Surprised at the title, don't be, because I certainly DID NOT have an experience even remotely close to what the previous 4 reviewers had. Not sure if VikramK visited on V-Day or not, but the other 3 certainly did. The experience I had at this place was completely the opposite (I visited on the 9th, a good 5 days before V-Day).
At the start, let me lay out a few facts - I learnt that the place is only 6 weeks old, so it doesn't matter if the owners are the same as other well-established joints, teething troubles will always be there (personal opinion, not gospel truth - if you believe in the gospels :) ). In any case, the ambiance of the place is great, and in all honesty, it really is something you'd want to drive across town to see.
The food. It's very good (not withstanding the troubles on V-Day). Since I'd visited the place as part of a review for a tabloid (we don't reveal to the restaurant that we're reviewing the place until after we pay the bill, thereby maintaining anonymity and credibility). As part of the review we also take people who know something about the cuisine, so I had two French and a Spaniard as my guests. One of the French nationals had also lived for long in Morocco, so she knew her Arab-Medit food pretty well. We had an al-Harira soup (lamb and vermicelli, with lemon and cinnamon), hummus, spinach croquettes, a Spanish omelet, and spicy potatoes. We also had Sangrias and red wine. The hummus and the soup were the best - superb. The croquettes and spicy potatoes were ok, nice, but nothing great, while the Spanish omelet lacked authenticity, but otherwise was nice.
For our mains, we had a lamb tagine, a non-veg mezze platter, a veg moussaka, a seafood paella, and meatballs in tomato sauce served with rice. The tagine was superb - the best meal of the night. The meatballs and the moussaka were also pretty good, although the foreigners found the meatballs a little spicy while my Indian palate thought they were fine. The paella turned out to be more of a risotto, and so we gave that a pass. The mezze platter was very good.
For desserts, we had a baklava, a pastry puff dish, and a tiramisu, both of which were good. So all in all, the guests (who gave their verdict on authenticity and taste) gave this place a 4 on 5 for the review in the tabloid, and I'm using the same rating here.
