We had been waiting to have a meal at Burgundy for very long. The reviews were fantastic and the word of mouth publicity was astounding. We were there recently for an impromptu dinner and found the restaurant looking simply fabulous. It is nestled between a couple of highrises and sits at the centre of a fairly large open area with abundant parking space all around it.
The restaurant itself has very chic European interiors, walls tastefully decorated with wine bottles and confectionery items. The waiters are very polite but were quite difficult to get hold of owing to the saturday night crowds. The buffet spread is not located at the centre of the restaurant but at one end which makes it a little difficult to reach if you are sitting close to the pub.
The questionable ambience bit was due to our being seated close to the pub. The pub as well as the restaurant share a common restroom and whenever someone from the pub opened the door to get to the restrooms (which was happening on an average every 5-6 minutes), there would be this sudden explosion of trance which got quite irritating after a while. The restaurant noise levels were quite high inspite of there being a good distance between tables.
The food was truly unbelievable. Everything we ate was just phenomenal, even the wood-fired pizza slice with the chef's hair in it. There is no compromise on taste and that clearly shows. The spread is impressive with dishes from all over the country and the world. There was sambar, rasam and rice alongside cold cuts of beef and marinated baby octopus salad. The restaurant also offers you a-la-carte options but I would definitely suggest the buffet as it is cost-effective and a must-try.
The buffet cost Rs. 985/- (taxes included) and the dishes in the a-la-carte menu were upwards of 400-500. I had a great time when I went there last and I'm waiting to repeat te experience (minus the hair in the pizza and the nerve-wracking trance forced upon me ofcourse).
