They are a multi cuisine restaurant. The ambience was fairly casual, but the food was to die for !! excellent paneer tikka and khaosuey.The place is totally renovated with a 30 feet high sunroom ceiling and the the entire seating area is air-conditione.
The open kitchen has been hidden from the public view which is a big plus for me from hygienic point of view.The pizzas are very good as are the kakori kebabs.

Always something for everybody...

Punjabi ...check

Oriental ...check

Italian ...check

Bar.....

Outdoorish seating....

Offers....

Flamboyante has become the Defacto choice of confused souls in South Bombay.

Everything on the menu is from average to very good.

The highlights are the Pizza, Khauswey , Black Dal, Pan Fried noodles.

There are one to standout dishes in every type of cuisine which would have not meant much individually.....BUT WITH THIER POWERS COMBINED.....I GIVE YOU CAPTAIN FLAMBOYANTE.

Been there many times.

But this time it was the Lunch Buffet....unlimited variety Rs660 including taxes.

HMMMM VFM.

Classy... All the Way...!!!!

it has all the south Bombay charm...a lovely setting in a grand 30 feet high hall located at the iconic world trade center arcade,it makes you feel flamboyant the moment you enter...
the service is fairly good the crowd is mixed...
must try:
the chicken coriander soup is perfectly flavoured
the mezze platter is exquisite
the seven islands ice tea is huge and kicking (if you know what i mean)
the mud pie is to die for.

ps: they suggest trying their mixed pasta but it can easily be avoided.

Excellent

this place at WTC has an absolutely lovely ambience and boy, is it huge. However, yet on many weekends, you might have to end up waiting for a table. earlier frequented for Hookah, after the ban, people go there now to enjoy to just sit back and enjoy some cocktails often with a live band.

The drinks are good and served in unique glasses for e.g.: a nice pinacolada came in a funky coconut shell and a pineapple concoction in a half cut pineapple glass. Just adds to the charm of the place.

When it comes to food, the place is pretty good. You gotta try the Indian maincourse as opposed to the Italian. They also have special party packages for bigger groups.

Multi-cuisine restaurant

I've been coming here ever since the restaurant opened. The location is a bit of a turn off for many people. The beautiful large gulmohar tree after which the restaurant has been named is now no more :(
The restaurant serves multi-cuisine fare, which is often a point of concern for me. However, I keep going back for their steamed dimsums (the prawn and chive ones are incredible), which are some of the best I've ever had. The Burmese Khowsuey is wonderful and is presented beautifully with generous toppings served on the side. The Indian food can be patchy sometimes, but the kebabs are great. Their Margarita pizza is pretty good too. They have a VFM lunch buffet during the week, which is recommended. Summers can get hot, since most of the restaurant is alfresco, so you can choose the ac section on humid days.
The service has greatly improved over the years. A great spot for a large gathering of people with different tastes. A meal would two would be in the range of 1400-2400.

The Best Khao Suey

The annoying part of flamboyante is its location. It is located inside the world trade centre. It hardly has parking with weird entries and exits. The restrooms in the campus are a pain to visit. But it always makes me visit the place is because of its food. Flamboyante has this awesome pan asian cuisine. The Khao Suey is not a dish its a feast. Served in this large tray it comes with a lots of bowls in the tray. With all the ingredients. The curry comes in a live heating bowl and noodles at the centre of the tray. The make it yourself experience is awesome. The prices are on the higher side but you would expect that it being located in the trade centre in town.

Best Veg food

Well i had been to many restaurants which serves both veg & non veg food, but this place i tell you is so good with its veg cuisine that u shall feel like coming again & again & the best veg food especially their roomali roti & paneer tikka masala...
The ambience would find you all rich class people yet not so highly priced.

Best for people having anniversaries or special occasion.

Good but not "Flamboyant" enough!

I decided to try this restaurant with my husband last weekend. My take on Flamboyante – Just about Good!

