Stumbled upon this outlet of BBQ Nations by sheer happenstance. Been a fan of the restaurant ever since they arrived in at Jaipur and I’ve been to the other outlet countless times. So I was really excited to see what was new here.
The Vegetarian starters menu hasn’t been updated for as long as I can remember.
On the Grill:
-Pineapples (⭐️⭐️⭐️ )
-Soya Chaps (⭐️⭐️)
From the Kitchen:
-Corn Fritters (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
-Dahi ke Kababqaaà (⭐️⭐️⭐️🌠)
While the Corn Fritters and barbequed paneer are my all time favs, but I’ve had this same menu so many times, it has started to loose charm for me.
They need to introduce new items on the menu to keep it interesting for frequent guests.
One thing that’s new here is the live kitchen. Now that’s a very interesting way to keep the guests engaged watching the culinary performance while eating. But to my dismay they were only serving non veg on the counter. Still fun to watch.
Tried the Mix Veg Korma and Daal Makhani for main course. Both were good in taste. But had a mishap with the Veg Biryani which ruined the experience for me. The rice in the Biryani were hard and felt undercooked. It felt like chewing on raw rice grains. We called the chef and he said they forgot to refill the serving bowl and it was sitting there simmering in the low flame for long. Ugh..I couldn’t bear the bitter taste. Had to go for dessert.
The Hakka Noodles and the finger fries were taste savers.
Their Chocolate Kulfi is to die for. Unlike any other milk based kulfis that have chocolate flavoring, their kulfi actually tastes like it’s made of real Chocolate, not just flavored like one. Fantabulous. Also tried the Pan Kulfi, with gulkand and sprinklers, it was a very refreshing taste. The hot mini GulabJamuns were great too.
The other desserts (Brownies, pastries and custard-tarts) were just okayish and lacked the quality we’ve come to expect at BBQ-N
The floor space is much larger here but the decor and theme is the same more or less. The staff although was very courteous saying all the right things, but after a few mins in it was obvious that some of the new guys lacked the service basics.
Now BBQ-N is well known for their hospitality and that is one of the reasons to like them, but being nice to the customer is only one side of the coin, the other side is how you serve them.
This outlet restaurant has to perform extra hard to keep up with the sandards set by the Tonk Road Barbeque Nation.
