great place in every respect!
A restaurant with a great ambience, extremely helpful staff and awesome food! It's a great place for Chinese cuisine.. ambiance is so cool and setting is so nice that one just looks around in wonder. The Buffet spread are all around the place with a huge sushi counter and then there are so many starters and dimsums and then in main course there are noodles, pulav, dal, paneer dishes and best is that in dessert we had ice creams that too of Baskin Robbins! Unlimited icecream alone makes it the best buffet place ever.
The best and the most sumptuous & elaborate buffet. This place is surely a paradise for any non vegetarian with an elaborate spread of Asian cuisines. There are various counters which include a sushi and cold food spread, a live appetiser counter etc. Brilliant ambience, quite spacious, well built and good and comfy. Its a cheaper version of seven kitchens if you like sushi and a good spread of appetizers and desserts this place is worth visiting
Best Fusion dishes ever
The place is huge, ambiance is classy and food is delicious. Lots of variety is available for veggies, sea-food lovers and other carnivore. You will be overwhelmed with the sheer amount of variety offered be it the Starters, Main Course or Desserts The place is highly pricey but the experience truly justifies the price. A live kitchen is centrally located in the restaurant where you could see the Chefs prepare a variety of Sushis. I loved the concept where they have each starter displayed at the counter with their placards in close proximity.
Prices keep climbing
Used to visit their Bandra branch years back but since then their prices have kept going skyward with no equivalent improvement in the format or the quality of food. Actually it's been slipping at this Andheri branch. But have to say a word for the ambience. Very spacious, well laid out and the huge fishes in the aquarium are always a sight. Starter variety I have noticed have been reducing and the main course is nothing much to write about. With Barbeque Nation & Sigree following the same concept they cannot afford to be this lax.
Could be much much more...
Have been to this joint thrice now and each time it seems it has been slipping. It’s a better place to eat for Non veggie as the spread is bigger. Also , frankly its not really global and I would say that its mostly pan Asian kind of cuisine . To list down what you would get :- Amazing variety of Sushi completely with kikoman soy & wasabi paste;great variety of Chinese authentic starters ; good variety of indian starters .However there isn’t any continental or Italian cuisine here and you wont be getting an pizza/pasta/burger/sizzler/Au gratin or baked stuff here. Frankly it thus makes the word Global fusion sounds a misnomer. But for me the biggest let down was the main course. Just a few score feet away from this place the barbeque nation serves a better main course by a long margin. Also the main course in Global fusion is largely Indian with a few stirred fried veggies or thai curry thrown in – again very limiting Asian fare.I also found the paneer dishes and the dal to be very very ordinary- frankly it seemed that they had almost put the main course as an afterthought. Iced tea & soft drinks and some soups are a part of the overall buffet menu. The desserts are strictly ok and are not really what you would jump out for. The biggest draw of the place is the lovely ambience and the huge 20 off feet aquarium on the side . For around 900 bucks ( taxes inclusive) on a weekend night I reall would visit it may not more than once a year
once a street vendor always a street vendor
Visited this place on 19/9/14. Food was excellent & so was the ambiance, however all this was negated by the shoddy service. Our order for starters did not materialize for a good 30 minutes. On inquiring about the same, staff Mr Ligambou shirked his responsibility and directed us to visit the live counter and inquire. As if that was not enough on being asked to spell his name he raised his voice. His manager pasang bhutia was an icing on the cake, he refused to give his business card !!.
street vendor demeanor of the staff is obliviously reflection of the owners past.
never visiting this place again.
Good, Bad & Ugly
The place was on my list for a while & when a special occasion came up, i decided to go there. Firstly they don't do anything special for Birthdays or Anniversaries, which i found very surprising. Now coming to the place - it has a very good ambiance with huge fish tanks & exotic fishes, which are very appealing.
The food looked amazing, now only if it tasted half as good as it looked!
As their concept works, we have to choose the dishes & hand over the respective papers to the nearest server. There is no server designated to your table. Almost everything is self service & yet there is a 10% service charge! Most of the time we received dishes which we didn't select, which was kind of disappointing. The drinks were included & unlimited (choose from soft drinks/ lemon ice tea/ fresh lime soda). The sushi was highly ok , the seafood starters (barring the garlic fish preparation) & the chicken dishes were really sad. The veg starters were marginally better. The main course was equally disappointing. The dessert section was probably the best of all, nice selection of Baskin ice creams & some assorted pastries.
