Quench, Bandra is one of the places I have frequented a lot. It has a character that makes me visit it again and again. And then of course there is food! The décor is cool and funky and the place is always lively, be it during lunch or dinner, weekdays or weekend. It’s a small place and most of the times getting a table means waiting for one to get vacant. Service is good and in my experience I have always gotten extra attentive servers who will be present to fill my glass before it even gets completely empty.
In starters, I would recommend, Cheese Chilly Toast (the classic fail-safe option at most places), Paprika Potato, herb Paprika Chicken, Oregano and Pepper Prawns. Beware of Quench Chef’s Special, it’s not a good option. In main course, my personal favourite has been, Penne Chicken Pasta with Paprika sauce. I have ended up eating that on most of my visits to Quench and I can see myself continuing that tradition. But you should also try Peking Red – A combo of dragon prawns, Chinese fried rice with stir fried soya chilly chicken. Desserts they don’t have many options but their Sizzling Chocolate Brownie is sizzling indeed.
Now coming to some drawbacks (all have them) Quench in Bandra only serves wine and beer, no other alcohol. This I found disappointing at times and may have visited the neighbouring places just to try some of the other choices. But honestly, it’s not a deal breaker. On the other hand, Quench, Versova doesn’t serve ANY alcohol. That might be a deal breaker for some. So I would tell you to stick with the bandra one, it’s better that the one in Versova and not just for the alcohol part but it has more charm and is better in most aspects be it food, ambience, even service. Nonetheless, both places are pocket friendly and is a good spot to hang out with friends any time of any day.
