Pop By This Quaint Middle Eastern Style Cafe For Palatable Food & Drinks
What Makes It Awesome?
Situated in Lokhandwala, Andaz Café has a chic ambience and a beautiful indoor and outdoor setup. They have extensive options for drinks including shakes, coolers, and coffees, but relatively limited for food. It's a middle eastern themed restaurant, and the menu is well-articulated. The service overall was good with attentiveness even though I opted to sit outside. Coming to what I had, I started with drinks like Chatka Lemonade (Rating 4/5) and Watermelon Ginger Mojito (Rating 4/5) – Both were refreshing drinks and had a distinctive taste, however, the chatka lemonade had excess masala, and I didn't like that whereas, the other one had relatively larger pieces of ginger which again wasn't something I liked. But they didn't taste bad. Talking about the food, I tried their Hummus (Rating 5/5), Chicken Tikka Pizza (Rating 5/5), and Chicken Croquettes (Rating 4/5) – The hummus was served in different style with Zatar pita bread. The hummus was yummy, and I loved its overall consistency. It is a must-try dish here. The pizza was a basic 10-inch size, it had chicken tikka dry gravy pieces and was made with mozzarella cheese. It certainly looked very appetising, and the taste was great. Add chilli flakes to the pizza, and you are good to go. The croquettes were well-presented, however, the taste of the chicken was flat to some extent compared to the other two dishes I tried. For desserts, I tried their Tiramisu (Rating 5/5) and Blueberry Cheesecake (Rating 4/5) – I was awestruck with the presentation of both the desserts. I saw a cylindrical cheesecake for the first time here. The biscotti of the cake was almost a 0.75 inch, which I had rarely seen, and the cake was slightly hard to slice, however, the taste was good (as expected) with the right amount of acidity with blueberry whereas, the tiramisu tasted heavenly with the perfect flavours of coffee and moisture between the layers. Overall, I had a good experience, and I would love to visit it again soon.
What Could Be Better?
They could improve certain dishes like make thinner cheesecake and softer and tastier croquettes.
