Don't Carry Your Credit Card
If you do, you're going to walk out with a very bittersweet feeling - on one hand, excited to try all the various chocolates, beverages, crisps and snacks you've purchased - an in the other a footlong bill and crippling debt!
When I enter this place I feel like a child in a proverbial candy shop, and needless to say you want to try all the candy.
Best selection of gourmet foods, snacks and beverages I've seen anywhere in this city.
Excellent variety of Different Cuisines
Attached to the Dolce Vita store, the restaurant is quite spacious and offers a wide variety of options from different cuisines.
Ample options are available for vegetarians as well.
Hotel staff is very helpful and helps you make the decision of chossing the right dish from a wide variety of options
Goat Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms were very tasty, the cheese used in them was especially good, it just melted in your mouth.
Cottage Cheese with Burnt Garlic Rice is an excellent combination. Both the dishes compliment each other and is an good choice in the Chinese options.
Burrito is wholesome but the taste is a bit bland and the rice used inside was not upto my expectations.
A good place to visit if you want to try out various cuisines at one place.
Sweet Life could be sweeter :D
Well, i had been to DV a few days back. Day before yesterday to be precise. The place was nice & pleasant. Service was VERY GOOD, the best service i've seen in any cafe. Variety isn't much & the prices are high if you ask me. The drinks were good, food was nice. :)
I had originally visited it within a couple of days of their opening/launch and it had immediately gone into my 'Not to be visited' list, in spite of my colleagues vouching for the changes and my friends picking up stuff from there regularly.
And, it seemed that there was a SM conspiracy afoot, because I received an invite to check out their newly launched 'High Tea'. One of those few timing right, walk across invites and so decided to visit them.
Walked in and decided to take a look all around - there is a marked difference over the last couple of months, found the prices aligned mostly, with a few higher prices, but that is fine.
Then went up and introduced myself to Rohet - Chef aka Operations Head and Chandni who had actually invited me.
Discussed a lot of things, mostly food related whilst waiting for others to join, which they did quickly and we got down to business.
High Tea - This is really a tempting offer at 500/+taxes for 2 people and covers unlimited tea/coffee (and yes they are kind enough to serve you cold coffee/tea also if you ask); choice of veg/non-veg sandwiches with different breads that you can choose. Veg sandwiches that day were - mushroom, mix vegetable & cream with cucumber, whilst Non veg were two chicken options out of which garlic chicken was absolute yummy, and a corn option. Then there were of course the scones with cream & jam. The cinnamon and cherry jam was a nice touch and took me back to many an afternoon spent lazing in England over high tea. Tummy full by now, but there were some pastries left, which Rohet and the lovely Ruchi (photographer,blogger) pushed me into trying and ecstasy it was - Mocha cheese cake, absolutely superb, but with great control avoided the lemon tart and black forest promising to come back later and try it out.
Service - was good, maybe because this was by invite, but even otherwise look good with smiling faces on the retail floor also. Yes, they probably need to polish their cleaning skills and carry napkins like the British butlers:)
Price - some may find it a bit high, but for the space, ambiance and service found it pretty ok. Besides, their promotional offer for High tea and Lunch make it worthwhile.
I have serious plans of visiting soon to try out the entire range.
In Love with the Place
Excellent Place ! Excellent Food ! Excellent Service...
Gives me a feeling like i was dining abroad somewhere.. The cafe is part of supermarket store which keeps exotic foreign foodstuffs.
They have a Wine Shop & a nice little Bakery with different types of breads, cheese & desserts.
Coming to our dinner : we ordered a Mashed Potato, Veg. Burger & a Burrito.
The Mashed Potato was out of this world, havent had such good mashed potatoes anywhere in the city. Was perfect with the crushed pieces of garlic.
The Burger served with a huge portion of French Fries. Both were very good. Infact the Burger was very well made & they had some sort of pesto paste on one side of it !
The Burrito was decent, could be better, but definitely worth a try.
Had a Blackforest cake, pretty good !
Huge portions & good food ! Very cordial staff.. Lovely ambiance.. will definitely visit again to try something different next time around..
Decent exotic food
This one's attached to the Dolce Vita store in the newly opened section of Phoenix- had decent Mexican food. I happened to be there because it was Sunday evening and all other places were jam packed. but it was a good discovery, could have had a little more variety on the menu. they definitely need to advertise though- to get in people to know the place.
