Bhairavee Pure Veg Restaurant, Baner, Pune: Decor
The restaurant occupies the ground and mezzanine floors of a multi-storey building which houses a hotel. The exterior of the restaurant is impressively designed using red laterite stone. A large Madhubani painting frame at the entrance welcomes you to the restaurant. The ground floor is tastefully designed using ethnic wooden arches and lamps. The seating is comfortable and there are a few low seating tables where you can sit with your legs folded. The ethnic theme continues in the air-conditioned mezzanine section where the walls are adorned with beautiful Madhubani paintings.
Bhairavee Pure Veg Restaurant, Baner, Pune: Food
A glimpse through the menu reveals a lot of unique names given to the Indian dishes. In addition to the typical, run-of-the-mill dishes, the menu features some innovative ones using exotic vegetables and ingredients. We started with the broccoli and cottage cheese soup which was flavored subtly using typical Chinese ingredients. This clear soup was a great start to the meal.
On our server’s recommendation, we ordered two of the most popular dishes on the menu. We started with the delicious paneer kakuri kebabs, where a stuffing of minced paneer, spinach and spices is sandwiched between marinated cubes of paneer and grilled to perfection. We followed this with the scrumptious paneer mozarella vermicilli kebabs which were served beautifully in shot glasses.Imagining galouti kebab without mutton is impossible,but the veg galouti kebabs served here were a revelation. Minced vegetables mixed with the typical Lucknowi spices and shallow fried perfectly, this dish is a must-try. The spicy but tasty crispy baby corn chili, is also highly recommended. Fried baby corn tossed with fried noodles, soya sauce, chilies and peppers, this is an off-the-menu dish.
For main course we decided to stick to Indian fare and asked for the mildly spicy kofta dilkhush. Two large koftas made from paneer and potato and stuffed with dry-fruits are served in saffron infused yellow gravy. We paired this with butter rotis. The koftas were tasty, but the gravy disappointed us as it lacked flavor. It was great to see that the veg Nizami biryani was served traditionally in a clay pot sealed by dough to create dum. The biryani was mildly spicy exactly the way I like and the flavors were just right. Unfortunately the amount of peas and beans completely overpowered the taste and flavor.
We ended our meal with a tall glass of the rich mango mastani which was made specially by adding mango pieces and fresh mango pulp.
Bhairavee Pure Veg Restaurant, Baner, Pune: Plus & Minus
It is very difficult to stand out among the numerous multi-cuisine, pure vegetarian restaurants in the city. Bhairavee manages to do that with an innovative menu and extremely courteous staff. The tandoor and paneer dishes on the menu are absolute worth-trying. The ethnic decor is impressive, but the upholstery and curtains have a certain worn out feel which definitely needs to be looked into by the management.
