If you are looking at spending a chilled out and relaxed evening with good music, a couple of drinks and some authentic Nepalese & Tibetan food thrown in, Bunmanchi is the just the place for you. Everyone is well aware of the Nepalese and Tibetan delicacies served at Yeti, and now Yeti has opened up an exclusive bar at the third floor along with a terrace and that’s what Bunmanchi is all about.
With no frills attached, the philosophy of Bunmanchi is a well stocked bar, attentive service and some great starters to go with. Drinking at Bunmanchi gives you a feeling of having a good time with your friends and family in a second home.
Bunmanchi literally means ‘the jungle man’ and hence it restricts itself to the basic needs that a jungle man needs, food, shelter, clothing and the unstated happiness. Man after all is a social animal, and this feeling gets best stirred in over a gathering with a bottle of wine or a pitcher of beer.
They have a wide range of drinks to offer, though this time I settled for the good old bloody marry, which was a neat blend of all the ingredients and tasted perfect.
The snacks menu is simple and not very elaborate, if offers a handful of selected dishes to go along with drinks. Chicken Dimsums are a must try and here the dimsums don’t come with any fiery chilly sauce, but a very gentle peanut dip.
I also tried the Wai Wai Sadeko, which was a crispy and spicy wai wai salad.
I also ordered the non-veg platter, but unfortunately it didn’t have anything that I could eat, because it consisted of buffalo meat and tounge, but for those who enjoy it, please go ahead and try.
The crispy fried chicken and the fried chicken were really worth it and should be on your must try list.
The pricing is also pocket friendly, service needs to be improved upon though. I suggest seating on the terrace and spend a relaxed evening; you can also enjoy some sports matches on the huge screen placed there while you indulge in your drinks and snacks.
The place definitely calls for a visit and I am sure now you know where to plan your next outing.
