Had heard about the yummy food at TGB Surat from NS– and ever since I heard that a restaurant by the same stable has opened in Vadodara, was wanting to try it out and finally did– yesterday!
After watching the 3rd episode of Satyamev Jayate– rushed to pick up my sisters family and reached TGB only to find 1/2 an hour waiting. Phew– I optimised the waiting time by picking up some groceries from D- Mart next door so it was’nt like a total downer.
Anyways, finally when we were ushered in, I was happy to get this awesome table. I mean it was sort of a private area and the ambience was amazing– rich and elegant. The Menu had a good mix of North Indian, Italian and Oriental cuisine.
For startes we decided on Dimsums and Paneer Kadai. Between the 5 of us, we also ordered 2 Mocktails (Mojito and Pinacolada), 2 soups and Lassi. The waiter came to take orders and I was pleasantly surprised to see him take the orders in his Tablet . I was like — Vadodara has arrived now! For the main course, we ordered Lasagnia, Enchiladas and Palak Khichdi (I know– weird combo but we had a senior citizen with us who does not have Conti, thats why :P)
Dimsums were average, Paneer Kadai was good, Mocktails and Soup also did not dissapoint. The Enchiladas and Khichdi were decent but Lasagnia was the best. The only dissapointment was the portion size. It was quite small–especially if you equate it to the prices they charge.
Overall — definitely a good place to check out. If you want to avoid the Sunday rush, go by 12.30
Its located in the Galleria Mall, (which houses D – Mart too) in Akota, Vadodara
