A different experience in Kalyani Nagar !
Rating – 4/5.
Arbour Kitchen | Drinks opened its doors recently during first week of January and I was there as part of the pre-launch invite, yeah I know the post got delayed by a huge margin. However it was one of the few bloggers only events which was managed pretty well and the service was fast for most of the while until after 9 when the place was full.
The Ambience – In terms of ambience the seating is mostly covered outdoors and a few tables indoors too in the bar section, mostly it was tastefully done. It is an ideal setting for the pleasant evenings that we get in Pune almost 9 months of the year and the overall green surroundings and serene atmosphere adds a charm to the place.
Food & Drinks recommendations
Chicken wings were tasty and thankfully weren’t over fried and made for a cool starter.
Mac & cheese balls were cheesy and the accompanying dip made it a fantastic starter and is ideal for kids.
Orange energiser mocktail was an ideal companion with the starters.
Italian Verdure is an ideal choice for vegetarian Pizza lovers and we enjoyed every bite of this cheesy rich preparation and is something one must try if fond of vegetarian pizzas.
The Yakitori Chicken skewers were sort of bland and could definitely do with a bit more seasoning.
The Verdict – Overall a cool first impression of the place and the first signs definitely look impressive of what is essentially a European food place fused with Indian flavors. The place starts early during the day from breakfast hours (around 8.30 am) and runs till late into the Night and is great option in Kalyani Nagar area for all day dining.
