Tarsh Gastronomia – Value for money lunch buffets and good Indian food! — Reviewed!

Tarsh Gastronomia was recently launched in the hub of Pune's IT scene — Hinjawadi. Located on the 8th floor, the restaurant features the illuminated bar, appealing fresh interiors, The speciality kitchen and bar delivers a memorable dining experience with the authentic traditional dishes, bold flavours and elegant presentation. One aspect that needs attention is the trained service staff.

The menu is quite elaborate and you will be spoiled by the choices they have to offer from Indian to Italian to Continental. The Sheesha famed consultant chef, Kadar Khan, specialises in the Indian cuisine and have done justice to the dishes on the menu. Some of the signatures are Dahi ke Kebab, Galouti Kebabs, Dumplings, Dal Bukhara and Jalebi-Rabri. Also, do not forget to try the Harvest Lunch Buffet which costs at Rs.589++for veg and Rs.689++ for non-veg including almost 10 starters of each veg and non-veg apart from the salads, main course and scrumptious Indian desserts. This is a steal deal! A La Carte options are also available costing approx. Rs.250 per dish

Here is what we tried from the lunch A La Carte:
  • Black Pepper Mushrooms (4/5)
  • Ginger Honey Potatoes and Shitake Mushrooms (4/5)
  • Thai Basil Cottage Cheese (3.5/5)
  • Dahi ke Kebabs (4/5)
  • Broccoli Galouti Kebabs (4/5)
  • Crispy Corn Schezwan style (4/5)
  • Tandoori Boat Aloo (3/5)
  • Veg Crystal Mushroom Dumpling (4/5)
  • Spicy Veg Coriander Dumpling (4/5)
  • Three Layer Milk Cake (3.5/5)
We started our lunch with couple of mocktails like watermelon based, 'Heaven on Earth' or Mango Bloom but the winner was the very refreshing "Orange Mojito". The orange zest added texture and taste to the drink. Highly Recommended!

Black Pepper Mushrooms and Ginger Honey Potatoes and Shitake Mushrooms
 both the dishes were scrumptious. The speciality chef made sure the spices are balanced and so was the taste. The perfect tangy, sweet, sour, crunchy and spicy dishes were a great choice for appetizers. People liking cantonese food will surely relish these.

Thai Basil Cottage Cheese was next. Tossed in medium spiced, found paneer (cottage cheese) to be bit chewy and it lacked the basil flavour. Otherwise, it was a nice starter.

Dahi ke Kebabs were succulent and melt in mouth. Crisp coating outside with soft and creamy inside. The deep fried dish was deliciously crisp and tasty. It is one of their signatures. Personally, I liked it but have had better than here.

Chef has done justice with the "Veg Galoutis" in the form of Broccoli Galouti Kebab. It is not only scrumptious but healthy too. Loved the perfect texture - just melt in mouth. Liked it!

The crispy fried corn (Indian) was an addictive nibble and paired well with the drink. You can munch it on while waiting for your mains. Corns were deep-fried and then tossed in the rich, sweet, tangy Cantonese sauce. Loved it!

Next was the Tandoori Boat Aloo. The name seemed appealing so thought of giving it a try. Half cut, par-boiled, scooped potatoes were filled with dry-fruits, spiced mashed potatoes and topped with sesame seeds. Loved the concept of the dish but somehow it lacked the marination, smokey flavour and were bit undercooked. If it would have done, the whole dish would have tasted super delicious.

From the Chinese section, we tried Veg Crystal Mushroom Dumpling and Spicy Veg Coriander Dumpling and both were equally scrumptious. The thin outer layer of crystal dumpling was perfectly cooked and the stuffing was delicious too. A must try!

For the desserts, Tarsh has really varied option for Indian desserts ranging from Jalebi, Halwa to Kulfi apart from the regular western dessert. We tried the signature Three Layer Milk Cake but unfortunately it did not hit the mark. Bit too sweet and heavy for my palate. It tasted like kulfi and cake because of the rabri texture. Presentation was on point though. I tried Gulabjamun, Moong Dal Halwa and Jalebi from the buffet and trust me they were super yummy. Nicely made with just the right amount of sweetness.

Overall, it is a nice place for parties, meetings, family lunches or dinner. The Buffet is only for lunch and is total value for money. Do visit and share your experiences in the comment below.
