PEACOCK – Hidden Treasure in Indranagar 100ft Road
PEACOCK is one of the restaurant that is situated on 100ft road that is like a hidden gem in the ocean. It is one of the fine dining restaurant serving North Indian, Mughalai & Continental food that has not been known to many people. The restaurant has not done much publicity to promote the brand awareness. They have stayed relatively quiet and going about the business of serving good food. Recently, I got an opportunity to discover this place and I was simply amazed with the experience. Let me share more details on the same.
It is most important that I share the location information, otherwise it might become hard to spot it amid the lush green cover of the trees on Indranagar 100ft road.
If you are coming from Domlur flyover, you will need to drive on the 100ft road. Drive across the Sony World Junction and then keep on the look out to the right side. You would find a building that has Airtel outlet and Hush Puppies outlet in the ground floor. In the same building, PEACOCK names pops out and its written in BLUE color similar to the Indian Peacock. For reference, there is also a statue of Eagle sitting on American Flag behind the valet parking section.
If you are coming from the Old Madras Road, you will need to drive across the KFC Signal on the CMH Road and then head towards Domlur. You will need to cross the Anjappar restaurant that will appear to the left side. Just few hundred meters away is the building that has PEACOCK.
The interiors at this place are brilliant and they seem to have a theme of Angels, Unicorns, Birds, Stars, Flowers and Sun-rays.
At the ground floor lift zone, there is this beautiful structure that has Unicorn painted on a glass which looks brilliant. At the entrance of PEACOCK restaurant on the 1st floor, there are 3 different paintings of Angels & Unicorn. Inside the restaurant there are even more wonderful painting of ladies surrounding by stars. Every painting/picture is quite beautiful.
There are sofas put across the entire restaurant for guests to sit. Every table is setup cleanly with basic cutlery items and napkin.
Inside the restaurant, there is a pillar right at the centre, around which the complete buffet spread food is placed. The setup is quite thoughtful as it is equidistant for all guests. There are long tables that can seat nearly 15-20 people and smaller private tables where either couples or 4 people can sit.
I need to make a special mention of the green color velvet cloth that has been used on the sofas, which seem to have been custom made. The private dining is located next to the glass walls overlooking the traffic.
The building also has got a party hall named RENDEVOUS in the 2nd floor. There is parking space in the basement of the building. For guests coming to PEACOCK, valet parking serving is available. It is a very useful feature because it is hard to find parking in the busy & commercial 100ft road.
There are plenty of items that I tasted, let me share the experience.
Soups – I took the Manchow Veg soup which had chopped veggies topped with crispy noodles. It had the right amount of spices and the veggies seem to have been well cooked. The soup was quite tasty with the crispy noodles.
Chaats – There are plenty of options available among the chats. I tried the Pani Puri, Dahi Papdi and Dahi Puri.
Pani Puri was served with 2 uniquely flavoured water along with a bowl with boiled potatoes & spices. The taste was quite good but would have wished for sooji puri(s) as they are hard.
Dahi Puri was quite good and I could feel the curds, tamarind chutney, mint going well with the sev. This starter needs to be consumed quickly otherwise it will become soggy.
Dahi Papdi had crisp papdi, on top of it tamarind chutney and sev. The tamarind chutney/sauce was a little on the sweeter side. But when it was taken with paapdi, it tasted good. I still think that the sweetness can be reduced a bit.
I also tasted a little bit of Honey Chilli Potato. They also have some special Peacock Sides menu which has French Fries, Cocktail Samosa & other options.
Vegetarian Kebabs – Went for the Assorted Vegetarian Platter that had Paneer, Aloo, Brocolli, Hara Bhara Kebab and Veg Sheekh Kebab. Every item in the platter tasted very good. The plating also was quite good as they added lettuce and cut veggies on one side of the plate.
There are plenty of plenty of options under Non-Vegetarian Kebabs section as well.
Main Course – This is one of the very important section which fills our stomach.
Kadai Paneer with Tandoor Roti was an awesome combination. I don’t think that I have ever eaten such a soft Paneer. It was so soft that there was no necessity to bite and it just melted in the mouth.
Subz Makhanwala was another dish I tried, which tasted awesome. I could feel the flavours of the veggies along with the gravy & butter.
Dal Tadka was another dish they seem to have pulled it off perfectly.
Apart from the above mentioned, there are plenty of other Veg/Non-Veg options to choose from. There also some unique section in the menu – Peacock Special Indian Sizzlers and Peak Special Indian Platters.
Deserts – Gajar Halwa and Gulab Jamun are pretty good. I only wish that the sweetness was a little lesser.
Drinks – There are plenty of options to choose from among the alcoholic & non-alcoholic section. I tried 2 mocktails.
Coconut Lagoon which is a light drink with coconut syrup, Blue curacao & Lemon juice. I could feel the combination of coconut & blue curcao bringing some uniqueness to the drink.
Go Green is another mocktail containing Mint, Lemon Juice & Mint Syrup. The is another refreshing drink.
I had a great experience visiting a relatively old but unnoticed restaurant in Indranagar area. The taste of the food and flavours in the mocktails were quite good. Staff are very courteous and ready to attend anytime they are asked for help. Loved the interiors of the place which looks quite classy. Apart from serving Al-Carte’ they do serve buffet during all days of week and the price is very competitive. I rate my overall experience at 4.0/5.
