I do not like starting all my posts with an “it’s been long since I wrote”… so I get straight to the point. If there is a new place in town, I got to be there. And chapter one was pretty new when we first when there. It was accidental and as all unplanned nights are, that one too became one of the happiest times. We entered the lower floor which was indoors area. The upper floor was rooftop. For the first time both the spaces were equally interesting. But, we settled for the rooftop. The place was already buzzing with people. How does the word even get out that there is a new place?
The ambience was lively, pleasant and relaxing. We loved the tiny details that the decorators had put in to make the place look perfect. The planted pots just added to the cool breeze of a Bangalore evening. The staff were friendly and courteous.
For starters we ordered egg pakora, crispy fried chicken and Szechwan lollipop. The crispy fried chicken was just amazing. We loved the quality, quantity and the plating of the dishes served. The lollipops were crisp and spicy. The egg pakoras came in majestically in a momo container. But, they were a little bland for our Indian taste buds. They could have made it a bit spicy. The chicken dum biryani was the best way to end our lovely meal. It was flavorsome and spicy, just like how I loved.
Chapter One is a perfect place for young groups to hangout and have evening conversations. I give this place a 4 out of 5 stars for the ambience, service and food. Surely am going back sometime soon.
