I was getting late at work and did not have time to get back home for Iftar and then I saw my friend's post on Facebook about a special Ramzan buffet at Triana. I asked a couple of friends to join me and off we went to get a taste of their Haleem with big hopes, large spaced tummies and needlessless to say, some hunger as well.
We settled ourselves in a corner table and the ambiance struck me as neat and spacious. A waiter with a smile greeted us and confirmed if we were there to break fast and promptly brought us a bowl of fruits and some lime juice and said that the 'kanji' was on it's way. We broke fast and had the cold kanji and I have no idea why it was cold. They have arranged a place on the first floor for prayers, which is a good thing.
We then went on to the buffet and started off with the shorba, which I really liked. The next stop was Haleem, which I could not help but comparing it with fishermans fare, which I know is not fair, but yeah, the Haleem was decent, but not upto the mark. The mughalai parota was pretty average, while the mughalai rice and mutton gravy were pretty alright, not great. The dessert, the Khubani ka meetha, was served with ice cream which I think is a bad idea as it should be served with cream and the ice cream was overwhelming, but if you managed to taste the meetha, it was actually good.
The buffet was priced at rs. 290 nett. Service was decent and i had no complaints. I wish the food was a little hot as most of them seem to be getting cold very quickly, as quick as taking it out and putting it on the plate. All in all,it was alright for me,but not good enough to go back within one month.
Triana is located in Gopalpuram.
