Red Chillies Kharadi, Pune

Decent Ambience, more than decent food and service !

Rating – 4/5

Owing to the below average reviews in general on Zomato I was a bit skeptical about visiting Red Chillies.
However being the Non Veg fasting season of Navratra literally killing my gastronomical desires and not able to cook Today we gave this place a try and I am glad we did 🙂

Ambience is good and servers are polite and note down the orders carefully.

Coming to the food, I must say it really really surprised me and it was a pleasant surprise for sure.

We ordered the following :

Manchow Soup – 3.5/5 – Taste was good though it was just a little bit sour for my liking but wasn’t bad at all.

Paneer chilly – 4/5 – This was amply spiced with capsicum, onion and green chillies accompanying the crispy Paneer. Good taste for sure, beware of the green chillies, it could turn out to be really hot.
Hara bhara kebab – 5/5 – This was the star of the show, it was a bit crunchy, topped by 2-3 fried cashew nuts with a really tasty stuffing. This was the best Hara bhara kebab we had in a long time.

Dal Makhani – 3.5/5 – the taste and texture was a little different compared to the traditional Dal Makhani which is rather brownish and creamy combination. This one was prepared in a shade of red and tasted quite alright but was a variation from the usual Punjabi preparation. Also the lentils could have been a little bit more boiled, took a half rating off because of that.
Paneer Tikka Masaala – 4/5 – This was a red gravy preparation with 7-8 pieces of Paneer and was a tasty preparation.

Overall we had a good outing at this place and I must say this place is definitely recommended for an all Veg outing.

It was almost full during our visit on a weeknight but there were no delays in terms of service. Still not able to understand the ratings on Zomato.

Also happened to meet Mr.Yashwant, the owner of the place and he came across as a humble gentleman.

Value for money for sure – 3 adults and one kid could have a satisfying meal under 700.
