Lovely Ambience!

Its a great place to chill with friends. Try their Chicken Satay, which I never forget to order. It is exactly like its name, ie a Red Box. Also try their Grilled Prawns Lemon Paprika. Although nothing exquisite, it won't disappoint you either. So go and give it a go.

Good food in relaxed ambience

I have been patronizing Red Box Café for years now and have generally had positive experiences at the place. This particular Red Box outlet is very spacious, done up in red and black. Personally I find the red color theme of Red Box Café to be a bit too loud. Here, thankfully, one side is entirely glass which lets a lot of fresh light in and tones down the loud colors. My typical order at Red Box includes a portion of their Tuscan bread. This is one dish on their menu which I have always loved: crisp baguette slices, topped with tomatoes, herbs and cheese and baked. This is like a Bruscheta but tastier. Other than that I also recommend their pastas, especially the Cannelloni, which is always creamy and subtly in flavour. The service here is exceptionally good. The order-taker guides well and is forthcoming with options. One never feels hurried through the meal. I recommend the place anytime for a relaxed, casual meal.

ok cafe... expected more from it

Nice place... actually I went there n found a birthday party going on in one corner. Making it noisy and cluttered. The food is nice. Liked the non veg platter. I really liked the service.... very friendly n attentive. Prices looked cheap but the hidden taxes got the bill to expensive. They ambience is very casual...did not impress me. Overall good time but not my type. I like ambience n music with good food. Found it casual n noisy

Will never visit again

I am giving one star only as I have no other option. I had ordered lemon ice tea which had ants floating in it. We also ordered nachos with cheese however the nachos were not crispy. We had informed this to the. Manager who replaced these items. However, we got to see which we never thought the same ice tea was refilled after removing the ants to other customer. We were shocked to see such a thing happening at this restaurant as it a part of a reputed brand group. An never gonna visit this place and would strictly advise people to visit at their own risk.

been here once. loved the music and the cheese fondu. but thats about it. the prices are relatively high. but then again only been there once. if they do come up with some price cuts, then its a good place.
oh ya.. but the ambiance is amazing.. never seen such interiors.
Good idea would be to go in a group for a gathering or small meals

Food poisoning

My daughter was at Red Box in Seepz for a Send-Away party with a large group of her friends, yesterday 8th July Sunday for lunch. She had the Steak, which seemed ok. But in the night she developed a very bad case of food poisoning (she did not eat anything after the lunch) and kept throwing up - more than 7-8 times. I am not aware if any of her other friends have a similar problem. My concern is what kind of quality check is done on the 'meats' that are served. How does the restaurant evaluate the age, origin, health & related issues with meat? My request to this and all the restaurants out there is - "for the sake of money DO NOT sacrifice quality". We come out to enjoy a meal out and end up falling quite ill, because proper care is not taken, may be old stock was cooked and served? may be the kitchen is not hygienic and clean, it could be any number of reasons!

Food quality sub standard

Been a fan of Red box for long however I agree with the previous reports that the standards are going down and fast. The last visit the pepper steak was insipid and much below the usual standards. The service was extremely poor and you had to beg for a waiters attention in spite of the place being half empty. Most of the staff were only interested in the IPL. Waited 20 mins after the meal before someone asked about dessert. Guess the fixed service charge included in the bill means no more interest from the staff regarding service.

Dropped quality

We have to hunt for chicken in chicken sizzlers where you can find only cabbage...the pitcher tasted more like medicine than fosters...the service has remarkably dropped over the past one year...the overall quality of redbox is deteriorating over past one year and is below appreciation now...

it had become a yukk place to have food only thing you can enjoy is music and that too because its not made by them.

CAUTION - Worlds worst staff inside !!!

