On a nice weekend evening, I yearned for a nice spicy Indian non-vegetarian food, and what would be spicier and hotter than Kolhapuri food. So I headed there with my family. This place looks like a run of the mill kinda place, but good reviews on Zomato made be expect higher from food.
Ambiance - Very basic and minimal ambiance. Regular tables, those steel chairs of old days and the walls painted blue and yellow.
Food - Well, we ordered Keema Pav and Gala Chicken Thali
Mutton Keema Pav - This was very tasty - Hot, Spicy with loads of red chilli. I was expecting the Paav to be toasted or atleast warmed with butter. However, it was cold - directly out of the packet from the fridge.
Gala Chicken Thali - This Thali included Chicken curry, Solkadi, Egg Curry, Tambda Rassa, Pandhra rassa along with 3 Chapatis and a portion of rice. Honestly speaking, none of the items in the thali were tasty.
The quantity of Thali is sufficient for one person. Chicken curry was bland, the chicken was not marinated properly - so it was feeka (no salt) and it looked as if the chef has downloaded a bucket of red chilli in all the sabjis in the name of Kolhapuri and no other masala.
The other curries such as Solkadi or Rassa were equally not good. The portion of rice was really small, while in SouthIndia, we expect a good rice portion along with a thali.
Price - Keema Pav+Gala Chicken Thali and extra pav costed us around Rs500/-
Location - Whitefield - Above Egg Factory.
Address - 2nd Floor, Santosh Tower, 3rd Road, Near SBI RACPC Branch, EPIP,Whitefield, Bangalore
Nonetheless, after a download of red-chilli, we headed out to another place nearby for an ice-cream.
