Spent a lazy Saturday lunching at The Butler and the bay leaf, a new place that is tucked in the lively lanes of Juhu. The decor of this beautiful place is a classic blend of colonial and Mughal Era with a contemporary touch to it. The antiques, chandelier and plants used for the beautification of this place restore the bygone era and at the same time adds eclectic vibes to it. A visual treat and a perfect Instagramable place that is soothing and pleasant to the eyes.
The hospitality here was a notch higher and the experience was very pleasant. All the staff guys here were very pleasant, cheerful and polite. Miss Soso who took care of us that afternoon was very good with her job. The best part of the service was that the plates were changed with every meal and water glasses were being fulfilled without even asking for it. If you want to enjoy a very pleasant experience with great service reach here by 1.00 pm as after 2.00 the place got very crowded and the service became a bit slow.
Talking about food this place is all about comfort and soul food with a reporter of authentic North Indian dishes. The flavours were intact and they have kept the dishes alive with their origin and not playing a lot with them. The presentation was good and the food was served hot and fresh. Also loved the brass cutleries used that looked so sophisticated and elevates our dining experience here.
The drinks here are very potent and the presentation made it even more appealing.
List of drinks and dishes we tried here –
Vodka with peach, green apple, passion fruit and bitters, absolutely loved it, not too sweet.
Paloma, tequilas, grapefruit syrup, rock salt, lime and soda, the perfect ones for my guy.
Kurkuri Bhindi, the best ones I had to date, couldn’t stop munching on it.
Mushroom galouti with Paratha, soft and succulent galouti with crisp Rafiki Paratha, amazing.
Dahi ke kababs, one of the best Dahi kababs I have had to date. The taste, texture and flavours were super.
Mini Chole Bhature, a cute one-bite appetiser that gave a perfect taste.
Ajwain paneer, this one was average as I felt that the marinating was not done perfectly, however, the paneer was soft.
Bhara Karelia, home-style barely karela that was tender and stuffing were delicious.
Dal makhani, slow-cooked and very well flavoured.
Bharwan baingan, one of my favourites
Hari Mirch pudina ka raita, chilled and refreshing.
Bakharkhani, amazing butty flavoured roti that paired well with sabzi
Khamenei roti loved this one too.
Death by halwa totally justifies the name. Drilled on this one. Angoori Gulab Jamun with kulfi and rabdi served in a platter that was so divine.
Croissant pudding with spiced rum flavoured Angoori mango rabdi. A unique dessert and Rum elevated this one to another level. Tastes really delectable.
Overall a fantabulous place to dine and a flawless experience with food and service.
