Barbeque Nation is the place for all the tandoori fans who love there smoked succulent meat with a glass of wine or beer. This place offers an array of flavours on a single palette.
The buffet only restaurant is family oriented and is an equally happening hangout place for youngsters too! As the name suggests, the restaurant offers some engaging BBQ items, right on your table.
With their specially designed tables to hold up a BBQ grill right in the middle, it becomes fun to hold up your favourite skewers of chunky meat/vegetables, laced with wholesome marination and grill it just the way you like it; on the red hot charcoal pit.
The BBQ also comes with some extra marination flavours like black pepper, lemon and Japanese dip.
For the starters, barbeque nation serves a variety of Indian kebabs (Veg and Non-veg) and sea food. Chicken Kalmi Raan was our personal favourite along with Gulabi Mutton seekh kebab. The meat was well cooked and succulent and a bit tangy and spicy which satiated our taste buds. Fish Jhangri and Coastal BBQ prawns were quite tempting too!
We also recommend vegetarians to miss the traditional Paneer Tikkas and try out their grilled vegetables and Cajun Spiced baby Potato skews.
Most of the Barbeque Nation outlets in India offer cocktails and heavy alcoholic drinks. The bar serves refreshing cocktail and mocktail recipes that balance perfectly with their buffet offering. To curb our rich platter, we opted for their signature Jal Jeera Mojito, which is a must try for its digestive goodness.
Post a delectable start with BBQ on the table, The Barbeque Nation offered a wide variety of the main course items, which were self-served. While some of the their signature dishes remain the same throughout the week ,there are few add-ons and menu changes that they offer on a daily basis. We absolutely enjoyed trying out their freshly made Pasanda Paya Rass , which was a Ramazan delicacy . The Barbeque Nation, Worli should be visited especially for its Nihari Gosht, that stood out as our favourite amongst all the other menu items that were offered. The rich taste of this goat meat delicacy was marinated in a spicy dip and was cooked on low heat for a long time. In their vegetarians section, Paneer Lababdar and Mirch Mushroom were our personal favourites from the entire menu.
The Barbeque Nation also includes some additional food items, to celebrate important occasions. The time we reviews their menu was during Ifat dats. Call us lucky, because not only they had some added sweets for iftar; but they also installed a live counter for Iftar special delicacies like Gurda-Kaleji which was cooked to perfect.
Coming to desserts, it was indeed worth balancing the starts and the main course, since BBQ Nation masters in the baking section too!
Freshly baked on a daily basis, their buffet menu offered sweet treats like Kiwi Cheese cake, fresh fruit Gateau in the continental section.
In their Indian sweets menu, they offered hot Anguri Gulab Jamun served with Shahi Tukda( Sweet Bread with Rabdi), creamy Phirni and a fridge full of different flavoured kulfis.
Celebrating the holy month of Ramazan, BBQ Nation offered 6 types of Kulfis that came with an array of toppings to choose from.
As far as the service and hospitality is concerned, the staff was very warm, quick to respond and the butlers were always available to guide you through their buffet and barbeque arrangements. One can bring over family and friends for birthday or anniversary celebrations here, as the staff makes it more memorable by singing birthday song live for the audience.
