User Reviews for Club Ice Cube
My friends and I visited Ice for the very first time. It was lovely and set off by buildings so free from traffic and street noise. The tables were beautifully set and the combination of table spacing and light background music allowed for conversation and privacy. The entire staff was very courteous and attentive without being constantly intrusive. We arrived without a reservation and they were able to seat us for dinner. Our party of six had a wonderful experience here. A corner table seat will always give you an interesting people watching perspective. Otherwise, it's classy, and the decor suits the restaurant.
For the food, Apps: Tandoori chicken. Cripsy,fresh and prepared the way it should be. Chilly paneer: Classically done,fresh and tasty. Good with some cruncy black pepper on it. Chilly chicken: Very tender and flavorful. Excellent dish!
Dessert: Ice lounge passion seemed to be pretty standard. Amazing!
Overall it was another good dinning experience. Ultimate! Surely visiting again :D
We had gone to Ice Cube to celebrate our office team quarterly party this Friday. On the 3rd floor of GIP Mall, it is located almost opposite to Reverb. There were a few protocols to be followed such as tying of blue wrist bands mainly because we were quite a huge group. After they had put a check mark against our names, the guard finally let us inside.
The insides were dark just the way a discotheque should be. There were strobe lights and red and green lights which gave a feel of a party. We noticed that the dance floor was quite small but didn’t think that it would matter as there were only about 50 of us. There is also a huge screen where they were telecasting the match in extremely low resolution. I could bet it was about 144p and stretched to fit the screen and even before drinking people were unable to read the match scores.
When the DJ came, we were initially pretty excited and all of us rushed to the dance floor. Unfortunately, the DJ sucked and that is just putting it plainly. His idea of English songs was largely limited to Edward Maya while his concept of mixing and mashing other songs meant just stopping the remixes in between so that the audience could sing. It was evident that he specialised in no genre and was just up there playing songs like a novice. By 'up there', I literally mean that his stand was 10 feet in the air and we had to shout our requests to which his only response would be 'Baybeeeeeeeeeee!!!". When one of my friend requested for a Nirvana song, he rebuked him saying that the present generation doesn't listen to these songs. He should actually play in some wedding function maybe like that one character in Gangs of Wasseypur.
It was such a turn off that we decided to move to the couches for eating the starters. By this time some more people had poured in and had taken some of our couches but as most of us were dancing, we had ample space to sit. For starters there was Chicken Drums Of Heaven and BBQ Style Chicken for the non-veggies and Chilli Gobhi and Potato Wedges for the veggies. The BBQ Style Chicken was really good so the restaurant people made it a point to serve it only once and leave us craving for more. The Chicken Drums of Heaven was Fried Chicken with spices and a pinch of an extra salt. As we kept on asking for some BBQ Chicken the waiter kept on getting us more Drums Of Heaven which pissed us off to no extent. The Potato Wedges were pretty bland and the Chilli Gobhi was nothing praiseworthy either.
To cool off we went to take some drinks and then to the smoke room. The smoke room was totally crowded with about 13 people inside. When one of them opened the door to take a breather, the waiter asked him to get back inside as smoke would come out. If they were so bothered, they should have installed good suction like in airports so as to not cause any problem to the smoker himself. In addition to the small Smoking Zone, the drinks were watered down and my friends who drank neat and have a lot of experience say that the VAT69 which they are said to serve is actually Blender’s Pride.
Disappointed again, we returned to find that dinner was being served. Hoping and praying to God to make at least the dinner memorable, we got down from the first floor where the smoking room was, to find a totally new crowd on the dance floor. Our office staff held one half of the dance floor while the other was held by people who were part of another office team or an extremely large group of 30 members pushed on. Angry with the current situation, our Team Lead went to have a chat with the staff who gave false assurances that there was no other party. As if we were dumb enough not to recognize our own colleagues !!
Gladly, the dinner was slightly better - maybe because we had already been so disappointed on so many accounts that even the remotest average thing could cheer us up. There was Butter Chicken, Mutton Rara Gosht, Dal Makhani and Shahi Paneer. While I didn't taste the Shahi Paneer, the Dal Makhani was pretty good and creamy. The Butter Chicken was a bit too sweet but the spicy Rara Mutton Kheema made up for it. For desserts we had butterscotch ice-cream.
Later at the 11pm we were ushered out of the disco like cows on the field and it did feel pretty bad. While leaving they even tried to charge us more money by giving lame excuses. If there ever was a hospitality counter , I am sure it would have got a negative value. While the team bonding has become awesome since that day and we have really jelled pretty well at office, it is more or less due to the fact that all of us had a common thing to complain about - Club Ice Cube.
Not a Good Experience at all..!!
Been to this place to spend Wednesday Night. When you enter, you can see a pretty attracting Notifications on the White Board, highlighting that its only Couple Entry and Stag don't try your luck. However, its a Different Story Inside. You can see number of guys sitting on the corner couch and all are seems to be friends of Bar tenders, waiters and other staff members etc. So, if you are preferring the Only Couple place, this may be shocking from inside.
As per pricing, you need to pay 1k per couple and you will get passes to spend. The place is so damn expensive and not sure which all Taxes they impose (No Bill will be provided, All Black), so they took INR 315 for a Red Bull and Snacks costs are like as you are having it in a 7 Star Restaurant.
Waiters are drunk and you can very well feel the smell during placing orders.
DJ was so so and there was nothing good about it.
The Entry Managers will be wearing a nice suit but as soon as they will open the mouth, you will know the reality. Not even know, how to speak.
I am really not sure about the weekends, but the experience of weekday was worst...!! :(
I used to frequent this place when living near the area. Its location is the best part about the place, TGIP so you always have people thronging here. Anyway the actual has gone down in standards from 4 years ago. The space, the music, the food is all but average.
The Non - veg starters were decent, but that could be because I was hungry and I could have had a shoe if it was warm!1. Anyway, the mains were below expectation. The butter chicken for the mains was decent maybe for Chennai but in the land of the butter chicken it was quite a disappointment.
All in all go here if you do not have anywhere else to go.
I spent Valentine's Day here and I throughly enjoyed myself. The music was fine, the club was great albeit a little too crowded. The service was slow but I guess that goes with any club. The food was good too. I had the:
Chilli Paneer - which was very crispy and full of flavours
Tandoori Chicken - it was quite tender and I loved the crispiness outside
Brownie with hot chocolate sauce - was ok because the sauce wasn't that great
Kamikaze - My fave
Out of 5 i would rate this place 3.