Heres why:
If you call and make a reservation, be sure to follow it up on the day of your visit – I had called a day before to book a table and yet when we got there they hadn’t put down our booking and hence we had no table for about half an hour.
After going through the restaurants website and the pictures there I was really looking forward to the place, however I was a tad bit disappointed as the ambiance did not live up to the pictures on the site. The area wasn’t as big as it looked like and the air conditioned area wasn’t really separated as one would have thought. They chose to separate it from the non – air conditioned by transparent plastic curtains! Not pretty!

Coming to the food, not much to complain about. We ordered the Prawns with burnished Garlic and the Malay Fish for starters. Both were very good. In Main Course we decided to go Italian for the simple reason we had heard not so good reviews about their Indian Cuisine. Both of us ordered a pasta dish each, and while my Pasta in Arabiatta Sauce was fine, the Penne in Paprika and Cheese Sauce which my husband ordered was way way better – definitely worth it. The Pizzas too are delightful, however they are slightly overpriced. In desserts, don’t miss out on the mud pie. The waiters themselves recommend it which tells you that this is a favorite amongst alot of diners here.

Overall the service was good, food (Oriental and Italian) was very good, ambiance not really exquisite, pricing a little on the higher side considering the fact of its location.

For its name, Flamboyante doesn’t really do justice to it – it isn’t yet on the brink of Outstanding which we would have hoped it to be.

Loved the Place, Food and Service!

My experience at this place was amazing. Ambience was quite good with families and couples around. The food was amazing, out of the dishes we ordered the Hummus Platter, Kandahari Paneer Tikka and Lahori Paneer were great to eat. But the stand out thing was the Mississippi Mud Pie which I loved a lot. The service was prompt with Ankit the waiter explaining us about the dishes and suggesting us the best to eat. Will go back to this place very soon.

Deteriorating Quality

Been a regular at this restaurant for a few years now.

Visited after almost 6 months & sorry to say but the quality of the food is certainly deteriorated.

Ordered a couple of starters which were decent ! But the main course was poor.
Pasta's were bland & tasteless. The Pizza's , which at a time were one of the best I had eaten in the city, was certainly no where close to comparable.

I have been a big fan of the Chocolate Mud Pie & normally eat an entire one myself. But this time around I was struggling to finish it !! Not cos I was full, but cos it was that bad.. just didnt taste the same

And over & above, the place is pretty expensive !

nice weekend dinner spot

Even though our table of 5 was left unattended for ten minutes... the food and the service that followed after that made it all up. Food is really good there, and staff very friendly.

Average!

The ambiance at night, i think, is better than at lunch hours. When you closely look at the entrance then It might look some kinda shady place as it is not very grand. But the passage way leading to it is nicely decorated. Not to forget the shops with closed shutters really are not visible at night. We took the air conditioned section of the restaurant. Which lookd very nice. The lighting, tables, sitting arrangements were quite good! There was open sitting also which also looked good and had big screen ..
Food wise we ordered snacks .. among which I think pizza was the best. Rest we ordered paneer tikka and some tandori aloo which was not that great.
Main course was also not very very relishing except the veg dum biryani.. which is quite a talk! U will see all the tables would def. order one dum biryani for sure.
Over all I'll say it was and average experience. Could have got better rating if they had better service and tasty food.

Awesome food but ambience thumbs down

The food was amazing but the ambiance was so disappointing. No fine dining room available during lunch hours so i had to sit in the open. Not recommended for a date. And the prices were overcharged!

Overly Expensive in my opinion

The place is in a great location and also very well decorated ,

but the food is over priced as is the Bar.

Service is not that great either.

Had ordered for Creme Brulee and it was very dissappointing .

Sheesha too ( when it was served :P ) was very expensive .. and also not that great .

overall a great place let down by so-so Food and a bit slacky service.

Good food, avg service

Went to Flamboyante last night for dinner - was my sis birthday so we had taken a cake along but were told at the entrance outside cakes not allowed.

The ambience of the place is nice with a live band playing and a separate seating area if you prefer to sit in a quieter place.

