  • Would you go back to this restaurant? No

You go to such a high-end restaurant to get 2 things : One is good tasty food and second is an amazing ambience. Chor Bazaar scores well on the 2nd objective, but does very poorly on the food taste aspect. The food is unimaginative and lacks the "spice" element. It is made more keeping the Western taste in mind. We found the veggies to be a bit more salty than our taste.

The ambience is good and staff was friendly.

The price is very hefty when compared with other similar 5-star restaurants (like the IZ in Grand Hyatt, or Options, or Asha's) and as time-out rightly says, I am not sure if I will drive all the while to Ibn Batuta to get such a pricey unimaginative food.

PS: We are veggies.

The Time Out review is spot-on. We went to Serafina on an early Saturday afternoon. Apart from another couple we were the only ones. The welcome was warm and staff very friendly, but not overly attentive. Given that there was only four people in total to attend to a disappointing experience.
The food is underwhelming. We had the calamari as starters - they looked as if they had been removed from the fryer much too early. Also, the batter was on the salty side.
The pizza was disappointing and is rather expensive for what you get. And I doubt that in Italy you would be served Shiitake mushrooms as a topping on your pizza.
The best about Serafina was the view.

awful service!… came in the place with practically empty tables and yet it took them to bring out the food we ordered one by one after over 45 minutes from the time we ordered the food…

ordered three fettuccine and they forgot one… my daughter had to wait for ten more minutes to get her food…

ordered three medium-well steaks and they got only two of them spot-on… they took back the still-internally-bleeding third steak to redo and when they served it again, it was still bleeding!… manager made a lot excuses about different meat weights which made me more furious… they got two steaks cooked right already and i gave them another chance to cook the last one properly but all i got back was excuses…

whoever was in-charge of those grills should get a meat thermometer to cook things right… and the bobbing-head of a manager doesn't show listening to an angry customer, he's just adding insult to injury!…

it was, all-in-all, an unpleasant experience and almost dampen our family celebration…

won't be coming back there anytime!…

Had a takeaway which was very disappointing. Tasteless, bland, watery curry. I won't be ordering again.
