Looking for the best buffet in Noida to stuff your gullet? Go no further..just book yourself a table at Pirates of Grill in The Mall of India. The Planet Social was in this fabulous new outlet last week. After trying out every possible options in Noida-land we were so happy to explore this place as it was more like a happy paradise of food overflowing and that too beautifully cooked and catering to a range of palates which is not so heavy on your pockets.
A stellar location in Noida which is The Mall of India, this place is insanely full as people have loved the spread of kebabs and grills that this outlet offers.
Serving an array of starters in veg and non veg you will be surprised at the conviction of the Chef Kunwar Marwaha and his team as you will not be served the same dishes every day. Trust me the variety will keep you glued to this restaurant.
We were eagerly waiting to begin, and we were served some really neat starters called the Amoose Boose that supposedly helps you build up your appetite, followed by nice crunchy Alio Cheese Kurkure , crispy fish in green apple sauce ( loved the crunch and saucy combination with fish so tender that melts in your mouth), not to miss the tangy Brazilian pineapple (see pics).
Knowing my love for sea food, Chef had made sure we were loaded with dishes like Bell-pepper prawn kurkure with Mayo dip (loved it), Amritsari Macchi, Malai Lehsuni Jhinga & some really awesome Jaipuri Fish Fry. I loved it and gorged on this awesome food with refreshing Mango Caprihina Mocktail. For all you carnivorous people, while you hog on the seek kebabs and the chicken tikkas, donot miss their special Batti Ka Murg.
I had good fun watching the LIVE Counter while the chefs were grilling and cooking in the tandoor right in front of you. Vegetarian grills and starters were also worth mentioning as you are not only left with Paneer & Mushrooms..You will also find dishes like Cheesy Salsa potatoes, Crispy Corn, Veg Dimsums (must try) and lots more.
By this time, our serious eat parameter had given us a challenge to conquer this place and try out maximum no of dishes. We did so and were almost full when we were so attracted to the lip smacking buffet laid out in front of us..pushing ourselves and trying out a massive main course comprising of Indian & Chinese dishes, We were stuffed to the brim. But I would say – keep more space for the starters and grills and desserts. It is worth every penny you spend here.
I just loved the dessert section – they had almost everything and so beautifully presented that I was totally floored. From Kesar Phirni to golden fried Zafrani Jalebi Rabdi (oh so gorgeous that left me drooling on it) to chocho nutty pie and so-delicious Mango Alfanso pastry, Hot chocolate brownie, coffee mousse, moong dal halwa…everything displayed so beautifully that I just could not help digging into each of their desserts !
We loved Pirates of Grill and I urge every Noida-ite and people in Delhi out there..this place is a steel and you must go and grab your seats at this amazing Buffet Paradise. Thumbs up guys.
