Went to visit the recently opened TGI Fridays outpost at Linking Road, Bandra. Was pleasantly surprised to walk into a large spacious restaurant with a large bar, pool table and the signature TGI Fridays ambience.
We were frequent visitors to the Palladium outlet which has closed, so was happy to see a new outlet.
We went for lunch and enjoyed the openness, light and the surprising greenery through the glass frontage! The mall in which it’s located has Starbucks and many vacant stores.
Here’s what we had:
- Classic Tenderloin Steak – Choose either medium or large portion. We chose medium which was good for a working lunch. The steak isn’t big so if you want a large steak go for the large. They offer you a large choice of sides, we went with the cheesy mashed potatoes (yummy) and fried onion rings.
- JD Tennessee Chicken Burger – Quite a whopper! With fries, good for chicken-lovers
- Parmesan Crusted Chicken – Two chicken breasts with a homemade sauce, fettucine on the side and a refreshing mozzarella and tomato salad.
TGI Fridays has a buzzing atmosphere. Good music. People playing pool.
Good service, huge portions, really well done sides which accompany the meal, lots of drink offers – Low-calorie cocktails… love that!
With its Happy Hours and Friday Rewards and chilled=out atmosphere, it’s very popular with the youth.
Overall a good experience. Go for the ambience, the generous portions and the huge and inventive drinks menu.
