Hello everyone! Well first things first, please spare me if my writing is not good enough. Hopefully it shall improve with time. It’s the very first time am writing a blog, always thought I should start one but that thought lasted for not more than 4- 5 days and before I knew it my mind had diverted to something else. Before I get on to my very first review which am super excited to share with all of you, let me tell everybody once and for all, I do eat..A LOT! And am mentioning this because of the mere reason that every time I visit any family function or a group of new people am asked 'tamanna, aap kuch khati nahi ho?' and am sick of answering that question over and over again. I think my good metabolism rate does the trick for me. However am very thankful to all those people who constantly annoyed me with that question since because of them I was very sure about my blog title J

Now yes here goes my very first review on GRILLOPOLIS - Andheri

So Grillopolis located at Morya Landmark 1, New Link Road, Opposite Infiniti Mall, Andheri (W) was visited by me with a friend for their buffet lunch, we entered the place around 2.30 so we had only an hour to spend there, since the buffet shuts at 3.30. Firstly would love to tell you all about their grand entrance, it feels more like you are entering a palace, because of the huge classy door. And then you enter the place and immediately fall in love with the cozy ambience.

The buffet is a lavish spread of a mixture of various cuisines such as Italian, Lebanese, Mediterranean and Indian. And since we were really hungry we first hit the buffet to get ourselves salad which I must say were absolutely yummy! There were 3 types of Salads, Pineapple Grilled Chicken, Prawn Salad and Egg Mayonnaise Salad. I did not try the egg salad however, but the other two were superb. After that we were served pita bread with hummus which reminded me of Abu Dhabi J and then we were served the starters which included Lebanese Grilled Chicken which was very tender and amazing in taste. Then came the Chicken Seekh Kebab and BBQ Chicken which did not disappoint me either. After this came the most shocking part of my visit here, the vegetarian starters, and me being the complete non vegetarian that I am wasn’t very sure of giving it a try but then I made the best decision ever by saying yes, both the starters I tried were absolutely delicious. One was stuffed potato with cheddar which was brilliant and the other was Paneer (Cottage Cheese) which was very soft and tasty! There was also Veg Seekh Kebab which I did not try.

Then once we were done there was an option of soup which I gave a miss, and moved straight to the main course. And usually places that specialize for their buffet do an awesome job with their starters but fall short on their main course but we were amazed with the brilliant main course. There was Mutton Biryani, Butter Chicken, Paneer Jalfrezi, Basic Yellow Dal and some Mutton Gravy. The Butter chicken and Paneer jalfrezi were really good and we could order for our choice of bread to accompany it, which was served to us on our table. My friend tried the mutton gravy which he said was really bad, so I didn't bother trying it out. Then there was Italian Saute and Potato Crunchers, both the dishes were average. And also butter crab which was also pretty good.

By then I was pretty full but had a little space left for the desserts, they had a choice of Chocolate Pastry, Orange Pastry and Strawberry Mousse. I tried all three but was disappointed with the chocolate pastry which was very hard to eat and the orange pastry which tasted awful. The Strawberry Mousse however wasn't too bad. They could have done a better job with the desserts.

So yes with that comes an end to my Grillopolis review, I would conclude by saying that overall it was a brilliant experience and a total value for money, its 450/ person (Tax Excluded) which I think is awesome and am looking forward to visit again.

Lastly the place wasn't absolutely full, but had quite a lot of people for lunch on a weekday and from what I have heard from people its full at most times, so it would make sense to make a booking there to avoid waiting and wasting time. Call them on 022 64559900, 022 64569900, +91 9223209555 to make a booking.

Suggestion to Grillopolis – Increase the variety in Desserts and also have an option for juice or something to sip on along with the buffet.
