you go in, have good food, come out and within 30 minutes, you forget what you had! Happens with me all the time.
One of the better restaurants in churchgate area, especially for veggies. Any afternoon finds it over crowded and there is a minimum waiting period of 5 minutes everyday between 2 nd 3:30 nd 8:30 to 10:30-on sundays its worse.
Last sunday we waited (4 of us-family) for 45 minutes to get a seat at 9 pm night. (My mama was in town and wanted a not-so-exclusive place to have good indian food after a stroll at marine drive nd samrat nearby had 1 hour waiting time, so we came here). we ordered some mocktails, 1 paneer gravy dish, 1 veg kolhapuri, some naan and one paneer chilly dry as starter.
thereafter we had to wait another 25 minutes for the food to arrive!!! Service here clearly goes for a toss when it gets overcrowded! so beware. also we had specifically asked for the mocktails to arrive before main course but they gave us everything together after 25 minutes-that was horrible
This has happened earlier also, once i had gone with my mom nd we had both ordered dosas, the waiter simply forgot to write down my order, brought everything my mom ordered after 20 minutes and then wrote down what i had ordered-result, another 20 minutes of waiting for my dosa to arrive!!!-That was a saturday afternoon...
Apart from the service part, i can't find any fault with food. Since i spent 3 years at jai hind college nearby, this is the place we friends frequented a lot alongwith satkar and had pav bhaaji, dosas, chinese chowmein, crispy thread paneer, manchurian, paneer chilly, nachos, american corn balls, all kinds of indian naan and paneer gravies and everything tastes good-nothing extraordinary.
One thing I always order is watermelon cooler, simply love it.
so go here if you want good, reasonably priced food -just dont go with a special date or if you want to celebrate any special occassion with family-the ambience is comfortable but always crowdy and kinda noisy and not classy enough-and then there is the service part-choose relish or samrat for any special occassion-otherwise shiv sagar is really a good place to have good food :)
