I had visited the First Innings restraunt with 3 of my friends on 27/07/2021 for buffet lunch which we had booked through the nearbuy app. The food was great, the restraunt was clean, the ambience was also good.
Just the waiters could have been more...cooperative with us. We had to call the waiters and tell them the same thing for 3-4 times again and again, then only they repeated each starter food items.More
Have you ever thought of dining at a Stadium, let alone a buffet serving 60+ Dishes??
Well then, here it is!! THE STADEL, a 4 Star Hotel situated at Salt Lake Stadium/ Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan, is serving unlimited foods and Unlimited Mocktails and Alcohols...at their restaurant, FIRST INNINGS. Boasting of being a Multi-Cuisine restaurant, the buffet includes some delicacies, which is hard to find at other Buffet serving restaurants. It was not possible for us to try all the 60 Items, but the foods and drink that we tried were :
1) Blue Lagoon (Mocktail)
2) Crispy Corn
3) Hariyali Fish
4) Fish Finger
5) Cheese Corn Sandwich
6) Chicken Tikka
7) Crispy Baby Corn
8) Chicken Burger
9) Nachos Platter, which included:
- Garlic Bread Stick
- Mexican White Dip
- Tomato Salsa Dip
- Spicy Sour Dip
10) Papri Chaat
11) Doi Vada
12) Chicken Biryani
13) Tandoor Roti
14) Pan Fried Fish In Soya Chilli Sauce
15) Chilli Chicken Gravy
16) Fish Fry
17) Tandoori Fish Masala
18) Gandhoraj Murgi
19) Grilled Fish in Lemon Butter Sauce
20) Veg Dumpling
21) Veg Hakka Noodles
22) Mango Mousse
23) Chocolate Brownie
24) Chocolate Pastry
25) Chocolate Ice Cream
26) Gulab Jamun
But how was my experience?? Well, honestly I would rate 7.5 out of 10. I was simply blown away by the varieties on offering. Especially the Nachos, Burger and Sandwiches on a buffet were a pleasant surprise. The fish items were delicious, and so were the Veg items and desserts. But the drawbacks which could have been better were the chicken starter and biryani. Overall, I would say that at only 600, it's an absolute killer deal, and deserves a visit.
