First choice !

Had been here to celebrate my birthday with family...The ambiance is classy n nicely done, the staff is courteous and a very nice pan Asia spread.
We ordered the Methi til ka shek for starters and I would highly recommend it.
It is just a melt in mouth dish.
For the mains we ordered the paneer butter tikka masala ( a little non spicy than v normally eat but a very delicious creamy edge to it)
The dum aloo was also relishing..
For Indian breads we ordered a variety of them namely onion cheese kulcha, garlic butter naan, butter roomali roti, kashmiri naan & missi roti.all were very tasty (Huge portions )
The subz handi biryani was extremely delicious n aromatic .
A very nice place to hang out for family dinners.
Highly recommend !

Lazy Lazy Lamhe

If you are looking for a place where you dont mind utterly SLOW service.. choose food first ..The staff seems to be lost in their own world, probably they are not able to handle a full house. There was a time when i was about to loose my temper because of the slow service.

The food is good though followed by the ambiance.

food not first

I went to this place on the festival of Holi. The service was horrible, and the quantity of food was below average. The only thing to look for was the ambience of the restaurant, and the staff's hospitability. Specially the hostess. She welcomed us warmly with a beautiful smile, as frirndly as anyone could be. No reason to visit the place ever again. A horrible experience.

Birthday party place

we celebrated our daughters 5th BDay here. The ambience was good and the staff friendly. Debashis is a great restauranteur .... he's a chef who has been around the globe and knows his food....maybe that's why I was expecting the food to be as great as his Death by Date Ice cream which he flies in from Kolkatta...or his meetha pan ice cream.

The non-veg starters were okay and a few veg starters as well. But the pasta was too bland even by my kids taste. I guess I did not order the right stuff possibly. Hopefully the next time I am there I will get some unique dishes and will change my review.

All the best Debashis. This place has great potential.

Food and ambience first

Visited this place on a Friday evening. The experience...right from the time you enter the lobby of the building..is very unique! The decor is simply mindblowing!!! The food is out of the world. The vegetarian fare is awesome. Although a non-vegetarian myself, I did not mind skipping the non-veg order as the veg fare itself was soooooo good (my husband is a vegetarian)....The service is also great..the personal touch by the manager is highly commendable

Only one word--Mindblowing!!!!!!!!

Yesterday, I was with my family for the Barshobaran festival. The moment you step into the restaurant, the experience starts.(I will not disclose it--let the surprise remain!!!!) One thing's for sure, the experience will be something which will take you off your feet. The food is just too good. The staff is always there to help you. Mr.Debashis Roy, personally spends time with you. It is the small small things that has been taken care soo beautifully, that impresses.
Surely this is an experience, one should never miss!!!!!!

Awesome experience!!!

We went there on 16th March'13 and the place was really nice. Not only the food was good but the interiors was well used and wonderful! Drinks were good. (Mock-tails unique and refreshingly nice & cocktails excellent).
There was tasty chat on the house and they also gave some cheeslings along with drinks... though these are little things but gives a welcoming feel to the whole dining experience. Please keep this up. :-)
I really liked it and would definitely revisit it...

Food LAST at Food First

Ya... you got that right - food is LAST on their list of priorities. And for the first time it was a Burrp review and rating gone terribly wrong for us.

We started with Paaya Soup. Thankfully the Steward had the grace to pre-warn us that the mandatory paaya piece would not be there (because some people do not find it appealing ). I innocently believed him.

One of the main reasons I relish Paaya Soup is the definite twang that it has because of the inherent taste of the mutton (good quality) and the secretions that it has when you cook it for that long , at that temp. When the Paaya soup appeared I promise you it tasted like it had been prepared from some soup powder. And made me re-think exactly there werent any 'Paayas' visible in it.

Next came the Sunehra Murg ke Kebab . Again - terrible meat ! And the marinate , though potentially well spiced, had obviously had little time to do anything good to the meat. So bad meat + less marination time combined with inadequate understanding of how long does the kebab need the koyla - and bingo ! you have the staid, non-succulent, sometimes soft sometimes chewing gummish Sunehre Murg ke Kebab from Food First.

When I complained the first time round they actually offered to replace it. Which they did. IN record time ! Unfortunately it was worse than before. Also I had requested that they serve it with simple kachoomber - as in didnt need dahi or anything - simply finely chopped onions and a dash of lime.They said it isnt the way they do it - OK. But then , this time it came with thickly sliced Onion Rings !!!!! Thats when we got really upset - and within seconds the Kachoomber was on the table !!!!!

Incidentally this Kachoomber was the ONLY thing they got right that evening !

Didnt have the guts to eat anything else here today evening.

Simply took an auto to Mumbai Tawa which is down the lane and relished the succulent, juicy , well marinated, well cooked kebabs.

