Pindi shouts Authentic Punjabi food just by name and it is undoubtedly one of the popular Punjabi restaurants in its area. In fact, Pindi is one the Punjabi restaurant chains from my hometown, Delhi. So obviously I was excited to be a part of blogger’s table one fine Friday evening here.
Pindi, HSR has two-floor seating. Air conditioned casual dining space on one floor and rooftop with Bangalore breeze being another. I personally loved the rooftop setting. Very subtle, relaxing and ideal for a get-together. To add to the ambience, Pindi also has a very diverse bar. We ordered a bunch of cocktails and mock-tails and loved this addition to our table. I liked the long island iced tea and virgin mojito on the table particularly.
Apart from an extensive Punjabi ala-carte menu, Pindi has recently started a live grill option in the rooftop setting. Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian grills have a variety of deliciously marinated delectables.
In the vegetarian options, we had Paneer tikka, Tandoori Gobhi, Tandoori Aloo, Tandoori Sweet Potato and Tandoori Mushroom.
Non-vegetarian options included Tandoori Chicken, Chicken Seekh Kebab, Mutton Sheikh Kebab, Fish tikka and Tandoori Prawns. Chicken sheikh kebab was the most outstanding of all with the subtlety of flavours and beautifully minced chicken.
On a friend’s recommendation, we ordered Paneer Kurkure off the menu which we loved, Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Different and delicious.
For the main course, we had Butter Chicken, Dal Makhani, Mutton biryani and Chicken Biryani accompanied by an assortment of various bread. Butter chicken and Dal makhani were very Punjabi in taste. Being a Punjabi, I approve of it. Biryanis were flavourful too.
After the good meal, I was a tad bit disappointed with the deserts, which for us was Gajar ka Halwa(Carrot Pudding), Fruit cream and Gulab Jamun.
Grills are served with main course of Butter chicken, Dal makhani, breads and gulab jamun. The Live grill option for Pindi is For Friday and Saturday nights only. The various packages are:
|Grill with unlimited mocktails||849||949|
|Grill with unlimited draught beer||1099||1199|
|Grill with unlimited IML drinks||1299||1399|
|Grill with unlimited IMFL drinks||1499||1599|
My rating 3.5!
