Hrezzo Ghatkopar Mumbai | Vegetarian Vegan Jain Feast | Food Review | Restaurant Review | Family Favorite

So glad to see Ghatkopar turning into a foodie paradise with so many new cafes, restaurants and delivery restaurants coming up in the vicinity. Hrezzo is certainly one of the most memorable ones in this regard. Was here with family last week for review and while some dishes need fine tuning, overall we loved our experience so much that we ordered in food from here 2 days ago when we had guests at home, and will certainly reorder again :) 

It is not only a pure vegetarian place but also has many Jain and Vegan dishes on the menu (Indian, continental, oriental) and there are choices for health conscious people too. Basically, one roof with something for everyone in the family, from fitness freak to Indian cuisine fanatic to global cuisine lover and enough deliciousness that even staunchiest meat lover won't miss meats. The ambiance is fantastic too, with huge indoor as well as beautiful outdoor seating. Staff is extremely polite and service is fast. Prices are a bit higher compared to portions (in starter section) but as far as quality of food is concerned, prices are worth it.  

We started off with VEGAN LEMAK LAKSA- Spicy Coconut Flavored Laksa Noodle Soup, the flavors were nice, it was fragrant too but had a little bit too much oil that should be reduced,

Then we had salad VEGAN SUKHOTHAI- Spicy Thai Salad with Raw Papaya, Raw Mango, Peanut Chilli Honey Dressing, EXCELLENT, served exactly what was promised in menu description,

For starters, we had huge choice and we zeroed down on-

PANEER PIADINA - Silky Paneer Roll, Multani Marinade, Chili and Dry Fruits Vegetable Salsa, Mint Chutney, this wholesome delicacy is a MUST-HAVE,

VIETNAMESE PARCELS - Bok Choy, Cucumber, Carrot, Avocado wrapped in Rice Paper Roll, very crunchy and had a healthy feel to it, it is not 'adapted to Indian palate' and is quite bland, I loved it but people like my mom who love burst of flavors should stay away from this,

HAZARVI BROCCOLI - Broccoli Marinated with Chef's Spice Hazarvi Mix, this one was actually on creamy-very-mildly-sweeter- side and made broccoli extremely tasty, MUST-HAVE for sure, 

STIR FRIED LOTUS STEMS - Lotus Stems in Classic Plum Sauce, a burst of Sweet-Tangy-Very-Spicy flavors on palate, absolutely crackling dish, MUST-HAVE from my side but beware as the flavors (especially spicy) here is very strong, one of the rarest dishes in my life where I have liked something spicy :D

For main course, go for Buddha Bowl, it is a 1-person complete filling meal and quite pocket friendly,

MUST-MUST-MUST-HAVE is NAWABI KOFTE BOWL- Kofta Curry, Nawabi Kulche, Jeera Rice, Kachumber Salad, Kale Apple Lemon Salad, Spinach Garlic Dip,  every element in this bowl was lip smacking with Koftas being OUTSTANDING and Jeera Rice being so delicious yet light! And those Kulcha.....yummmmmmm...I could have this everyday, literally a 5 STAR DISH ON ITS OWN :)

My sister chose PENNE PASTA PINK SAUCE but this was the only disappointment for us as instead of a mix of red+white sauce we got tangy red sauce pasta. However, the staff was extremely sweet and considerate when we brought this to their attention and promised to work on it.

And we got to see if they stuck to their word or not when we ordered in food 2 days ago. Guess what, they did! We had PASTA CHILLI ARRABIATTA and PASTA WHITE CHEESE and both were LIPSMACKING with proper flavors and exotic veggies, 

We also had PANEER TIKKA BOWL (Buddha Bowl)- Bhatti Da Paneer, Kale Apple Lemon Salad, Red Cabbage Slaw, Masala Naan, Spinach Garlic Dip and everything was good but the Makhani gravy in this was too oily (extremely delicious and I personally polished it off within 10 minutes but still, a little less oil will be appreciated) 

Finally we had PEPPER PIZZA - Char Grilled Capsicum, Caramelized Onion, Buffalo Mozzarella, I liked the crispy crust, very generous layer of cheese and mildly sweet base sauce but would like more toppings, it had very scanty toppings.

So there have been a couple of dishes that need fine tuning, but overall we have more MUST-HAVES than disappointments in their offerings that make Hrezzo stand out for us and we heartily recommend it.

Oh and before I forget, they do not have an expansive dessert menu, rather it is just a bunch of waffles that I am not interested in. But worry not, they have an UNBELIEVABLY GREAT BEVERAGE section that will suffice your cravings for dessert :) We tried and LOVED-

Fresh Lime Soda,
Apple-Beetroot-Carrot (ABC) juice,
Caramel Coffee,

What stood out here is their HAZELNUT COLD COFFEE, it is heavenly and everyone must have it,

PLUS their BROWNIE SHAKE, which is like a complete meal in itself, it is actually a mini freakshake that comes loaded with an ice cream as well as a solid block of dark chocolate! Who needs a separate dessert menu when this piece of heaven in here. Yes, it has about 10,0000 calories but please ignore that pesky fact and MUST-MUST-MUST order this :D
