Absolute BBQ, T- Nagar, Chennai




One restaurant which has announced its arrival to the Chennai food scene in a big way was the Absolute BBQ. I have witnessed its growth from strength to strength. Concept is very similar to an already existing restaurant, but then super sizing is just next level stuff, thats just what Absolute BBQ has done. This review is a compilation of multiple visits here at different times.


Food:
The only option here is the buffet and there is no ala carte fare here. But the buffet is just enough to shut any person about missing dishes. The items on the buffet remains same for the most part with a slight alterations here and there along the week.  Food service starts off with a mix of on-table grilling and a few starters served on plate. There is no discrimination between veg and non-veg foodies here. The same number of dishes for both, so one does not feel left out.



Usually I am stuffed by the time I am done with the starters and I just head over to the desserts. I did just the same this time as well. As this is a compilation, I thought I would list some of the dishes which were worthy of mention.



Firstly the Pineapple Strawberry Shaker drink served inside a pineapple is absolutely Bindaass!!!! Both the drink and the way it is served is top notch. BBQ Chicken wings part of the recently concluded Ay Caramba food festival was fantastic. Mind you I had atleast 4 to 5 pieces of the lovely succulent wings.



Then there was the tender, well marinated Jamaican style Mutton grill which was superb. Then there was this interesting looking chicken lollipop kind of dish which turned out to be a Corn-pop, was really good. Also they had a nice pepper grilled steak served with mustard sauce.



Apart from these, the usuals - the American Cheesy Potato and the Grilled Pineapple are simply outstanding. By the time you chow down the starters you are most definitely full. Next course you would move on to is the Wish Grill!! 

Here you have exotic meats and veggies to be blended in a way one would fashion. I ll just stick to my strength - the meat section. Rabbit, Quail, Shark, Octopus, Duck, Prawns, BBQ Chicken, Country Bird... Phew that's a large list. Mix them with egg, noodles and various selection of sauces and you could have  various combinations, that would be difficult to count. This concept is more like the live noodles counter at Chap Chay.


At this point I just move over to the desserts and pick my favourites Pan Ice Cream and the Saffron Phirni which was simply brilliant. I would just return for the Pan Ice Cream which is fit for Kings.

Ambiance:
Very, very noisy! It could be a turn off if you want a quite dine. If not, you would love the experience.

Service:
Simply fantastic, very attentive. The chef personally talks to the diners and is always willing to change the type of preparation according to the customers tastes.

Price:
The buffet here is priced on a average of Rs 699 - 899 depending on the day and time you dine in.

Leaving all this aside which sound interesting, getting a seat here is a big pain. I have been disappointed 'n' number of times trying to make a reservation. So if you could get a seat then you are in luck and make the best of the meal.
