Food Chants reviews Purani Dilli Ka Zaika at Copper Chimney, Mumbai

“…the chaat had to be tried. We ordered one and it was a little sweet (which is its natural taste) and was tossed in a tangy masala and had a very ghar-ka-khana kind of touch to it…”

“…the winner was tali machli; fried yet not oily, crispy, perfectly spiced and fresh. The highlight was that they used Vietnamese basa and made it desi, in a good way…”

“…we ordered Jama Masjid ka gosht korma. The dish sounded loaded with spices but it wasn’t. The thick curry or korma had a very light flavour of cardamom and well cooked mutton pieces…”

Caramel Wings reviews Puraani Dilli ka Zaiqa Festival at Copper Chimney, Khar, Mumbai

“…The special menu for the festival comprised of a selection of delectable treats from the land of the yum including seasoned specialties like Shakarkand ki Chaat and Khameeri Roti…”

“…then arrived a selection of gobsmackingly delicious mains which made me change my notion. The Kebabs were to die for and the Kathi Kebab was very flavourful. The Tali Macchli was outstanding. The Apricot and Paneer Koftas were way better than any food I had on my trip across North India…”

Chef At Large reviews the Old Delhi Food Festival at Copper Chimney, Mumbai

“…The carefully selected menu reflects the best of what the streets of Old Delhi have to offer. From Raj Kachori which reminds one of the oasis of Chandni Chowk called Haldiram’s to the Pista Malai Kulfi Falooda which brings you back to Dilli Chand Naresh Gupta Kulfi Wale and everything in between, it was a perfect recipe for a perfect evening…”

“…Seekh Kebabs were made from fresh ground spices and herbs with a generous sprinkling of dry fruits like cashews and almonds… flavors were perfect to the T, the kind you find in the lanes around Jama Masjid…”

Thoughts On A Plate reviews Copper Chimney, Mumbai

“…bringing in the flavor of Purani Dilli to Bombay is Copper Chimney. This month, the chefs at Copper Chimney have created a special menu of most of the delicious offering of Old Delhi. With a mix of spices, flavours and old heritage, Copper Chimney is offering an array of dishes legendary dishes…”

“…Kathi kebab was perfect. There was barely any oil in it. I love how crisp the roti was on the outside. Very different from the kathi kebabs I’ve eaten elsewhere. Paneer was very fresh and soft. It was treated perfectly with the spices and cooked to perfection…”

Spicewok reviews Copper Chimney at Koregaon Park, Pune

“…The taste lives up to the stellar expectations. Among the appetizers, we recommend the Aloo Chutneywala (Rs 205). Healthy and high on flavor, this grilled potato with chutney rub will have you reaching for more…”

“…The Tandoori Chicken (Rs 355 + for full) is just what tandoori chicken should be. The marinade well-steeped into the chicken, grilled to a doneness that makes the exterior crisp but retains its soft meat and of course, a very generous portion…”

“…The servers suavely key in the orders into their Ipads and also give us one to enter our comments at the end of the meal. Special mention to the warm and efficient service despite the bustling restaurant…”

Spaghetti Kitchen (Select Citywalk Mall, Gurgaon) reviewed in TheCityGuide

“…Spaghetti Kitchen has interesting, impressive interiors. So vibrant and loving, you’d be delighted as you step in. The Spaghetti Kitchen at Select Citywalk Mall in Saket gets enough light during afternoons because of it’s location on the top floor. The hanging lamps and attention to details in the design, make this restaurant quite warm and inviting…”

“…The Minestrone soup was healthy, hearty and flavourful but the Tuscany Onion Soup was superlative with taste of sweet onions against the robust flavours of the beef stock… The complimentary bread basket is super – consists of foccacia, pesto bread, herb-bread sticks and multigrain bread and are good to munch on while waiting for the starters…”

“…Thankfully, the music here isn’t loud and is pleasing. Allows you to have conversations with fellow diners…”

“…An elaborate menu, attention to details, super service, great portions and delightful flavours – Spaghetti Kitchen is a winner all the way! Must try for a great Italian experience…”

Caramel Wings reviews the Sizzler Festival at Bombay Blue’s Bandra outlet in Mumbai.

“…The lady at the door graciously received us and we were promptly seated at a corner table by the glass wall. The Manager, Vaibhav, explained their menu in detail and each and every member of their staff was smiling, helpful, quick with suggestions and attentive without being a nuisance to us while we enjoyed our meal…”

“…We started off with the Nachos Grande from their regular menu which the chef insisted that we try. I take my Nachos very seriously and believe me, these were unbelievably crisp, delicate, melt in the mouth with just the right amount of seasoning and the beans were cooked to perfection…”

“…Would I go back to Bombay Blue? Yes, I am taking the parents sometime next week since they love sizzlers. And the way its priced, I think it is a complete Value for Money…”

GoCityGuides reviews Spaghetti Kitchen, Amanora Park Town

“Set up beautifully in the Promenade Section of the vast Amanora Park Town, the tiny vineyard with the white and blue cottage style setting is difficult to miss.”

“Spaghetti Kitchen has an even more eclectic menu which is truly a delight especially for food connoisseurs who look forward to an Italian Gourmet Experience.”

“What takes away the limelight is the signature dish by Spaghetti Kitchen which is the “Penne Vodka” This tomato Pasta is truly unlike any tomato pasta you have tried.”

Follow My Recipe reviews Bombay Blue, Phoenix Mills

“The restaurant manager and chef were very sweet and made sure we tried a variety things on the menu.”

“I did enjoy the nachos and cheese (home made crisps). Mom loved the alu tikki stuffed with hung curd. That was pretty unique- the creaminess of the curd with the potatoes. Of the non- veg appetizer platter I liked the jerk chicken quite a bit. The flavours were authentic something I have not had in India yet- a Jerk chicken done right.”

“…my parents and I did enjoy our meal and the overall ambiance of the place. We relaxed and let the chef pamper us. Would I recommend it. Definitely for the snacks and appetizers and if you still have space for more experiment off the main courses.”

Karen Anand reviews Spaghetti Kitchen in the Pune Times

Time Food Guide

“…taken on world renowned Chef Bill Marchetti as their Corporate Italian chef. Bill made his mark in Melbourne as owner / chef at one of the most successful Italian restaurants in Australia. He now lives in India and has a perfect understanding of the offering required for a trendy Italian bistro combining the authentic and the local palette.”

“The menu is staggering in its variety and diversity, keeping some ‘Indian Italian favourites’ like penne arrabiatta, black pepper chicken and Parmesan cream potatoes. I personally loved the crunchy ciabatta – homemade bread served with fava bean bessara (an Italian version of hummous) and feta cheese dip.”

Spaghetti Kitchen, Magarpatta, Pune in Tossed Salad

Location – 1st Floor, G West Block, Amanora Town Centre, Magarpatta

“Done up with a lovely mosaic interior from the walls and floor to the tables, the place seats about 100 people comfortably…”

“While the menu seems extensive at first go, each section has a good handful of choices…”

“They’ve got soups and salads too, but we skipped them to try their pizzas. And oh, were we delighted. The crust is unbelievably thin and crisp. The meat on our With Pulled Lamb Roman Pizza was done well and juicy. Since fresh tomatoes have been used for the base instead of a paste, one could come across a slice tangier than normal….”