We chose a table upstairs and was not too bad... the food was good... though it did take a little more time to arrive.... had ordered for dimsums and some tikkas for starters which were good followed by thai curry and a mughlai chicken dish which was also very nice...

The surprise was the bill which had us being charged for more number of items than we ordered... which when highlighted to the management was managed very effectively... with apologies and we were then even allowed to cut the cake we had got along and even had the live band singing happy birthday as well! :)

All in all its a nice place with good food and ambience but needs to shape up on service and avoid errors in billing.

Food takes backstage

Located in the southernmost part of Mumbai, Flam, as it is fashionably known, is a restaurant that looks and feels fun and vibrant, but leaves much desired.

I visited Flam with some colleagues last week. The atmosphere is good, and the tables largely spread out so one doesn't end up smelling the neighbour's food. The cuisine is varied and there is good choice on offer, if you figure out the complicated names. The beverage choice is ample, too. And all would've been good if it wasn't for the utterly sterile service. It appears that each table has one server allotted to it, and if your server disappears, there is a possibility that the others will avoid your table like the plague. The server who seemed to be allotted to my table was probably the worst one I've ever come across. When asked what Tom Yum soup was, he replied, "Well, it's soup with pieces of Tom Yum." And after not taking our order for a while exclaimed, "I was just doing time pass with you". Later, when we got our bill we noticed that we had been charged for items we had not ordered and not charged for items we had ordered. Even the attitude of the floating managers was lackadaisical.

Overall, Flam remains a decent place to go to for the food and the enjoyable live music. Just hope to God that the service is good and if you manage to find your way to the wash room, you find your way back too!

good food but...

We have been here so many times and each time we have got good food served but the service levels can vary from very good to very poor.

Even as per previous diners i have noticed the management addressing the wait staff very poorly in front of the diners - which does nothing for the image of the restaurant.

I feel that there may be sincerety by the management to run it professionally and provide diners with a splendid experience but a lot more effort would need to go into many things there.

Things to be improved - the ambience needs work, the toilets, the way the things are scattered across the place in the back...many many more.

I would have given this restaurant 2 stars but i have always found their food to be superb and one extra star is only for the food.

Impressive

Went here last night since it has been on our to-try list for ages and N was treating.
The courtyard seemed tempting but since there seemed to be a private party on and was very very hot, we opted for the inside section.
Since the offer on display (free pen with 100 Pipers) got the staff very flustered, N had Teacher's and I swigged my Cosmos. The cocktail was well made and I was impressed.
The kakori kebab seemed more Galouti and the portions were very very small. I was looking forward to the Wasabi prawns and the portions were good but they weren't as pungent as expected. The pizza (pepperoni) was a masterpiece. Satiated though we were, I ordered the Mississippi Mud Pie (while eying the next table's Michado) - it was simply divine.
Expensive (3000+ for 4 drinks and 2 starters and a pizza and a dessert) but one definitely doesn't feel shortchanged.

Lovely Setting, Good Food

Went to Flamboyante for dinner. The red wall at the entrance of the restaurant gives out a very warm and inviting vibe. Flamboyante's open air seating area is extremely charming and romantic. The well spaced table layout is certainly unobtrusive and relaxing.

I don’t consume alcohol, so cannot comment on the drinks. Now coming to the food. Had 'Hot Pepper Chicken Soup', to be frank was quite bad, the stock used had a 'weird' aftertaste which completely put me off. For starters ordered, 'BBQ Pork Spare Ribs', should have been tenderer, passable taste. For Chinese entrees; 'Kung Pao Chicken' was cooked to perfection with a great blend of meat and sauce, 'Chicken Fried Rice' was good. For Mughlai entrees; 'Nihari Gosht' was absolutely sensational its oozing bone marrow flavour just sky rocketed its appeal and 'Dum Mutton Biryani', its meat was beautifully treated but a hidden mint taste was not to my liking. Coming to desserts, 'Gooey Chocolate Fudge', simply fabulous, had the right sweetness balance plus was heated to the correct temperature before being served, bang on the money.

