Banter brings together a beautiful mix of serene ambience with culinary indulgence, all under one roof, well technically half roof and half open.
This place has the most beautiful open Air seating well comforted by the mist system and various fans and coolers. The floor has pebbles or gravles in this outer seating area with many trees decorating the place to perfection.
The borders are all covered with leafs and plants that are lit at night with LEDs. The swing seating is always in high demand. Other outside seating also looks great and makes one choose it over the air conditioned one. A big glass doorway leads to the back of the air conditioned seating. There is a separate front entry as well to the air conditioned seating that has group setup as well long chair setup. Also available are multiple screens all around for match screenings. There is so much to write and appreciate about the ambience but so little words to describe.
And not to forget the quirky writeups everywhere, on the entrance section to the bar counter boards. The place is expected to have a private seating setup, terrace seating as well all week liquor available by mid August.
Coming to the food, Maggi Arancini is definitely a trend setter. Topping it with Maggi powder was the main ingredient that won my heart. Definitely recommended.
Pindi Chole Humus does look light in colour but renders the right Pindi chole taste as desired and goes well with lightly toasted kulchas, again a must try.
Udta Punjab has definitely made its impression in the city and giving banter it’s trademark dish, this vodka flambed garlic chicken dish is a must try. Definitely was a party in my mouth.
Coming to the mains, the Khow Suey was prepared well and furnished the coconut milk flavour with right amount of spices. The noodles served with it were fresh and sauteed well.
Banter Dal is their take on dal makhani and was near to authentic. It was delicious and had the right consistency. Junglee Mutton was absolutely delicious with a mildly spiced gravy and tender mutton. Really appreciate the right cooking of the mutton to melting tenderness.
Butter Chicken had light sweetness and medium consistency Tomato cashew gravy with excellently cooked chicken chunks. Taka Tak Soya Chaap is something rare to find in restaurants and banter does a great job in bringing the unique to us. Well spiced up and tastes amazing. I was so full by this time that there was no room for Desserts.
The mocktails here are definitely a winner. The veggie touch Chatter Box served in a beautiful sphere glass was very refreshing. Paan India rendered the desired flavour of a subtle paan and is a must try.
The place is medium expensive and priced in line with other fine dine brands of similar standard, the staff is well dressed in uniform and trained. Service is appreciable and I am certain every visit to this place would be a delight, thanks to the beautiful space it provides.
