Jive is located very close to ESI, Indiranagar, HAL 2nd stage. The Chefs had organized a Blogger/foodie lunch meet and greet. we were in a team of 12 and headed there for lunch I reached the venue at 1pm.
Jive is spread across 3 levels. The ground floor entrance has a take away bar, second level is getting ready for a chic lounge experience will be launched soon and the third level has a fully functioning very cosy pub. The pub area has that retro chic interiors neatly maintained with comfortable seating.
Once we settled down a bit and seated menu cards for the drinks and appetizers with placed, I started my order with Pinacolada, which is my all time favorite. The drink was perfectly prepared creamy and yum..we also tasted sex on the beach cocktail it was orangy tangy and refreshing.
We did not order anything on the menu and wanted the chef to surprise us. Right after the first round of drinks the lunch service started. For starters we enjoyed the salads, Nachos and tandoori dishes.
First came the potato cheese kurkure served with a spicy chutney the fluffy and spicy potatoes were wrapped in romali roti and deep fried was very tasty with chutney. next up was chicken and veg wantons with garlic chutney I preferred the chicken wanton was spicy the garlic chutney combo was good.
Next up was Cheese-balls with hollandaise sauce , chicken macau roll, Nachos and Stuffed Mushroom. I liked the stuffed mushroom and nachos with beer and was slowly getting in that pub mode..
The salads were also served along with starters which filled us up. chicken salad and grilled mixed veggie salad. I felt the grilled mixed veg salad had very less dressing whereas the chicken salad had too much dressing me being a salad person was not impressed with the salads...
we were still not done with the starters next came the tandoori items. Tandoori Paneer tikka, Bharwan Tangri Chicken and Zaffrani Cheesy Chicken with chutney. now this is what i call a pakka desi style pub ka khanna. I totally enjoyed the stuffing inside the chicken thigh with chutney. paneer was not rubbery both the dishes tasted yum. the chicken zaffrani had no flavors what so ever it needs bit more tweaking.
The portion size for starter are good great value for money.
Finally mains were served. Chicken biryani, Rogan Josh, Dhal Makhani, Butter Paneer and rotis.
I liked the biryani and rogan josh with tandoori naan.
For desserts we enjoyed the gajar ka halwa had perfect amount of sweet was tasty perfect for winter weather.
