The first thing that will catch your attention at this place is the beautifully sculptured artwork on the walls. It’s almost like Michelangelo came back to life to design it, its second to none and I could spend hours just admiring it.
Along with an amazing ambiance, the food here too is quite amazing. We began with the staffs recommended platter consisting of Bhatti ki Murg Tikka, Fish Chili, Beijing Chicken and Fish Tikka. It was an interesting blend of flavors and textures and I absolutely loved the seafood.
Impressed with the seafood, I decided to go for something more interesting and ordered their Tandoori Stuffed Pomfret, while the dish was delicious, it was quite challenging to eat it as it was not boneless and the lights were turned low by now.
So we decided to stick with finger food and ordered Buffalo Chicken Wings, Prawn Rawa Fry and Bacon wrapped Prawns. All of the dishes had a good flavor, the only downside was the that the bacon was a bit chewy.
Confused by the enormous menu, we decided to end our meal with something more exotic and went for the Tenderloin in Cumin and Black Pepper Sauce, and their Dragon Rolls (Sushi). While the beef was quite delicious, I didn’t quite like the flavor of the sushi.
For dessert we had a Tiramisu and Peanut Butter Cheesecake, both were decent, good but nothing extraordinary.
While we had mixed reviews about the food, the drinks here were spot on, the Cocktails we tried out were, Bourbon Wreckage Fluid, Fresh Fruit Pinacolada and Skeleton 3. The bourbon one being the best of the lot. We also had a couple of Mocktails like their Peanut Butter Shake and Minto Plus which were even better than the cocktails.
Overall I had a wonderful experience here, the staff was very polite and friendly. My only suggestion would be to shorten or rearrange the dishes on the menu as it was quite confusing going through 43 pages of it.
The Junkyard Cafe is definitely worth trying out!