All of this at Rs 1000 per person for dinner was certainly not worth the money.
Global Fusion...Fusion of Good & Bad...
The place itself is quite nice, caters to big families with ton of children. Also has some private seating areas. Ambience is ok.
Now to the food. Speaking purely in terms of the Dinner Buffet they have to offer. The Lamb Chops were amazing. However the Sushi and other Pan Asian Cuisine wasn't that impressive in taste, however it was well-presented.
The desert counter can do with a huge step-up and avoid serving tacky looking pastries and the Mango Shots which were a disaster.
The place has potential as long as they dial up like a 100 notches the quality and taste of the food being served.
After having patronised the Bandra outlet numerous times, I have witnessed, first hand, its steady decline in terms of food, service and overall experience.
Having said that, my experience at the Andheri outlet was great. The place is spacious, well laid out and the buffet spread was extensive as usual. The sushi counter in the centre was a great addition. The service was polite and attentive.
What I liked: Ambience, service, the sesame chicken, garlic prawns and pepper mushrooms. The Sula Chennin we sipped during the meal was perfectly chilled and the served. The dessert section was leaps ahead compared to the Bandra outlet. More variety, better selection. The dark chocoalte ice cream and the tiramisu were great.
What can improve: Please stop serving soft drinks etc in plastic glasses. Its TACKY! While we didnt complain or throw up a fuss about it, some of items ordered didn't arrive.
This is an awesome place came up in Andheri East. Beautiful Ambiance & large variety of food. The only disadvantage is for people who are pure vegeterians. The ambiance is smelling with the Non-veg food which a pure vegeterian is not able to sit in. It would be great if the restaurant can work on this part.
I would visit this place again for their food
Paradise for meat lovers!
This place had been on my list for a very long time,and it surely didn't disappoint!
I'll get right to the food.
I was so happy to see so much non-veg on offer,not only in terms of preparation,but the meat itself!
The Lamb chops were absolutely brilliant .. Meat cooked to perfection,topped off with a great sauce .. Just couldn't resist licking the sauce off my fingers!
Momos were good too,the covering just perfect .. Meat again cooked to perfection .. Sadly,couldn't find any dips to accompany them.
Tempura and chicken wings were a bit disappointing .. Bit too oily for my liking,have had better before.
Had a nice salad,with octopus meat .. Meat tasted good!
Sushi were again,brilliant .. And the kick from wasabi was spot on!
For dessert,I don't know how many times I went back for a pieces of Tiramisu pastry .. Bitter coffee,sweet cream,combined in a single bite a perfect burst of flavour!
Overall,had one of my best meat dining experiences! :)
PS : Ambiance was great too!
The quality of the food has dropped significantly. The pan-Asian variety is almost non-existent with Indian tandoor craze having creeped into everything. The soup was below par. I have never had such a tomato soup before. The main course was very ordinary without to much of a variety. Moreover the ice tea and even the Pepsi were highly diluted without any punch in them.
East Asian food fest
I curse myself for not trying this place before; its a real feast - and non-vegetarians would love it. Although its called Global Fusion, it would like to see more from the West - Pastas, Salads, Steaks, alike.. But all that was there was heaven. I still remember the Mango-drinking-yoghurt like thing, the Baskin Robbins ice-cream and bunch of other dessert. The starters were served at the table without any hesitation, including exotic stuff like prawns. If you are a foodie, you must try this!

Awesome place to try something new
Been here last month, as a birthday treat to my friends. I been a vegetarian and my friends been a non vegetarians,, can review both the options.
To start with,, this place should be visited strictly by the people who wants to try Japanese, I tried sushi for the first time,, i liked only one that was corn cream one, i tried dumblings,, again out of many,, i liked one. out of many starters,, panner options were good, so was garlic bread. my friends complained of chicken starter been too hard and fish been stale.
