Paneer Balsamic at Ozora

Ozora, the city’s only rooftop sky bar, perched on the 20th floor of Acropolis Mall, h a s ro l l e d o u t Wi n t e r Wonderland, a Sunday brunch menu, targeting foodies in the afternoons. With oriental continental and Indian fusion dishes on the platter, the brunch will be on till the beginning of March
next year.

As we settled ourselves on the high stools at the sprawling restobar spread across 25,000 sq ft, on a mellow Sunday afternoon, we were greeted by the cheerful chef Tania Ghosh. “We started this brunch to attract our patrons in the afternoon. It’s only during the winter time that we are open during the lunch
hours,” she offers. The buffet spread consists of a variety of cuisines, with each week seeing a different
spread on offer. “Each week, there will be a new menu comprising interesting savouries and sweets,”  says Ghosh, while serving us the starters of the day. These include crispy chilli pork, balsamic paneer tikka, wok tossed pepper chicken and crispy Naan Sense!

The balsamic paneer tikka was soft and had soaked the subtle spices well. The crispy chilli pork was tasty, though a bit on the saltier side. The Naan Sense made with crispy baby naans topped with paneer tikka, tossed in pasta sauce, was delectable and reminded us of the batata puris served on the city’s roadside stalls.

The brunch buffet is carefully curated, keeping in mind the varied palates of the guests. “It has a mixed offering including Chinese, Indian and a bit of continental cuisines,” says Ghosh, adding that most of their guests prefer Chinese and fusion dishes. The Hunan Chicken in the Chinese section was succulent, while the Kosha Mangsho had all the trappings of the typical Bengali mutton dish.

Meanwhile, the Jerk Chicken with pepper sauce went well with the English grilled veggies and caper cream. The dessert section got a thumbs-up from us, too. Balanced in terms of the sweetness quotient, the pancakes with berry compotes, coconut soufflé, payesh and ice-cream cola are sure to leave you spoilt for choice.

On till the first week of March, the buffet is priced at `1,260 (AI) per person and `800 more for unlimited alcohol.
