Restaurant Review- Chili’s @Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj
Once in a blue moon comes a chance, where you visit an eating joint and end up falling in love with each and everything that the place has to offer. I experienced the same when I visited Chili’s at Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj. It was truly a wonderful experience and I cannot simply get over it, the food, the ambience, the hospitality, everything was top notch.
Ambience was very comfortable and vibrant, with adequate lighting; somehow I don’t like places that have dim lighting, as I love seeing food in its true colours as much as I enjoy eating it.
Classic Chicken Nachos– A simply mind blowing starter, crisp and cheesy at the same time, a must try.
Triple Dipper– A perfect starter that brings three appetizers together, Chicken Crispers, Chicken Wings and Southwestern Eggrolls. I personally found the Chicken Wings a little too tangy, rest both the dishes were delectable. Each of them comes with different dips and the dips certainly enhance the taste, there was an avocado based dip to go with Southwestern Egg Rolls, A Ranch Dip for Chicken Wings and a Chipotle Dip for Chicken Crispers.
Texas Cheese Poppers– Again a great starter, especially for vegetarians, crisp on the outside and creamy on the inside.
Presidente Margarita– This is a Chili’s special cocktail, which has hand shaken Margarita made with Jose Cuervo Especial Reposado, Cointreau and Brandy. The presentation of the drink was excellent and so was the taste.
Cosmopolitan– I also tried the tried and tested Cosmopolitan, a Vodka based cocktail that has Triple Sec and Cranberry Juice. This is too was done perfectly.
Classic Bacon Burger– we tried one with minced chicken patty and other with a beef patty, and I have to say the burgers were just awesome, very juicy and cheesy, messy but amazing.
Californian Grilled Chicken Flat Bread Pizza– Really crispy and amazing pizza, and I found it amusing to eat a pizza, which wasn’t round.
Mix and Match Fajitas– We tried the Trio Fajita, which had grilled chicken, grilled steak and shrimps. It came with flour tortillas and a variety of sauces, like sour cream, salsa and pickled onions and jalapeños. This was truly one of the best I had and is highly recommended.
Fresh Mex Rice Bowl– Now this was the highlight dish for me personally. I simply loved it and I am going back for it very very soon. I tried the grilled chicken bowl and its definitely on the must try list. I really don’t wanna tell the details of it, order it, eat it and find it out on your own.
Cajun Pasta– Frankly speaking I haven’t really liked Pasta, whenever I have tried eating at different joints, I always felt, I make it better, but this one gave me a tough competition, it was truly delicious.
Quarter Grilled Chicken– A very popular dish, that was served on a bed of rice with an amazing dip, though there is an option of choosing other side dishes as well.
Herb Sole Fish– This too was amazing, and was part of their promotional menu, which means its on the menu for about 3 months and still up for grabs, so don’t miss your chance to try out this delicacy.
Molten Chocolate Cake– A simple yet delectable dessert, it was a mouth melting experience.
Chocolate Truffle Cheese Cake– This dessert made me drools over it, it was so yummy. It also features in the must try list.
Overall, the experience was fantastic, and it was made even more special with the presence of two people, Payal Singh, the marketing head for the group and Chirag, who is the head chef for Chili’s, their presence made the entire food experience not just interesting but knowledgeable too, as Chef Chirag kept sharing his little secrets and what goes behind making those delectable dishes.
I give this place a generous 4.5/5 rating and recommend a visit to all my readers. You’ll surely fall in love with the place and the food will make it all worthwhile.
