Olive Garden Reruns and Reviews

I have food issues! Serious ones! And because of that have a tendency to return time again to restaurants that have a good track record. One restaurant that comes close to being one of m favoriteswhether for an outing with friends or a meal with the family is Olive Garden, in F-7. Landmarks associated with location include, Hot Spot, Golden Dragon and Gelatto. It is opposite the Fountainhead School and accesible through a winding street that you can enter from street 7.

Olive Garden offers you the option to eat outside in an old fashioned wooden gazebo style structure, located away from the grill and barbecue which means that you usually avoid taking in the smoke with the food, should you choose to sit outside; as well as having a warm, terracota, very European style eating hall inside. Wrought iron chairs and tables with stone ware and silver really add to the ambience. The staff is actually well mannered and pretty attentive which then brings me to the food.

The menu has the usual Italian/Mexican inspired starters, soups and salads and a pretty standard offering of pasta, spaghetti and steaks. There are a couple of thai variations for chicken and sea food which are pretty acceptable. The desi palette is well catered to with options for seekh kababs, handis, and chops. The nans are always excellent, soft on the inside and warm and crusty on the outside. They have a variety of cold drinks and juices like daquiris, and coolers that go down well in the summers but serve a well brewed cappucino to warm one up after a hearty meal. The coffee also serves as a good foil for their out of this world cheese cake served generously with chocolate sauce and their baked alaska is pretty passable.

So the next time you have the craving for good food and you’re willing to spend a little for it (example; cappucino; Rs. 75; Chicken, pasta, Spaghetti and steaks; anywhere between 275 to 400 rupees); try The Olive Garden.

Bon Appetit! :)

    You’re very welcome for the review and I see this captain will be bossy enough to remind me to categorize :-D

    Olive Garden is a really nice place to eat and the only way my friends and I go is if we pay our own way. Paying for all of them would leave a sizeable dent in your pocket I’m afraid.. Say if you were 4 people ordering just main courses, your bill would amount to anywhere between 1200 to 1600 rupees excluding drinks or desserts and salads. Imagine my poor baba paying nearly 2200 rupees for a dinner for 4 people tonight)…

    Good luck! Do let me know when you’re going.. I’d loove to join you!:)
