Located bang opposite to the Powai Lake, this lounge has been a talk of the town since quite a long time. One can choose from various options like having a chilled beer with friends, or enjoy a lavish, romantic date on the lounge’s roof top seating section. The indoor ambience is gloomy and sets the perfect mood for a party. Whereas, the rooftop section is bright and breezy with fancy yet minimal interior décor.
Rumours has a vast food menu and serves cuisines like Chinese, Continental and North Indian. We were quite impressed with the drinks menu as well, as it consists of various cocktail and mocktail options available for every taste preference.
|Vegetable Lettuce Wrap|
We started off with a Vegetarian starter which was fit for the diet conscious ones.
Vegetable Lettuce Wrap– is a fusion of fun food with Asian ingredients which consisted of all sorts of vegetables like spring onions, babycorn, corn, etc. topped on fresh lettuce leaves and drizzled with fried noodles.
|Yellow Bean Chicken|
Yellow Bean Chicken – One of the most mouthwatering dish available at this lounge, is made with tender chicken peices sauted in Chinese sauces and chestnuts. The texture was moist and tasted absolutely delicious!
|Potato Corn Rosti|
Potato Corn Rosti – is basically a flat patty, delicately made of mashed potatoes and corn. Due to mild spices, these flavours gave a Indo-Swiss blend to the dish.
Grilled Fish – This ridiculously delicious grilled fish is yet another starter and a speciality at the lounge. This fish peices are thinly sliced and then grilled to perfection. Also its flavours blended quite well and the quantitiy seemed satisfactory!
|Chicken Tequila Rice|
Chicken Tequila Rice – This dish was a highlight of the tasting session and I can’t describe in words about how well it tasted. When it comes to mains, this dish is a no-brainer and would match every individual’s taste preference. Also, full marks for presentation.
Apart from all the good food, we were privileged to test a few cocktails as well.
So here goes the list:
- Drink intensity: Mild.
- Drink intensity: Strong
- Drink intensity: Mild
- Drink intensity: Strong
- Drink intensity: Moderately strong.
We didn’t have anything specific for desserts as such, but were made to try fusion flavored Gola which is an addition to their summer menu.
This Mango Gola was nothing unique, but the concept of immersing it with Strawberry syrup seemed interesting and fancy. The above mentioned duo tasted pretty well, and would indeed help kick away the Monday blues. This also is a good option for non-alcohol drinkers.