Things i liked: The ice tea, the ambience, quick service(even when d restaurant was full for lunch on a weekday), vegetable starters, Main course didnt had much options and anyways we were full by just tasting starters.
Desserts were decent,, nothing extreme special in it.
I would rate this place 3/5
Unique and memorable experience...
Had been to this place... When I entered the Global Fusion.. Was surprised to see the set up and arrangement.. Also with the way they arrange starters n all..
Well this is know for Japanese and other fusion food..
Not sure about Non-veg food as I am vegetarian.. Have many eating options in Starters, Main course, Japanese food including Sushi.. Desserts.. Lovely experience..
Well if I tell u about starters.. Never seen the arrangement in any other Restaurant.. They have put many Veg and Non-veg starters in display for selection.. You need to choose and reserve it for you... They will cook it fresh and serve on your table... You can have all starters and n number of time, as it's all buffet.... So starters will be served hot and right in your plate as per your preferences..
Well soup, salads and fruits are also cool..
The unique food is variety of Japanese food... Speciality if sushi.... I never had it earlier..
Quality of main course is good.. Paneer used for preparation is very fresh and soft....
Well in desserts.. They have many variety of pastries and mousse.... Also have 2 to 3 BR ice creams... Even Jelly was nice..
Must visit place but look little bit expensive.. Cost for 2 including taxes would be Rs. 1800.... But Quality is maintained..
Not upto the level......
Well they have nice ambiance no doubt but still if they are opening the second restaurant they should maintain the same level as the first one.
I always had lunch in bandra global fusion and was completely satisfied but this this I thought to experience the andheri one and got dissatisfied.
Few thing need to be improved.
Waiters should serve fast and take care of all the tables.
When the new customers are coming they should explains them what all are included and what not. (I always went there On Sunday brunch where they also give one alcoholic drink complimentary where as this time I went on Saturday and when I ordered they didn't tell if its included or not)
The buffet Items are lesser than the bandra one.
In dessert the icecream they had of only three flavour chocolate, mango and banana strawberry. Wtf! Common you cannot compromise in everything. In bandra they have 10 different flavour.
I believe if I need to come to global fusion again I will visit the bandra rather than andheri.
Coz of all the above reason ambience, service, food items.
I had heard a lot of this place from my friends and had decided to spend a lovely sat evening dinner there.
and it was a TREAT to eat at GF.
Quantity, Taste, Service and Price all were perfect for the variety of food.
Love the complimentary Aerated drinks and Fresh lime soda concept
Also desserts were very nice
Global Fusion is one of a kind! Its known basically for its Sushi's but the other dishes are also superb ! Its an exquisite restaurant! Its also worth the money! And the portion is so tummy filling that you will feel stuffed right after eating the starters! The sushi is a must try because its a total different flavour in your mouth! But please try the sushi at your own risk, not that its bad or something but many people have fallen sick after trying it! I tried the sushi and I am still alive so I guess it suits me! The people at Global Fusion have done an excellent job of providing a huge spread of food and different cuisines from all around the world! A few drawbacks! The desert is not very appealing! Sometimes the napkins and knife's are not there on your table so you need to ask for it! The good part about such a huge place is that there are about 50+ tables and the ambiance is so good and open that even when 100 people are dining at the same time it won't look crowded at all! Hats off to the staff and the Chefs of Global Fusion!
Nice place to dine with family & frnds
With a strong recommendation from my foodie frnds, me along with my wife n few close buddies went to Global Fusion on a weekend. The ambiance was amazing which was the 1st nice impression.. The restaurant is spread out huge with more than 50 tables so at any point of time you will not feel as too many people are stuffed in..
We all are veggies so compared to any other place we had good options from a standard paneer to kebabs to dumplings to mushrooms and the list went on...... The main course was also yummie followed by some nice dessert..
SO overall out of 5 i would rate it 4 and if you are a food lover (be that veg or non veg) you will definitely enjoy this place.. (and yes its not that expensive as it looks) :D
Good place to try a different cuisine
I have been to global fusion at andheri east and kindoff liked the spread they have..their appetizer spread is huge and the prawn papad is something that you will love..chicken dumplings are also nice. I love the ambience and their staff is courteous too..Desserts are too boring and are same everytime i went there.. I have been to there bandra outlet as well and i like the andheri one more than the bandra one in terms of space
Superb Place to Dine !
