Summer House Cafe, Lower Parel

Summer House Cafe, just as the name suggests is like a rustic home away from home, where you can unwind and relax with friends. The ambiance inside is huge and beautifully designed. To make things better, they even had a live band performance on the night of my visit. Even the service was polite and friendly, the manger too was keen on explaining his dishes to us. Just Perfect!

To beat the summer heat, we began with a round of coolers and tried out the Watermelon Mint Smash and a Yuzu Pineapple Smash. While the watermelon was a bit too mild for my taste, the yuzu with its bitter-sweet and sour taste was spot on refreshing

For starters we tried out the Seafood Basket, Seafood Platter, Golden Fried Bacon Crisps, Char Grilled Tandoori Chicken and their staff recommended Bacon Wrapped Sausages. The Seafood Basket had Deep Fried Calamari Strips, Zesty Fish Fingers and Popcorn Shrimp, the shrimp being the best of the lot. The Seafood Platter had similar preparations but the shrimp was replaced with Cumin and Mint Fish Tikka.

Golden Fried Bacon Strips were deep fried strips of bacon that just crumble in your mouth, Sinfully Delicious! The Grilled Tandoori was quite nice too, huge chunks of Charred Spicy Chicken that goes well with a dash of Lime. The Bacon Wrapped Sausages was by far the best dish of the day, soft and tender with a delicious glaze of BBQ Sauce.

Almost stuffed with starters we went for a round of Smoked Ribs and Pan Seared Sole for our main course. The Ribs were heavenly, soft, tender and delicious. The Pan Seared Sole was even better, cooked in a delicious Butter Garlic Sauce and served alongside creamy Potato Mash and Sauteed Veggies. Strongly Recommended!

Dessert was nothing less than perfect either, we went for the Ultimate Banoffee Pie and their Tiramisu. While the Pie was quite heavy because of the rich toffee sauce, the Tiramisu was very light with a kick of Old Monk. A perfect end to a perfect night!

The Drinks we tried out here were Summer House LIIT, Made in the City, Pineapple Express and Rich Dog, all of them were quite nice but they could have been a little stronger as the flavors were diluted by the amount of ice in them.

Overall, Summer House Cafe is a treat for all your senses and a must visit place to just kick back and relax!
