The experience was good and with its location I expect it will do well despite three other Asian offerings at High Street Phoenix, writes Tara Bose Kapur
TYGR is the new Modern Thai Bar & Grill and has replaced Rivers to Oceans (R2O). A well-designed contemporary, classy space with a large selection of wine on display and a semi-circular bar. A Thai menu with some American popular items, we chose to have Thai.
Brought to us by Zorawar Kalra of Massive Restaurants, one expects a lot in terms of innovative serving style. We weren’t disappointed.
We started with:
Soft Shelled Crab Salad (would have been great if the dry masala type “seasoning” had been less overpowering)
Scallop Carpaccio – outstanding
Snapper Spud Distinct Bagna Cauda
Pork Belly, Lotus Flour Bun – interesting
For mains, we had
Thai Green Curry with Prawns – good
Basil Fried Rice
What I liked:
Good space and ambience
Helpful suggestions and personalisation for an allergy-prone diner
Level 1, Palladium Mall, Senapati Bapat Marg, Lower Parel, 12 noon to 1 am
Reservation recommended 9136921735 / 022 49735025 but walk-ins may get to snag a table too
Price: Approx Rs 1400 per head without alcohol
Rating: 4 stars
