Good Food, could be better!
Have been there several times, good food, good service and quality too. However, i always look forward to some change or replacement in menu to avoid eating the same dishes each time but fail to experience any.
Love the fried basa with Tarter and sesame fried prawns apart from the usual kebabs and tikka.
Always love the food!!
If you are a kabab fan, you can't miss this place.. they have a great buffet which start with 5 kind of kababs, if you are non-veg then you have advantage of enjoying veg kababs as well which make it 10 different kababs, Ambiance is great and service is fast as well. over all a nice place to spend your evening and enjoy good food
Very Poor Service
The food is ok. Dal Sigree is awesome, but the service is very very poor. The restaurant doesn't have enough staff. You need to wait at least for half an hour after you order. Even if you ask for water, they will serve you after a good 10-15 mins.
Irrespective of the taste of food, the service is very very poor.
Very good north indian buffet in new bombay
One of the best and authentic nort indian style buffet in Navi Mumbai, especially in Vashi area. I have been to this place for lunch as well as dinner for atleast 10 times since I stay nearby and it is very much worth . They change their menu regularly. Starters are actually slow cooked sigree style. I am basically non veg lover , still their Dahi tikka is something in veg worth not to be missed at all. Some other good ones are Azwani fish and Prawn dishes.
Forgot to mention earlier, they actually serve Shorba which if you know much different than typical creme of chicken soup and quite authentic in taste.
Main course, I always say, never ever miss specialty group's daal makhani. Biriyani is not exceptional like ghee filled kolkata biryani or hyderabadi dum styled, but still good.
But I generally avoid mutton(lamb) dishes except very few places like this who makes it authentic taste like in laal maas etc.
and in desert section they won't feel you with moose only, malpua or actual deep fried jalebis are there to relish with your taste buds.
Only wish they should come up with more prompt service when restaurant gets filled up. Also they might import some good starters from global grill like honey soaked chicken wings to bring in more varieties.
I have visited this place twice and On both the occasions I have opted for buffet. I must say that the buffet spread is really good and has a nice variety of delicacies. The starters are served at the table and the service is really slow. They take a long time refilling your plate and you have to keep reminding the waiters to bring your food. The main course is quite good though specially biryani! This place is usually crowded and you also have the option of checking in to Mainland China which is located next to it.
Best Hospitality in Navi Mumbai
As per the saying 1st impression is the last.....Absolute zeal n ecstacy wen i entered the place....Dinesh (Captain) helped me through d entire ordering.......mouthwatering starters......BEST PART.....while serving a prawn fell off d plate.....it was replaced with a fresh one within minutes n a complimentary fish tawa....please ask the captains they will recommend u good food i am sure about it.....Desserts were mouthwatering......after all v were again served with complimentary dessert.....FOOD n more FOOD.....n the best part it is pocket friendly.....would love to go there again n again........MARINATION is the imp part in case of non veg which was done very accurate...Thanxxx Sigree for a wonderful experience.
Go only if everywhere else is full
Another buffet place visit in Vashi and this time since Indian was the call, 'Sigree' was the answer. After waiting for one entire hour to get a table and NO, the so called welcome drink (half a glass of ice cold Fanta) did not do us any good. What did in fact, soothe our nerves was the tiny Sweet Bengal outlet where we hungrily relished the mishit doi.
Moving on, when we finally settled, the starters started pouring in. They were average and except the fish fingers and prawns we did not feel like repeating any item. The maincourse was also quite ordinary. None of the dishes were unique or anything you would look forward to eat. its as it even the taste was predictable.
Could be avoided as it is quite expensive for the food quality.
Rude waiters - food is ok.
We went to Sigree in Vashi on a Sunday afternoon couple of months back. A very noisy family of 20 ( 10 of them were kids ) sat on table next to us. Since they were making suck a huge ruckus we requested the waiters/manager to have our place changed. But they snapped back at us saying that there are no more tables available - although there were.. In fact we were the only 2 families at the place. Even if a few tables were reserved, surely there would have been atleast one table available. It was just 12.30. Anyway, when they started serving starters, we noticied that they do not serve some items on menu. One item in particular - seekh kabab - was not served at all inspite of repeated requests to waiter. Waiters were rude to us and the whole experience was bad. I went to the manager and complained about this, and he said we will take corrective action. What he did was he served seekh kabab but after we had finished our main course. Its no use now. Plus the seekh kabab smelled funny - literally smelled like shit. We didn't eat it. In between the kids from neighboring table creating such a noise and the very bad treatment from the Sigree staff, our whole afternoon was ruined. We couldn't get out of there fast enough. I dont think I will return to that place.
