Interiors & Ambiance :-

As  seen in the pictures, ON THE ROCKS brings a unique atmosphere of a classy lounge combined with club scene. It is a perfect place to start & finish a night out in comfort & luxury. I have always loved their interiors which is modern & stylish. Be it the white rock shaped chairs or the bar sections. Every corner is designed to give you the feel of partying. The lounge lighting is very impressive. No doubt the place is spacious. They have a VIP lounge facility too, which can be pre booked on request. Specially when you want to take family or friends along and want your private space. Then its perfect for you.

Starters 

Chicken Avocado & Tomato Salad :-

This is one of the simplest dish I have ever tried. Why simple, because as the name suggest it has just three main ingredients Chicken, Avocado & Tomato. I guess all the magic was in the dressing, it was one of the most flavorful  yet light salad dressings I have ever had. Me & my friend who went along  still remember it. It’s a must try when your are in On The Rocks

Honey Glazed Chilly Chicken

I am very found of Thai cuisine. Seeing the Honey glazed chilly chicken on the menu, I couldn’t stop myself to order it. As shown in the picture, chicken was well cooked & crispy from outside. Even the veggies were nice & crisp. In no time we could finish this one, not even leaving the single chunk of it 🙂

Main Course

Grilled Chicken Supreme

We restricted our-self to order one dish for the main course, since we wanted to try out the desert too. I love grills for the main course. After glancing through the menu I decided to go for Grilled Chicken Supreme. Again the Chicken was nicely grilled, crisp from outside & juicy from inside. The chicken was served with the grilled veggies, dollop of creamy mash & a choice of sauce.

Dessert

Chocolate Walnut Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream

The desert was yummy, before I say anything else about this dish. The brownie was intense in chocolate flavor with that little crunch of walnut in between makes the dish the star of the day. I just loved the whole assemble. So, whats so new about this brownie. Its served everywhere with ice cream. What I loved in this one was the intense flavors & the freshness.

Service :-

I may say they do have a dedicated  and friendly staff. Every time I wanted to order, I could find someone around to place an order.  On service part I may rate them 9/10.

Perfect for :-

Night out with family & friends. Or you can just drop by for Dinner only.

What I liked the most :-

  • I liked the food & drinks, menu was designed to take care of different taste buds.
  • Music was rocking, its just not the sound system the DJ’s played well too.
  • Service was excellent & Staff was friendly.
  • They have ample space for parking.
