My wife and I were here yesterday Aug 19 2012. For those of you who are familiar with Nungambakkam eateries, this place used to be the Movenpick ice cream parlour. The ambience was bright and airy with lots of tables and decor in earth tones. We entered at around 7.30PM when the place wasn't crowded and were seated on the sofa with out backs to the large windows. The staff were numerous and friendly with prompt service. But no two ways about it - we were disappointed with the food.
Golden Honey Strips - Like the KFC boneless chicken strips except these did not have the distinctive KFC flavour and were bland.
Buffalo wings - Not "Buffalo" by far, these were small wings and were too spicy - we think that they had just lopped on a lot of that spicy sauce.
Fish n Chips - This was OK, a bit bland and oily, served with tartar sauce and french fries. Not your traditional fisn n chips; more of a "fritters" kind of batter was used here.
Lamb burger - Utterly disappointing. I was expecting a large burger for the price but what I was served was not large at all. The buns were oddly shaped with the base being cylindrical in form about 3/4 inch in height and the top like a small cone - very odd size difference between the base and the top. And the bun was hard! I could not eat the base and had to just have the small lamb patty. There were only a few veggies on it as well; all in all not upto the mark by far.
Waffle with ice cream - This was presented well on the plate with maple syrup and a wafer stick. However the waffle was disastrous; it was hard and not fresh. I had to cut it with a knife! We just abandoned the waffle after a few bites and ate the chocolate ice cream.
Mojito (mocktail) - This was good, with fresh lime and cucumber.
Iced Mocha - Bitter was the first taste I got. After mixing a little the taste improved but everytime I tried to suck with the straw it would get blocked by ice chips. Ultimately I let the ice melt and then could not drink it anymore as it tasted watery, so I just left it.
BBQ needs to improve the food. Everything else - location, ambience, decor and service are good but the food is below par and needs to be improved a lot.
