeze against your face. Best thing about Azzuri Bay are their Starters and Desserts. Main course is a little

Restaurant Review : Zaica Fine Dinning

It was a hot summer afternoon and we were at Zaica for lunch. When I entered my very first thoughts was that the place had a very poor lighting for dining, leave alone photography. I was looking forward for their menu as I have heard a lot about their speciality dal. This special dal is cooked for 24 hours and has loads of butter in it. Obviously it did taste very good,

We quenched our thirst with the Lemony Drink with a mint flavor to it. I did not feel there was anything more to talk about it 

Next came in the Non Veg Soup - Yakhni Shorba. This lacked flavor and taste.

Tomato Shorba - had the flavor and taste of a tomato soup. Though the spice level was a little low for me 

Beetroot Ki Tikki - this was the star dish of our lunch. Even core non vegetarians liked it and we were asking for more servings . It had the right blend of spices. The very first thought for me, was that it would be sweet. But it was perfectly made and tasted very good 

Next on our platter was Gul Gul ka Paneer. It looked like a bombay sandwich. Paneer was a little hard but the flavors in it had blended very well and tasted good with the mint chutney

Bhutiyan ki sheek was a Vegetable Sheek Kabab cut into small pieces

We were served three non veg starters Murg Malai Methi

Murg Til Tikka 

Fish Fry. 

These were the starters that was served at our table before we plunged into the main course buffet.

Choice for main course for Vegetarians and Non vegetarians was very limited..The taste was ok- ok for the non vegetarians while veg food was above average..

Paneer Methi Malai

Veg Makhanwala

Naulakhi Sabz

Veg Pulao

Chicken Tikka Masala

Mutton Rogan Josh

Chicken Dum Biryani

Desserts was only Gulab Jamun that was very hot and Vanilla ice cream along with Strawberry cakes

Zaica is located on Radhakrishnan Salai , next to Copper Chimney

My ratings for Zaica

Ambience : 6 /10
Service - 7/10
Food - 6/10
Price - 6/10

PS : The lighting in the restaurant was very poor for photography, hence the bad snaps. Kindly bear with it
