This is a modern bistro and trendy sports bar in the centre of Navi Mumbai Millennium Business Park. Great value for money, superb buffet. Friendly, owner and staff. Happy hour between 4 and 7. Lunch is between 200 and 400 rupees.

If staying in the area - you should try them out.

Down the Road Restobar recently opened and started buffet for INR 399; which is almost half of other similar restaurants in and around MBP.

I really liked the ambience and overall setup of the place. The collection in the bar looked impressive too. Staff was friendly too...

But food was no match too the first impression. They were running short of vegetarian starters and struggled to keep my plate full. Cheeze corn balls and lime potatoes were just ordinary. My friends were not impressed with Fish and Chicken too.

While choice of Salad and taste was good. Main course and soup were disappointment. Only flavor in chicken was uncooked oil. Mixed vegetables tasted straight out of cold storage. Aloo Methi was uncooked. Dal and Rice were saving grace to fill the belly. Mix veg in black beans sauce was just lost cause. Nothing much to say about dessert. Mango Mouse and Rice Kheer were just acceptable. Honeyed noodles were good.

It was Friday so we went early to get table. In another 30 minutes there as more crowd for than staff could manage. INR399 after all is half of other restaurants in the vicinity. My guess is that it is introductory price. It was chaos.

My advice -
1. find your best dish to add to buffet for which I would be happy to get up from seat. 2. Dessert in buffet is not just formality. It is serious business. First thing first. Don't serve me desert from bar counter. Make room for it. Honeyed noodles were good but were was vanilla ice cream that goes really well with it.
3. Avoid serving starters on table. It will free your staff to do more for customers.
4. One less table and there will be room for starters and desserts.
5. If there are too many people for buffet; it right thing to say no to some customers or ask them to wait. Staff in the kitchen can only do so much. It is not ideal for new restaurants to have manager is running for rice in kitchen.
6. If INR 399 is too low raise it to INR499. But impress me to come again with food.

All the best.. I just read story of how the pilot for Game Of Thrones miserably failed. I wish you learn from the pilot rise. Soon.
