Just Introduced: Bollywood Biistro, Punjabi Bagh
The two most important things for Indians are Cricket and Cinema. While the former surges up the adrenaline during a match between the rival neighbours, the latter is an integral part of every Indian’s DNA. Cashing on the second option, father-son duo Pradeep and Abhishek Vig have opened up a new restaurant in Punjabi Bagh – Bollywood Biistro.
As you enter the restaurant, you can spot references to popular Bollywood characters right from the 1970s to the present time. It is a heaven for cinema lovers as the walls of the restaurant adorns old film posters and life-size portraits of actors and also dialogues like ‘dhai kilo ka haath…’ and ‘mai apni favourite hun’
There is also a selfie station with the autographs of popular Bollywood stars. So, next time you visit here, don’t forget to click your selfie there.
The restaurant has an expansive menu and serves North Indian, Mughlai, Chinese and Continental cuisines satisfying varying tatse buds. Being a Bollywood-based bistro, we were expecting filmy names of the dishes. But to our surprise, they were named just loike in any other restaurant. But what impressed us the most was the presentation of the food.
Spring Rolls, the first dish on the table, came in quirky bicycle. The crispy spring rolls were juicy from inside and tasted heavenly. Then came Soya Chaap hanging on the skewers. It also tasted equally good. Their Baked Helmet Mushrooms was delicious and stood out to be the star dish for the evening. It was stuffed with spinach and was oozing out cheese. It is highly recommended, so don’t miss it. However, we didn’t like their Cheese Chilli Toast as they were bland as per our taste buds and lacked that authentic flavour. So you can skip it.
I opted for Pineapple Sunrise to wash down the taste of Cheese Chilli Toast. A refreshing blend of pineapple juice, lemon and soda, the mocktail will be a sure-shot hit amongst the people who have sweet tooth like us.
Moving to the mains, we opted for Pasta Primavera and Cottage Cheese Saslik Sizzler. Pasta Primavera was a great combination of pasta with veggies and white cheesy sauce. Cottage Cheese Saslik Sizzler was so flavourful that we had to opt for second serving.
Our happiness knew no bound when we were served Banoffee Pie for the desserts. It was the sweetest way to wind up our meal.
