Farm Fresh – Restaurant Review

Before I start out with the review, a small note that I was invited to try the food by the owner of Farm Fresh, Mr. Rashid.

So the owner of Farm Fresh, invited me to try out the food served by them and offered to deliver at my residence, but as my current residence was out of the delivery area, thus Mr. Rashid offered to deliver the food at my workplace which was very thoughtful of him.

Before I list down the items that I ordered, here’s a little background about this place, so Farm Fresh is not your typical restaurant. They have a very unique offering, they serve you food in two ways :

  1. Ready to Eat (Like normal restaurants)
  2. Ready to Cook (This can be grilled/fried/baked by you)

My food order consisted of both the items, I ordered :

Ready to Eat : Chicken Malai Seekh, Chicken Malai Tikka, Chicken Biryani & Chicken Schezwan Noodles.

Ready to Cook : Chicken Shami Kebab

Delivery Service : Swift & prompt service, the order was delivered at the expected time, neatly packed.

Rating : 5/5

Food : The food turned out to be really delicious.

I am an ardent fan of Seekh Kebabs and totally loved the Chicken Malai Seekh Kebab. Chicekn Malai Tikkas were also very juicy, soft and tasty.

Now coming to Chicken Shami Kebabs, since I had ordered it in the ready to cook form, instead of baking it, I shallow fried it in pan and to my surprise, it turned out perfectly well.

Here’s a before and after snap:

After tasting the starters, expectation with the main course had soared but I must say that I was a little disappointed with Chicken Biryani. It had very mild flavours and rice was sticky.

Chicken Schezwan Noodles was nice and spicy.

Rating : 4/5

Price : Reasonably Priced, Easy on the pocket!

 

Overall Rating : 4/5

Farm Fresh is a good solution when you have unannounced guests at your home and you wish to treat them to some juicy kebabs.
