Pali Bhavan

Rest : Pali Bhavan
Meal : Lunch
Loc : Bandra, West

After a long, long morning shooting we decided to go back to work but it was nearing 2.30 an i was starving. Debating on a quick swing by Mamagoto or Papa Pancho, i on a complete lark ended up pulling into Pali Bhavan. 

greeted by this old village style staircase which i loved. 

the space def has a strong vintage theme with the knick knacks and a wall full of old family photographs.  i love the tin roof but less clutter, some strong art and understated lighting fixtures would have gone a long way aesthetically. 

the menu like the decor is a bit all over the place, northern, southen, deccani so am not sure what the overall effect is supposed to be.  it is distinctly Indian for sure. 

i had the paneer khatta pyaz which was in a tomato gravy with some pickled onions. excellent call this one. good stuff. 

the dal was okayish, tasted decent but lacked that solid punch and after taste that you expect from a really good one. 

the garlic naan was excellent. 

as was the laccha paratha.
Overall, id avoid going at lunch because its full of LOUD ladies who lunch but the food is decent and has potential. they had some interesting looking appetizers which would be worth a try and the service too was pretty quick.

However, in the grand scheme of things, its expensive and plenty of others do similar food, some better, some cheaper. Not compelling. 

Food : 7/10
Service : 8/10
Damage : 2k for 2 without drinks.
