Desi Treat – Review

Since it was drizzling in the eveing we were in the mood for ‘Desi Style’ comfort food so we stopped by this place to check it out.

As usual we started off with a Pani Puri and Samosa chat. This was followed by a Cheese Pav Bhaji and a Paneer Pav Bhaji which we found interesting when we read it on the menu but when it arrived it wasnt too impressive, the Samosa chat was very good though. For dessert we tried the Gulab Jamun but it  felt uncooked and there was a mass of hard powder right in the center.

Overall we thought it was just above average with a score of 3.5 out of 5, so once again the hunt for a good chat joint continues.

    To be honest, this place sucks. I ordered a samosa chat (parcled). The slick looking, immaculate looking (looks can be deceiving) said 0.500. I said, it says 0.450, quickly, he was rummaging for a 0.05, and didn’t, quickly he said that 0.050 is for parcel charges. I said, WHAT!.. Then I thought, why fight over 0.050, he can keep it. I am not going there next time..hunt continues…

      Mathai, there’s a couple of nice restaurants at the junction of the Indian Public School lane, going towards the SIMS ACADEMY, called CURRY HOUSE (Indian) & DRAGON EXPRESS(Chinese). Have you seen it? I think its only takeaway , we ordered Mongolian Beef and Dal Makhani(twice)…really nice. Try it out.

    Honestly, I am fond of this place & visit regularly. The staff is friendly & the food is also nice. I too have heard mixed reviews about the place but it isnt all that bad, atleast much better than aman & thakkar.

    Dear All,

    I stopped 3 days before near Desi Treat. After satisfying myself for looks of desi treat i entered inside with my friend. When we sat inside i thought may be it is good just for the looks…. then we ordered sevpuri, pav bhaji and veg grilled sandwiches. That was amazinggg ulti….. the taste for sev puri and grilled sandwich was ulti believe me. I am a regular customer of Indian delights. Desi treat now giving good tastes.

    I didn’t like this place either but I do like Food inn. They are by different owners as far as I know. Infact I quiet sure because I know the owner of Food inn. Sad, coz the place did have good prospect!
