Sea Spice - Spice and Nice!

After a day of obviously happy intent after reckless shopping, my family stepped into Shetty-Gardenia for lunch.
The place is welcoming with spacious interiors and nice wood work. The gigantic LCD stuck on the wall with the cricket on sure caught my husband’s attention. The stairway close to this leads you to the first floor where we have the Sea Spice restaurant. The glass door opens up to a mid-sized hall which fits about 15 tables. It mostly had family crowd.
We took one of those circular perfect dining tables close to the entrance. There was a bar counter close to our table with a few glasses. The place has some nice maroon drapes against cream walls. The glass work has designs of cute fishes defining the specialty they serve.
Soon after we took our seats, the menu was given and water was served. The menu offered quite an assortment.
We chose to have the Rawa and Masala fish fry. The waiter suggested we take ‘anjal’. The Rawa fry was crispy and yum, the Masala fish was luscious but way too spicy, with lemon, it did taste better. 2 portions for the 5 of us wasn’t really sufficient. The other starter included Baby corn satey which was better than the fish. The thick gravy that the corn came with was rich and absolutely delicious!
My sister and I are buffs of Neer dosa and didn’t think twice to order. The Neer Dosa with chicken muchi ghassi was our next order.

They came pretty quick but the taste was unsatisfactory. The neer dosa was so stuck and cold, the Chicken curry surprisingly bitter!
We shared our feedback with the attendant, he promptly took it in, heated the curry and probably salted and diluted it. We weren’t happy then either. The second neer dosa order was hot and better.We chose to have rice and ordered Biryani, the quantity was generous. The rice was tasty and the curd raitha they teamed it with made a good combination.

One of the thoughtful waiters came back to us to specifically find out why we weren’t happy with the chicken muchi ghasi, on telling him, he got another curry. This was a coconut based one and tasted a lot better.
The service though not polished is considerate.
The cutlery is very comfortable and classy.
It was my treat and so when I checked on the bill, it surprisingly did not have the amount for the chicken curry!
The waiter also restated the point that they did not add on because we were not ok with the taste and they agreed too.

On reading the experience of other reviews on Burrp, it definitely looks like the guys at the restaurant proactively correct their awry moves!
Well, as long as they tastefully keep their customers satisfied they would never be forgotten!