Flamboyante's service can get a little slow at times. Pricing is on the higher side, but surely worth the cash. Surely worth numerous visits, on the whole four stars from my end.

Pick safe from the menu

Came here for dinner last night (Saturday). After reading the reviews on burrp, we had decided to pick safe instead of trying out exotic dishes.

The menu is confusing...Indian, Chinese/Zen & Italian.. We tried a little of everything. Short & sweet summary below:

1). Wasabi Prawns - Superb! Would keep going back for this dish. The prawns are big in size and one plate sufficed 6 pax easily.

2). Seadfood Pizza - Outstanding! Thin crust and full of flavour, literally melts in the mouth. We ordered the large which again was more than sufficient for 6 pax. Great portions.

3). Steaks - Good Stuff! Easy to eat and share as they came cut up into pieces. (So convenient if you're a little tipsy on wine ;-)

4) Korean Chicken - Avoid! Sweetish, too fatty, very okay, nothing great at all. Relied on the waiter's advice for this one. Recommend picking yourself.

5).Kakori Kebabs- Absolutely Outstanding!!! MELTSssss in the mouth, lovely treat but definitely not filling since its too light. Would recommend it though if in a large group..for the taste.

A special mention to the ambience, this place is just what we needed as we were here for a family celebration.The lighting and music are top notch. Will definitely come back.

Damages: 6000 bucks for 4 starters, 6 maincourse dishes , 2 beers, 1 Greygoose vodka drink and a bottle of Sula wine.

Terrible stinky food

Would never have visited if I had read reviews here.

However was taken in by the hype.

Had Chinese. Food hardly authentic, but that is nothing new. Given bad table, very noisy place - not new in Mumbai either.

What really put me off was the stink from the food at the next table when we arrived. Try boiling stale cabbage, stale broccoli or cauliflower, combine with warmed stale liquid rice starch and you will know.

I ordered soup. Stock in the soup was stale rice starch (as is done in many lesser restaurants) and not real stock. I put it aside, hurried companions through their meal and we beat a hasty retreat because I was threatening to throw up. Need I say more?

Not worth the buck + Food = Strictly OK

Of late i have been very unfortunate while dining out at restaurants that fall into a category of over rated + over hyped + overly priced. I am ok abiding with these aspects as long as the place provides you equivalent ambiance and food.

In continuation with my dismal dine out at Ruby Tuesday (I have ran out of good dining options in South Mumbai), I visited Flamboyante with a bunch of friends. We sat in the outdoor section which was draped in a wedding 'mandap' sorta decor. The place in itself has a very dull appeal to it. However, i would give brownie points for its music and the ample space between tables to make it private and less noisy.

Coming to the food - I have started getting wary about restaurants who under one roof - sell italian + chinese + mughalai..anyways - we orderd some peach iced teas, manchow soup and a couple of appetizers - cheese corn balls and veg crisys. While the iced teas were just ok, the manchow was very good. What disappointed me was the appetizers. The former was very bland the latter was drenched in oil sitting on the plate. Yuck! The pizzas we ordered werent that great either.

The damage for 4 with a couple of 9" pizzas and couple of appetizers + soup + with mocktails was 2800! That was a complete shocker as this place doesnt deserve this kinda pricing for the food that isnt that great and the ambiance that is strictly ok. Def not returning back to this place as the prices/ambiance are just not worth the buck.

Pricey but worth every bit of it

Did our annual old school boys reunion, just four of us catching up with the friend from LA. Wanted good food, great ambience and terrific service. Got all of it. Special mention for the prawns, and off course the kashmiri chicken tikka....two portions each were not enough. We stuck to the heavy starters and drinks section paid a bill of 5.5K and had a real blast.

Share:

rejuvenated

was just there for dinner. the decor has changed, the giant tent is gone, instead they have individual covers and lights on the tree and plants. Great setting.

We started with the soup Beijing Spicy which was well, not spicy at all. Not until i added a ton of hot sauce.

