The Guiltless Foodies

We are a gourmand couple who love to discover new places and eat our hearts out. Follow us for a guilt trip along the food road.

Review: Rainforest Resto-Bar, Phoenix Market city, Kurla.

An refreshing attempt to transform a simple dining experience into something which is appealing to both the eyes and the taste buds. Thanks to Rainforest chain of Themed restaurants, its no longer the boring tables, chairs, bright walls and art hanging around.

We (read Guiltless Foodies) decided to give them a visit as they had earned quite a reputation from other foodies and fellow zomatians, and of course from our personal visit to the Belapur outlet some time back (review coming up)
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, one of us being a veggie and the other a carnivore, never get the chance to justify on either of the cuisine for obvious reasons. it can never be a pure veg or a pure non veg dining. So like usual our dining experience goes as follows.

We were craving for an Indian fare that day. So, first we ordered the Junglee Paneer Tikka (if in a a jungle eat like a junglee..right?) It was the best decision ever, rather a suggestion from the captain who took the order. The paneer was succulent with a generous amount of spice from green chillies in a Mint/Spinach marination. An rating of 5/5 for this.

Now that the vegetarian starter was done with, next came the Alishaan Murg Tikka. This was somewhat similar to a chicken tandoori only with an exception of crushed peanuts. The chicken was tender and juicy, and the crisp peanuts were really adding to the taste. On a personal preference I would have loved it if it were prepared a little bit spicy. Overall an 4/5 rating.

cffd5fc56a0a89777d068e5f12ec9ad5_1429265010The portions were quite satisfactory, or rather on the heavier side. So it made sense that we stick to one vegetarian gravy with breads for the main-course. We were suggested the Moghlai paneer or the Singada Mutter, but since we already had a paneer starter and not being a fan of water chestnuts we went for the third option which was Diwani Handi. This was an assortment of vegetables in a spinach based pungent gravy. Being a chef specialty it was rather cooked exotically with the right amount of spices and a perfect combination of vegetables. This earns a clear 4.5/5 on the taste.

Talking about our experience from the beginning to end, it was just marvelous. The theme and the ambiance sure deserves a applaud. The food goes hand in hand with such an extraordinary place.

Well that’s all there is for now. We will be returning for more.

The Brown Bread Upma with Tomato Ketchup. One of our favourite - gets ready in a jiffy, tastes awesome and most importantly healthy. Whats your favourite breakfast?
