Magnum Opus- Something for Everyone Reviewed!

Magnum Opus, located in Pimple Saudagar- a one stop destination for all - may it be couples wanting a candid dinner, or party goers looking for a dance floor, or family wanting to dine. Owned by Mr. Manoj Pandey, its a huge property, capacity to cater more than 350 people, on rooftop has three segments with different decor, ambience and atmosphere. 

Amongst three, one is Magnum Opus, a fine dine veg and non-veg restaurant, offers world cuisines with the choice of AC or open air seating. As you enter you are welcomed by a magnificent setting, a delightful antique marble cut stones on the wall and the luxuries of modernity.

Big canvas paintings adorn the walls. This place is ideal for family or corporate meetings looking for A La Carte or Buffets.

Another is Bay Leaf, a pure vegetarian section with separate kitchen and kids' play area. Parents can sit back and relax, enjoy their meals without running around their children. Lollapalooza is the third section, a lounge with a dance floor where youths can hangout with friends and party together.
Food::
I was representing Food Bloggers Association of India (FBAI) and being a pre-launch invite, lunch was complimentary.However, the menu offered a wide variety of mouth-watering world cuisines. I had the Caramelised Onion and Zucchini broth soup, which could be avoided.

Starters were served on the table- Jalapeno Cheese Balls, Anjeer Kebab and Honey Chilli Crispy Potato.



They were exquisite especially Cheese balls having a crispy crust with gooey, melt in mouth cheese inside. The green chutney which accompany the appetisers were equally good.

Starters were followed by a intelligently designed lavish buffet spread with a mix of veg and non-veg. Variety of salads included Spiced Chicken Caeser salad, Tomato Mozzarella salad, Classic Pasta salad, Garden Fresh salad, Greek salad, Mix Seafood salad, Cucumber Khimchi salad, Raw Papaya salad of which my favourite was Tomato Mozzarella, wherein Tomato were roasted and sprinkled with mozzarella, nice juicy taste.


Moving to main course, Penne with creamy pesto, Mutton roganjosh, Goan fish curry, Paneer Makhan, Chilli garlic noodles, Chicken burnt garlic rice, Dal tadka, Steam Rice, Veg pulao, assorted Indian bread, papad and pickle- something for everyone.


Penne Pesto was surely the crowd puller. Makhani gravy was smooth and rich but Paneer could ave been more soft. Dal Tadka went well with Steam Rice.


We really did not have space for desserts but they looked promising. Fresh fruit platter, Gajar halwa, Moongdal halwa, Gulab jamun, Shahi tukade, Angoor rabri, Kala jamun. Who would say a no?


Shahi tukade failed to impress but Moongdal halwa surely was on a different league-loved it! What could be a better combination with winter noons and hot and scrumptious halwa? Kala Jamun was soft and warm.


Service:
Staff was new and active with a bit knowledge of food. They will obviously have hands on experience when everything goes in full swing.
Lifts and parking are also available exclusively for Magnum Opus.

I really congratulate Mr. Manoj Pandey and his team for Magnum Opus and wish him all the success!
