Delhi's chic restaraunt now in Bombay!

The Very New York Deli white interiors and some great food.
Even the minimalist can enjoy a good healthy soup and half salad combos!

There sandwiches are really good and they also do offer to customize them to your liking or if your with your kids to their taste!

One area of improvement is definitely there deserts!

A good overall ambience for a heap dining experience!

Amazing Food, But Know What You're Ordering!

This was my first time there and I was totally clueless as to what to order. So between two people we ordered two starters, two main course and two desserts. Starters- Smoked Carrot and Ginger Vichyssoise , which is basically carrot soup. Its lovely, but I guess it takes time to get used to the bitter after taste. What I loved was the breads and butters they serve the soup with. Loved the beetroot butter! The second starter was The Greek Salad, as the name says it is served in an ancient looking stone bowl and lots of leaves in it! It tastes really good, the cottage cheese does wonders. But quantity of both starters was too much, could finish only half of each and were half stomach full.
For main course we had ordered the Green pea and Cottage Cheese Burger and "Mac n cheese" , the burger was HUGE and accompanied with fries and salad, it took two of us to finish it, and we had to ask them to pack the Mac N Cheese to take away.

For dessert we ordered 2 "Creme Brulee Of the Day" , it was basically a pudding with a caramel topping and was lovely! We could finish only one and asked them to parcel the other, but they said it couldn't be parceled, so we were like, let it be then. It was so sweet of them to replace it with a chocolate pastry and give that as a takeaway.

Oh and did I tell you the interiors are lovely and they also sell stuff like breads, muffins, etc.

Good treat for a birthday!

So this year I wanted to try some place I had never been and so Smoke house grill came on to the list.
A friend and I were going to go. My friend reached before I did and asked to arrange a special b'day treat. It was their Flour-less chocolate fudge. Amazing!
And what's more they did not include it in the bill. Their treat!!
We had the Tomato Mascarpone Risotto. Decadent. I had the Cherry and cinnamon tea infusion. Again superb.
The service was great!
All in all we had a great time and will definitely head back there sometime soon!

Excellent experience

We went there on a Monday with friends, the place was packed. We had to wait for 40 minutes to get a table. But it was worth the wait. The food was simply superb. The decor is very unique and the walls n coasters had interesting sketches. Our waiter was really helpful. He suggested a few dishes that we should try out n described them very well. We ordered the Sea food risotto, lamb shanks, pork tenderloin, grilled chicken..and simply loved it. We ordered the flourless chocolate cake for dessert which was delicious. Ordered another one! :)
Highly recommend this place.

MMMmmmazing!

Great place, lovely lovely white interiors with quirky stuff on the walls and shelves. Great service, and extremely innovative dishes. Love the tenderloin bites (it's like a gourmet non-veg sev puri) and the pastas are divine. Portions are more than generous, never manage to finish a serving. The only downside? difficult to get a table at lunchtime on a weekday.

Nice Ambiance, Food was "meh"

I wasn't particularly impressed by the food as much as I was with the ambiance. It's situated in the Phoenix Mills Mall, and there is a lot of movement outside the restaurant. However, once inside, the monochromatic decor is an interesting surprise. I really liked how they did the place up. The annoying part about Smoke House Deli is that it is hard to get a reservation, and often times if you show up sans reservation, then there is a long wait. However, the brunch menu was interesting, although I would personally go here for the ambiance and be paying for the ambiance. In terms of food, I could make some of the items they have listed at home and be happy with it!

Perfect!

My Husband and I are regulars at Smoke House Deli. We love it so much that since last year all birthdays and anniversaries are celebrated at Smoke House.
The Caprese Mushrooms, Peri Peri Chicken and Lamb Shanks are ALWAYS perfect. Their consistency and combination of flavours is remarkable!
Not just their food but their cocktails are also fabulous! The smoked melon martini is exquisitie.
The Philly Cheesecake is divine.
I must complement their super friendly and non pushy staff make great recomendations.
It is my absolute favourite restaunrant.

Smoke House Deli is a cool joint.

Pals and I come here quite often. My favourite is their mac n cheese, smoked pimento sandwich and the vegan burger . The ideal end to my evening is brought about by the delicately flavoured expresso`n` the creme brulee. Love the generous use of white colour in the decor, gives a nice bright look to the cafe..