Sigree is one of the few Indian restaurants that I like to visit. The place is almost always packed. Weekdays they have the buffet and its priced fairly and weekends its impossible to get in without a reservation! So do keep that in mind. The service is quick and what I particularly like is it is one of those places in Vashi that serves authentic Indian food and does not have Indo-Chinese on the menu!! But they do have a Mainland China right next door to make up for it :P
They have a variety of dishes and a lot of unheard things as well. I didnt know you could be so adventurous with Indian Food to be honest! And they were a delight! We tried the Murgh Shorba which looked alright but tasted really good, the Mushroom Galouti kebab, the chicken Bhatti Kebab and a couple more , anmes of which I dont remember. Their kebabs were extremely soft and melt-in-your-mouth, Some of them a bit too soft for my liking. But overall, it was great. The fish prepared in mustard sauce is one of my favourite appetizers. Coming to the mains, the Biryani was so aromatic it had our mouth watering with just a whiff. I usually like a bit of gravy , so we ordered the Mutton Kosha which was VERY oily ( I guess thats how its made) but it had to be the BEST dish of the night. It was so delicious and rich! Sigh! It looked very dark almost like a black brown but it tasted so good! They even have an Olive Naan, which was quite different from what we usually have and was very flavourful. I didnt even get to the desserts thats how stuffed I was!
The good part about Sigree is, the head waiters are well versed with the menu and able to make recommendations based on your preferences. I would like to mention that once when I went to get a take away for a large group of people and was unable to decide, the host was gracious enough to lend me his time for a good 15-20 minutes and didnt seem to be in a hurry or even rush me into making a decision which I really appreciate.
The place tends to get a bit noisy but you cant help that. Its great for a family dinner or a celebration rather than a date night. Its a bit pricey a la carte but they do have a nice spread for their buffets which lasts all week which is priced appropriately. All in all, thumbs up for Sigree!
Old Indian styled cooking!
I have been eyeing this place for a long time and a sudden lunch outing with family brought me here. We reached Sigree around 2pm and were amazed to see the rush. We were told we would have to wait for half hour. Actually it was our fault that we didn't do reservations, but then thats how sudden plans are! We did some quick calls to other restaurants in the neighborhood to realize same is the state everywhere. So, we bravely decided to wait. And what a wait it was!
Its not easy to wait in a lobby that houses a Sweet Bengal counter with Bengali sweets like Mishti doi, Sondesh, Rosogulla, Labanga Latika and Ghee Samosa on display. To quieten our growling tummys we grabbed 2 pots of mishti doi. Good but not true to taste. It tasted more like shrikhand.
Finally, after a long wait, we were asked to proceed inside (tummy screaming yay all the way). Once we entered, we realized its as crowded inside as it was outside. Thankfully we got a corner table, slightly away from the noise. The interiors are nice and the place looks good. They have a glass wall on one side where you can see chefs cook up some delicious stuff. On the other side along the wall is the buffet counter lining up the days menu. You even have the option of à-la-carte.
We decided to go à-la-carte and started with our staple Masala Papad. You get 4 papads in one plate, just a heads up. Its the usual; however one extra topping that adds colour to the regular onion, tomato, coriander leaves and chaat masala is sprinkling of corn. Interesting, but frankly it didnt quite make a difference to the dish. One bowl of roasted papad with green chutney and pickled onions come in complimentary. We then called for Hariyali Paneer Tikka. It was finely cooked and evenly marinated with coriander and mint leaves, soft and tender, just the way I like. For main course, we called for Sabz Dum Handi and Dal Chaunka along with naans and kulchas. Sabz Dum Handi was a disappointment. Big vegetable pieces, dull flavour and lack of colour marred the dish. Dal Chaunka was basically chana dal cooked dal fry style. Quite okay!
Quantity was good enough. We didnt call for desserts since we started our meal with them. Remember Mishti doi in the lobby :P Service is good but a little slow, maybe because of the rush. Imagine people walked in even at 3.30pm for lunch. The staff is well-informed and courteous. Our server did make it a point to come and ask us if we had liked the food.
For a fine-dine, it is not over-the-top expensive. A meal for 4 cost us Rs 1150.
Visit this place and definitely have Hariyali Paneer Tikka.
Suggestion Dont go without a reservation, especially on weekends.
You need to make a reservation before you go here... otherwise be prepared to wait for a long time. In our case, the wait was worth it. The food was great and the ambiance was good. The restaurant was packed.
The food was delicious and was good value for money.
I would definitely eat here again.
Ambiance Good... Food "OK".. Service BAD.... .
went here today for a school reunion... we were 14 of us.. and we went for the buffet lunch... well.. started with couple of waiters serving and then they disappeared... on calling them THRICE they came and served us..then the main course.. options were very very less.. daal makhani, biryani was good... but we expected more options to choose from jst 3 veg and 3 non veg items, veg and non veg biryani and pastries well with a crowd of over 25 people, would you expect 10 pastries at a time? ;) and yes we took biryani and waiter told us to wait at the table for spoons.. no 1 responded... we called them 2ce and then got the spoons... well the bill for 14 was close to 6.5k which was worth.. but service was REALLY bad....! I am giving 3 star only for food and Ambiance...!