Then we got the appetizers, the mushrooms and water chestnuts, the steamed wanton were both top notch. The wantons were incredibly thin and tasty, the mushrooms were fat and tasty. The potato thingy was average.

we decided to try the pizza while the entrees came in. was peppers on half and sun dried tomato's on the other half. Superb. thin, tasty, enough crisp and just very well done.

the main course was the crowning. kung pao paneer, slight toughened paneer but the taste was just fantastic. The three treasure vegetable was also average.

Didn't get any dessert. The menu is very eclectic they have pasta, pizza, asian, dal and breads as well as some mezze. So plenty to choose from.

Overall, the ambiance has gone up quite a few notches, the food is good if they can iron out some niggles. The service is on the slower side but pleasant (the rice was below average, the soup was also weak)

All the issues i had they seemed to have somehow addressed them, they have done way better than i expected. Would return there soon.

i however don't like the way one of the owners (or his father) was treating the wait staff (in full view of patrons) Its not on. I wouldn't let the guy eat my dust with that kind of attitude.
Damage 4500 for 5 with drinks.

A Tragedy of Errors

Where do I begin...?

We read a lot of negative reviews about this place but decided to try it out for ourselves. For those not interested in the longer story, this was the worst dining experience I have ever had. The service is god-awful (not impolite but terribly untrained), the food would barely be called mediocre and they try and dress it up as a 'fine dining' experience when you have WWF playing on a wall projector!

Let me tell you our story.

Things started on a bad note, we walked in and were told by the polite lady at the entrance that there was no place (though we could see a table right in front of us). Her boss (perhaps the owner) came up and started yelling at her right in front of us, asking if all she does is 'sit around doing nothing'. Firstly, I don't believe staff should be treated badly and doing it in front of your customers does not inspire confidence.

So, we take our table and begin the 15 minute (I kid you not) wait for a) menus and b) WATER. The water finally took so long we switched to mineral water just to get it quicker.

The staff are so woefully untrained, while laying the crockery and cutlery they kept dropping stuff. The waiter set our places then realised he'd got the placing of the forks and spoons wrong... after studying the problem for a few minutes, he started over. By this time we had started finding the whole experience rather amusing so we were trying to keep straight faces.

We ordered the Kung Pao chicken, Thai green curry and steamed rice. The food came reasonably quickly and our waiter placed it on our table. He then opened up the curry and announced to us, 'You ordered green curry, but we made red, its okay na?' At this point I was actually expecting a candid camera or Mtv Bakra deal, however he was serious. This is when we suddenly get a loud shout from the waiter's station - "Have you got your NAPKINS?", we hadn't, so this kind soul threw us a napkin each and ran off to correct our order.

So the food was sent back, and after another wait, where we were entertained by a young lady near the entrance yelling "Shaamu, do you have my camera?" about 10 times (by which time we wanted to wander across and tell her where she could find her camera), we received our correct order. I will not try and gloss over this. The food is terrible. It has no salt (subjective, but I don't normally like much myself) and the Kung Pao chicken must have been an unlucky bird caught in an oil spill. I could literally paint my plate with the brown oil (this provides some entertainment while you wait for everything, kids might even get creative with it).

We decided that this place would take the royal flush if they managed to mess up the billing. They did. We waited as long for our food as we did for a bill of 3 items. The amounts were all okay though.

In closing, it's extremely unfortunate that this large property is being wasted like this. It is purely a management problem, as other people have said, the staff is just beyond clueless. You actually start feeling sorry for them after a point. Couple this with the way we saw the management treating them, one can expect this place has a pretty high attrition rate.

What can I say, my friends say I'm always too forgiving about places but I actually registered just so I could write this review. If nothing else it's taught me to trust the opinions on this site.

Ho Hum

Divided into three area - courtyard, bar and dining. Only the courtyard has great ambience but can get quite hot.

Started off with baked dim sum, golden fried corn and corn with watercress. Nothing worth writing about.

