User Reviews for Privilege Punjab
We were recently here to celebrate the wedding anniversary of a friend, and the minute they got us seated I thought to myself oh Lord where have we come.
The interiors are so dull and gloomy, so dark and dingy, it looks like a cheap beer bar. I wasn't too happy with what I saw, and considering it was rajouri garden, this place was deserted. There was just one man sitting alone with his bottle of beer. Nevertheless we sat, and considering that we were technically the only ones interested to have a proper meal, it took them a while to even hand over the menus to us.
We ordered the tandoori chicken and the non veg platter and fresh lime soda's for starters. The starters did arrive at a decent pace but were pretty average. Nothing really exotic or exceptional about them.
For mains we ordered dal makhani, butter chicken boneless and some naan. Daal was nice, butter chicken was average too. Only thing was that portion sizes were too small and the server also did not suggest we order a certain no of portions as per the no. of persons we were, how unprofessional!
All in all, a very average meal! I don't think I am going back again to this place
Privilege Punjab has gloomy and unwelcoming exteriors. The lighting is pretty dingy and so is the crowd hanging around. The staff member who is supposed to reserve tables is never there at the entrance and so just about anyone can walk in. Not that it matters, for the restaurant is more than just vacant. It is deserted. With no sign of any customer whatsoever, the restaurant switches the TVs and the air conditioners off. After all, the running costs would definitely be double of what it earns. Unless, people secretly party here. Ah, no that's not possible either because PP is understaffed. And the one server who was hanging around to take our order was not interested in taking it, anyway. Gloomily, he wrote "dry manchurian" and brought in spring rolls. No connection. But maybe, in his world of loneliness. Oh, the glasses had a layer of dust on them and the music that started playing 30 minutes after we entered was pretty old too. Oh no, wait. The disc was old, the music could not be heard. The lemonade was so warm that it gave me heartburn and they don't have most of the alcohol on the menu. The only way to save yourself is to order a few cans of beer and gulp them down.
For all of the above, you'd have to pay a bomb. Quite fair, right? For 2 beers and one starter which they didn't mess up, it cost Rs. 1500. Plus, the lazy waiter expected a big tip. He kept insisting that there's no service charge (even though there was!). If you are kind enough then he'd just slam close the door on your face and your nose would bleed. No problems there.
Must visit, if you have nothing better to do. Great fun. It's a real privilege.
If you want to see how a restaurant goes down the quality ladder then one can visit this restaurant nowadays. I have been to this place many a times in the past and have thoroughly enjoyed the meal with their typical Mughlai / Punjabi taste. The dal makhni and the butter chicken 'were' superb. I use the tense "were" since now they are not even a shadow of the past flavors.
The restaurant offers a "lavish" buffet for as low as Rs. 299 for veg and Rs. 399 for non veg items. Now you say, what is the catch then?
On one Sunday afternoon, we decided to have some rich Punjabi food and entered the restaurant. We did the normal routine of checking the spread before sitting at the table and the food items looked as pale as ever. It looked as if the sun rays had come in and sucked out all the juices from the food.
Ok guys, the best (read worst) part was yet to come. We started to move out when we heard the manager calling out (in Hindi) to the wait staff that at least stop the only customers we have..!!!
Try the other options available in malls near to this place. Very disappointing indeed.
