    by shalin Written Mar 1, 2014

    Located atop a building in a commercial complex (Tech Park One) this rooftop restaurant is a piece of bliss in one of Pune's busy work districts. Enjoy finger-licking good North Indian cuisine as well as some yummy middle eastern appetizers. The views are as lovely as the ambience and food. Makes for a great spot to entertain!

  • Malaka Spice-the best,most...

    by shalin Updated Jul 23, 2013

    1 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Malaka Spice- the most authentic south east asian food in Pune. A Pune institution - this place is a must visit. About 15 times larger than how it started, the outdoor relaxed ambience does justice to a meal out in beautiful Koregaon Park. Art for sale, an occasional flea market and a children's table allow for a pleasant experience.

    Favorite Dish: Roti canai, Basil tofu and almost all the curries are spectacular!

  • Mad House Grill: The best steakhouse in town

    by foodshood Updated Jan 16, 2013

    Mad House Grill is a restaurant located in the heart of Pune at one of the hottest night-out destinations – Korgaon Park. Mad House Grill selects only the most succulent meat and prepare them in their specialized unique way so that the taste is absorbed right down to the bone!
    Their specialties are flame grilled (never deep fried) vegetarian and non-vegetarian delights. They take special pride in their steaks and guarantee that the food will leave your taste buds yearning for more. I love that they want to bring about a relationship where they would love to have you to come, dine, wine and enjoy an unforgettable experience.

    In this fast paced world, Mad House offers a return to a simpler, slower and saner way of life. They believe there’s just no substitute for a freshly prepared meal! They are passionate about the ingredients they use and really do care about quality and taste. So while the food may take a little longer to prepare, the reality is that the taste is remembered long after the wait has been forgotten.

    Favorite Dish: All their Steaks are grilled to perfection and are mouth watering. The Raan is a must try. It's home-style food away from home.

    Chor Bizarre: Best at Lavasa and London

    by bradbeaman Updated Feb 23, 2012
    Chor Bizarre

    Chor Bizarre is the best place to eat at Lavasa. The inspiration for Chor Bazaars are thief markets common in India. If you can't get out to Lavasa you could try the London restaurant. Chor Bizarre is happy to be called "quite eccentric" and it fits.

    Favorite Dish: In London Chor Bizarre was voted "Best 10 restaurants" by the Independent. How could it not be even better and much cheaper in Lavasa, India?

    Sicilia: a visit to Sicilia.

    by tranceperent Updated Oct 24, 2010

    The restaurant is a fine Italian dining place and I’m tempted to add ‘the finest’ one. Italian cuisine is not new to Pune. I am not going to count pizzas at the fast-food chain style outlets as Italian, these are more American than Italian anyway! There are places like Dario’s, Little Italy and La Pizzeria that offer authentic Italian fare but with a rider. They all offer only vegetarian fare and so if you want to eat Sicilian style fish or beef you must make a visit to Sicilia.

    Favorite Dish: everything in veggie

  • The Green Villa: Great Mughlai Food

    by firdi1983 Written Nov 8, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is a bit hard to find but once found, you will not regret it. As you enter the hookah (sheesha) lounge, the beautifully done pine-wood, green tiles and comfortable kane furniture bowls you over. I have been frequenting this place with friends for quite some time now. I find it a good place to relax with hookah and refreshments. The Mughlai food and shawarmas are excellent. They have a separate section for families.

    Favorite Dish: Bheja Gurda Fry with Reshmi Paratha - I hardly ever like bheja but I have been eating this quite regularly because this preparation style reminds me of a certain place in Colaba, Mumbai. Love it!

    Flags: Delicious World Food

    by Helen64537 Written Nov 28, 2007

    Flags was definitely our favourite place for eating non-Indian food that we came across. The place is smart, modern and stylish with a lively and fun atmosphere. The menu is huge and the drinks menu is just as long, perfect if you have been craving a particular drink or are tired of drinking beer. There is also a great mocktails menu. The food was absolutely delicious, as were the drinks, and the staff were very friendly and attentive.
    We had a wonderful night celebrating my birthday and the combination of a lovely place, yummy food and great service made it that little bit more special.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite dish was the minestrone genovese soup, made of green basil and oregano. It was amazing! The BBQ Caribbean Chicken and Lanb Mousaka were both delicious too.

