If you're looking for a relatively cheap place for a quick drink with friends or colleagues, Sealord is one of the best options in Sobo. This glorified Indian Bar serves great food (Indian & Chinese) & gives enough freebies (chakna) with Drinks. Don't expect anything fancy, its just a sit down drinking place. The service can become lousy sometimes & the attitude sucks but nonetheless it's a decent convenient option.
We visit this place often and more often than not, to order a couple of drinks. The drinks come with a lot of free munchies (presumably unlimited!). I'm not much into cocktails but know that the long island ice tea here is potent from its effect I have seen.
Not sure of the veggie stuff, but chicken starters are good, (chinese & tandoor). For the main course stick to conventional moghlai/punjabi chicken dishes. Good place to throw a drinks treat for pals.
Avoid sizzling brownie and caramel custard for dessert.
Service has mostly been decent. Try and get conversational with the captain, a nice smiling chap. Only once was a waiter indifferent to delay in our order, but mostly have had a very good experience.
