We were invited to this year old restaurant to try out their new menu and we must say that we were mighty impressed! Sizzle Desi is a venture by Chef Parag Joglekar (ex Barking Deer) who runs this place with lot of enthusiasm.
We visited Sizzle Desi on a Sunday afternoon and it seems like a popular place for families in Thane to enjoy a meal. Chef Joglekar introduced us to the new menu which includes Kebab Sizzlers for the first time along with mocktails. They have also started serving Beers and Wine.
We started off with the Laksa Soup which was not like your regular coconut based soup but was a mildly flavoured clear soup with noodles and veggies, delicious and comforting for the rainy season. Up next, was the Summer Salad – quite average and passable.
Since our server suggested that we try their kebabs, we did and we are glad we did! We were served both the vegetarian and non vegetarian kebabs and the entire selection was great – succulent, perfectly marinated and flavourful- Thumbs up for their Kebabs.
Moving on to what the place is known for –The Sizzlers! Chef Joglekar suggested that we try the Seared Basa topped with fresh Mexican salsa, along with rice, mashed potato, veggies and creamy spinach. This sizzler had its hits and misses – the fish was delicious and so was spinach and the veggies but on the flip side the sizzler was way too sweet for our palate and the mash was grainy! But our next Sizzler totally made us fall in love. The Murg Malvani Sizzler was simply delicious! With this sizzler we went for noodles and French fries. Everything about this sizzler was good; we particularly loved the mildly spicy Murg Malvani gravy on the bed of noodles and the crisp fries. You should totally try this fusion Sizzler and you won’t be disappointed.
We also tried the newly introduced mocktails, The Virgin Mojito which was your regular Mojito and the Brownie shake which was totally sinful, we’re sure it’s going to be a hit amongst the kids.
Overall, Sizzle Desi had its fair share of hits and misses and a little work on the presentation can work wonders. Don’t miss their kebab sizzlers if you drop by.
