This restaurant is on the main busy Sinhgad Road near Ganesh Mala and I bet you that you won’t have miss this on your way.
I was invited by Radio One’s Team was there for tasting some of their most talked about dishes.
At first glance place is huge with indoor and outdoor sitting area, with fort like interiors showing up the richness of the place. I just peeked into their huge menu and to my surprise they almost covered all the types of cuisines and it was not that pricey as well.
Mr Vijay the Hotel manager was there to attend us for the todays lunch. We started with
Sawai Special Soup: This was unique combination of Minestrone and Sweet Corn Veg Soup with grated Cheese fresh Cream. The soup had noodles with fresh boiled veggies crunchy enough to cut the sweet taste of the soup.
Appetizers: Spinach Malaysia: Googy Spinach Tikki was decorated by crispy veg. I found this bit on greasy side but tastewise it was good.
Kathi Roll Kebab: Marinated Cottage Cheese stuffing with fresh veggies in roomali Roti. Total Indianized Version of Kathi Kabab.
Paneer Jungi: This was vegetarian version of prawns jingha. Very well decorated, deep fried onion rings were placed on top, loaded with Small paneer chunks in an onion gravy. Nice spice level with good amount of butter. This goes with Laccha Paratha.
Sawai Maharaja: This is one of the special from the chefs closet. It was huge in portion size and two different gravies served in one plate. One was sweet with Cashew gravy much similar to Navratna Kurma, and the second one was with the onion gravy medium spicy with veggies. This can go with Butter roti and kulcha.
Veg Biryani: All my non-vegetarians friends, let’s not start Wor(l)d War III on this.!!! Even we vegetarian have biryani!! This was something different from the other veg biryani served at other places. The rice was red and the vegetables as well. Although this was not as per my palate, didn’t liked it much.
Honeymoon special: Let me list out the contains of this, Kulfi with three types of ice creams (Butterscotch, Chocolate and Kesar Pista) some fresh fruits cuts along with Jellies chunks and to decorate wafer triangle and cherry on top…. Oh gosh! It was huge and newly married couple can definitely sweep it out..!
Nice place to go with family which has good ambience and good food to serve.
