I still remember my last school camp, just over a decade ago. Lying under a banyan tree and counting the infinite stars on a moonlit night was perhaps one of those moments I cherished growing up. Now with the smoky haze over the city of Mumbai, it can sometimes get difficult to see the moon, let alone the stars! When I came across the beautifully lit banyan tree inside Fisco, I couldn’t help but smile thinking about those school days where friends, fun and faltoo timepass ruled the roost!
This beautiful contemporary vegeterian Lounge – Restobar is situated in the suburb of Mahavir Nagar – Kandivali West, Mumbai and offers the best of the Indian and International cuisines. The place has some lovely round tables, high chair sofas on one end and cute cozy corner seating arrangement. I am not a fan of veg food but this fine dine restobar is known for its pleasant ambience and fabulous food and that compelled my visit. The prices are bit on the higher side but at the end we realized that it was total value for money as the portions, taste and uniqueness of the dish were worth it!
What I liked about the place:
1. Ambience is very classy, modern and stylish.
2. Presentations and signature dishes are great!
3. Staff is very helpful, attentive and courteous.
4. Menu and ambience compliment each other perfectly.
What I didn’t like that much :
1. Didn’t like the Brocolli. Thats a bias I’ve held from my school days….lol…
2. Location is on the main road near Raghuleela mall, not very visible but take care not to miss the place while looking for it.