Mean Steak

No matter whatever I write about the Tenderloin Steak that I had here, I won't be able to put it into words what joy I felt as I took a bite of the steak.

I usually avoid steaks, since I can never decide how I would want the steak to be done, but this one time I decided to go ahead and I wasn't disappointed. Not at all.

Verdict - I finished the vegetables too which accompanied the steak, considering how I am strictly non-vegetarian (yes, that IS a thing). So good.

One of my best Lunch experences

I do not get impressed easily as far as restuarants go, but when I do, it always lingers in my mind, making me wanna go back to the place!! Smoke House Deli was one such experience. The ambience, the caricatured/sketched walls, the simplicity and contemporariness was perfect! The food was delicious, good portion size...My friend and I had the Pan charred veggies sandwich, the tomato cream fettucine, the cucumber-mint cooler and the melon cooler...Everything was fresh and full of flavour. The staff knew their menu, were prompt and extremely courteous. We were seated on a table of four, when half way to the meal, the manager very politely asked us if we were ok with shifting to a table for two since there were guests waiting. We were totally cool with it, and jus for that he asked us to have dessert on the house!! :):) Even though we were stuffed with the awesome food, we had the most amazing flourless chocolate fudge....yummmyyy...

We had such a great time...Im looking forward to going back and trying the non-veg options now...

Loved the tenderloin steak

Enjoyed their juicy tenderloin steak (house special), the white 'illustrated' interiors with burgundy tables, and friendly service. Definitely worth a visit for all who enjoy continental cuisine. Meal for two is around Rs.2,000/- (without alcohol). Go for it!

What a treat!

So I and my husband share our birthdays - and we just had a baby - so this was our first "date" in ages and we wanted to go somewhere special and splurge - we picked Smoke House Deli as a friend had been here and the place looked awesome - we were so not disappointed!!

You enter the place and it just takes your breath away - black and white interiors - very spaced out and the decor is beautiful.

We went there for lunch - ordered Crispy Panco strips - which were nice but would have preferred it to be a bit more spicy.

Ordered the Seafood risotto and the Lamb shanks which were so good! The risotto was creamy and the shanks melted in your mouth - never had anything like this before.

The desert was on the house thanks to our birthdays :) The flourless chocolate fudge - again a melt in the mouth dish and worth every bite!

The service was impeccable as our server knew everything on the menu and the maitre de was kind enough to keep checking on us!

Overall a wonderful experience - a little heavy on one's pocket but totally worth it!

Cibo Fantastico ...

Smoke House Deli comes from a good pedigree and doesn’t disappoint. Skeptical at first, the whole experience was a sheer delight – in every aspect. A beautifully done up restaurant in Black & White theme, it’s ‘different’ and inviting... Perfect & attentive service, an excellent host (the Duty Manager) who personally got us to enroll in their loyalty program (the first I have come across), a decent selection of wines and most important – amazing food - in the middle of a busy mall, you have a winner !!

We ordered a Sangria and Riesling to start with the latter available in glass, a delight compared to other stand-alone restaurants who offer only the local Sauvignon & Chenin Blanc varieties. We had a movie to catch at the nearby PVR, so were hard pressed for time and no possibility of an antipasti. The bread basket (or should I say an innovative brown sack) came without prompting and a nice variety of warm breads in it. For main course we ordered Pasta and Smoked Lamb Shank … I am not sure whether it was on account of us rushing them or a screw up, the pasta came in well before the lamb and my wife kept cribbing about eating ‘alone’. We forgot all that once the dish came in after a wait of about 20 mins. By far, it was one of the slow cooked lamb dish I have had in ages and boy, did I forget about the movie. Perfectly cooked, with the meat falling off the bones in an amazing tasty sauce … every bit was consumed with the respect it deserved. Served with vegetables, I could not resist dipping my bread into the sauce and finishing off the entire plate.

We will definitely be back, with enough time in our hand to try out the other dishes and the lamb again. Deserts were average with the cheese cake disappointing a little. Would highly recommend the place to all …

Ciao !

Likeable (but short of 'Great')

I visited Smokehouse Deli for weekend lunch with a few relatives.

