Lotus Cafe, Marriott Juhu
To me, restaurants, eateries are much more than just that. They have tales to convey, experiences to share. Each place is unique, be it in decor, ambiance or food. Hence it is important for me to keep exploring new venues from time to time.
But this one is a late review, we went to Lotus Cafe, Marriot in November 2016 and it’s almost 2 months now. But I believe, it’s better late than never.
Marriot, as we all know, is a luxury hotel. Its five star facilities, chic decor speaks loud and clear. We chose "Lotus Cafe" for our official team meet, needless to say after ounces of discussion and dilemma. It’s a curse to have too many options! And we know Mumbai...
It was a bright and sunny day...we went to Lotus Cafe for treating ourselves on the elaborate lunch spread.
The chic interior
The enormity of the place
When you enter the restaurant the first thing that strikes you, is its enormity. Spread across a huge area and with chic decoration in browns and creams, there is a distinct lavish feel about the place. Food was good too, options were many and taste was fine, though there was nothing in particular that has remained with me. But probably that is an issue with all buffet spreads, you can seldom expect gourmet quality.
Deserts were many
There is a grandeur about “Lotus Café” which cannot be missed, but in terms of variation it does not offer much. It adheres to the norms of five stars and just meets your expectation, without leaving you ecstatic.
However we particularly had a great time, clicking snaps, chatting and devouring from the huge spread they offer. Staff was cooperative and friendly.
Our team of simulation nerds
But I have a complaint too, they did not allow us to go the garden and said that it was strictly for those staying in the hotel. This one aspect, we did not appreciate. After all, guests pay a lot for the food, hence the denial was completely unjustified.
The garden as seen from the restaurant
In totality, it is good place to go but did not intrigue my fancies.
