Heart Warming Vegetarian Desi Food At Desiklub | Food Review | Restaurant Review

Been wanting to land up here for a long time but somehow the stars never aligned, but destiny brought me here to try out their new menu and it was a fantastic experience :)

From the moment one steps in, the whole Bombay theme comes alive, with colorful decor, quirky photos and knick knacks such as soda bottle incorporated in the ambiance, chairs with names of Mumbai streets at the back and so on. Smiling, polite staff add to the positives. The menu is quite extensive with many lovely dishes, all of them presented with a little twist in novel manner (something comes in a boat, something atop a handcart!) and all of them taste good too, although most items are on the spicy side (I have a sweet jaw,so am extra sensitive to spice levels anyway :D)

We tried and liked a whole lot of drinks & dishes -
Paan Pasand Soda, Masala Jeera and Litchi Rose soda were nice to start off the evening's proceedings, all of them refreshing and Masala Jeera being the true standout,

Papad Bhel-Khichiya Papad Bhel served Chowpatty style, quite spicy, a little sweet, very crunchy, our love for chaats coming to fore,

Indian Sliders- veg cutlets served slider style, bite sized delights to be popped in quickly while gossiping with friends,

Paneer Satay-Cottage Cheese marinated in traditional Indian tikka spices served with peanut sauce, paneer could have been softer but overall decent, the peanut sauce as actually reminiscent of snickers paste,licked it clean :D, 
Two Cheese Chilli Toast- we love our toasts with green & red chutneys here and these guys have added a wholesome layer of melted cheese to that, how can it not be good :D,

3Pppppppps-Platter of Pakodas spiked with Peri Peri, pakodas in themselves are our favorites, these were crunchy, flavorful and my mom loved them the most, enough said!

Chennai se China Tak-Idli tossed with capsicum and green chillies in a chilli sauce, not much of a fan of spicy stuff but these were standouts for me since the Idlis tasted just like paneer, they were that soft and melt in mouth! Lovely fusion!

Sev Puri - these were just about good, I think the chutney they had on puri was tangier than I usually like,

Sabudana Cheese Vada- Again, a winner, our favorite sago croquettes made even better with Peri Peri and Cheese, and I had second helpings even though I am not a spicy food fan :D

Main course started with Hum Saath Saath Hain-Tawa Noodles with Paneer Chilli, a must-have dish with good balance of gravy, noodles, crunchy veggies, felt like a 10 year old having hakka noodles with paneer chilly at mama's home in Delhi :D,

Delhi Belly- My favorite Tawa Pulao with Vegetable Patty in Cheese Sauce, this one alone must have 1000 calories but it is soooo good, especially for cheese lovers, an indulgence to share among 3 very hungry friends!

Mexican Rice with Rajma Masala, I thought this would be on the tangy side but it was well flavored with spicy and sour tinges coming through, decent enough,

Spiced Rice with Indian Thai Curry, a little twist on Thai curry by making it more Indian which made it a good option for rice lovers,

Chole Te Bhature with typical Delhi super spicy Chole and mini Bhature, have this if you are missing Punjabi tadka to your food, this one is a firestarter in mouth :P

After all this spicy food (delicious nonetheless my palate was on fire!) I needed heavy duty desserts and I got it in the form of Mukhwas and Kala Jamun Rabdi Tart. A tart pastry with kala jamuns and cream cheese, a very dense and heavy dessert that would appeal to Indian dessert lovers who are open to contemporary twists while I say blindly go for Mukhwas -a delectable combination of Paan Cheese Cake, Thandai Shots and Paan Jelly, I am not even a paan lover but this won me over. On my list of most amazing Desserts in Mumbai :)

Prices on the higher side, which is explained via the location as well as quality of ingredients & the whole novelty factor. Definitely a place to try out at least once with family :)
