It was a Sunday, me and my friend was in Indiranagar for some shopping. Once we were done it was around 2PM, starving and bit exhausted after walking up and down the store, we decided to have lunch from one of the restaurant in the neighborhood itself. Since we were already in the 100ft road, Pasta Street seemed quite convenient and it had a dedicated parking in the basement. Yes! There is a decent parking area underneath but, I didn’t like the attitude of the security staff. He waited for me to get off from the vehicle and once I started walking towards life he approached me and asked to park on the other side.
Since we didn’t check Zomato prior to our visit, me and my friend had no idea about the place. For a second, we thought it’s buffet then, upon asking, we came to know we can have ala-carte as well. Restaurant was jam packed and we had only a 2-seater seating option to choose from. The table was ok, could have been bigger. Lucky for us, the table right next to us got free and we shifted to the 4-seater table. The staff were friendly and helpful during all this. The floor manager was quite friendly and he was seemed down to earth, even during the rush hour. The ambiance was good, there was both indoor as well as outdoor seating. The outdoor seating will be nice to have a wonderful dinner. For day time, I would prefer the indoor seating here at Pasta Street.
The buffet will cost you Rs 1100+/person and the spread had almost every item from the menu. We went with the ala-carte option as we didn’t want to do a heavy lunch. The food ordered were Cream of Broccoli soup, Lychee Wonders, Spicy Devil Drink, Pomodoro Tuscany Pasta and Choconut Brownie.
The Cream of Broccoli Soup was really soothing and it had the freshness which almost go in par with the name. Nothing special about it and if you would ask me, I have had better one from Glen’s Bake House, Lavelle Road.
I was all excited about the drinks especially the Spicy Devil Drink! OMG! This is a MUST TRY of Pasta Street. When Kiran, my bestie and a hard-core foodie, pointed out this drink in the menu I was bit dubious. The description read; a hint of tabasco sauce, guava juice and fresh lime juice. Me and tabasco sauce had a kind of bad experience in the past but, when it comes to food you can forgive the mistakes. It was delivered with two green on the sides almost as if it looked like horns. There was salt on the sides where your lips touch. It almost resembled like the times we have the tequila shots. This signature drink of Pasta Street, the Spicy Devil Drink, is one of the best I have ever had in terms of both uniqueness and variety.
I had Lychee Wonders, in comparison with Spciy Devil Drink, was a normal drink. There was crushed Lychee, lime juice topped with soda and sprite. The drink had that fuzz which at least made me happy to gulp it down the throat.
The Pasta we ordered was Tuscany Pasta, a new addition to the menu. Our choice of Pasta was spaghetti. It was served, along with a garlic bread. The quantity seemed quite enough for 2 serving. But, if you are really hungry, may need to consider ordering something else too. The pasta was topped with in-house tomato sauce with capers, green olives and paneer paste. Vegetable includes green broccoli, baby corn and fresh basil. It was delicious.
For dessert, we had choconut brownie. A simple brownie served hot, topped with walnut and with a single scoop of vanilla ice cream. It was delicious but, the quantity seemed very less. An extra layer of brownie would have made everyone happy.
The service could have been improved. In our case, it seemed like there was only one guy, taking order in our side, for taking order and he has to cover every table. Due to rush hour, he had missed our dessert order and we had to wait a bit long. These things happen when it is bit crowded but, I wish they could do something to avoid such confusion in future. Overall, it was a great time we had at Pasta street and looking forward to visit this place soon again.