Hi Global Fusion located in sakinaka has superb ambience ,good Service and above all Good food, please make prior bookings if u going in a big group, It has a wide variety for Non Veg Food, Sea Food is YUM!.....people who are sea food lovers have to visit this place for its food,u get full only with the starters, such places are only good for starters, main course also has a good variety....but by the time your done with the starters, there is hardly any place for the main course....Must visit, not very expensive like it looks.......
I have been to Global Fusion in Bandra quite a few times and i thought why not try out the one at Andheri.
We visited the place on Sunday and it was filled to capacity .
The food is similar but is cheaper than Bandra.
The variety is great though non vegetarians would enjoy the place more, it does have some good options for vegetarians as well .
The dishes we enjoyed the most were the prawns ,crab, mushrooms and surely the deserts .
It being a sunday they had more dishes than usual also they gave a complimentary glass of either red or white wine ,beer or mojito .
The ambience is good and there is a huge fish tank with a variety of fish that we hadnt seen before .
The service is excellent .
Its like a feast ,one might get tired eating but the options never end :-)
Good for Non Veg food. Not much options for veggie
Global Fusion at Andheri is a nice place with very good ambiance. All the dishes are kept as samples so one can very well she the preparation and then inform to get the same. Lots of non veg options and my friends, which love non veg food, will cherish the place. I being a veggie had limited options, though enjoyed being at a nice place. Starters are are in so much variety that hardly anyone ends up with good main course. Deserts (cookies, mousse, ice creams, jelly cakes etc) are normal. Can be tried once.
Fell Sick and Bedridden for a week
I just had 6 pieces of sushi from the whole buffet and caught some allergy the very next day. My body had rashes all over and looked like an infected tomato. I was bedridden for a week due to fever and weakness.... very unhealthy food... would never try again.... 6 pieces of sushi cost me one week of office, lot of medicines and lot of discomfort.... try only if you want to fall sick
Great sushi !!!
Huge place so u never hv to wait too long ! Lovely ambience , delicious sushi , momos , and various diff starters ! Have to try baked garlic prawns !!! Too good ! After an unlimited range of starters try the buffet ! Dessert is not very impressive ... As they hv focused on the variety and not the quality !

Awesome Place For A Wonderful Occassion
It had been some time since I had taken my wife out to a place much different from the usual suspects.
Occassion was our Wedding Anniversary so wanted it to be extra special. Chose Global Fusion based on the reviews.
Was worried that being a Monday night, may not have too many people so we may feel isolated and alone. Guess what - when we walk in at 10.20 pm, the place is close to 75% occupied.
Lovely grand ambience, nice tables with private area for families as well. Food & Service is great. the Spread & Choice of food is wide, wider ...
Being a Monday, didn't have non-veg but I am surely coming back to enjoy them some day.
My wife loved the place and the food as well. Only complaints - Main course (we tried Veg only) was not great but with so many starters, not sure how many will reach the main course spread. Desserts are disappointing, not much variety...
Would love to come back with extended family very soon.
Ambience - 4/5 ; Location 3/5 ; VFM 4/5 ; Food Spread 5/5 Food Delivery 3.5/5 Overall 4.5/5
The Reigning Champ Of Buffets
Although new, the Global Fusion in Sakinaka beats its Bandra counterpart without a doubt. With a massive interior, which is used up very tastefully and beautifully, this restaurant is a treat for your eyes as well as your taste buds. With fish pools by the door and a magnificent flower horn by the entrance, the place has a very 'pan asian' feel to it. This, coupled with strategic placements of plants and fish tanks, makes quite an impression.
Coming down to the food, there are about 30 different varieties of dishes here. (a little less for the veggies though.) My favorites were the baked prawns with cheese, baked eggs, baked fish, tenderloin and dumpling soup to name a few, although there were a lot more. The main course was even better, although I was pretty full by the time I decided to have the main course. Nevertheless, I tried it out for taste. The Mutton Biryani, fish curry and Calcutta Crabs were fantastic and I found myself overeating again. Oh yes, and there was Sushi too!
