Reviewed 2 March 2016

It was a girl's day out for lunch, we decided on Mirchi as all in the Group did not try the restaurant.

in terms of location, I would think, is that the location is really bad for a restaurant, due to it being a busy road with no parking and no pick up or drop off space.

It was an empty restaurant, huge as ever - we could have played some ball games in there.

We ordered a couple of starters - veg platter tandoor and chicken seekh kebab . both were just ok, nothing to shout about and extremely dry.

For the mains, order the paneer makhani - just too sweet a dish, not sure if they added heaps of sugar to it! The Rogan ghost was good gravy, except the mutton could have been cooked more tender and it also had a weird smell to it. The chicken biryani was nothing great - just ok and the other minus point here is that it arrived cold.

I would give a full 5 points only to the Gajar ka halwa - it was amazing,

Service is pleasing, but they are so huge and if the restaurant is empty, you tend to be in a forgotten corner and continuously seek their attention.

Great place to hang out with friends. Friendly atmosphere and very accommodating staff. The desi flavors are wonderful here.
Basic food lovers must try the dal tadka and jeera rice. Even the dal khichdi is very tasty. The staff is also willing to prepare food to taste and that makes mirchi one of the the better places to eat. Besides the Indian cuisine, the place serves Arabic and Mediterranean food too. So pizza, kebbeh and mezzeh lovers can have a good time feasting me their stomachs.
Sheesha lovers have a fine reason to visit regularly. One wishes that there were happy hours to crown the wonderful offerings

I was rather surprised at the quality of the food for the price quoted for this deal. Frankly, I was a bit reluctant due to the fact that the deal value. Hence, value for money was impressive;

Quality of food as a whole on the other hand was also above expectations. It seems that the internet add some how doesn't provide a realistic and accurate reflection of the selection and actual tastes of the dishes offered, so that was also a second great surprise for our casual dinner.

The setting was cozy, simply yet comfortable; parking was ample and access to the place was relatively straight forward.

to Mirchi I say; Way to go .. :)
