Are you one of those staunch non-vegetarians who runs in the opposite direction from anything green? Most of those who know me will certainly agree that the above describes me perfectly. I had been hearing good things about Fly Kouzina ever since it opened via friends and fellow food enthusiasts , however because its vegetarian I sort of never got around to going there. Then one day I received a lovely invite from them for a Bloggers Meet Up but regretfully I already had a prior commitment so that fell through. I finally made it a couple of weeks back and was truly surprised at the way my evening turned out.
If you have a thing for airplanes then you’re going to warm up to this restaurant immediately. The attention to detail from the personalized Boarding Passes with seat numbers printed, to the seating, to the crew uniforms on the service staff, to the simulated LCD windows to enjoy the “view” while you dine all seriously enhance your experience. Service is warm and efficient and fairly quick even though the place is chock a block full on a week night.
We started our culinary flight at Fly Kouzina with a Strawberry Margarita Mocktail and a Strawberry Mojito Mocktail and Bharwan Firdosi Tandoori Aloo, Brocolli Corn Dumplings, Cheese Balls and Malai Paneer Tikki all of which were seriously delicious. The Malai Paneer Tikki was brilliant and I loved it and was my pick of the starters. Then we tried the Pesto Cheese Shaslik and a Risotto both of which were nice. This was followed by the Indian Mains we ordered Paneer Butter Masala , Pindi Channa , Dal Makhani and an assortment of Naan and Roti. The Indian mains were excellent and I really liked the Paneer Butter Masala which was very well made. We ended this delicious journey with Gulab Jamuns that were served piping hot and hit the perfect sweet spot.
The restaurant is actually in two sections, the one where we were seated had interiors like an airplane and the other was a lounge section themed with photos of aircrafts, model airplanes, a large wooden propeller and so on.
I really enjoyed my experience there and surprisingly enjoyed my dinner thoroughly and certainly did not miss the absence of non-vegetarian items. I would happily go back anytime and look forward to my next visit soon. And for my vegetarian friends this is a place you simply cannot afford to miss out on. An ideal destinations for a delicious meal with family and friends.
Great work Team Fly Kouzina ! Rishi Singhal and Mohit Harlalka, the two young men behind Fly Kouzina …. Hope this is the first of many successes for you both. I enjoyed talking about our common passion for food.
