My husband and I love trying out new restaurants. But, eating out in Bandra is quite an expensive affair if you don't want the regular, run-of-the-mill stuff. "Unique" doesn't come cheap. :) Also, most of the places are quite pretentious. Then, every once in a while, you stumble onto something like Quench. Voila....
Eating at Quench is a psychedelic experience. It begins the minute you walk in. The first thing you notice are the pictures - really funny beer montages.
Then you see the light fixtures - you got to see it to believe it. They are made of empty alcohol bottles and look very charming and quirky.
The seating area is not very big, about 6 to 8 tables. Then there's a tiny bar, seating 3 people at most. The alcohol list is the bare minimum - that's the only thing I would like them to change.
The staff is very friendly.
We tried the wines - there was only one variety of red and white, each. They were okay.
Next we tried their "Onion Rings", which were quite yummy, as was the "Risotto". The portions are huge.
What we liked best were the "Paneer Steak" and the awesome, yummy, delicious (I'm running out of adjectives) "Red hot wine Chicken". Its basically a sizzler with chicken in a red wine sauce with fettucini, fries and grilled veggies. Loved it. The chicken was fresh and melt-in-your-mouth and the sauce was very, very nice. I'm a vegetarian most of the time, because I can't stand the smell of non-veg. But I gorged on this chicken!
The price is just right as well. A meal for two, with wine, set us back by Rs. 800, only. Practically unheard of, in Bandra.
I just wish they offered a wider variety of desserts.
Overall, it was a great find, completely worth the hour spent on the internet trolling for a nice place to eat.
