My Fortune....cathedral road

We tried the Saturday night buffet over there..Since its five star we expected good ambiance and we were not disappointed..one thing I liked was the spacious seating.

In the moctails they had just one variety but it was  totally to go for..very yummy.

Then in the vegetarian starters he brought vada, pakora and fried vegetable and all of them were good.
In the main section they had very good bread section, then we tried paneer khurchan, ma ki daal, dahi vada , green mix veg and there to southern style vegetables too.....they had lot more variety ib non veg. Though the variety was not much but the food was good......

In the dessert there were many baked varieties 4 types of icecream, karachi halwa and bread pudding...whatever was there was very good and tasty but i missed indian desserts something like gulab jamun or jalebi.

Service was prompt and courteous..I liked it.

It cost us 899/ per person because we had taken groupon coupon , otherwise I think it is 1200/ per person.

Little Italy

We went to this place in Beasant nagar. Got the table immediately.
Ambiance is very nice and cosy and gives a very clean feeling with starched table cloths and all.
Service is also quick, we ordered Long Island in Mocktails and veg,cream soup and both were totally to go for..very nice
Then we took special tacos and pizza..both were very good, yummy,My husband was so happy to find this place.
Since both the dishes had paneer, we were totally stuffed and didnt have any place for dessert, but they had nice variety including Tiramisu.
Now i would like to point out 2-3 small things, like in service he always brought the dish first then plates then cutlery whereas it should be the other way round.
Both the dishes were very tasty but for tacos, I cant say that they were authentic Mexican..for that we need guacamole and sour cream, but I know that with the prices of Avocado so high in India, its difficult to manage that in  a reasonable price.
All in all a very good experience..its pure veg..an added attraction for me

On an average it will cost around 1500/ for two, or may be a little less..

DELHI HIGHWAY

I was looking for a north Indian vegetarian restaurant, so this week we tried this one. 
Compared to other restaurants in this category I found the ambiance quite good..with decor seating and space.Luckily we got the table immediately, otherwise there was waiting later on.

I was happy to see mocktails on the menu and so we ordered lassi and Pommegranate moctail, lassi was nothing special but moctail was good and so were the starters..dahi ke kabab..they we yummy.

In the main course we tried delhi highway special daal and kadhai paneer..Daal was awesome..best I have tasted in Chennai, kadhai Paneer was also fine, in the breads, missi roti wasnt worth it but naan and kulcha were good.

There was enough variety in desserts also, but we were full, so didnt try anything.

All this came at a price of 1700/..so if we had ordered desserts also, .complete meal for two wouldnt be less than 2000/..may be a little more

They have a thali on weekdays for 499/.nett..why cant they have somthing like that on weekends too..may be increase the price, or decrease the variety or make it a limited thali..would be more enjoyable.

One thing which brings this restaurant a little lower is the service..people are neither courteous, nor smiling..I seriously like the place where people are friendly..specially in a hospitality bussiness. Here they care a damn..

So I would say food is good, ambiance is  also good, service is bad,and prices..you may judge your self..