The desserts were amazing too. There were pastries of different kinds and ice cream from Baskin Robins. Overall, Global Fusion was a brilliant experience, always has been. A dinner for two will cost you about 2000 - 2500 INR (without alcohol), depending on the day and time you choose to go.Although a little heavy on the pocket, it is a place I'll go to again and again.
Better & Bigger
I was thrilled to know about the new branch of Global Fusion at Andheri....but when I heard Sakinaka, I had second thoughts...
However, I must say that this outlet was much more bigger & widespread than Bandra. The prices are lower than bandra and the quality & ambiance is excellent. However, one observation about the food is that most of the dishes had more sweetness to them...eg; the prawns dish in the main course seemed to be much sweeter and beyond a point I could not consume it..the quantity & quality of the iceberg chicken was also a disappointment...but the others like the prawn tempura, dumplings etc...was exceptionally good...all in all nice place.
This place completely rocks. Be it the quality of food, spread, cuisine or ambiance.
We had been there for the 1st time and will surely recommend it to others as well keep visiting time and again.
The star performer here are the starters and its spread, almost 10.
Toooo good. Ambiance will take you in a different world altogether. You will just love it.
Gastronomic feast at a great price
Im not exaggerating when I say that Global Fusion is perhaps, one of the best things that has happened to me in life. Theres no other restaurant that offers so much value for money not only in terms of food, but also ambience and service which I have come across yet. I have been to both the Bandra and Sakinaka outlets, but I prefer the former one. Though the décor and ambience of both the places give you an exotic Oriental feel, the Sakinaka outlet seems to lag behind its Bandra counterpart. As for the music, the restaurant should rather play soft soothing instrumental Oriental music than English mushy love and breakup songs from the 80s and early 90s.
Now lets come to the best part the food. The sheer variety of mouth-watering dishes (veg and non-veg) on offer makes it impossible for anyone to sample half their menu. And the hardest part is choosing what to eat and skip, because most dishes are so visually appealing. Its like an exotic culinary red-light district that seduces you by its various offerings, patiently waiting to be devoured by you and will subsequently make you burst into multiple foodgasms!
The Sushi section is a Sushi lovers fantasy come true with numerous veg and non-veg varieties and salads. Though Id love to sample a bit of everything, its impossible to do so. So, my best friend (my faithful companion to GF) and I carefully evaluate what to take and skip. Sadly, our stomachs arent inflatable and theres a limit to how much food it can take, and theres a plethora of dishes to be tried. Its literally an episode of Man vs. Food for us.
From the veg variety, I had the Mushroom, Asparagus, Corn and Beancurd Sushi all were very good but the Mushroom and Corn were the clear winners for me. I also took Soba noodles served with chopped spring onions and Korean Kimchi. The Soba noodles were bland for my taste but the Kimchi was disappointing. From the non-veg variety, I had the Salmon, Tuna, Snapper Sushi. As for Sashimi, I had the Salmon, Snapper and Octopus (tough and chewy). There was also Chicken Sushi, which I avoided simply because it sounded weird. On my previous visit I had Turkey Sushi. There are some seafood-based salads and a couple with chicken-based too. Every bite of the various Sushi with a little bit Soy, Wasabi and Gari (Pickled Ginger) was an absolute pleasure difficult to describe in words. Best said, I was left foodgasming.
My second favourite is the deep-fried, non-veg appetisers (I dont waste time and the space in my stomach on its veg counterpart) consisting of just 3 but delightful items Prawns Tempura, Chicken Wings and Prawn wafers. The golden crisp Prawn Tempura, crispy Chicken Wings and Prawn wafers are a pure delight. However, when I visited the Bandra outlet some months ago, they served a sweet BBQ sauce as a dipping for these appetisers. Also, there was a sweet and spicy sauce on the dining table, which was a perfect accompaniment. Sadly, the Sakinaka outlet serves neither. I wonder why the discrimination?
