Ambiance and seating:
“Off The Grid” has it all. There’s outdoor seating for sheesha, a space for the dance floor with loud music and also a fine dining space for those who want to enjoy their meal. They can also house any day between 75-90 people easily.
Food and Drinks (Appetizers):
Firstly, we had a set menu for us with a lot of variety in appetizers right from chicken to pork to fish. Also a lot of variety in the drinks menu. Here’s the list mentioned below;
Black Scotsman: This drink just made my day. Served as whisky + caffeine, this was served in a stainless steel flask. Yes, that’s how you have your whisky. Taste wise it’s good.
Barbados Sunset: Served in a coconut colored and shaped glass, this drink has a fruity feel to it. This is a rum based drink and is sure on the sweeter side.
Blasting Injectors: It’s kind of a thing now to customize right? And to do it to the point that we get our drinks infused in a huge syringe. These injectors make this drink look really good. Taste wise decent.
Khichiya Nachos: Probably the best vegetarian appetizer. I liked this a lot. It’s perfect for a sharing plate and you’re bound to fight for it.
Tawa Fish: Too crispy and tasty. Probably there was less fish and more of crispness here. Not an issue with me as taste-wise it felt too good.
Spicy Jamaican Lamb Burger: Yes, they got it right. A Lamb burger usually does justice when the patty is made well and is juicy in the end. Also there should be no issues with eating it and chewing it too. It’s good.
OTG Tandoori Non Veg Platter: A platter like this ought to be ordered whenever there is a crowd of 3 and above. With a spread of chicken and seekh kebabs with green chutney and onions spiced, this can never go wrong. There’s a tasty, mildly spicy mix of kebabs here.
Murgh Kali Mirch Kukkad: One of the best dishes of the night. It had all the masala and the flavor for you to crave for more of it. More on the spicy side so order likewise.
Also, here are few more pictures for appetizers from “Off The Grid”.
Beer Bacon Risotto: The risotto here was amazing. The quantity of bacon too was very generous. Although the beer quotient overpowered the taste of the bacon, I still couldn’t get enough of it.
Steamed fish with soya ginger broth: Clearly the winner in this category. The steamed fish was made well and had a distinct taste. This went well with the rice and veggies served.
Chicken chettinad: This chicken gravy did a bit of justice as chettinad usually refers to more spice in the entire gravy. I could digest this one easily and maybe this can be made better next time.
King prawns ginger lemongrass: Firstly, I’m not a fan of prawns in general but the people around me enjoyed it a lot and I thought why not try it at least. Not a bad choice. It’s good.
3 Way baked yogurt: There are 3 layers to this baked yogurt. Commendable effort by the chef to get these 3 layers to be intact and with taste.
OTG Sunday Extravaganza: Really this one has a lot of taste, flavor and must remind you of a gadbad or a falooda with ice cream. But this Sunday extravaganza is more than that. Do try it out.
Finally, “Off The Grid” does leave it’s mark on the audience. I only wish them to work on their cocktails right from the alcohol content to the ingredients also. Sometimes it’s an off day and it’s understandable but if the drinks are not good, then it kind of ruins the day.
Also, with the variety they’ve offered, there will be a crowd here always and they’re here to stay for a long time.
