We were wondering where to head for dinner one Saturday evening and among the suggestions I got, one was Spice Kitchen. This is one of the restaurants at the recently opened Marriott Hotel and Convention Centre on Senapati Bapat Road.

The place was semi-full and filling up fast by the time we got there and I was patting my back for having made prior reservations. It is quite spacious and I liked the layout, with ample space for everyone to move around and partake of the yummy food on offer.

And what food! 😀

Right from the salads to the other starters, the spread on offer was one big gastronomic feast – what with smoked salmon, lamb chops, turkey ham and the usual chicken dishes, cooked in continental as well as Indian style.

We had opted for the buffet and were wondering if we’d ever get to the main course, as the starters were only so filling! Of course, we went back for more and were thoroughly stuffed by the end of it. We decided to have a dekko at the desserts and were left flabbergasted by the sinful delights, as you can see. If anything, our only regret was that we’d had a heavy lunch as well. Note for next time: Come here hungry 😉

Last but not the least, at Rs.847/- per head, this is one of the most VFM buffets I’ve come across, especially in a hotel like this. The only crib we had was that this price does not include *any* beverages, so we had to pay extra for the alcohol and mocktails. This is quite unlike the buffet (with unlimited alcohol) at Paprika Hot Rock, but heck, the food and desserts here were lip smacking and totally worth it! 😀