All of a sudden "dont judge a book by its cover" makes soo much sense ...
This place always looked pretty darn nice from the outside...was actually desperate to go der..so my boyfrnd took me for dinner on valentines day..trust me...i walked outta dat place afta 3 hrs without havin my dinner...The most shameless,mannerless and arrogant staff iv ever seen in my life...starters din reach my table before an hour...every drink that was asked to be repeated did not come before 45 mins (after reminding each waiter atlst 3 times) it felt like they wer fermenting the alcohol from scratch and getting it...the starter that we had ( a lamb sumthg) was nuttin extraordinary. After complaining to the so called manager we were actually told to do what we want and complain to whoever we want..i had to literally tell one of them that i have asked for my bill and if it dsnt reach my table within 15 minutes im walkin outta here widout paying...i thought that this malfunction might have taken place just cause of the chaos and crowd on valentines day...but afta reading the below reviews its clear that this is a daily ritual..i definitely have been served way better and with much more respect at shady bars and restaurants..im nt even sure if this review will even make a difference to the people runnin that hell hole but i hope i can warn u guys reading this to go at your own risk...
P.S. Dont go by the 1 star that iv rated this place with..i wanted to post the review with no stars at all cz dats jus wat this place deserves..but since that dsnt happen hence...1 forceful, jus for the heck of it star...

Great Food

I went to Red Box Cafe yesterday evening with a friend of mine and was pleasantly surprised by the food, It was yummy awesome , considering the reviews that I had heard about this place that it is over hyped and stuff the food was very nice....

Okay 1st we were guided to their new Lounge "Red Ant" which is on the first floor , but since I was in mood for sizzlers we headed back to Red Box. Just before heading down I had a quick look on the drinks menu of Red Ant and OMG it was damn expensive considering Cocktails were starting from the range of 350-400 bucks..

Anways so finally after getting a table at Red Box ..... we ordered two mocktails to start off I ordered Virgin Pinacolada ( considering it to be safe bet and thought no one can screw this drink but Red Box ppl managed to screw this worst Pinacolada ever , Please AVOID this)
My friend ordered "Love Dream" which was Nice

Ok for starters we ordered Vermessali fried chicken = which was very nice and the mayo sauce they gave along with it was Awesome :D

for the main course we ordered Pink Pepper chicken with spaghetti which was very nice aswell and fillng so overall a very good food experience

Total damage = Rs 1000 for 2

It is a bit expensive but not that expensive considering the area, Burrp please change your Price range for this place from 2 to 3 starts

Excellent Hummus

Went to Red Box Cafe for a meeting yesterday evening. They've got an an indoor as well as as an outdoor section. We chose to sit outdoors as the weather wasn't too hot.

The beers were served chilled. They have a choice of Kingfisher, Corona, Budweiser, Heineken etc. For starters we ordered a plate of hummus and pita bread. The hummus was very well made.

We also ordered a plate of garlic bread, which was also good.

I had gone here a long time ago and virtually rediscovered this gem in my neighborhood.

Recommended for small groups.

Very Rude Staff and Management

I was here dining with my friends till about 1.30 am, which is the closing time for the cafe. Just around 1.15 am a waiter comes to inform us that the place is going to shut down. We anyways were ready to leave in the next couple of minutes. Our bill arrives and even as we are signing it the management abruptly shuts down the lights. [ This has happened with us on two earlier visits to this place as well] The lights come back on when we ask "how do we sign the bill without the lights on?". As one of the friends goes to the restroom we wait at the table for his return, but then again we are reminded by another waiter that "its 1.30". Almost immediately another one comes to remind us that "its 1.30". (and not in a polite way) It was like they were almost ready to physically shove us out of the place. We go to speak to the manager, about the impolite staff. The manager instead of hearing us out, cuts us in the middle of the conversation, and again we get to hear the same "its 1.30" record. If the cutting us in the middle of a sentence part was not enough he turns his back and walks away.
This was the worst ever dinning-out experience. Its surprising that people in the hospitality business can be so discourteous and rude and completely not bothered about the fact that their behaviour can lead to them loosing customers..Please think twice about visiting the place in the evening. Unless you want to be treated like dirt, if you overstay even a minute beyond 1.30 am.

