Nano would always say "Oonchi dukan, pheekay pakwan" and over the years I've found this to be true more than often in the capital.
Before I was to head home after my graduation, I wanted to have a last Iftar with my friends and so we ended up going to English Tea House (still kicking myself for adding this option to the poll and then picking it).
We ordered one Iftar platter as we were all looking forward to a proper dinner. The platter that they claim is for 2 is a joke! 2 sandwiches, two wings, 4-5 pakoras and a bowl of fruit chat for Rs. 650!
We ordered 5 mains, out of which three were horrible and two were just edible. I ordered the Irishman's Cow burger while my friends ordered Chicken Roulade (edible), Special Chicken Pizza (slightly above average), Lady Smith's Choice burger (overdosed with black pepper) and Stuffed Chicken Cheese Breast (the worst dish on the table. It smelled funny. Was tough as leather and oh God I felt for my poor friend!).
My burger was bland, the bun had a sweet after taste to it and it had no sauce whatsoever! It was dry, and sorry and WHY DID I GO THERE 😩
We called their manager and told him about our sorry experience. He said the stuffed chicken shouldn't even be on their menu, even he knew how horrible it was! For the rest he was just sorry. He offered to replace the stuffed chicken with anything else from the menu but we were running late. He didn't include it in the bill. It really was untouched jbtw.
The ketchup in the glass bottle neither tasted like Heinz to me nor did it look like the original but the manager was adamant that it is so idk 🙄
P.S. My friend ordered a cookie and this brownie like thing and the brownie like thing was probably Hagrid's rock cake! We couldn't cut through it, when tried too hard, it almost hit someone in the face. It couldn't even be chewed. The cookie was all crumbling. Bad. 😒
The ambiance and interior is amazing, service is almost good but that's about it 🙌🏼
The bill for all this excluding the stuffed chicken and including a 1.5 litre bottle of water was Rs. 5097.
Final Verdict: 3.5/10
