Pune is really growing in terms of restaurants. Every day a new place is coming up with a twist of their own and something new to offer to foodies.
And restaurants from all over India are trying their bit in Pune’s market. Similarly, this Bangalore based restaurant has recently opened up near the Hinjawadi IT hub, waked which really is a place to be for a restaurant.
Bonsouth is very easily accessible and is on the main road with shared parking available for both 2 & 4 wheelers.
It has very typical BBQ ambiance seating and few balcony tables available. Everything was maintained neatly with all the tags for main course and dessert.
They surely have some different varieties in food and servings.
We started off with some mocktails which included Peach Iced tea, cumin cocktail, coco mango refresher, palang tod and cucumber sqash. Out of these cumin based was something different and had very strong cumin flavour in masala cola. Apart from this coco mango squash had the very refreshing combination of coconut and mango crush which tasted delicious. Palang tod was just not my type as it had too much caffeine.
Coming to food we were served appetizer named curd atom bomb which was general masala chaat we have at street with only difference being this was served in between liquid nitrogen which created a freezing effect. Well, I must say a must try appetizer for sure.
For starters; we had Tandoori Tangdi Lajwab, BBQ Smoky Wings, Andhra Steamed Fish, Mutton Chapli Kebab, Grilled Garlic Prawns, Sri Lankan Chicken Boneless, Bonsouth Special Crispy Corn, Veg Cutlet, crispy Fries with Salsa on the menu.
I would really go for BBQ smoky wings as it had that proper blend of spice, well marinated and perfectly smoked to give it the taste it had. Also, fish is not to be missed. Crispy corns are always welcomed on the plate along with some fries and common who says NO to salsa.
I was stuffed with all the delicious starters in me hence I decided to hog on some veg delicacies. I tried veg Malaysian noodles which I found to be too oily while Pulav and Dal tadka were just outstanding and last but not the least Dum Biryani was too delicious that I went in for my 2nd share.
I also loved pink sauce pasta from the live counter.
Having less main course is just my way to keep place for some desserts. I mean who ignores dessert?
Paan Mousse, Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Cup Cake, Angoori Gulab Jamun, Elaneer Payasam, Ada Pradhaman, Mango gadbad, Shahi tukda, Assorted Pastries, Kesari Phirni, Parle G cheese cake, Lava Payasam cake these were up on the dessert counter.
Out of which I had Elaneer Payasam which tasted authentic south Indian style. Also I had their lava payasam cake which is their signature dish and man; this is not supposed to be missed. I just don’t have enough words to explain that extravagantly delicious thing.
Service & Cost:
Service was quick and staffs were humble and very courteous. Even cost wise this restaurant has very competitive rates and are pocket friendly.
Thank you Surya, manasi for the invite and team bonsouth for hosting us.
