Beach Club, Neelankarai


Good food and a fantastic time with friends can put a big smile on one's face. This is true of the great  time I had at Beach Club, Neelankarai recently. Met up with my friends for our weekly get together at Beach Club, post Iftar. On entering we were all floored by the ambiance it had to offer outdoors. While the the indoors was just plain jane in comparison. Unfortunately for us, we group of six could not get a table outdoors and had to settle indoors.



Food:
They had a nice buffet set up for dinner which looked really inviting. So we chose to go ahead with it.   The meal started off with Corn soup with Chilli Chicken being served on the table. Interesting use of Chilli chicken being shredded into pieces for the soup. Yummm! it was. Moving along I tried my hand at 'Make your own Salad'. Went about adding lettuce, cucumber, black olives, loads of cheese, croutons and finally from their selection of sauces, the yoghurt sauce. It was one tasty salad, thanks to the yoghurt sauce which was fantastic.


Moving along we were served with a welcome drink - Lime Mint Cooler which was really nice. The main course was spread across the hall. I tried sampling as much as possible, but failed to do justice to  the spread as I felt full rather quickly.

The standout dishes were the Chicken Biryani, which was fantastic. One of the best star hotel type biryani I have had in a long while, Stir Fried Fish which was simply spectacular, Crispy Chicken Wings which was good as well. Finally the Pomphet Fish gravy which went well with the Kerala Parotta and white rice. I did sample a bit of the veg dishes as well, but the things which stood out were the Baked Veggies and the Veg Spring rolls.



Finishing the main course I was too stuffed, but I tried sampling the desserts. Vanilla Ice Cream was served on the table while the rest were to be picked from the buffet counter. All in all a very decent fare.

Ambiance:
I cannot talk enough about the outdoor ambiance as I am out of words. It was simply fabulous. We were all floored. If one were to look to take your female companion for an amazing date, look no further.

Service:
Since it was a buffet, not much to complain here.

Price:
The dinner buffet was priced at Rs 800/- including taxes, which I feel is terrific value for money.

Ambiance - 8.5/10 (outdoors) 6.5/10 (indoors)

Disclaimer : I paid for the meal.
