Golconda Chimney


I’ve passed Golconda chimney in my to-fro office journey from the time I’ve been in Bangalore, it always looked like an interesting place but never got a chance to try it until recently and I must say, I should have visited it earlier .
The interiors are very simple yet elegant with stone walls and pretty colored glass lamps.
The menu is a mix of Indian and also a bit of Chinese but we only had the Indian .
For starters, we ordered the special Chimney kebab.
Chimney Kebab - notice the way its served!

After a little bit of a wait, we got some pretty decent sizes of boneless hot n spicy chicken which  had the smoky taste of being done very well in the tandoor.It was served with a mint n yoghurt chutney( more of yoghurt than mint) and onion salad.
Next we tried the chicken clear soup .

 It was definitely clear with a medley of cucumber,spring onions,spinach and boiled chicken. Tasted healthy, I liked it but my colleagues weren’t so sure.
For mains we ordered the Chicken Zabardast – this was chicken cooked with a heavy masala of spices, tomatoes, lots and lots of curry leaves and garlic.

 It went very well with the rotis, which soaked up the thick gravy.
One of my friends had ordered the masala kulcha which was soft and tasty with a good filling of spicy paneer.
We also tried a Chicken Dum Biriyani which came with raita.

 The rice was long grained and it looked scrumptious but it looked better than it tasted. I would have liked my rice a little more cooked and also the masala hadn’t absorbed properly in the rice and chicken which ended being a little bland .
We just couldn’t leave with out having something sweet – so ordered one plate of gulab jamuns(3 in a plate).

Hot and sweet and perfectly completed our meal.
Service is a little slow but otherwise food was fine , quantity was good for the price.