    Olympia: Yummy Kathi Rolls

    OLYMPIA ON EAST STREET – THE PLACE FOR KATHI ROLLS IN PUNE
    By
    Vikram Karve

    Olympia. The very mention of the word “Olympia” makes every ardent Foodie’s mouth water as it immediately brings fond memories of the unique eatery on Colaba Causeway in Mumbai which arguably serves the best Biryani in the world apart from other lip smacking non-vegetarian delights.

    But, do you know there is an “Olympia” on East Street opposite Kayani Bakery in Pune which serves perhaps the best Chicken Kathi Rolls outside of Kolkata. Priced at a reasonable forty rupees it is value for money nourishment at its best. The piping hot paratha enriched with a generous and well cooked soft covering of beaten eggs and filled with substantial pieces of succulent spicy chicken – it tastes heavenly as you dip it in the accompanying pudina chutney and pop it on your tongue along with a freshly sliced onion ring. The Chicken Kathi Roll is substantial and you feel truly satiated; unlike the empty feeling you get after having other fast foods like pizzas and burgers.

    Earlier this no-nonsense down-to-earth eatery was housed in a charming old-world bungalow at the same location where now stands a modern building with the new looking Olympia on a small part of the ground floor. But the ambience and food is still as before.

    Next time you are in Pune Camp don’t forget to visit Olympia on East Street and relish its delicious Kathi Roll. And don’t forget to pick up some Shrewsbury biscuits from Kayani Bakery opposite on your way home.

    Purepur Kolhapur: My favorite Kolhapuri Cuisine Restaurant

    by vikramkarve Written Dec 13, 2006

    Purepur Kolhapur is a Spartan no-nonsense eatery in the heart of Pune. There are just three main items on the menu – Mutton Taat (Thali), Chicken Taat, (which cost Rs. 75/- each), and Purepur Special Taat for a princely Rs. 120/- (I am told that the ‘Purepur Special’ contains everything the place has to offer!).
    The Purepur Special Thali comprises the following:
    • A large bowl of thick chicken curry with four generous pieces of chicken.
    • A plate of appetizingly crisp dark brown pieces of fried mutton liberally garnished with almost burnt deep fried onion strips.
    • A Kheema Vati (Katori)
    • A vati of Tambda Rassa ( Red Gravy)
    • A vati of Pandhara Rassa (White Gravy)
    • Kuchumber salad made of onions, ginger, coriander, green chillies and curds
    • Lemon pieces
    • A fresh piping hot chapatti (You can have bhakri if you want, but today I’m in a mood for a crisp hot crunchy chapatti splattered with pure ghee)
    • A bowl of jeera rice garnished with crisp brown fried onion strips and cashew nuts.
    I sip the pandhara rassa – it’s invigorating. Next I spoon into my eager mouth a generous portion of mutton fry. It’s not melt-in-the-mouth stuff (I think it is the inimitable Bolai mutton). I chew slowly and savor the sweetish taste of the fried onions blended with the lively spiciness of the crisply fried mutton. I dip a piece of the piping hot chapatti into the tambda rassa allowing it to soak in, place it on my tongue and chew it to a pulp until it practically swallows itself savouring the flavour till the very end. Exquisite! I lovingly pick up a small piece of chicken from the gravy; delicately place it on my tongue and roll it against my palate. I sample the Kheema Vati – it’s totally different from the Kheema I’ve tasted at Irani and Mughlai eateries. The Kheema has an unusual taste I can’t exactly describe – a bit sweet and sour– a counterbalancing contrast, perhaps.
    Purepur Kolhapur is worth a visit for the quality and authenticity of its food.

    Favorite Dish: Pandhara Rassa - it tastes heavenly, complements the meal, is digestive and cooling.