My third favourite is the widespread veg and non-veg steamed and stir-fried appetiser section. Heres where choosing dishes is a problem because after having Sushi and fried appetisers, my stomach is somewhat full and I dont like wasting food. So I choose few items like Prawn Sui Mai, Pan fried Chicken dumplings (both average), Stir-fried Prawns (good), Peppered Mushrooms (lip-smacking), Tenderloin (melt-in-themouth), Baked Prawns with Cheese (yumm), Creamed Corn (avoidable), and some Fish. Theres so many more dishes to try, I feel bad unable to eat them.
After eating all these, theres barely any place for Main Course, which again has many dishes, some Indian (surprise surprise!) like Dal, Paneer, Mutton and Veggies. Theres also Thai curries, Noodles and Rice dishes and Singaporean Crabs. I just had 2 dishes Fish in Yellowbean Sauce (good) and Prawns in Pepper (holy moly!). As for drinks, theres soft drinks, coolers and alcohol (booze is charged separately). We opted for Lime Soda Sweet, which wasnt tangy or sweet and I had to repeatedly ask them to add extra lime juice and sugar syrup. Their Iced Tea wasnt good either.
No matter how stuffed one is, theres always some room for dessert. Unfortunately for me, a person with a mammoth sweet-tusk, I find the dessert section perpetually very disappointing. I dont find the pastries and jellies remotely enticing. Their cake slices are dry. The only saving grace is the Baskin & Robbins ice cream (just a handful of flavours) and on my recent visit a week ago, to my dismay they had just 2 flavours Mango and Chocolate. The Mango shot was strictly average. I hope GF takes a cue from Mainland Chinas dessert section.
Overall GF is totally worth the money. The vast menu is outstanding and the quality is great. The lovely ambience and service just adds to your experience. The Sakinaka outlet (cheaper than the Bandra outlet) charges Rs 616 for lunch and Rs 700 for dinner on weekdays, inclusive of taxes. Charges are higher on weekends. Most people may not afford to eat there often but its one gastronomic feast that they can indulge in, once in a while.
Meri sushi hai Japani, yeh dessert Englistani...
Archana's treat for her elevation as the COO. So there we were - the boss and 12 of us, at 1300 hours of 18th May, driving towards the place.
The moment you step inside, the sheer luxuriousness of this place hits you in the face. The frescoes, the fish tanks, the decor, the enormity - all jaw dropping. A corny dialogue of Kader Khan touches your mind : " Aaaaah, yeh bangla hai ya Bengal...!"
We are well settled at our table when we learn the rules. You want something, you get up and look around. Ok Sir. We do. Ooh la la...
There's a gargantuan spread of Sushi samples kept in glass cases, decorated so attractively, they seem droolworthy. For the uninitiated, sushi is a Japanese invention, a dish created out of packing vinegared rice with raw / cooked / boiled fish for some period of time till the fish pickles. The fermented rice and the pickled fish added with some garnishing / fillings / toppings / condiments creates magic. And magic was created here.
Okay, the procedure is to give the chits placed in a mini basket against each showcased dish to the attendant standing nearby, mentioning your table number. And the dish is freshly cooked and brought to you on your table. Quite a service, though a flip side to this is that it invariably leads to a considerable amount of wastage. Most people would like to have a nibble, taste the fare and then decide if they want to go the whole hog.
Apart from sushi, there were a startling number of other starters. Deep fried golden jumbo sized prawns, chicken crispies, prawns tempura, Ice berg chicken, barbequed lamb chops, baked fish, boiled fish, dimsums, dumplings, prawns with melted cheese, tandoori starters...the list is endless.
I could observe only two varieties of non veg soup, one Tom Yum Prawns soup, and one chicken. The former didn't have any prawns bits in it.
We were also served unlimited soft drinks on the table, which included fresh lime soda, iced tea or any other carbonated drinks of our choice.
Starters done, the brave ones headed for the main course, which was another story altogether. There was a crab, a fish and two chicken preparations.
I opted for just one small bowl of white rice, some chicken gravy (gravy ONLY), one bowl of fish with gravy and a couple of pieces of crab. And you didn't need any nut crackers to break the crab shells away, they were easily torn off by mere biting. The succulence inside was yummy enough to convince the stomach for two more pieces.
