Pirates of Grill has spread its wings and opened up its outlet at the Mall of India, Noida. Residents of this city, who could not get an opportunity to try the lavish buffet offered by the Pirates at either the Gurgaon outlet or the Rajouri Garden outlet, have now a reason to rejoice. Mall of India is massive and some of the biggest names in the food industry have either opened, or are coming up with an outlet here. In fact The Pirates of Grill, Noida itself is quite huge and packs a great amount of seating capacity. The décor is chic, modern, vibrant and lustrous.
It was a Saturday morning and the place was completely packed. This tells a lot about the brand. The concept needs no introduction as it’s been around for quite a while now, and many other brands are offering a similar fine bar-be-que dining. What astounded me the most is that this lavish buffet which consists of about 10 starters (5 Veg, 5 Non Veg) including dimsums and a wide range of salads, soups, mains and the desserts, starts with approx Rs. 600 /- for a veg. buffet and approx Rs. 700/- for a non veg one inclusive of taxes on weekdays and a slightly higher price bracket on weekends, when the spread is even more lavish.
The quality which they are serving at this price bracket is phenomenal. You not only get an opportunity to get immersed in the experience of grilling some of the most delicious Indian starters yourself, but you also get to try world cuisine such as Mongolian Live Grill, where you can get meats and veggies hand tossed according to your preference, Live Tapenyaki Ice Cream and Jalebi Caviar which meets the philosophy of the Co-Founder Inderjeet Bagga who believes in creating live interaction between the chefs and the guests.
The dishes that really stood out for me were Potato Salsa, Churrasco Pineapple, Mutton Seekh, Chicken Sui-Mai and Roasted Garlic Prawn. You’ll be provided with a host of sauces that will help you add flavours of your choice to the starters you want to grill. I was so full by the time I finished my starters that I skipped the soups and the salads. Main course menu was also very lavish and the dishes I liked were Dal Makhani, Kadhai Paneer, Thai Red Curry, Mongolian style noodles and Mutton Roghan Josh. The Chef Treated us with a special offering that was his own take on the Raan (Full leg of Lamb) served with Roomali Roti Nachos. The flavor was spot on.
They have a rotating menu, which gives you all the more reason to visit Pirates multiple times, in order to try each and every delicacy they have on offer. There are various Mocktails too on their menu, till the time they get a liquor license, to gulp it all down and have a good, satisfying king’s feast.
