Dinner at Chulha Chauki da Dhaba – Restaurant Review



Had heard some good things about this place, so we decided to dine at Chulha Chauki da Dhaba last night & here’s my review:


Ambiance : Very interesting with a proper Dhaba setup in the busy town area of JP Nagar.

Rating : 4/5.

Service : Swift & prompt service by the Staff, Once we placed our order, within 10 minutes, food was served to us. Extremely surprising to get such a quick service on a busy weekend night.

Rating : 5/5

Food : So, we did some quick search on Zomato & FourSquare to find out at the Must-try items. And, were happy that we did that as those dishes turned out to be really delicious.

We ordered – Chicken Sawariya Kebab for Starters, Chicken Handi & Chicken Lahsuni, Phulkas, Garlic Naan, Plain Naan, Vegetarian Pulav & Lassi.

Had read several recommendations for Chicken Sawariya Kebab & Garlic Naan & glad we ordered it coz it was totally a delicious affair. Will recommend others also to go for it.

Chicken Handi & Chicken Lahsuni were alright but did not have a very distinguished taste as I expected after tasting the starter item. Veg Pulav was very tasty & had that piquant flavour of saffron.

Serving Portions were small for the Gravy items – some room for improvement.

Rating : 3/5

Price : Reasonably Priced, Easy on the pocket!

Waiting Time : Anywhere between 30-40 minutes as this place is very busy.

Amenities : Car Parking Space, Waiting Benches.

Overall Rating : 3.5/5

This deserves a second visit, definitely!


Lunch at Chili’s – Restaurant Review

On this long weekend, we had planned to chill & relax and thus stepped out in the late hours of Friday afternoon to grab a quick bite/ late lunch.

We were headed towards Indiranagar & were passing around this quiet place which looked very appealing, calling out to the foodie inside me with open arms. So we instantly made our decision and stepped inside Chili’s

It looked like a small place from outside but is huge with 2 floors & big LCD screens for entertainment. We requested for a table on 2nd floor and were immediately attended by the staff. Quite courteous. Place was not crowded & very clean and hygienic.

Here’s my review based on my experience :

Ambience : cozy & quiet

Service : Quick

Serving Time : 20 minutes after placing the order

Cuisine :American, Mexican & Tex-Mex

Our Order : Cajun Pasta in Alfredo sauce & Margarita Grilled Chicken

Taste description :

Cajun Pasta

Cajun Pasta

Cajun pasta – Penne pasta served with a hint of cajun spice, fresh tomatoes in Alfredo sauce along with a single piece of Garlic bread. One can request to add veggies also. There was no option of choosing between the pasta type. Penne was the only type available. Pasta was well cooked, cajun spice powder accentuated the taste of this dish.

Rating : 3 out of 5
