When we are looking for options like Live music, in-house brewed beers, lively and romantic ambiance along with wide variety of food options, we think of multiple options, but “The Finch” in Andheri, Saki Naka has it all.
This restro-bar is opened throughout the day, with different genre of bands performing every evening. The service was a little slow, as I visited late afternoon. Finding a place that is open and serving everything post 3 PM is very rare. This was a boon for me.
Here is what all I tried, starting with their in-house beer.
Indian pale ale – Flavors as the pale ale must be strong. Not just bitter. The IPA here has the best flavor I’ve had in a long time. They brew their own beers and have done an amazing job with the pale ale.
Cloud Black Oatmeal stout – This one is a chocolate, coffee and cream special. This one has good taste and is bound to make those happy who really love stouts.
Orange and Chilly mocktail – Quite an interesting combination no? Here you have orange juice along with their homemade Chilly syrup with lemongrass and mint leaves. It’s after taste is full of Chilly and hence we recommend this drink to you.
Rainbow Roll Sushi – This was a sushi combination with different mixes of salmon, Hamachi, tuna and avocado with cream cheese. Served along side soya and Wasabi. Amazing. Tastes too good. Please do try them.
Sashimi Hamachi – Quite surprising with how this turned out to be. Raw fish was served along with Wasabi. I’ll recommend this only to those who are open to experimentation.
Bhopali Chicken Seekh – This is not your traditional seekh kebab. Here the tandoori chicken seekh is made with chef’s secret mix. It’s heavy, the meat is good and it tastes amazing too.
Goan Fish Curry – This is a typical goan curry special. This is because they have added coconut milk which gives the Gravy an amazing taste. Here boneless surmai chunks are cooked well with the Gravy. Highly recommended that you try this.
Goeey Carrot and Philadelphia Cake – Here the cake has two layers I.e. Mashed carrot and Philadelphia cream. It’s just so satisfying. The Philadelphia cream resembles our modern day shrikhand. It tastes sweet and you must definitely try it.
