Delhi is familiar with the concept of buffet. With the opening of outlets of Barbeque Nation, the grill on table concept caught on well. In this review we shall explore another place which has made a name for itself with the local community, Barbeque Company Jail Road. The first thing that surprises many first timers is the crowds that this place attracts.
Location of Barbeque Company Jail Road
The concept of barbeque is a win win situation for both the restaurant and its patrons. Flat rate, eat anything. Grill on the table is fun. Kids love it. So do adults, equally. Plus a steady stream of snacks from the kitchen. Chicken, fish, mutton sheek and the veg snacks too. Plus a complimentary drink or unlimited soft drinks. And if all that is not enough, a delicious spread of food and dessert items. Some restaurants offer different rates for different days of the week. Some have early bird discounts. And finally group events. Birthday parties, kitty parties and so on. There are block timings for lunch and dinner. So the restaurant gets time to prepare the food and presentation. Then it is only all about service. Barbeque Company Jail Road fits the bill of such a restaurant completely.
About the restaurant and the food
Barbeque Company Jail Road is located at the prominent location on the main road. There is a lot of traffic all day long on the busy junction. Plus parking space is very restricted. So the valet parking service offered by the restaurant is a big help. Since this place is crowded most of the time, table booking for groups is highly recommended. Timing is not critical, but reaching early helps. You get a choice of table and can dig into the snacks early. Once you step inside, someone guides you to your table, takes down your order and preferences and then the show begins. Sit back and enjoy some wonderful snacks and very very good service.
Music is on and with lots of people around, this is not exactly a quiet place. But conversation is possible, easily. We mostly enjoyed the fried fish and grilled prawns. Chilled chicken was good as usual. Small and juicy pieces. In the main course there was again three options of chicken, fish and mutton. Equal mix of chinese items and local food. Dessert options were also exhaustive. That includes the seasonal Gajar Ka Halwa which was well prepared. Plus the ice cream in the end. Prices are also very very reasonable compared to what variety and quality they are offering.
There is a bar in this restaurant too. There are a couple of separate section, but that space is very limited. This is one of the rare times, that we cannot write anything that is not good about this place. We have now marked this place are something which we might visit on a regular basis.
