The restaurant is situated on Habibullah Road, was fairly easy to find. Ample parking in front of the premises was another plus. The first thing that strikes you as you enter is the fully glass-enclosed kitchen completely visible from every side. The décor too was pleasant.
From our menu we decided on the Balkan Platter starter, the Lamb Sach of the day and the Beef fillet Steak. While we were placing our order the promoter Mr. Bogdan joined us.
I seized the opportunity to try to understand more about him and the restaurant. Mr. Bogdan is from Serbia and is an expert in Supply Chain management. He has been in India for over 5 years and has spent considerable time in North India, especially in Varanasi.
He explained the philosophy behind the restaurant. He likened it to the dish I ordered, the “Sach”. Pronounced Sach (truth) in Hindi, he went on to say that his philosophy was about truth. They believed in being extremely transparent about the process and were particular about hygiene in the kitchen. He claimed that most patrons feared that the kitchen may not be sterile and the due processes may not be followed.
Chef Jovan and Chef Goran are the two Chefs, who are also Serbian. It was a pleasure to watch them at work. Like a live Masterchef session on a large screen! :))
Verdict: A must visit place with an excellent ambience and delicious food.
