Pathetic and unhygienic food
We visited this place as we love the Benitos in Gopalan Mall Old Madras road, this one is near my place. To start with it was a totally ruined day for us, To start with they did not have half of the dishes and even drinks in the menu, Post which we saw an insect fall into our plates, Once we changed or tables, The food arrived totally cold, my order came to me wrong twice. As soon as we started eating to our horror, one of our order was cooked with an insect and a cockroach was crawling on the table!!!!!! We left the plate immediately and decided never to come back, Anything can be tolerated but no compromise on the hygiene
Pathetic experience, Ununhygienic food
Not sure how to start with, They totally ruined my food experience, I chose this Benitos as it is near my house and I am a big fan of Benitos in Gopalan mall, To start with there was just one person running around to take order and we waited about 20 mins and called him to actually come and take the order only to find, half of the items in the menu were not there, as basic as Mushroom, In any case we selected something and got some starters first, while we were eating an insect landed in the plate, When we looked up we saw the entire place is full of cobwebs, We changed the table and got our order which was totally cold, we demanded to heat the order, BTW I got wrong order twice, Finally when we were about to eat one of us found an insect cooked with our dish and a cockroach crawling on the table, We decided to leave the place instantly and never come back, Any thing can be tolerated but no compromise on hygiene..
A True Continental Experience
We went to this branch of Benitos for my birthday this year....Love the decor of this place...Very cosy and rustic bistro looking....It has comfy bean bags too other than the regular chair tables.....We started off with mock-tails strawberry crush and double mellow and some starters....Chilli cheese fries and cheese stuffed mushrooms....Then got the cream of mushroom soup.....Loved them....It was so yummy, one of the best starters and soups I have had in a while...It was raining that day and the warm soup and crunchy starters were a blessing in disguise.....We were so engrossed in the conversation and food we forgot to order the main course...And the staff which is so friendly helped us place our orders keeping in mind our interest.....We finally decided to order our main course on sizzlers.....My hubby ordered Caribbean chicken sizzlers and I being a vegetarian ordered my cottage cheese and hawaiin sizzler and it was humongous in quantity and it was a sure let down on taste....Was very bland and tasteless....And we lost our appetite for a dessert and asked for our BILL without even finishing the sizzlers....
Over all the experience in BENITOS was good...Hope atleast the next time we visit we get good sizzlers seeing we are a huge fan of sizzlers and they are not priced low too...
