Blue Water Restaurant – A Culinary Oasis Like 0 Twitter Maanasshah Follow Jan. 16, 2017, 8:42 p.m. in Life and Styles Views: 662 Like us on facebook Blue Water, an initiative of Majesty Restaurant Café, is a huge banquet and restaurant located in the expansive and fast-developing suburb of Ravet. Blue Water provides banquet halls for sanctimonious ceremonies, a romantic dining opportunity, an outdoor meal area and a space for family luncheons. Serving Indian, pan Asian and continental cuisine, Blue Water creates a delicate balance of all the elements put together to make the dining experience a memorable one. The precious and semi-precious stones of Blue Water signify the nine planets of our solar system. It symbolizes the nine sections that have different arenas for different purpose. Blue Sapphire, Yellow Sapphire, Emerald, Solitaire, Sunstone are some of the sections which are currently operational. These spaces emit a certain positive vibe that one can experience while one is in the midst of wonderful company. The outdoor section not only has seating arrangements but also houses a large stage for live performances. So when #TheBTeam was extended an exclusive invite to cover their menu, we were thrilled and couldn’t wait to go. Innovatives Paisaaa Wasoool Kesaar – This was an extremely clever mix of whisky, milk and saffron and served in a milk bottle. A very soothing drink despite the whisky. #MustTry Thandaa Paan – Made with white rum, paan, mint and lemon, this was Blue Water’s version of the paan mojito. A nice strong flavor of the paan matched my expectations from the drink. #YumYum Kaalash Kundi – This had tequila, salsa, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce and beer and decorated with a chili rim. Didn’t like the combination of the flavors, I’d give this one a miss. Take Me High had Bacardi black, kahlua, espresso shot and was topped with coke. Anyone who appreciates coffee is sure to love this drink. And the generous portion of the alcohol in the drink makes it very name-worthy. #YumYum #HighlyRecommended #DeadlyPotent Haaard Sunstone is Bluewater’s take on the classic LIIT but with an added tang of cranberry juice. A combination which actually worked quite well, at least for me. #DeliciousDelicious The thandaa paan, kaalash kundi, take me high and haaard sunstone were all served in very innovative and quirky Tiki Mugs which quite honestly upped the fun quotient of the drinks. Mocktails Our very own teetotaler buddy tried the Passionate Fruity which had passion fruit, orange, pineapple, lime juice with sugar. A pretty drink to look at, for sure. Veg. Starters Crackling Spinach Cottage Cheese – This was an Oriental preparation of battered and fried paneer fingers, served with spinach. Still not a fan of the leafy greens but the paneer was soft and we could get a good hit of the spices used. Chermula Cottage Cheese Tikka was a new angle on an existing classic. The paneer chunks were marinated in a Middle Eastern chermoula sauce which imparted nice flavors to the dish. The super soft paneer was a big plus. #DeliciousDelicious Royal Hara Bhara Kebab were the standard fare – green kebabs which are soft and moist. The royal touch was the large size of the kebab and the cream on top. Non-Veg. Starters The Wok tossed Chili with Chicken was basically the standard Chili Chicken with a slight twist on the name. Thankfully there was no twist on the preparation, a perfect starter that goes well with beers. Bhune Murg ke Pasande and Nasila Kebabs were two chicken kebab variants. Nicely marinated in the respective sauces and tandoor-ed till crispy edges. Although couldn’t find anything nasila about that dish. The Cajun Spice Fish Finger was one delicious offering. Mildly spicy with a crunchy coating, the fish was soft and tender. We polished off these fingers in minutes. #DeliciousDelicious Soup The soup options were Tom Yum in veg. and non-veg. I opted for the veg [although I am not too sure why :-/]. Traditionally characterized by its distinct hot and sour flavours, the one served to us was unfortunately on the sweetish side. Salad Salads included Green Salad, Dahi Wada and Fruit Chat. Dahi wada had the expected sweetened curd but was creamy and the wadas were soft. There is hardly anything ground-breaking about green salad and fruit chat. :-) Mains The mains of Paneer Kesari Puktan and Rara Murg served along with the default Dal Makhni and Jeera Rice were well prepared and well matched with the array of Indian breads served alongside. Nice gravies for the paneer and chicken, thick and creamy and very well cooked chunks of both. #YumYum Desserts In desserts we were offered Gulab Jamun, Gajar Halwa and Mango Ice Cream. The gulab jamuns were decent sized and soft as expected however the gajar halwa had a little too much ghee. While that sure does enhance the taste of the dish, I don’t appreciate the ghee-y after-taste it leaves in your mouth. The mango ice-cream was another standard fare. Blue Water restaurant is one amazing place to create wonderful memories with loved ones. A big shout out to Nitish Kamdar for inviting us and Team Bluewater for hosting us. Bluewater is located at Aundh - Ravet Rd, Punawale. Disclaimer: The invite was for a complimentary food tasting event. This review is a narrative of my experience at the event.
