I went to Baljees in May 2012, a famous restaurant joint on the Mall in Shimla, but it was sheer disappointment as the food and staff both were terrible. I ordered a Veg Sizzler, the potato stuffing was ice cold despite being fried, upon confrontation the manger said its just happens sometimes in routine, i bet i could get a better sizzler roadside, then I ordered a Dal Makhani, which was the lentils apart from the water and the bread was like Chewing Gum. It would have been fine if staff admitted it but they totally refused to it adamant and non-cooperative staff, i left the whole food uneaten and went to some other Restaurant.

The food quality is excellent and rates are reasonable. The variety is also good- varying from Indian to Chinese to continental. It is one of the oldest restraunts on the Mall road and the service quality is also excellent.

We went to Baljees as my mom had to go to the toilet and the public toilet was quite a few steps down and my mom has difficulty in climimbing stairs. As it turned out, at Baljee's too the toilet is on the first floor! Anyway, the toilet was not clean and there wa sno water and we had to wait until the sweeper was called to start the pump and to clean it up.

The food was good (nothing great though). The service was average. We has chicken kadhai and paneer kadhai. Paneer was better than Chicken. We has arrived a bit late and as they don't take orders after 3 PM, we had to rush through with our meal. Overall it was just an average experience.

Thank Vijay_S555

I had visited Shimla with my wife and 10 year old daughter and we were out looking for a place to have lunch. Since we were on the mall we saw this restaurant above Baljees bakery shop called Fascination. We decided to try a new place and walked up the narrow staircase to the first floor restaurant. It looked like food was being distributed free as there was ahuge crowd waiting to be seated. We decided not to wait but again decided that so many people cant be wrong and so we waited. Our turn came and we sat and ordered some continental food with a lot of apprehension. When the food came , we were in a state of shock. I have never seen such amazing presentation in all the continental food I have tried at varioud five star hotels in Delhi Mumbai Bangalore etc. The taste of course was to die for and the quantity, well, we had to leave a lot of it as the portions were huge. We ate here for the rest of our three day stay and in fact, we are planning on viviting Shimla again and on top of the agenda is to eat again at Fascination. Try their roast meat and cheese and chicken pasta whenever in Shimla. Its a reasonable priced restaurant and surely is a foodies delight. Wonder why we didnt discover it on so many of our earlier visits to Shimla.
