Sheesha’s @ Shopper’s Stop, Sheesh at the Hukka!
Sheesha’s at Shoppers Stop, Bandra is a must visit place to escape the searing heat. No No, there is no AC section here (for that, please stay in your respective homes and office :P) but it is an open air restaurant that has its own charm.
There is something about rooftop places, the view, the ambiance, the wind, the comfort, the feeling of being on top of the world and a satisfied feeling too if the food is good. We were all of this as strong gusts of wind kept the sweat away from our brows, quite literally. Since Sheesha serves Hukkas (and we were there for hukkas), we ordered for a Blue Berry Hukka. Though, I think, he served us a Pan Masala Hukka. We didn’t mind but later realised an error we committed while ordering the Hukka. We ordered for a normal Hukka and not the one with ice. We realised that the flavour ran out soon as the water warmed up and with temperatures already soaring high, we ended up paying dearly for this error – more like paying but not enjoying for long!
Accompanying the Hukka were a couple of starters. One was a Reshmi Tikka and another was a Mutton Sheekh Kebab. Both were excellent. The Reshmi Tikka was succulent. The Sheekh Kebab was made of finely minced meat and the flavours were well-balanced without any one flavour overpowering the others. The kebabs did break apart a bit suggesting that the dough probably needed to be kept aside longer. The kebabs tasted pretty good nonetheless.
Overall, it was a meal that was a bit pricey at Rs.250 per person especially since we didn’t have main course here. The hukka ran out too early and kinda spoiled the mood for us. Next time, shall remember to order the Iced Hukka!
