The vicinity of Raga lawns recently witnessed the launch of a lavish restaurant “Unwind”. With two separate dedicated dining sections & a night club the Punekar’s now surely have a new place to party with some equally amazing food & drinks options. All the three sections Al Fresco, Bistro & Night club have separate bar section which will surely improve the service as compared with other restaurants. Unwind is located next to Hard Rock Cafe besides Raga lawns and is totally separated form the main road with ample parking space.
The ambience at both Bistro & Al Fresco are designed for an open seating. The Alfresco has a live performance stage with an option for live screening as well. The Bistro section(Upper floor) is made more of casual diner types with bar attached to its’s side. The greenery and no cityshor will surely lead to some healthy and happy conversations.
For the drinks i had the Summer of 69 which was a mojito inspired drink which later turned out to be the perfect mocktail to start of with.
The Indo Thai Seekh was mistaken by us as a Non-Veg starter which was made of mix of corn & dried fruits. The marination of Thai curry added extra zing to it, served with peanut butter this dish surely amazed us by challenging our taste buds. The Murg Anari Seekh was the star dish of the evening with the minced tender chicken done in tandoor & was accompanied with pomegranate & pita breads.
Murg Zafrani Tikka is specialty dish form Mughlai cuisine in which the main marination ingredient is the saffron which blends along with curd & cream. The best tandoor dish we had so far, the saffron gave extra rich texture & taste to the tender chicken pieces. Barbados Ke Jheenge were the tiger prawns which were marinated with jerk spice(Jamaican hot spice mix), curd & saffron. The prawns were poured with on fire Caribbean Malibu Rum.
We had few flat breads which were super thin & dealt in some real deal topping. From these three i loved the mushroom flat bread.
For the mains we ordered a mix of Indian as well as Asian cuisine. The Murg Lahori tasted more like a regular butter chicken but went well with the garlic naans. The Burnt chilli rice was well accompanied with fish in chili garlic sauce.
With an array of sumptuous dishes satiating us we still had some space left for the dessert. The Chocolate mudpie was a classic American dessert globally known as Mississippi mud pie. The chocolate crust was layered with chocolate sauce, caramel & sprinkled with castor sugar.
At last a big shoutout to team Unwind & Ms Sannaya for inviting us.
