lackadaisical demeanour - a precursor to downfall?

The midnight buffet at the bayview, marine plaza is pretty well known, particularly to those who do not believe in the adage which prompts a light dinner for better health and some such talk......

We entered right at the time they were setting up the buffet so they may be excused for the rush around the place considering that the serving area is well-embedded right in the centre of the seating arrangement...well, there's also a seating area in a separate room away from the serving area, but then its a tad too far!...But they surely cannot be excused for the happenings that ensued later on in relation to lack of promptness of service which should be befitting a star-rated hotel!!!.....it took me to request the services of 2 waiters, a captain as well as the maitre d' just to set up the table with the requisite cutlery...phew!...that was some asking arnd to do [:)].....similar hostile intentions were remarkably visible with the stingy-ness of serving regular cooled drinking water (waiters shud seriously take a cue from a shetty-owned restaurant)....

As a thumb rule, i have empirically derived this habit or rather inclination, to base my judgement on a restaurant sheerly on its promptness of serving water. I believe thats the least that they can do to establish a rapport and to prove their customer-service!

The buffet was not exactly minimalist to say....it comprised veg sandwich, chicken sandwich, cheese sandwich, chatni sandwich, veg/non-veg soup, an array of okay-ish salads (chick-peas, cabbage, chicken sausage and olives, ham).

The main course comprised a spread of grilled chicken gravy (which was delectable with tender chicken pieces, whole huge juicy mushrooms, capsicum, tomato, onion in a red gravy), fish curry, chicken biryani in the non-veg section.

The section which i did not care to venture on i.e. the vegetarian section included paneer pasanda, dal fry, mix vegetable, steam rice....and also a red-sauce based pasta which looked so very dry....

The deserts included some cakes, a mint souffle, and chocolate mousse (this one is worth mentioning amongst the rest).

With Rs. 400/- a piece inc. taxes, this place still deserves a 3 star rating, primarily because of its laid back sea-facing ambience, and a decent variety of food post Cinderella-curfew!

Do they even taste what they serving?

Im assuming this restaurant is finding sugar too expensive to afford? Then why are their sweets not sweet? We decided to go for their mid night buffet...Horrendous is not the word! The Mutton in the mutton gravy was on the verge of rotting, quality of the food and variety both were not upto the mark. Clearly it was a mid crap buffet.
No Ice cream :O Its summers and so its by default the first dessert one must have also the caramel custard clearly had no caramel...like i said they may be found sugar too expensive to add in their buffet items...and was more like PAV soaked in water..
PS: i liked the green tea.

Hope to have a better experience if at all i decide to come back.