PS : On an after thought - even the simple terrace of Mumbai Tawa was better than teh airport-like girdled decor of Food First. Seriously guys ! Get your food sorted - we will forgive u the bad interiors.

Dear Ma'am, Thanks for your visit and the precious time you have spent for us in Burrp !! I am sorry for not satisfying your need ! We never use any soup powder what you have written and paya, with bone and flesh , will be disturbing to eat in soup bowl, that's why we don't put in it! In your next visit, if you need that definitely I will provide you !!And the way we make Sunehara Murg, may be you dont like I am sorry for that but it is one of our best selling item ! Finally Ma'am I am really sorry for your dissatisfaction and not providing you

Inefficient Cordination

I had been to this place for dinner on Valentine’s Day and although i did not manage to find a table, i found their service and coordination - Terrible. The restaurant is wonderfully set with a high ceiling and glass side wall but it could have been way more pleasing if guests would have been handled well. I understand that it was Valentine’s Day but i don’t understand a reason why you cannot have a manager near the front door coordinating wait times. I was waiting inside the restaurant for nearly 30 mins and there was utter chaos. Some of them waiting for food that was ordered nearly an hour back. Nobody was willing to confirm the duration of wait time. This made me wonder what the point of waiting for a table is if the restaurant is incapable of serving the ones who were already seated. I left after waiting for 35 mins assuming that I wouldn’t get a table and even if I do will I ever get what I want to eat!

great food and ambience but bad service

i visites this reataurant on valentine's day. Lets start with good things first. As soon as u enter it has a high glass ceiling. The posiioning of the tables is very good. overall excellent ambience. The food was amazing. now coming to the bad part.i had specifically requested at time of reservation for a window view table which i did not get.The manager told me that its on first cum first serve basis. The service was horribly slow.The food took ages to come and somewhere that does spoil yr fun.The service was bad.infact people were literaly shoutin n fightin at the restaurant because of the service.in the end i jus gave a suggestion that due to yr inefficiency u shouldnt even take service charge from yr customers as a matter of gesture to which they refused.then i aksed them why did i not get the table when i was told specificaly u wil get it.In the end they said they wont take the bill but said as if they wer obliging me.they finaly didnt charge me but sir let me tel u, i stil dont mind cumin n payin yr bill.bt next tym pls dun show yr customers as if u are obligin dem when yr staff was inefficient and could not serve anyone on time orelse other customers wudnt hv walked off.They din charge me but after that the warmth was lost and at time of leaving i was being feel like a beggar who was obliged and given food for free.Sir let me tel you i will remember this and if im around next tym near yr restaurant i wil come and pay yr bill because i din cum there for free fud.and i mean it because the way i was treated after that was not correct especialy when yr staff accepted its yr mistake.Ii came for a nyc evenin.my evenin was sumwhere spoilt. the rating is high because of food and ambience.and sir if my bill is going to be a cost of somebody salary i wil pay it immediately because i dont want yr obligation.

One Word- Awesome..

One who visits Food First will obviously appreciate evrything about this place. But what i liked the most is the ambience. It is like a dream date if u want to take ur loved one there. Apart from that the food is excellent, less oily and quite healthy. For food i would rate the restaurant 10 on 10.. the only thing which was disappointing was the service. very SLOW.. Overall a great expierence..A must visit with your spouse.. gives you the actual feeling of romantic candle light dinner.

Much awaited fine dine restaurant in suburbs

There was a dearth of restaurants in this part of the suburbs and Food First comes as a relief for all the food lovers. Now people don't have to travel to Andheri-w to visit the overcrowded restaurants. It has the finest Indian cuisine and an unmatched ambience. The variety in the bar menu is to die for. You can only experience such hospitality in 5 star hotels.So what are you guys waiting for. Get your seats reserved now. Cheers!!!!!

Innovative Food with a beautiful view!

The first thing you notice when one enters Food First is the height of this restaurant and the huge glass ceiling. Its one of the most innovatively designed places, ive seen in a very long time. Be sure to catch the seats right close to the windows. It gives you an amalgamation of an indoor but outdoor feeling. I went there for dinner, but would love to see how it would be in the day with all the sunlight coming in and making the restaurant look even more beautiful! The lounge/bar area is also done up very tastefully with some great lighting.
But the best part of the restaurant wasn't the gorgeous interiors... it was the food.. and the place is rightly called food first! The general manager was kind enough to recommend some interesting dishes that were truly delectable. they gave us an amuse bouche to start with which was on the house, and then we went on to the starter made of papad, patori fish main course-dal makhni, mushroom in pyaaz and garlic naan! all of the dishes were fantastic! To top it all they suggested us to have a Gud (jaggery) icecream, which was a burst of superb flavour in my mouth.. When you go there.. try this for sure!
The staff was very nice , helpful courteous and knowledgeable about what they were serving us!
I am definitely going to go back again- This place truly has Indian food with a twist!!!
