Old Times Sake

Old Times Sake
(2 / 5)

By Tara Bose Kapur

We went for a working lunch to this newly opened, music-themed café which had amazing reviews but we found it didn’t live up to its promise in terms of food or service. This has opened in place of Three Wise Men. It has a music theme and looks great from outside and has an interesting interior.

Here’s what we had

Chicken vada pav – interesting and nice, 2 chicken vadas stuffed into a pav with chutney and garnishes

Drunken paneer – stuffed with mint chutney and batter fried

Chicken Cacciatore – good helping served with arborio rice and garlic bread

Basil Chicken – good helping served with veggies and garlic bread

Cheesy goodness pizza – most disappointing lacklustre cheese thin crust pizza. Most un-cheesy. We didn’t finish it or even pack it to bring back to office.

The food took an inordinately long time to come and when the mains did arrive, we found one item was omitted. So we had to wait some more till it came. The menu, which looks like an LP, had dessert of the day, but sadly no dessert was available. We even had to ask for our water to be refilled. Unfortunate, as there were only three tables occupied.

The bar looked well-stocked. The English music was shuffling between genres from retro rock to hip hop and more!

Music themes ensure there’s something for everyone. They have set it up as follows:

Thursday- Bollywood Karaoke

Fridays- Retro English and Bollywood music

Saturdays- Commercial music

Mondays- English Karaoke

Access is 3 steps up – no railing
