Elements

I had been planning to go to this restaurant right since it came into existence (July 2004), but ended up going only last week. Nice place I must say!! Its on two levels. You can choose to either sit inside (ground floor) or alfresco (terrace). Going by the name, the theme is of the basic five elements. Oh, btw its a continental restaurant.

They have a quite huge and interesting menu. Although I did observe that there were more non-veg dishes than vegetarian. That said, the vegetarian food was quite good. On a scale of 1-5 (5 being the higest) the food can be definitely be rated between 3.5 and 3.75. We started with Cream of Mushroom soup, Spinach Fritters and Garlic Bread. The soup was lovely and the Garlic bread was amazing!!! Can't say the same about Spinach Fritters though. It was quite oily and it had a very prominent greasy after taste. Dont go by its fancy name, its basically a spinach bonda.

For the main course we had Corn and Spinach Steak, Veg Strognoff and a creamy spinach dish, whose name I forgot. All of them were really good. They have a nice collection of desserts too. I had a Lemon Cheese cake and yes, it was equally delicious as it sounds. The only catch was the quantity. The biscuit base and the cheese layers were almost of the same size as opposed to a traditional cheese cake.

Pricewise, it is definitely on the higher side. Might cost you around Rs 250-300 per person. They dont serve alcohol/cocktails. But they do have hookas available in many flavours.
