Sigree Global Grill
If this accompanying photo had a sound track, you’d hear Angelo Colasso belting out “What a wonderful world”. If it had a video attached to it, you’d see the grill courses of the multi-cuisine buffet sizzling on the table (What you see in the photograph are only the starters). And all this in Powai, (which I love) to music (which I also love) and that too a buffet experience (which I normally dislike immensely,) but this one was a super surprise.
I zoomed up to the first floor and into a large, handsome, brightly lit restaurant”Sigree Global Grill”. It was packed and steadily getting more so. An open kitchen, a long buffet area, a bar and a delightful buzz. Bright tiles and space for a grill (fired by charcoal) on each table too. And then ofcourse there was music filling the air.
Only buffets for lunch and dinner, each with a staggering choice. The starters are served on the table, beginning with the choice of breads and dips and starters (okayish) and then wow! taking off garmagaram with grills, plump prawns, BBQ chicken, Terriyaki chicken wings. Even the veggie options of the softest of paneer and cilantro mustard
broccoli delighted. There was consistently good food, from the Mediteranean fish to the Harissa grilled chicken and the flavorsome murg dhaniya salan with biryani. The potato crusted Shepherd pie, fragrant Thai curry were happy surprises. Live pasta counter too. Check out the special pricing offers on alcohol and beverages.
My expectations for the Chinese courses were very high, since Sigree Global Grill is the new offering of Anjan Chatterjee’s “Mainland China” (Andheri and Sakinaka branches are my favorites) group.
Unfortunately the lemongrass seafood dumpling and the veg basil dimsum were not on par with the Mainland China ones. Though the Chicken Suimai made up for it. While the taste of the unique blackbean topping on the pizza was good, it’s crust was too thick. Doughy quesadilla. Gloopy risotto, overcooked Pindi channa and Stringy roast chicken, Desserts disappointed, except for the icecreams with the medley of dessert sauces, the rest were gelatinous. Though the nolen gur with sego was a refreshing surprise. No beef or pork served here.
As a rule, I hate buffets, but here’s a brand new buffet restaurant that is the exception that proves the rule. It not only uses quality ingredients but also cooks up many afresh (superb grills) and it has plenty for veggies. It’s mouthful of a name “Sigree Global Grill” does not even begin to cover the staggering variety of grills bakes steamed, pan fried, deep fried and more. The price per head per meal, inclusive of taxes, Lunch (Monday to Thursday Rs 550. Friday to Sun Rs
725) and dinner…, (Mon to Thursday Rs 745, Friday to Sunday Rs 845) no wonder it was packed when I swooped in for an early weekday dinner. “Congratulations” (set to music, ofcourse) Anjan Chatterjee and team, “What a wonderful world” (more music!).
