Spice Lane Resto Bar- Mulund

On this particular Saturday when "chilling out" was higher up on the agenda than eating I decided to try out the Spice Lane Resto Bar at Mulund west. This place is very close to Nirmal Lifestyle Mulund and right next to Dmart. Finding a good parking spot around is a bit of a challenge. Luckily a vacant spot was found where I squeezed in my car and thanked the universe. I like the little lawn they have maintained at the entrance inspite of the space crunch. The receptionist guided us to our table upstairs. Guess they have a smaller seating area downstairs as well. But I recommend you choose the earlier option and why shall follow.

The extensive multi cuisine menu was impressive but I wanted to eat light. Starters was to be my lunch for the noon and so we asked the waiter for his recommendation.We went with his suggestion of the Murg Nimboo Tikka. These are chicken pieces marinated in hung curd with just a hint of spices. Char grilled in clay oven and served with a lemon slice on each piece, the chicken is succulent  and non greasy.  No wonder this is their star starter. Here's Murg Nimboo Tikka for you.

I was enjoying the food and the ambience added to the whole feel good factor. And now to why I insisted you choose the seating upstairs earlier. They have this glass wall with water flowing on it which not only looks beautiful but also has an amazingly soothing effect. With some chilled beer and our table next to this glass wall, I was having a lovely laid back weekend noon lunch.

Perfect weekend noon
The delicious Murg Nimboo Tikka enticed us into ordering something more. So I went with the Surmai Tawa Fry. The dish had two large fish pieces which were shallow fried. The fish was soft, fresh and well cooked. I liked that it was a bit spicy but they could surely use less oil. Overall thumbs up for this one.

The service is a little slow but attentive. The food was delicious and after the impressive starters, I am sure to come back to try out some more dishes. A meal for two should cost approx INR 900 (without alcohol) The ambience was good and the decor lovely. And just incase you are planning a date then they do have candle light dinners on Thurdays. I had a good time here and noticed these pretty things as I walked out. 

Doesn't it remind you of Mughul architecture?
