Butler House is a new name added recently in the list of gastronomical destination of all the foodies where they can really relish some delectable food and drinks. Opened recently in September 2015 the restaurant has already created a lot of buzz in the town so it was actually hard to resist myself from giving it a try.
The restaurant serves an array of sumptuous cuisines including Awadhi, Continental and Italian. The kitchen is manned by a very talented and potential Chef, Chef Manish who loves to experiment with the food and enjoys his passion by creating something really unique in his kitchen. So I handed over the responsibility of choosing the dishes on him for the evening and asked him to serve his best. The meal got started first with a salad, “Mix green Orange salad”, which was really a nice blend of salad greens, oranges and pine nuts giving a refreshing taste with perfect tangy dressing. In starters we tried various veg and non veg options like Tandoori aloo chatpate, Wasabi Prawns, Achaari paneer tikka, Mutton seekh kebab, Black pepper in chicken and paneer as well and Shahjahanabad Special Chicken. All of them were extremely well prepared but special mention goes to Shahjahanabad Special Chicken was nice, tender and juicy and aptly spiced, Wasabi Prawns were a unique melange of flavors where the Chef has balanced the taste of Wasabi by milding it with mayonnaise and was going very well along with the crispy fried Prawns. Though as per me the Mutton Seekh kebab could have been a little better.
The Chef also recommended us to try their Butler House special Pizza in veg and non veg both, so how could we have said no. The pizzas were done just perfectly, having nice thin crust with apt topping and best part was the pizza sauce used in preparing them it was nice and tangy yet flavourful. Though I liked the Non Veg Pizza more as I am a carnivore, it had shredded prawn, Chicken and Mutton all three of them as toppings which is why it tasted divine.
In the mains we were served Chicken in black bean sauce with steamed rice and Chilly garlic noodles with mapo tofu. Chicken in black bean sauce was going completely well with the steamed rice, the flavor of the black bean sauce was balanced with the rice whereas the Mapo tofu was an extraordinary preparation where the oyster sauce flavour was creating a fabulous taste with the super soft tofu and was complimenting perfectly to the chilly garlic noodles. We were very much stuffed by the time from the scrumptious meal, so decided to take a break of twenty minutes and then go for desserts.
Chef Manish told us that he will be very soon introducing a whole new range of desserts very soon in the restaurant as right now they don’t have much options with them in that category. Well for the evening he served us his special dessert which he had at that time was “Sheer Khurma “, a delicious sweet melange of vermicelli, milkmaid and dry fruits. It just won our hearts all over and proved as a perfect ending to the meal.
If we talk about their staff and service then must say they are doing a fantastic job as the staff are quite attentive rendering efficient services. All in all a place worth giving a visit.
