I've been here just once and my experience was pretty good. The ambience here is subtle, although they could play some better music. The food was amazing.The staff had a good knowledge of both the food and the wine menu, service was good as well. Everyone should try their chicken steak with lemon wine sauce, one of the best dishes I have ever had.
Blanco has always been my classic favorite ...went back recently, after ages and beyond impressed with their new menu. Three pepper steak was mindblowing and I loved how well the waiter followed my instruction to get me my steak exactly how i wanted....Mediterranean Salad and Chicken Salt and Pepper are a must try ...the new live sushi counter is decent and doesnt fail to impress either!
been to blanco twice as they have happy hours till midnight...wit the happy hours it doesn't quite burn a hole in ur pocket n becomes affordable. except for the pizzas the food is strictly okay. hits and misses mostly as they Try to experiment wit a wide variety on d menu. service can definitely do wit some pulling up. the urban chic look that the decor was aimed at isn't quite there (blue lighting ??? on the forever empty dj console where serving trays were stacked) n is out of sorts wit the family type kind of crowd and 5 year old pop hit songs they play.
Still don't know why I went to this place. It was randomly selected after a google search while shopping at Khan Market. But it sure did blow a hole in my pocket. Pint of beer costs abt 450/- (it wasn't even properly chilled) while other good places are charging 200/- at most (during the afternoon). Perhaps it is the snob value for which we ended up paying. Food though is good, portions are smallish and service is patchy. Nothing much to go back to.
I dont know what's wrong with this place. People like it and write many great things about it but I dont know, whenever I visit this place I end up paying that kind of money in which I would have been sloshed had I been in route 04.
The place though is priced a bit on the higher side has a great collection of booze and serves great cocktails. Their beer menu is also amazing.
The only disappointing thing here is their food. Though they make great pizzas and great non veg appetizers as chicken satay and lamb kebabs. But the portion sizes are way too small. The biggest ripoff are their platters, the cost a bomb to just fizz out the moment they arrive on your table. Though they score big time on the taste meter but the small portion leave you asking for more.
Overall a place you visit when route 04 is too crowded,and you are in the mood for some more relaxing atmosphere.
