Mast Kalandar

Punjabi Thali – a disappointment !

The Thali had 2 Amritsari Kulchas, Chole, Dal Mahkni, Paneer subzi whatever,gulab jamun, vegetable salad, raita and Lassi included.
The Kulchas were very bland and almost just boiled potatos..no trace of any masala
Chole was ok, rest were ordinary..i mean missing the hotel kinda flavor..a basic paneer butter masala would have been good anywhere…
Didnt like Raddish in a Vegetable salad especially when it is cut in pieces where you cannot avoid it if you dont like it..thats my choice
Raita was good with some chat masala and grated cucumber I think..
Lassi was sweeeeet and Gulab Jamun was Sweeeeeeeeeter ! I could trace my esophagus all the way to my stomach when I swallowed it
And INR202 (189+taxes) was not very cheap. So I thought it was a very average experience.
btw – I didnt finish my plate..I left a half kulcha because I didnt like it..I can assure you I am a good eater 2 Kulchas would disappear in a jiffy from my plate and I love North-Indian too.

Older reviews?

This review is for their Velachery restaurant.
Since I live very close to this place, I dropped in for a casual lunch. I ordered one of their combos and a juice with it. It took a while to get the food and the restaurant was not crowded either. After i got my food, it was just ok.
My first impression was that the same paratha and a gravy would have tasted much better elsewhere. I felt the food was a little bland, i.e it failed to give a feeling of eating in a hotel. So as many say, probably it is more like home food and good for people who eat out regularly on long-term basis.
I wouldnt recommend it in particular.
