A Disappointing Experience

I feel compelled to write this review ( I even acquired a mouthshut ID to do so!) having read the last review posted on the Lodhi Garden restaurant. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Having just eaten a highly unforgettable meal there ( unforgettable for all the worng reasons) I felt that a place with a brand value such as the Lodhi should be exposed when it slips horribly.

The meal was a disaster from the word go. While the ambience was pleasant enough, though in retrospect it was the best part of the meal, with a 'fresh' juice ( they had only sweet lime available from a long list in the impressive looking menu) was rotten. It was thankfully returned with a lame excuse that since it was summer, the fruit may have got crushed and gone bitter. the fact is, it tasted rotten.

The mezze platter was disappointing with bland dips ( and I make my own hummus etc. so I know what it should taste like) and little white buns instead of pita bread.

The salmon was edible, though the sauce that came with it was oversweet.

the vine leaves ( spelt 'wine leafe' in the bill) had some kind of over sweet fruit stuffing.

What took the cake ( literally) was the dessert: the chocolate mousse recommended as the special dish was heavy and lumpy and worse than what would be served by a fast food joint .

At each step, the waiters and the cooks were asked about the dishes and lame excuses were offered. One just kept going thinking that it had to get better.

The inflated bill ( one was paying to be disgusted) came without the feedback form ( it had to be asked for) and the manager merely offered "better food next time". Well, there shall NOT be a next time.

In short, I felt cheated, with a bad taste in the mouth. Wonder how long they can live off their reputation and the advantage that their location gives them?
