Was chatting with a friend about the Turkish Grand Prix, and how some years ago, we used to watch the race each Sunday at a pub over pints of beer. The talk turned to the Formula One Sports Bar at the Hotel Sagar Plaza, and if it was worth a shot going there again.
A friend was coming from Mumbai to Pune on a rare trip ever since she got married a year ago. Naturally, there was a good deal of enthusiasm among all of us and there was a flurry of activity with multiple emails being sent back and forth about a get together. Finally it was decided we’d all meet on Friday and though there was the usual discussion about where to do so, we finally zeroed in on Sigree. There were six of us (four gals, two guys), a third guy having to drop out on account of some office work that came up.
Now the reason for choosing the venue was that somewhere I guess we all had heard reviews about the place so it seemed as good a place as any. Sigree is located at City Point, at the corner where Dhole Patil Road and Boat Club Road meet. In fact, I was surprised how I’d never been there before, considering I’d visited Mainland China, Bombay Brasserie and La Dolce Vita in the same building complex.
A traveller aboard Virgin Atlantic’s Mumbai-Heathrow flight wrote a hilarious complaint letter, possibly among the best ever, to Virgin Atlantic boss Richard Branson where he narrated his ordeal during the flight. Branson was apparently so impressed that he actually called the writer to thank him for his feedback and even invited him to suggest improvements in the menu.
Here is the letter.. enjoy 🙂
