Just ask the waiter what to order

Restaurant review

Convivial atmosphere in a household set-up, Cress Bistro is a party place where people who live near by can catch up with each other.

Not sure if someone from far distance will take the trouble to actually look for Cress to eat here. But that does not mean that the place is not houseful. On most weekends it is jam packed.

That is because it is like a next door drinking bistro. Nested amidst a residential area in Greater Kailash 2, it is an intimate space.

It has an open air and interior seating arrangement, which is not exceedingly posh, but adequately comfortable. Outside, the tables and chairs are so closely kept, that soon strangers start interacting with each other. If there’s a T20 match, that is bound to happen.

If you’re sitting inside, you can spend more quiet and private time. When diners enter the bistro, they will find themselves sitting in wooden furniture. The ceiling, which is made of natural wood, lends a countryside look to it.

The place is not so much for eating, but Metrolife made itself comfortable with the food, so that we could concentrate on conversations more than anything else.

When we visited, the restaurant was preparing to change and amend the menu. But we could not help appreciating the service and the owner’s interest in food tasting by customers.

Cress Bistro’s main attempt is on Indian, Mediterranean and Pan-Asian flavours. Best would be to try out Chipotle Chicken Tikka and Burmese Samosa. Peanut Butter Chicken, Oregano Naan, Grill Fish or Wok Fried Chicken with Cashew Nuts, which are popular according to them.

With extreme competition in the restaurant industry now, it is difficult to suggest Cress for anything more than an average eating joint. But one will not find them exasperated. If you ask the waiter, he will surely suggest a dish which is trending.
 If you just go by the menu, a good choice is directly proportional to good luck. Also, the place is sufficiently low on cost to hang out in in a large group.

Cocktails and drinks are regulars again, nothing to go gaga over, but good for a buzz. Desserts are most mouth-watering of the lot, Flavoured Waffles and Double Trouble are a must try.