Service: 5/5 (because of a specific incident)
Ambience: 4/5
Food (Taste): 3.5/5
Portion size: 3/5
Plating: 4/5
VFM: 3.5/5

Reached there around 3ish and were told that we have a 15-minute wait, and then the courteous maitre d' returned to tell us that we'd actually be seated in less than 5. Great! Under-promise and over-deliver works for me.

We got seated at a corner table and looked around. The design is very innovative, and it works. They've painted everything white and then let some reasonably skilled kids do their thing with black Sharpies. The white gives the place a feeling of space. It's not a very large restaurant, but they've taken care to space out the tables so each table gets reasonable privacy. That's good too.

Service -- Top marks for service, especially because of something that happened. They give you this 'brown batuwa (sack)' filled with assorted bread + butter + other aioli. My family loved the breads, especially the small sesame topped buns, and we asked for a repeat. They got us some more bread. My fam loved em so much we asked the waiter if we could buy some from them to take home. He replied that they didn't sell the bread but he said he could pack some for us. And he did. That is a touch one doesn't see in Indian restaurants, and yet, that is the touch that makes winners and retains regular customers!

Food -- This is the part that is Good but short of Great.
They serve water in carafes that contain slices of orange and mint sprigs. However, the flavor didn't carry through to the water. Those things need to be changed often.
For appetizers we got the seafood fritters (good but not great; the aioli was missing a 'hit' factor) and the chicken satay (ummm, good). For any appetizer, the aioli needs to be distinctive. SHD misses on that count. For benchmark, try the beer batter fried veggies at Indigo Deli. They give you three aiolis to go with that. One word for em - STELLAR.

For the mains, we ordered the seafood risotto (though, it appears, the mushroom risotto is more popular; I'd still go with the seafood one), and the penne pasta (one of my relatives wanted it; I never order pasta). The smoked lamb shanks and the rawas looked more inviting. Unfortunately, we wanted to avoid feeling stuffed and let them pass.
The seafood risotto is very good but falls short of stellar or Great or Incredible. The prawn, rawas chunks, and calamari in it are tasty but the actual rice (the arborio) falls short. I believe they need to source better quality rice. And I'd suggest two drops of truffle oil to make it Fit for Gods.
The penne pasta, well, it was as good or as bad as a pasta can be. I've never been a penne guy, so...
Portions - For the price, I think the portions should be larger. How much larger? 10-15% more?
They do a good job with plating. Loved their choice of plates to serve the food in. The balsamic vinegar + sugar reduction was also well done.
VFM -- The total tab came out to ~2300 (including tax + 10% service charge aka tip). At 800 bucks a head in Mumbai, that's reasonable VFM.

Will I go back again? Yes, to try the Rawas and the Lamb Shanks. Hear their burger and steak are good too!

A great place for coffee or a meal

I've visited Smokehouse a couple of times - sometimes for a cup of coffee and cheesecake, other times lunch or dinner and its always been good. The ambience too is ideal and the staff does not rush you to order. On my last visit, I tried the Tangerine Mojito which was really good. We also ordered a Peri Peri chicken starter and a cheese jalapeno toast. The John Dory main course was particularly done well and even the Ravioli didn't disappoint. We had a Philly cheesecake for dessert and for some reason they warmed it which changed the texture. But the staff did replace it with a cold one when we complained with no extra charge.

Smoking good

The closer the place, the more difficult to make time is my belief. Had been meaning to visit this place immediately after it opened, but just could not make time. Then a colleague’s birthday came up and it was unanimously decided to try out Smoke house deli.

We were lucky to get bookings on a Saturday afternoon, given the fact that it is always crowded. The first impression on entry just knocks you out. A wonderful ambiance, with murals on the walls, antique look and a huge desert shelf facing you.

Since there were 10 of us, with equal vegetarian and non vegetarians, we managed to try substantial amount from the menu.

We tried the mushroom soup as well as a chicken soup, which was nice and just right accompanied by the bread basket, which they refilled without being asked to.

The sandwiches and risotto for the vegetarians was good, whilst the Basa in a couple of different forms hit just the spot. Those who tried the tenderloin were quite impressed. Then came the clincher. The desserts - enough said - all the four including mud pie were sinful and to die for.

This is one place that I need to visit a couple of times before I am satiated, having tried most of the menu.
