For the last week or so I have seen ads for the Great Indian Restaurant Festival both in newspapers and in hoardings across the city. As most of you will know, I am a big foodie and seeing that there was 50% off at top 1000+ restaurants, I immediately downloaded the app as soon as I got home. The UI was simple and smooth and within a few seconds I was scrolling through a huge list of restaurants. Since I was craving for Tex Mex, I looked up Chili’s in Express Avenue and to my delight found that the 50% offer was there too. It was 50 INR per head to book for the table but considering that I will be halving my bill with the Dineout app, I didn’t mind paying it.
So in the evening, a couple of friends and I went to Chili’s and even though it was crowded, we got seated without a fuss. The restaurant is located in the Express Avenue Mall, Royapettah. Even though it is in a mall, it is quite huge and spacious. And unlike normal restaurants, they have a bar area where you can get a variety of mocktails and smoothies. The staffs are courteous and if you’re a first timer at Chili’s, they are great at recommending dishes. As we have already been there several times before we started ordering right away.
For starters, we decided to order the Triple Dipper in which we chose the Southwestern Roll, Boneless Chicken Wings and Chicken Crispers. They were all delicious but the Roll stood out as the best for all of us. Next we got BBQ Chicken Salad which not only looked good but also was awesome especially with the shredded smoked bacon. Next we moved onto the Chipotle Chicken Fresh Mex Bowl and Club Chicken Tacos. For the main course, we went with the Philadelphia Melting Cheese Steak and Spicy Smoked Pasta with Grilled Chicken. All of them were fresh and delicious. To compliment the food, we ordered Watermelon Margarita, Classic Mojito, Berry Delight and Molten Chocolate Chunk.
Overall, it is a great place to bring your friends and family for good Tex Mex food and if you are planning to go there, book through the Dineout app or http://www.dineout.co.in/girf and enjoy flat 50% OFF on food and drinks.
