What Makes It Awesome?

I have been through this lane quite a few times but never actually noticed this place until today. The restaurants on this lane have a small entrance so they are hard to notice if you are passing by but they are grand like this one. From the outside, it appears that it can accommodate only a handful of people but when you step in you can see the actual picture. They have lower outdoor seating, a lower indoor seating, an upper outdoor seating and an upper indoor seating. The cosiest and the most house-like feeling is the upper indoor seating - It is made like "The House" and has different types of tables. The lower outdoor seating is the most happening with a few high tables and nice cheerful music. Mosquitos can be a concern in the winter evenings but coils can be arranged. Our wait staff Nitesh was knowledgeable and Bartender - Anwar shaikh was good at his skills too. Drinks/Beverages We sat in the happening area by which I mean in the lower outdoor seating which made us order a cocktail and some mocktails. The cocktail was the kind of I like - With Bourbon Whisky. It is named as Bourbon House - it is a mixture of Jim Beam, Bacardi and Vodka. The beer glass with Jim Beam sticker looked amazing and the cocktail was even better. It was garnished with a slice of Orange and some leaves over it. One of the mocktails we loved was The House Delight - According to them, they have it in different variety like Kiwi, Watermelon and some other options; we chose the Kiwi based because Nitesh informed that it is the best of all and it actually turned out to be the best. It is a clear mocktail with in house mix with Kiwi as a base with added soda, served in a Balloon glass. It had a proper not so sweet Kiwi taste. It is refreshing. Food Starters To complement our cocktail, we ordered a dish too much upon. The all-time favourite and almost and the safest option - Chilli Cheese Toast. It is just as expected and I am glad we ordered it. These were triangle bread toasted and topped with cheese, green chilli, onion and coriander (we requested to exclude tomato). It was crispy, spicy and cheesy at the same time and could be considered a perfect bar nibble. The next dish is a perfect continental starter - Grilled Paneer. We ordered this because The House is known for continental dishes. This is a perfect continental dish with Grilled paneer, mashed potato, Sauteed vegetables and Teriyaki sauce. I loved everything in here except the mashed potato as I am not a fan of potatoes. The dish is presented well, Paneer is soft and marinated well and the vegetables are boiled to perfection. Nothing more to expect from a starter. Mains The House has a different concept in terms of the main course. They don't have the main course listed in the menu but they have daily specials which they write on a blackboard along with the price. Out of the ones listed today, we went with the Napoleon Pasta - This is more of a white sauce penne pasta with a cheesy white sauce, exotic veggies and my favourite pasta bread. I so crave for these breads. Most of the times I agree to order pasta is because of these bread. The pasta was Insta-worthy and hence available on my Instagram page too. The bread was a little soft and different from other bread that I have had, but we liked it too. Other items ordered were Pinacolada, The fruit punch & Venkatesh chicken. The house is listed under Rooftops collection. It has a smoking area and Wi-Fi too. Some other items worth ordering here are Pizza, Fries, Chilli Chicken & Chicken Grill. We loved our experience at The House. Best for lovers of Rooftop Ambience, Continental dishes Pros: Quick service Crafted drinks
