Review of Kaidi Kitchen Vegetarian Restaurant
Chennai Focus visited Kaidi Kitchen, a vegetarian themed restaurant located in Bishop Wallers Avenue, (Opp. to Savera Hotel), Chennai.
Ambience: it is a jail themed restaurant with the waiters and the supervisors dressed like cellmates and jail wardens respectively. There are tables outside the cell ambience with a prison feel and decor. We sat in the normal tables. The restaurant has a live Mocktail bar but there wasn’t much of activity and felt uninviting and more like a shop. From the entrance to the tables, everything is carefully set so as to give a feeling of dining in a jail.
Highlight: Tables in prison cell. The tables in this section should be reserved in advance.
Service: One observation I made with the waiters was that they suggest a few dishes which was the most costly in that category though they do sound sensible at times with your choice of side dishes.
Food: We heard that the north Indian cuisine was the best in here, so decide to go with it though their menu has Lebanese, Mexican, Italian and more.
Starter: The starter we ordered was Achhari Mango Paneer Tikka. Paneer was very succulent and the flavoring was up to the mark.
Main Course: The main course was Tandoori Roti withAchari Baby Potato Curry and Methi Malai Mutter. Methi Malai Mutter was way too sweet and creamy and left us wondering about its combination with which main course. Achari Baby potato curry was not all that spicy as expected and made a good side dish for the Roti. The spices in it were pretty different that we had tasted before.
Desserts: We opted for Sizzling Brownie with Vanilla Ice cream as the dessert and found it to be just the same as available in many other restaurants.
The other dessert, we opted was Crème Glasson Fruity which turned out to be pretty disappointing to us. The description said that it had an assortment of dry fruits on it and that was the main reason we had decided to order it. When it came, there were no dry fruits at all. When we asked the waiter about the absence of dry fruits, we got multiple answers. One was that the menu card was outdated and the dessert does not have dry fruits these days. The other guy told us that
they were out of stock of dry fruits and so it was not added to the dessert. It was frustrating to pay Rs.201 and taxes for a dollop of Ice cream with few fruits.
Price: It came to a total amount of Rs 1900 for a family of three which is a bit pricey when compared to the quality of food and service we got from the restaurant.
Manager of the restaurant took our name and phone number for a feedback, so we are still WAITING for a reply from their side.
Overall it was an average experience and the only saving grace was the ambience.
