I had always heard about the famous Flurys breakfast. Having spent 3 years in Kolkata and not going once for that fabled breakfast looked like a crime to me. So on a beautiful Sunday morning four of us went for the Sunday Breakfast. Unfortunately lazy that we are we reached at around 9:30am for the breakfast. Didnt expect to stand in a queue to enter the place for breakfast. But had to stand for half an hour for a place. Just shows how popular the place is for breakfast. It definitely raised our expectation.
I always review a restaurant not on the food alone but on the overall experience which includes service and ambience of the place.
Having been to many top of the class restaurants in the city, I expected the service to be top class. Somehow the service was not upto our expectation. The things that put us off are the torn menu cards, dirty tables that took some time and few repeated requests to be cleaned, the chairs upholstery that needed cleaning. One thing was obvious that maintenance was not high on thier priority list.
Coming to food, it was good. No complains about that. The food was visually and gastronomically appealing. The glass window gave a splendid view of the empty Park Street soaked in overnight rain. The whole ambience - the view outside, the food and the interior decor lifted our mood.
Overall the price is definitely on the higher side. Rs 150 + for an omlette is really high. But I would still prefer to pay that amount for the overall experience. Do go there for the a lazy Sunday breakfast and you would not be disappointed
