Burnt Garlic is a cafe-cum-restobar that opened last year on the ground floor of Priya Cinema. In fact, the restaurant is owned by the Priya cinema management and hence, there was a lot of buzz when it opened. The launch day saw quite a few celebrities coming in. Everyone was talking about the interiors designed by a famous city scenographer. Curtains of rolling pins, wall art with fabric plates, patchwork embroidery upholstery, 70’s disco lighting, live gigs. The ingredients were all there for a successful run. The reviews however were not too flattering. I heard from people that the food was overpriced and not up to the mark and hence I stayed away from visiting the place. Nearly four months later, everyone I knew was talking about Burnt Garlic. They were raving about the food, the drinks, the new menu and the slashed prices. I knew I had to visit soon and I did a few weeks back.
