Foodlinks opens their second branch of INDIA BISTRO in jubilee hills.Glocal is now shifted to kondapur and india bistro takes its place. Located in the posh area of jubilee hills, it is a huge & spacious restaurant.Divided into ground and 1st floor the resaturant can easily accomodate around 150 pax at a time. The have full fledged bar on both the floor and ambience is modern & rustic at the same time. I loved their chairs ! so comfy and relaxing.
I have visited them thrice till now and taking my own time to pendown the review.I was here with couple of foodie friends for a monday dinner. Though when we reached there were hardly any guests in the resaturants, but by 9.30pm 80% of the restaurant was packed. Which was suprising for me on a monday dinner. We were greeted by the host and escorted to ourdining table.
The general manager came in no time and welcomed us all. We started our dinner with couple of mocktails followed by startes which included Paneer tikka multani, chciken stuffed kalimirch, firangi chicken, butter garlic prawns, mutton ghee roast and pav bhaji fondue. Out of all the dishes my top pics were butter garlic prwans ( what a beauty ! perfectly cooked with accurate flavours and served piping hot), Mutton ghee roast(one of the signature dishes of india bistro which you cant afford to miss it), Firangi
chicken ( this particular dish never dissapoints.Tender big chunks of chciken marinated indian spices and served with charcoal effect). An absolute amazing start of the dinner.
In the main course we wanted to order many things but we were already full. So had to stick with Railway mutton curry, velvet chicken and Daal makhani accompanied with indian bread basket. Though i am not a veggie guy but india bistro’s dal makhani is THE BEST in town right now. And then you cannot ignore delicacies like velvet chciken (Rich, thick, royal chicken curry made with indian spices and served with slices of egg). Have it to belive it.
We ended our amazing dinner with set of desserts which included ras malai,Phirni Kesar da and litchi ki tehri. i was always had concerns with india bistro’s desserts. They are extremely strong in their drinks, starters and maincourse. But somehow their desserts didnt appeal my pallet. But this time it was a different case. kesar phirni da was an average attempt to make something extraordinary, but rasmalai and litchi ki tehri were very well made. Litchi tehri was the star dessert for me which stole the show.
Over all an amzing & happy dinner. I would love to visit them back to try other items on the menu.