Had enough? No wait, what about the desserts? The restaurant falls woefully short of expectations in the desserts section, and surprisingly so. Three lame flavors of Baskin and Robbins - mango, dark chocolate and some other chocolate laced one. Mini cubes of orange and strawberry jelly. Some four varieties of mini pastries.And three varieties of biscuits. Why? Why? WHY?
But hell,kabhi kisi ko muqammal jahaan nahin milta...I loved the place nevertheless.
Will I come back again. You bet.

Nice place for people living in Andheri East !!
One of the best buffets I've ever had. The ambiance is perfect. The entire set up, the seating, the music, the lights. The quantity they provide in each dish is brilliant !! Global Fusion is all about Experience and endless choice of continental starters. Its a complete Value for money experience !! Food never lets you down and service is a bit tardy compared to Bandra one, but Starters ordered in first round kept arriving over the course of our meals all the way beyond desserts. Overall I will give 8/10 !!
My first visit to global fusion....and must say it was worth visiting...
Beautiful entrance... Amazing ambience... The paintings,fishtanks ,lighting perfect...
It had a ample of space and perfect seating arrangement. A wide spread of buffet..... Soups starters dimsums sushi main course desserts.. All was worth paying...
Only things that disappointed me were sushi and maincourse..... Desserts were fi.e baskin robbins icecream and few smqll pastries..
Ovreall worth paying.....
Recommend by me for people who love to eat..
Great spread - reasonably priced
We were a party of 9 guests who were treated to a sensory overload of taste and variety @ the Global fusion restaurant in Andheri-east. Right when you step in, you take in the tasteful decor and the open kitchens and it heightens your expectations. Fortunately the food and service live up to your expectations and the buffet is reasonably priced. The sushi selection is good and tasted fresh. The huuuge variety of starters is the star attraction here with enough to fill you up that you might wanna skip to the desserts which feature baskin robbins ice creams along with a selection of pastries. Overall, a good value for lunch with a medium/large sized group - ensure reservations because this place fills up fast.
Excellent ambience. The place is huge! We were a little skeptical in the beginning as we had been to the Bandra branch many times and had read mixed reviews about this place.
But the place did not disappoint at all. The range of sushi, the non-veg delicacies, the Indian spread; totally awesome. True value for money.
Service was impeccable. It was my daughter's birthday and the captain organised for a cake with candles and also got a few staff members to sing along with us.
If you like Japanese, Chinese, South-east Asian food, this is the place to go. Sit, relax, sip the drinks they offer along with the buffet, chat, and taste food from every corner of the eastern world.
And remember, go on a weekday. Have fun!
Awesome Spread at Awesome Price
Global fusion is located at one of the nosiest and busiest roads in Andheri East but once you are inside it is a totally different world. The ambience is very relaxed and tranquil. The seating arrangement is well spaced out which is a plesant surprise compared to its Bandra counterpart.
The spread of the buffet is quite elaborate, specially, the starters. The spread though seems to be highly tilted towards the seafood with some nice and unique preperations of prawns. I personally loved the Prawns with melted cheese.Sushi here needs special mention because one will not get such quality and experience at this price.The branch also offers some of the tandoori starters although they can be skipped.
The main course fails to meet the expectations set by the starters. It neither matches in the spread nor the taste.Desserts are primarily ice creams from Baskin Robbins and cakes.
Considering the kind of cuisine being offered the service is pretty fast and does not leave you waiting for long.
Given the price for all of this the place is a total paisa vasool and for sea food lovers it is a must go!
After waiting for around 20-25 minutes we were excited to try this new place.
Despite d lavish spread n great decor d food sucks... D only thing yummy was d "Baskin robbins" in their dessert section ;)
The service was also not up to the mark. Had to ask 2-3 times for glasses,cutlery n even tissues.
On top of it they had even run out of mouth freshners . Upon asking for them we were told in a jiffy 'sorry its over '
A penny for Asian food.
