Bayroute at BKC, the most sprouted restaurant in Mumbai
The minute you enter Bayroute it feels as if you have stepped into some middle eastern country. The Arabic vibes are reflected at every step in the restaurant. Just loved the way they have used Fanous to light up the whole place. The beautiful Ramadan calligraphic script on the Fanous is so mesmerising.
It exudes such warmth with bright yellow and orange hues that was so soothing to the eyes. Beautiful blinking lanterns also adds up to the beauty of this place.
Coming to the service, the whole experience was very pleasant. Hospitality was warm and everyone from restaurant hostess to the servers were polite and courteous. They guided us with the food and drinks selections and also gave us some knowledge of the dushes and cuisine.
Well, if you think I am all gaga about ambiance and service, then hang on, the best is yet to come. So let’s talk about drinks and food,
For drinks we tried these 2 Mocktails
Reyhan, and lemon mint, both these were super refreshing and so fresh.
Qahwan smoke tini and smoking old fashioned were the 2 cocktails that were very potent and really unique in its own way.
The food here is a classic example of authenticity meeting flavours. The best dishes come on your table with authentic flavours from the Arab region.
All middle eastern dinner is incomplete without the mezze. So we started our dinner with Hummus Bayroute, Muhammara served with warm pita and farm fresh salads and picked vegetables. This is exactly the way it is served here and it has been by far the most delicious mezze I have eaten. The quality, quantity and the textures were excellent, highly recommend this here. Later on we tried raclette potatoes. Lebanese nachos, that were so delicious and lip smacking.
For mains we had cheese and Zataar Manakeesh, which was superlative in all ways. Perfect baked middle eastern bread loaded with cheese on half side and Zataar spice on the other side. Will recommend this one.
The winner dish was Ispanak Mantar Pide, Turkish bread perfectly baked with delicious stuffing of spinach and mushroom. Relished this Dish a lot.
Well, our memorable meal ended with the most delicious, delectable and incredible desserts,
Baklava and Lotus drama. What a way to end our dinner here!!
Overall super experience here and will love to go here again. Full marks for food, ambiance and service.
