Our weekend Brunch at White Violet.

We love quoting ourselves at every possible situation. A few blog posts earlier we had written “One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating. We all love food, all types of food, and living in a multicultural society we get to taste different types of cuisine that are pleasurable, fulfilling, and at times rewarding too.”

Talking about different types of cuisine, our choices are slightly inclined towards a set buffet as compared to à la carte. In a buffet you get a variety of options in terms of cuisines too. And if it’s a Weekend Brunch, we are always game. So, if Brunchs’ calling on Saturday or Sunday the White Violet restaurant at Majestic Sarovar Portico is indeed a blessing. A buffet spread to fulfill the needs and greed’s of everyone.

We visited this place on a Saturday, and here is a low down on our experience.

Food – Life is so much easier when each of us can pick and choose as per ones preference. A buffet is a blessing in disguise to people who love to eat all one can with no prohibitions. The buffet at White Violet was the usual fare of soup and starters served on the table followed by main course and dessert. Our favorites from the buffet were –
Mulligatawny Soup – Smooth and creamy lentil cooked with very mild spices and some boiled rice was the perfect partner to the rains. The dash of lime made all the difference to this flavorful soup.

Tom Yam Chicken Soup – A delight to every non vegetarian. Perfectly spiced with the right amount of tang. Our personal favorite.

Among the starters one of the 2 veg starter was the Veg Kurkure which deserved a mention. Crispy vegetable pops or nuggets deep fried to perfection and served with a fresh Coriander and mint dip.

The non vegetarians did enjoy quiet a few starters of which the best and favorite among all was Threaded Chicken. Juicy strips of chicken coated with noodle and deep fried. The tenderness of the chicken remained intact despite it being deep fried. A must have for sure.

The vegetarian mains were nothing important to talk about as were the non vegetarian affair. The food was rather cold and lacked in taste due to it.

The desserts definitely made up to everything. Great variety and paying equal attention to the ones who are pure vegetarians and don’t even consume eggs. A big cheers on taking the initiative. Our pick from the dessert section being the Baked Yogurt and the Blueberry Cheese cake which needs special mention.

 

Ambience – Eating in natural light is a pleasure on its own. When we sit to dine with people on the same table it is very important to be able to see the person as well as see what comes to our plate. White Violet has done full justice to it. The buffet also has been set  such a way keeping in mind ease of access. A very corporate looking business style hotel.

Hospitality –  At a buffet the service is not about helping on the table but to keep the buffet in perfect shape. This really required some extra effort to be put in. The starters in the table were piping hot bit the mains lost out on that. Even the refilling wasn’t prompt. But of course the staff took great care of us being available to answer every queries of ours.

Locality – New Bombay is fast growing and there is wide range of transportation easily available at any given time. White Violet is no exception and is amidst the bustling offices of Mahape area.

Affordability- Eat all you can and an affordable price is what this restaurant screams of. A no fancy no fuss restaurant which has a wide range of cuisine at just about 600 ++ person.

Whether you want to grab a quick bite or you want to have a lavish lunch at the most affordable rates White Violet is the selected one.