Expensive but good

Red Box is known for its continental food. The ambience is pub-ish. Music is too loud; you’ll have to scream while talking. The walls, lights, furniture, upholstery and the menu book are all in red color symbolizing the name of this restaurant.
I recommend you try Cheese Fondue. It’s served in a dish with a mini burner below to keep the cheese melting hot where you dip your bread pieces using a thin metal rod. One Cheese Fondue is sufficient for four people and perfect to begin your meal with. Among fish food, Lobster is the best, it’s served along with the shell and head and nicely broken down for you to reach out to the meat which melts in your mouth. The aroma and flavor will spin your taste buds. Food at Red Box is quite foreign to the palate.
If you’re celebrating your friend’s birthday, you cannot carry cakes purchased form outside; you will have to purchase cakes available at Red Box. Food is pretty expensive. Cheese Fondue costs Rs.650 and the Lobster (single piece) will cost you an astounding amount of Rs.750. I would give Red Box a 3/5.

The Big Blotch Theory

Once upon a time there were a bunch of freely floating, and harmoniously existing interior designers. They all peacefully existed in their own realms of creative space, never crossing paths. Then one day they were all put together in a big Red Box. Their creative energies reacted fiercely causing a humungus unaesthetic explosion. And thus was born this Hotch Potch Bloth.

Once upon a time there were a few chefs, each with his own set of knives, his own pots'n'pans, and his own lil' kitchen , each in a separate land. They all cooked on unaware of flavours but their own. Suddenly one day they were put in a Red Box. Their pots exchanged, their pallate's tainted and and thus was born this Hotch Potch Blotch.

The resultand red box is unappealing to both the eye and the tongue, and it burns a hole in your pocket while damaging these senses.

Facts :
- The Menu is very mixed, can be confusing to order
- The portions are extremely small for the cost
- Music is garrishly loud ( even on a sunday morning )
- Staff can't hear the customers thanks to loud music

Damages Rs. 500 / head for
2 starters, 3 maincourse items and 3nonalchoholic beverages
Doesn't sound much, but trust me when i say the portions are so small u feel cheated.

Worst place to dine out

By seeing tempting red color cafe for last years, atlast i been to this place a month back for dinner. Compltely disappointed..quality was food was so pathetic that we couldn't eat 20% of our entire ordered food..and the music was so loud that you can't even talk/listen anything.. even more louder than disc floor.. Some good points, price was quite reasonable, crowd was ok-ok..Overall not a bad place at all but loud music and poor quality of food is killing this place.

Below average...

I've been to the bandra red box n number of times and I always expected the Andheri one to be equally good. But unfortunately I guess I expected too much. As soon as I entered, I was kinda put off with the ambiance. There was something missing. The music was average and the food was also not upto the mark. The nachos at the Bandra Red Box are simply delicious but here they were soggy and of lesser quantity.

I don't know if I'd ever go back here!

What to say about this place? I like this place for good music and also good food. But they do not maintain their quality and taste of the food and the music is also too loud. Since it is a restaurant the music should'nt be too loud as the crwod coming in are all mixed like families, friends etc....
I had been there on Valentines's day and it was too crwoded which was obvious and fortunately we got the table fast.
I enjoed the music but the food it was bakwas since i had too send back the rissoto as it was horrrible and the staff is really ok though they changed the rissoto. But..... such restaurants or places need to improve and matain their standards.
Atleast I would not prefer going on festivals to these restaurants.

Great place for a Saturday night!

Had been to red box a couple of weeks back and it is a great place to be.Mind it, it was a saturday night so you are bound to expect some waiting period before you get your table.But once your in then itz a different experience cause the ambience and the interiors are amazing!!The starters rock!!...Especially the fish fingers.Booze is not too expensive.150 bucks for a small peg of vodka and 150 for a large beer which is not bad!!...Dont order too many starters like how we did cause then there is no room for the main course.Though we ordered some main course which was again good but the starters stole the show.Service was excellent.You dont have to call for the waiters to fill your glass and they dont ignore you when you call for them.Music is mostly bollywood and punjabi numbers.Can be a mix of english n hindi numbers cause not everyone is into bollywood music.The table can cause a little inconvinience as it is actually meant for 2 but they accomodate 3 people especially when you've ordered too many starters plus your booze glass plus ur plate.I think they can accomodate 3 people on a table for 4 rather than a table for 2.