Onion Chilly Naan & Olive Chilli Naan are awesome!
20th July 2012 marked my 28th birthday and co-incidentally, my sister's as well. However, we're 8 years apart and 'what timing' is all we hear most of the time when people get to know we share birthdays. A dinner with the wife and family was called for and rushing back from work back to Vashi and Sigree was the obvious choice knowing that it's a new restaurant and have never been there
The restaurant is placed right next to Mainland China behind Raghuleela Mall, which is located right opposite the Vashi Railway Complex. You enter the foyer and a couple of pleasant ladies check if you have a reservation, to which we did not. She showed us the way to the elevator and we were off. The elevator exits at 2 gates, one for Mainland China on the left, and Sigree on the right. A couple of Chinese Teracota warrior idols separated the two entrances. You enter the place and you know you will burn a hole in your wallet. Nice and cosy interiors, slightly dark'ish for my liking, but was pretty well done up.
Just seated and all 5 of us got menu cards (which is not really the way how restaurants in Mumbai do it) and a couple of drinks menu. The captains and waiters kept changing and we ended up asking for stuff to every other waiter who was running around. Quite weird, but works for me as long as I get my service
Appetisers were Cheese Paneer Tikka and Babycorn Taktari. The paneer was unbelievably soft, but seems like the cheese was a little stale which left a weird after-taste in the mouth. The Babycorn on the other hand was brilliant, regardless of how retarded the dish sounds. Make sure you call for their mint chutney since the Tamarind Chutney and Pickle they serve is really not a good match. They served picked onions (as opposed to the vinegar'ised or sliced onions) and a couple of roasted papads. Main course was Hare Tamatar ka Paneer Makhni and Veg Handi. The Paneer Makhni was something I've never tried before. Green tomatoes gave a nice sour flavor, but was properly spiced and loved it. The Handi was really nothing much to write home about. The gravies there are quite rich and you will be full by the time you leave the place. For rotis, make sure you call for their Olive Chilli Naan and Multani Paratha (maida laccha paratha) and definitely the Onion Chilli Kulcha. Lapped up the rest of the food with their awesome Daal Makhni and I was set! To add a final touch, they also brought in a complimentary Chocolate Brownie with Butterscotch ice cream.
Ended up spending about 2000 bucks for a meal for 5 and it was quite worth it. The food turned out quite heavy and we were having trouble walking after the lovely dinner
Straight from Sigree
Sigree the name says it all CLAY OVEN. The taste so better if the food is served straight from the sigree.
The Vital Ingredient (FOOD) -
In a Soup - Being a corn lover we tried the Makai ka shorba... the soup was well flavoured the cumins were not burnt but properly roasted to give the soup a perfect roasted taste. But it could have been better if it was more flavourful i mean a lil more spice to the shorba.
Shud we start (Veg) - Ordering Multani chat for veg starters was not a good option as the potato was a lil raw. But the flavouring of dry ginger "saunth" were hitting the flavor buds tremendously. Also must try was the DilliWali Tikki a perfect starter...this starter depends if the yoghurt is fresh the it is just awesome.
We also tried the kurkuri Bhindi crispi fried bhindi ask for chat masala to add up the tangy flavour to the starter.
Just Start(Non Veg) - though I don't choose Sea food from any restaurant but tried it here. Nariyal Mirch Jhinga had more of a South Indian taste since the addition of coconut was the reason.
Dhuandar Lal Tikka - was the STAR of the Evening. The chicken was properly cooked in clay oven as the taste was of the INDIAN spices were retained to give it a perfect a STARTER.
The Dawaat - (Veg) - Paneer Tikka Lababdar was very good. It seemed the Paneer was chargrilled then added in the gravy. which again had the earthly taste.This was more than what I had expected.
The Dawaat 2 - (Non Veg) - Dahi Methi Murg was a blend of spices & yoghurt. The taste of fresh fenugreek lingers your mouth with the mild tangyness of yoghurt.This was below my expectation. I mean nothing extraordinary.
Roti Shoti - Try the Olive Chilli Naan..The olives are juicy n sharp taste with the spicyness of chilli makes a good combination. Also Lachha Paratha a good opttion.
Being an Indian Foodie the meal should end with Rice n Daal...so here it comes Dal Sigree & Khushka sofiyani(Jeera Rice) the delight to end the main course. Black Daal was nicely cooked was more of home style cooking.
The real lifter were the pickles n the masala onions which were served along with the dinner.
All that starts well Ends well Malpua with Rabri was extra toooo sweet than expected. The quantityof rabri was also less as compared to malpua. Apple jalebi was something new & it also tasted good the taste of apple was intact but again sweeter than expected.
Being in the Speciality Group there is no compromise on the price..Slightly over priced but that is overdone by the great food , good ambience & good service.
