Restaurant Review – Dishkiyaoon, BKC
Dishkiyaoon, an all day bar-diner at Mumbai’s Bandra Kurla Complex, is a bright garden room with quintessential garden indoors and bright décor. By the same folks of the popular watering holes Kino Cottage, Copa & Sante. Designed by Clement Desylva , Dishkiyaoon is modelled as an unpretentious yet unconventional space, a veritable cocoon that brings the elements of outdoors inside, amidst the concrete and hustle bustle that’s synonymous with the business district.
You’ll find a phone booth at the doorway with charging points, carnival awnings, money plants, swings, carousel horses and, a bathtub in the middle for no reason. The garden room feels cozy with a raw bar, swing seating’s, and great drinks.All of which is quirky and good, maybe something unusual. Just like having a charging trolley that can be pulled up to any point and a basic requirement in today’s day and age of smart phones and IPad.
To Eat & Drink
The small but sophisticated menu of bar nibbles, flatbreads, and main course will keep us coming back some of which, like the Daliya Khichdi with Mirch ka Salan, could be in our case. Other stand-out dishes include the Paneer Pierogi, and the Vada Pav Salad, which is a brilliant take having a deconstructed version of the most famous local bite “vada pav”– who could have thought of that? The menu also includes gluten-free, vegan, and good-carb options just in case you want to go healthy. A decent drinks menu, and the cocktails here include a Dairy Milk Martini, and a thandai-and-cognac-based Bombay to Banaras, but our favorite that night was the Triple M, which is a fair combination pineapple juice and Malibu and lots of ice, which makes a perfect drink post work on a warm summer’s evening.
P.S- With more than a few trick up their sleeves for this edgy opening and playful décor, the food is set to wow as well as the bar. Definitely a great place for post work chills or maybe a Sunday brunch.
