9.10 Perfect dinner finish at Spice Kitchen | After a lot of thought and wrangling over choices, the esteemed dinner spot has been granted to Spice Kitchen at the Marriott. Don’t be put off by the fact that it’s a 24-hour restaurant or by the fact that it’s primarily known for its buffets.
In terms of diversity, mood and flavours, Spice Kitchen scores brilliantly. Spread out over a large interior space with a complementary smaller outdoor patio, the restaurant never feels too cold or anonymous but surrounds you with warmth and a welcoming vibe instead. The fact that there’s almost always a crowd in here also ensures that necessary buzz that every great eatery requires.
From the a la carte selection, the Tandoori Roasted Chicken Kathi Roll makes for a delectable starter, crisp and bursting with Indian flavour. Now onto an Italian sojourn, where the Rucola Wood-fired Pizza is a rustic delight, brimming with flavours of Parma ham, tomatoes and parmesan. But the dinner buffet is a sophisticated, subtle affair too, where you may choose from grilled meats, oven-baked pizzas, excellent tandoori kebabs, and a divine dessert selection. Leaving you in just the mood to head up to the Marriott’s rooftop lounge Pasha and call an end to your day-long culinary adventure in Poona.

This selection has featured many of the city’s enduring favourites. But to get a true-flavour of modern-day Poona, you must dive wholeheartedly into plenty of the new addresses and personalities that have taken the city by storm over the recent past, and continue to crop up with vibrant regularity.
Some have been around for a short while, while others are newborn and fresh to the world – but each is not to be missed. These include Dravida’s Bistro at Dhole Patil Road, which serves what is easily the best South Indian in town. A perpetual fine-dining favourite continues to be Stone Water Grill in Koregaon Park, a sophisticated paean to the good life.
Greek hotspot Euriska has quickly established itself as a firm contender with its heady mix of throbbing nightlife and delicious Mediterranean fare. Olive within the Poona Club premises is a worthy companion to its Brandra predecessor in Bombay, offering up what many would consider to be an even more delicious and attractive proposition to its patrons with its fabled Sunday Brunch and an aesthetic centred on textured stone and pure white. While in Le Plaisir on Prabhat Road, Poona finally appears to have unearthed a homegrown, standalone gem equipped to match French and Italian chops with the larger hotel-based giants. Bon Appetit.
