Red olives at Powai is a multi cuisine restaurant having a fine dine ambience . It’s always buzzing with crowd with the corporate crowd around . They have a humongous variety of dishes . My picks are oriental and Indian .
This one is the paneer kadhai tikka. The cottage cheese was perfectly soft and marinated in a light tossed gravy keeping the textures intact . The bit of roasted on the side just completed the dish .
Hummus platter with crisp pita . Hummus could have been more flavoursome with use of tahini and chickpeas.
Pepper stuffed mushrooms . I loved these . They were great for anybody who likes mushrooms and spices .
Cheese and jalapeno poppers ; keeping it classic red olives targets every customer base .
Sundried tomatoes and olive bruschetta – roasted in olive oil and baked with tomatoes is good choice for starters
Mushroom cappuccino . As unique does it sound ; so unique does it taste . It’s a soup . Yes you read it right . I loved the combination. Cream of mushroom sprayed with coffee took the definition of soup to another level .
Also they had some fun mocktails like Berry banana crush . Yes it sounds different. But for the ones who like banana flavour ; it’s great . Further they had the kiwi Martini and also their special concoctions .
Coming to the main course ,
Burnt garlic fried rice (veg) ; it was wholesome . Rices have to be cooked well for them to taste well . And it was cooked really well thereby the taste of garlic was lingering.
Red olives boasts of cuisines of North Indian , continental and Chinese which becomes home to one and all .
Saag paneer chilli fry is a dish liked by one and all . Simple paneer chilly tossed in spices .
Also tried the Spinach and vegetable dim
Commencing with desserts, usually pan is used as a refresher . The desserts were simple in plating but just spelled comfort . The pan blast new flavour was flavoursome and amazing. It was one of the best I have had. Next up was Gulab jamun with gulkhand rabdi . Soft Gulab jamun wrapped in rabdi are making my mouth drool .
Shahi Gulab badam slice was basically Rose flavoured icecream with Almonds
Also they have great buffet deals .
It’s the perfect place to catch up with family or your corporate meetings .
