Had a blast at Indus with friends last night. A small yet adequately placed joint with a mixture of Lounge n a Diner was nothing else but an unexpectedly cool joint for a friends get togather in South Mumbai. Their warm n wonderful service topped with tasty food n mix of drinks left us mesmerized.Only point I may want to bring to the notice of management was the syper chilling AC which could have been lowered a bit so that those who are not drinking Alcohol can also enjoy.What I liked the most was Golati Kebabs which were easily melting in the mouth.
I love this place and have been here many many times. The palce is divided into two section downstairs and upstairs, upstairs is rather quiet as compared to down stairs. Recenetly I reached there at around 9 PM with a friend and sat by the bar and order a pitcher of beer (Rs 675) for 5 glasses and order a couple of starters the aloo achari (Rs 220) and the paneer tikka (rs 250), both the starters were amazing and came with tandoori roti and dal makhani. The starters go really well with beer and a complete value for money. They have a projector playing either cricket or music videos. After 11 o'clock the place transforms its self into a full fledged. club with bollywood tracks playing all around. A great pace to chill unwind on a weekend!
We may have gone with barely any expectations, but Indus far exceeded them.. We have just found the perfect hole in the wall for drinks after work on Friday. After a long discussion and looking at at least 20 places on burrp! we decided to head to Mondy's for drinks on Friday night after work. As usual, Mondy's was packed and we agreed that something quieter might be better. I've been to Indus a long time ago and vaguely remembered it to be decent. So we walked past bade miya and bagdadhi and walked around the block to Hotel Diplomats, Indus. Its divided in two sections, one upstairs and another one downstairs. We got there at about 7 and were the only patrons till 10ish. It might seem dingy at first but is in fact really cozy and comfortable.
We ordered, a round of drinks, a cheesy potato starter and a paneer starter. Surprisingly, our starters came with tiny pieces of roti and a small bowl of delicious daal makhani. We liked the daal so much that we ended up ordering a portion of dal just to eat with some roti. :) We ordered another round of drinks and starters as well, reshmi chicken kabab and another paneer one. Simply fantastic. At about 10, when we were finishing up our last bits of daal, roti and kebabs a few people started trickling in. Cool bunch of people - there to have some good conversation with buddies over drinks and some excellent food... just like us.
Really classy place at affordable prices. It has the mix of a lounge as well as fine dining. Booze and food is reasonably priced for the kind of ambience. If you are a non veg freak please try the Chandi Kebab. It is worth dying for !!!