How often have you wanted to eat some good Asian food(Japanese,Chinese,Thai etc) and thought to yourself ''Heck,I can't afford sushi right now''. Walk into Global Fusion at Andheri RIGHT NOW.I don't know if this is a just-started-hence-prices-are-low thing....but at Rs 375 + tax on weekdays (total = Rs 463 approx) and Rs 525 (dinner-fri,sat,sun) + tax on weekends,it's a real steal of a deal.They have a huge selection of starters,main course,dimsums,desserts and more.Free unlimited cold drinks!I had some very tasty prawn tempura and prawn wafer,a delightfully non chewy Octopus nigiri,a decently done gunkan sushi for starters.Moved on to a freshly made red snapper nigiri,supreme chicken sushi (so-so),prawn dimsum,chicken and coriander dimsum,pepper fish dimsum and ginger fish.They have a system where you see platters of food on display,pick up a pre-written chit which has the name of the dish-note down your table number and the number of portions you want.And voila!It is delivered right to your table.I thoroughly enjoyed the hot prawn preparation and the fish in black bean sauce too.The crab cooked with curry leaves had me smitten.The beef terriyaki was another winner.The mangolian chicken,chicken sushi and other chicken stuff is alright,I preferred the seafood preparations more.The sashimi platter was a sheer delight with freshly cut tuna,red snapper,salmon and a pepper crusted fish.Overall a very good experience.I personally think the selection at the Bandra outlet is better,but this is also worth visiting if you're in the vicinity.Dessert was a let down with gaudily coloured squares of cake flavoured with strawberry/blueberry/chocoloate.The jelly was terrible.They had a wide array of Baskin Robbin ice creams that patrons can pick from.The desi palate wale people will also fine the usual spread of mutton seekh kebab,methi mautter,veg pulao etc-I dint try ANY of that.Can't wait to go back and stuff my face with more sushi before they jack the prices up!
Good on all counts
Its new, so I suggest you go there when it looks bright and shiny. A large restaurant space with appropriately spaced tables, this one is a breather from cramped up tables that most restaurants have now in this city.
Thankfully lots of options for vegans, you must at least plan for a two hour lunch. Food was great. Go out of your way and eat there!
Went there last night to check if it matches upto its sister outlet in Bandra, and I must say it does..and much more.
Will just highlight some of the differences between the two...
Ambience and setting quite good. Variety of food was nearly the same as at Bandra. I'd say the number of choices was identical, though the Andheri branch offeres Indian kababs in starters, and Indian Main Course with rotis, in addition to the Oriental fare.
The place was booked for a Thursday night, and I was lucky to walk in and get seating. Starters tasted better than those at Bandra. The main course was good, considering the number of people thronging the counters, though it wasn't upto my taste(and that is in no way Global Fusion's fault...just my peculiarity).
I had fun, and would definitely be in a toss up as to which branch to visit again.
Damages for 2 Adults and 2 children was 1800/- inclusive of tip and taxes. Seems this is an opening offer, though the prices might change to match up Bandra.
My kids enjoyed it and ate plenty, which says a lot about the place.
Do visit, and soon for big savings !!!
Loved the Ambience, Excellent Food & Great Service
Went to this restaurant on their innauguration night for the first time and I must admit, that I was highly impressed right from the time I entered the place till I left. The ambience was absolutely wonderful and very tastefully done up and one felt as if they were visiting a 5 star hotel's restaurant. The place is huge and can seat a great capacity at one time. We were welcomed by the staff who were extremely courteous, warm, and had a smile on their faces even while serving our huge group of 10 people at a time. The Food was brilliant, with a lavish spread of Starters (Veg/Non-Veg) that consisted of Japanese, Chinese & Indian dishes. We chose our dishes and they promptly served us our starters one by one and each starter was delicious and had amazing flavours and were well cooked. I was too stuffed to eat the main course, however did manage to eat some only to try it out. The main course consisted of Indian, Thai, Chinese dishes and were quite good too. They also had a lovely spread of desserts, ranging from Chocolate Mudcakes (yummy), Strawberry and Chocolate pastries, jellies, souffles and they also had some awesome variety of Baskin Robbins ice creams which left me totally stuffed but impressed. Their dinner buffet is reasonable priced considering the kind of spread it offers, but I guess it'll increase their prices soon :-(
This place is strongly recommended to all....After all, where else would you get a great combination of great ambience, good and prompt service, excellent food, desserts and a reasonable price tag that doesn't burn your pockets too. I'm a happy foodie and that's what counts in the end...doesn't it..???? :-)
