So Noida gets a new baby who will serve live grills and thrill the customers with some molecular gastronomy, yes I am talking about the recently opened A Grill Company and that too at one of the hottest destinations within Noida, that is the Logix City Centre Mall that also houses 15 screen theatre by PVR and one of the biggest IMAX screens.
Coming back to A Grill Company, the ambience is a well balanced one and gives you both a casual lounge like feel and also the fine dining experience.
Each table has the live grill fitted in it and that makes the experience even more over whelming. While our meats and veggies were getting roasted on the grill, the molecular gastronomy kept us amazed. A trolly with a dedicated person was wheeled in and it felt completely gimmicky, the play of nitrogen turned things into different textures and it was fun watching it. Now coming to the tastes, this trolly first of all served Nitrogen Nachos Chaat and Bhalla Papdi with Yogurt Spheres and both the items were nice, though the Nachos chaat did not have nachos in the real sense, it had more like Bingo chips taste, but overall it was good.
Next up was the Nitrogen Bar, and it served Golgappas with Pani Test Tubes, which were nice, though I liked only the Khatta wala Pani and not the sweeter ones. Then we tried the Deconstructed Dahi Vada Sundae, this was one of the most amazing things, first of all it no where looked like dahi vadas, it really looked like an ice-cream sundae, secondly the taste was superb, I really liked it.
From the grill section, I liked Neelgiri Korma Chicken, Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings, Mirchi Amawat Ki Gobhi & Pepper Fry Soya Chaap the most. The chicken was really tender and grilled to perfection. The gobhi was a real delight, the flavours were so amazing and well coated, that it tasted amazing.
The main course had an elaborate spread consisting of soup, salads, chicken, mutton and fish dishes along with a great vegetarian selection and desserts too. Also it had quite a mix of regional dishes. I settled for some Junglee Mutton and also tried the Dal Makhani, along with a Rajasthani speciality, Dal and Bati. The food was good, especially the mutton and dal makhani. Also tried a bit of Biryani and I liked that too.
In desserts, I had Chocolate Pastry, Chocolate Coffee Mousse and Berry & Custard, though the desserts were good, but I feel this is one section which has a scope for improvement.
But overall, given the fact that such Lavish Dinner Buffet costs only Rs 795++, I think its totally worth it. As they haven’t got the liquor license yet, we enjoyed flavoured bantas and refreshing mocktails.
Otherwise the buffet details are
