Tangerine: Restaurant Review



Though this restaurant is right around the corner from us, we never managed to make it there for a while. This past weekend, we finally drove by and decided to stop for lunch. The decor is very stark and not a lot of fuss. The restaurant is known for its sizzlers, and sure enough, they had a menu that boasted about 15-20 kinds of sizzlers.

We ordered some bruschetta with garlic bread and crab bisque for our appetizers. The bruschetta was fabulous. Tomatoes were fresh and there was just a hint of basil and the garlic bread alone might get us to come back to this restaurant. My husband didn't enjoy his bisque at all.



For our entrees, I ordered a vegetarian Creole sizzler which wasn't pretty to look at but quite tasty. It didn't taste of anything Creole, but overall was still good.



At about Rs.100/ a head, I thought it was a good deal for a quick lunch. Not bad for a restaurant around the corner.

Hi Arundathi,
That was a nice little review. I've been to the place once as well (for a friend's birthday party). Found it a nice, clean and quite place to be in.

Liked the food as well. We had a 3 course meal

Do try out a multi course meal and post your reviews. Would be interesting to know the feedback from your hus and kid as well. Would add more variety to the blog. :)
