Buffet places remind of some old Chinese starters and flavourless curries and some aroma less biryani in their main course. With some below average desserts to offer, such places have brought the reputation for buffet places to a very low. But Palato is one of a kind buffet place. I was here for their new dinner buffet menu. They offer a mix of continental and Indian dishes. What's more, they also have a variety of salads and bread which were drool-worthy. A new concept of DIY salad bar and nachos and bread station awaits you to a great start to a fantastic meal. AMBIENCE (4/5): The place has a rather artistic feel and uses quirky artefacts to enhance the beauty. Antique bikes, trumpet, quirky one-liner wall frames and fine leather upholstery add a dash of panache. The restaurant is small and cosy. The place has live music to entertain the patrons which is a thing to look forward to. FOOD (4.5/5): There are a few new and innovative concepts which need a special mention. Here they go: Salad Bar: All the health freaks out there, you gotta come to this place for munching on some DIY salads. They have 9-10 variety of veggies, fruits and also had tofu and grilled chicken. They had three salad dressing which you can use by your choice and create your own healthy meal. A thing to improve would be to keep freshly made grilled chicken and tofu and the tofu felt hard and the chicken was bland. Also would recommend keeping the bowls covered with a clean wrap. Nachos and Bread Station: They had DIY nachos where they have salsa, chopped onions, jalapenos and chopped tomatoes. There were a variety of bread starting from pretzels, Levache, white bread, bread sticks, Jamaican Bread served with spiced butter. Jamaican bread stood out and I could not stop at one. Soups: We had tomato basil and lentil and chicken soup. The lentil and chicken soup was average and have more quantity of lentil flavour coming through than the chicken broth. Starters : We had cottage cheese tarts , crispy baby potatoes, sweet and spicy cottage cheese ,Bengali fritters,Veg and chicken momos , honey chilly wings ,chicken bhuna tart with fondue ,fish tempura ,prawn fritters, chicken samosas,keema kaleji,pita with choice of dip,chicken /cottage cheese filled pita , garden veg pizza and chicken ragout pizza. The dishes which stood out were chicken bhuna tart with fondue, honey chilly potatoes, chicken ragout pizza, pita with chipotle dip and Bengali fritters. The sweet and spicy cottage cheese was a bit too sweet for my palate. Main course: In the main course we had Bamia Bizet | Veg Casserole |Cottage Cheese Tagine Capellini Aglio E Oliol Curry Leaf Pilaf Arroz Con Pollo Chicken Meatballs Chicken Thai Curry |Prawn Mac & Cheese. Desserts: The desserts were something to look out for. I have not encountered a much better dessert spread in a buffet than this one before. We had toffee walnut tart, pannacotta, apple pie, fruit cake with ganache, cinnamon and honey cake, choco layer cake, chocolate pastry, almond and caramel cake, baked yoghurt with berry compote. These gourmet desserts were by far the best desserts in such cheap buffet rates. Baked yoghurt with berry compote and choco layer cake were to die for. I also loved their chocolate pastry and pannacotta. They also served red velvet yoghurt and caramel gelato which were amazing too. An absolutely delightful food experience at such a low rate of INR 700 is this place called Palato.
