Le Charcoal is a multi cuisine restaurant located on the Kundanahalli – ITPL road next to the Cosmos Bus stop. I had been there with my family to gobble up some good food and believe me , I was not disappointed. Now lets go ahead with the review.
AMBIENCE : Unlike most AC restaurants the restaurant is spread across an open area with two type of seating arrangements – one in the garden area( mostly meant for couples ) and a wooden courtyard like structure which was meant to accommodate big groups and families. The dining area was clean and well maintained. I was a little disappointed with the washrooms and hand wash areas as they were shabby and untidy.
SERVICE : The restaurant service was excellent, infact one of the best services in this category of restaurants. We were greeted by the hotel staff, and they explained us about the food tastes and served the food happily. The service was very fast and we did not have to wait for a long time to get our food on our plates.
FOOD : The menu consisted of a wide variety of item for us to select from ranging from Chinese and continental food to Authentic Indian and Arabian cuisine.
Roasted and Curled Papad for Starters(Complimentary)
Chicken Hakka Noodles
Garlic Naan and Roti
Chicken Hot and Sour Soup
Egg Tadka and Dhaniya chicken
We ordered Chicken Hot and Sour soup and Fish Kebab as starters. The soup was spicy and flavoured well with garlic and chicken. Fish Kebab was soft and was served with Pita bread, mayonnaise and Hummus which was a very different combination for the taste buds unlike the age old green chutney. For main course we ordered Chinese as well as Indian Foods and both varieties tasted awesome. I want to specially mention the Le Charcoal special Dhaniya chicken which brought in a completely different flavour.
The biryani served here is Kolkata style biryani which was very different from the spicy Hyderabadi biryani served in most parts of the city. It was less spicy with the other flavours intact.
MUST ORDER : Chicken Noodles , Fish Kebab , Dhaniya chicken
PRICING : The prices are very reasonable near about 600 for 2 people. It’s a must visit if you want good food at a reasonable rate.