Total came upto 1600 bucks(Food+booze)....Not bad!!

PS-Waiting period can be long...cause itz a saturday night....Be patient cause what's outside can be frustrating(that's the waiting)...but what's inside is mindblowing!!!

Good ambience, bad food

Good things first. The ambiance is good and the colors are matching the name theme. The crowd however is a mix of family people and friendship bunches, so that's kindda nice too.

As far as food is concerned, my bad experiences continue. The food is not authentic at all. I do not know why such a fine restaurant fails to live upto the expectations of tastebuds of all three of us. One thing is for sure, rarely are there restaurants who do really customized cooking. This one is no exception. They have same curry (full of oil and cheese) that they will use in all their dishes. Only the core would sometimes be potato, sometimes veggies, sometimes cottage cheese .. horrible.

Having a unified curry is good from efficiency point of view but please do not go to this place if you want authentic food. You will certainly be disappointed. Folks, please stop going there just because you see many people sitting there.

Best Ambience, Music & Food

I love this cafe ever since it opened up in Bandra. Their ambience was very classy with red all round specially the square plates which were red too.

On the drinks, their Long Island Ice Tea is good and gets one drunk if you gulp down 2 of those.

Prices are reasonable.

The food here is too good specially for starters the barbeque paneer. For the main course one has to have Cannelloni which is the best I have ever had. They sizzlers are worth a try too. The pizaas and pastas are also nice and sumptuous.

On the whole, a very nice place to hang out anytime of the day or night. Cheers!!!

Been here a few times...

I've read the other reviews to this place and I think one thing is quite apparent, not only from the reviews but from personal experience as well.

If you want to have a good time and remember this place fondly, go early on the weeknights, or at lunch any time during the week.

If you want to think of this place as one you would never want to come back to then visit it at Saturday night... I would thoroughly appreciate not being subtly (although thats not exactly what it was...bill on the table before we asked for it) asked to leave no matter how many people are waiting outside, as long as my behavior and that of my companions are within acceptable norms...

Either way, the food is nice, and well priced. The service can vary from being completely unobtrusive, to standing on your head so that you catch the hint... Its not that I mind being asked to, "..move along now...", and I have been, but that was in places where I expect such a situation (udipi's etc.), so if these guys could come up with a streamlined reservation system wherein you were assured you were not necessarily going to need to wait too long for a table and also not pressured while inside, to vacate your table.

The food here is better than most places, comfortably priced as well, and the ambience is generally good (except for those non-smokers). But there are other places nereby that offer just as good food, with similar ambience, and equally as reasonable pricing, and where you are NOT made to feel pressured to vacate your table...

Hope these folks get it together for their weekend services, it'd do much better for it as a restaurant.

Word-of-mouth power is amazing, which is why this site is amazing... Proprietor's beware...

Hello

- I have to agree, its a good place to get friends, and family

- Try cold coffee
- Try prawn butter garlic (ask for less garlic, less black pepper)
- Try Fish Harsha
- Try the Griller Fish (not a sizzler )(ask less pepper, ask for mash potato with cheese instead of fries)
- Try any sizzler (ask for extra sauce, upfront)

Con's
- TOOO smoky "cigarette smoke"
- Servers, / waiters, need to upgrade here, wont do with the typical Udipi style servers

Restaurant or Gas Chamber?

WTF!? This place was full of more smoke than a Chinese coal plant. What's the deal with everyone smoking inside a family-friendly restaurant? Yeah, second hand smoke is great for your little fat kids lungs. It's not enough that he looks like a bucket of lard at 4 years old; nah! Let's blow smoke in his face!

