Food first is located in Malad, DLF Tower. The location is a bit odd as it is within the office building – ideal to attract corporate crowd for lunch but not for dinner.
The ambiance of the place is awesome with day light saving by having glass ceiling. It also gives a spacious look as its double heighted. The décor is classy with you different area for bar and different for dining. It has projector screen and it’s great to catch good football or cricket match. Ideal for sport lovers to enjoy over drinks.
The place has very reasonable pricing for alcohol and guess that’s why it attracts a lot of crowd – many stags as well. The beer is very cheap and I definitely recommend the new popular beer – Bira White and Bira Blonde. We ordered the big bottle that acts like a pitcher. I also tried fresh lime water and that was very sweet and refreshing.
We started with chicken salad that had lettuce, mayo, veggies and shredded chicken. The taste was just average and I wouldn’t recommend it at all. Even the appetizers that we ordered like chicken tikka was very disappointing. It was dry and hard and very chewy. The presentation was okay – which I din expect much anyway. The kaali mirchi chicken was relatively a better preparation with chicken marinated with black pepper marination. The taste was nice but overall the taste was still dry.
We then opted for main course – chicken fried rice and chilly chicken gravy. The fried rice quantity was very good and it was prepared very well. The taste was good and no excess salt as well. Even the gravy for chicken was delicious with the right amount of spice and salt. It also had veggies in it but was not too thick and went well with the fried rice.
The place was crowded being a Saturday evening and the service was very slow. I had to call the manager twice or thrice for the order and even then he din come. No one cared if the guest wants to repeat something or continue or anything.
Value for Money:
If you’re looking for a lot of drinks then this is a great place. But the food is over priced. So this is mainly a drinking place only and recommended for stags. So take your pick depending upon what you’re looking for.
