User Reviews for Mouthful's Flame Grill
After shopping at T.Nagar, we decided to go to Virudhunagar hotel for lunch but then since they were serving only meals and briyani, which we did not want to have since it was nearly 3 o'clock, we chose The Flame Grill. For bikes, the parking is sufficient but car owners would find it difficult. Seeing the name, I guessed their speciality was grilled food and they did have grilled items. For four persons, we ordered a lung chow chicken soup and for starters, we ordered crispy lamb and karachi grilled chicken. The soup and crispy lamb was ok but the karachi grilled chicken was not good. For main course, we ordered one pan fried noodles, manchatti mutton briyani and chicken fried rice with chicken gravy. The chicken gravy was horrible as the oil was floating over the curry. The quantity of the food was adequate and the manchatti briyani is definitely worth a recommendation. The pan fried noodles too was up to the mark. The orders take a minimum of 20 minutes to be served at your table so it is better if one orders everything in one shot.
Started off as Mouthful and converted to Flame Grill, the place has undergone a few changes; a lot for the better and a few that are not for anyone's benefit.
Earlier, the choices were very limited and catered to a general crowd without any such special mentions. My family dinner at 'Mouthful' consisted of a few non veg items, fried rices and biryanis. Nothing notably spectacular as such. Good food though. When I visited it later on two different occasions after the conversion, the menu had changed on both such instances. I really am confused as to what items are still continued and what is not. Checking the menu available online for assurance, so kindly bear with me if the same is not available anymore.
Ok, the first time of visiting 'Flame Grill', I found the food to be on varied levels of excellence. For starters, we ordered Crispy Corn Chili Pepper & Thai Roasted Honey Garlic Chicken. Both were exceptionally good; no complaints whatsoever. I was skeptical about ordering a Thai specialty here, but then they did do justice. Quantity was also ample. Moving on to the main course, I remember them having a combo at that time - a portion of Pot Biryani along with a Chicken accompaniment, which I don't believe exists anymore. So, the biryani was good; nothing exceptional, not too bad - a bit too much of fried onions and elachi in the rice were the drawbacks. My friend din't have anything to eat, but ordered a Falooda. I distinctly remember it to be terrible. That's fine, considering the basic flawed idea of a Falooda in this part of the country, Flame Grill wasn't anywhere far behind. For desserts, we had this three flavoured Ice cream with nuts and chopped dry fruits. Decent enough, without overdoing the additions.
Second time of visiting Flame Grill on the occasion of a friend's birthday, there was some heavy gorging to be expected as an all guys' dinner was in place. Me and a friend had our eyes on the Roasted Lamb's leg in their menu for a long time. Ordered one in Moroccon style, after listening to how every preparation listed there would be carried out. People, if you like mutton, then this is one thing you should NOT miss. Do go for it. Succulent meat, perfectly flavoured and smoked, marination and spices reaching to the bone, this was one dish we really savoured. Sadly, the size was lesser than what we expected. One Grilled Chicken, a couple of Shawarmas and one Masai Mara's Spicy Chicken were ordered too. The Grilled Chicken was good, though you get better elsewhere. The Masai Mara's Spicy Chicken was liked so much by two people in the gang, that we ordered another portion. To be frank, the flavouring was good; but the pieces were too crisp and small. Not so great as to order another serving. Shawarmas were decent, but I guess I can't say much because I have never liked Shawarmas much.
Now, since we had hogged on so many things, we thought we will go for a relatively lighter main course that consisted of 2 Chicken Biryanis, 1 Chicken Fried Rice and a few Idiyappams to go with the Mutton Roghan Josh. Biryanis were good; had a slight inclination towards the Tamilnadu Muslim biryani flavour. Fried rice was fried rice, nothing special. Roghan Josh was effectively spicy and was a particularly good gravy for the Idiyappams. Not very rich and laden, but the pieces were proper ones that din't make you feel ripped off on ordering a mutton dish like it usually happens in most places. No dessert was called for.
Waiters were very accommodating, responsive and ethical. The one thing they could do away with is treating customers to be ignorant of preparations and tastes, thus leading to their recommendations unnecessarily harping on over your preferences.
Decent family crowd, decent prices, decent portions. In a nutshell, a decent place that you can rely upon.
Visited the place at T-nagar on a Friday evening in a group of 8. Friendly service, quickly got us a table joined. Descent ambiance.
Started with a chicken sawarma and fiery grilled chicken. Chicken sawarma was soft and fresh with a great stuffing. And a descent grilled chicken I admit.
For the mail course ordered a corn fried rice which was good but still feel the quantity could have been better for the price. The quantity of Dhum biriyani was much less and average taste.
Deserts - you must not try here! My friends ordered falooda -poor ice-cream filled glasses with little fruis - totally a disaster. A crispy honey fries- was another bad pickup. The sizzling banana browine was the only descent desert.
One can visit the place for their Grilled items only.
i went here when india was playing against S.A and they won so happy memory here.
the biryani is good, you can ask the waiter for any item to be cooked according to ur taste n choice and under lesser rush hour they do it.
service is tad slow. waiters are mannerd but parking is a problem.
can visit not a must visit :)