For the main course tried the vegetarian pizza and crostini platter. Quite good though a tad on the higher side.

The service was quite bad with the waiters just depositing the dishes on our table.

On the whole nothing great and can be given a miss.

Totally forgettable

One of the worst dining experiences I have ever had.

We sat in an area which was enclosed by what seemed to be a temporary "shaadi ka tent". The washrooms were the same as that of the building (not something you expect at a fine dine restaurant).

The food was totally forgettable, actually not, i remember it as being spicy and tasteless.

Service was like dealing with the staff at the before example of an ad for a training school - "before training" and "after training".

Overall, totally forgettable.

A fancy name and nothing else...

I would like to believe I am too smart to fall for the hype created around new places in this city, but once again I succumbed to the damn hype (I guess the fact that I was told there were no tables available last weekend made me think this place must be rockin')... Unfortunately we were left VERY disappointed.

First of all, (no offense to the previous reviewers) but I thought nothing of the ambience of the place. Agreed its large, but what you actually do with large spaces must count for something. While it need not scream new and shiny, I thought the courtyard looked almost run down and the inside dining area /bar were very blah.

The food....well I was just there on Sat night (and today's Monday) and if its possible I almost don't remember what we ate. To me it was generic Indian chinese food (with a hugely liberal dose of chilli flakes in every dish).The bamboo rice was the only dish which seemed to have some identifiable flavour, while all the sauces looked dark, spicy and ominous.

But while the ambience and the food MIGHT still make the passing grade (NOT) the service was possibly the worst I have seen in a while.Clearly untrained waiters, who were not even certain whether the wontons they had served me were vegetarian or not (a huge huge problem in my books). They also had no idea if the food had MSG (one waiter proclaimed vehemently it didn't, while the hostess said to my friend "this is chinese food it always has MSG")....I could go on but I assume you get the drift? It always makes me wonder....how do people think they can have a close to fine-dine place with staff that is so clueless about the basics?

So the damage was around Rs.700 bucks a head (without alcohol or dessert though I did have an awful syrupy mocktail - very avoidable). All in all a pretty poor experience...and so my quest for a new place that lives up to the hype continues. Clearly people, this just doesn't make the cut.

Mixed Bag

Gaurav's assessment is spot on! The reason it got 4 stars from me is because it is new and I believe they will improve over time.

Overall the place scores well for the ambiance, even though it seems like they still need to hang some decorations on the walls, etc. The outdoor deli area looked really inviting (may be hot in the summers).

The food was a mixed bag - wanting to taste much of the menu, we started off with a Margarita pizza which was quite nice (could have been crispier), the dim sum was tasty (but certainly not a patch on Royal China!), the pot rice, Dry Chilly Lamb were really nice (soft/succulent pieces of lamb), the Japchae (Korean glass noodles) was interesting. Do not order the 'Shredded Chicken in Green Red Pepper Sauce' - strange dish!!

The management is keen to improve asking each table for feedback on things they can change to make the dining experience more well rounded. My feedback to them - the service needs to improve drastically. The wait staff needs to know the food they are serving inside-out - something that was missing even though they were extremely courteous and eager to help.

The damage was 1000 bucks a head!

3.5 is more like it...

Just had dinner at Flamboyante. Interesting space this one, you enter and its like a giant fine dine place but its actually not. They have a lounge and a seating area away and enclosed. We sat in the open air space, which if you look one way is actually very cozy, comfy and chilled out. If you look the other way you can see shops and the rest of the building. Needs better design on one side.

The tom yum was good, the dim sum was above average and the main course veggies in Kung Pao (off menu) was very good, the teppan soba noodles were not too bad either. I wish portions were slightly larger.

Service is too slow, but i reckon they'll get better since they have been open only 3 days.

Overall we had a soup, two appetizers,noodles and veggies + dessert and 3 non-alch bevvies.

The menu is quite limited too, i think a little more expanse and if they call it an Asian menu lets include some more of Asia.

Damage of 1500