Happened here after our terrible experience at Myst (read my review) to continue our night of drinking. Upon learning that we were only in the restaurant to swig a few, the manager promptly starts to put the pressure on us by just standing at our table, waiting for us to order more drinks as we casually sip away. What a f*cking baboon. More so, he tells us at 12:30AM that it's "last call" at the bar. Are you kidding me? 25 minutes later, we see him serve beers to a table full of goras. I can stand some bad service here and there, but a gora-ass kissing manager is all it takes for me to walk right out, which is exactly what we did. I give them a few stars because the music of the place was decent, and the crowd looked fine (although their lungs probably look like shriveled up tree bark).

Not going back here either...my quest is still on for the perfect Lokhandwala/Oshirwara/Andheri (W) watering hole...follow me to freedom, people!

Cute place with a tasty menu

As a non-veg, I appreciate a nice big menu of meat and chicken. So, this place gets big marks for that.

And also the ambience is fun, the crowd is generally mid sized (I haven't been there on a weekend yet). We usually end up spending a few hours there, drinking, snacking and smoking. Which is basically my 2nd favorite hobby, following "sleeping in front of the television".

I have never had problems with the waiters or service, but again, maybe you need to go during the weekend to have service problems.

Yum, I want to go there right now and eat some chicken-ey goodness.

Awful Service

Well , there are only a few places in mumbai where i've been for a dinner or lunch. but one thing is for sure. i'm not visiting red box cafe again. the waiters really made me mad, when they asked me to leave as their restaurant was getting over-crowded and people were waiting outside for tables. actually they did not ask me to leave, but gave us the cheque without being asked for it (which in restaurant parlance means , please leave, we are interested in serving you anymore). when i asked the waiter, he bluntly said, sir, a lot of people are waiting outside.

it's another matter altogether , that had he not brought the cheque, i would''ve asked for it. but then again that's not the point here. we were in the company of women, so i do not think we were being obscene. they was no kissing, smooching, petting on anyone of our part. so i guess it must be just the restaurant.

anyways the reason i gave it 2 starts (instead of 1) is that food was nice. we did order a couple of dishes and they all turned out to be really tasty. it's been two-three months now since i went there, and now i do not remember the names of those dishes. one was beef corn something though.

Nice joint

If you want to catch with a buddy on a lazy afternoon then this is the place to head out. Incidentally this entire stretch of the Andheri Link Road has several restaurants cheek by jowl, and all serving varied cuisines.
The ambience is good and you can really unwind. The servers are non intrusive and dont hang around your table prompting you to place your order.
The sauteed mushrooms were yummy with loads of freshly ground black pepper. And the salad had crispy red cabbage and the balsamic vinegar made it pungent without really attacking your taste buds.
I ordered for something which had mushroom gravy served on a bed of rice and some mashed potatoes. The quantity was not great at all.
Sadly, for a cafe this place does not have anything beyond cappuchino.
I loved the glass bubbles strung in rows on the windows.
Good place, good food and does not really pinch your wallet too much

Step up for Andheri

Not bad for Andheri, which needs more places like this. Ambiance is a bit confusing, although they are trying to go for old school diner-chic. Would be a good place to congregate with friends over drinks in the corner-located bar, but this place was oddly populated with a few families with young children late on a Wednesday night. My waiter disappeared mid-speech while I was giving my order for no apparent reason and that made me pretty angry. I let it go, and the service for the rest of the night was palatable.

Food was decent. Ordered some mushroom soup, which had to have been packaged Maggi (not that it's bad); hummus, which was the winner of the night; and penne contadina. The pasta sauce was a bit too sweet and spicy. That made hard to enjoy. All in all, Andheri gives a good effort, but some work can be put into this place to make it better.

gr8 place... minus the loud music

Went here on a saturday night for dinner n was pretty lively....ambience is red n lively,... guess it was happy hours so the music was a bit too loud.. Food here was awesome n so was the service. we picked to have italian evn though they do serve chinese here as well..called for nachos.. the tortilla chips seemed to b a lil saugy but the baked beans, cheese n salsa dip made up for them. Ordered for the Farm something pizza... was basic veg pizza but the crust was just rite. N lastly Al Pesto pasta..wid white sauce n herbs was extremely delicious n filling...Casual place to be i wud say... Am surely gonna visit dis one more often...
