Strategically located at the Sector 5 of the city, Pour House, the humongous lounge-pub is surely to be a hit with the office-goers of the IT Hub. I dropped by at this place on a Monday night, after office. I generally do not prefer going to Sector 5, because it’s just too far off from everywhere else. But I am happy that I overcame my laziness and went went to Pour House, because of a lot of reasons.
The service here is one of the best that I have seen lately, and special mention must be made of Saikat who took wonderful care of us, throughout the evening. There was never an empty glass, plates were changed after almost every dish and the servers had a very good knowledge of the food they served.
I loved their coffee, and come on, who doesn’t like coffee after office on a gloomy Monday! I walked around the place to check out the entire place – the bar, the dance-floor, the graphiti, the open-air area and realized that the place was literally huge!
Then came the well made hookah and the line of starters. I particularly liked Junglee Masala ka Murg Tikka and the Cocktail Fish Finger. All their food were plated up in wooden batons of sorts, with simple salads and dips and none of them were extra oily. I was specially impressed by their fish preparations, and the Bhuna Zeera ka Mahi Tikka tasted brilliant majorly because of the quality of fish used. For vegetarians my recommendation would be the Audi Rings, which are basically cheesy onion rings.
The desserts here looked spectacular and the taste matched up the expectation created by the look of them. My favourite was the Chocolate Mud Pie with Vanilla Ice-cream, where the salty, toasty base, the fudgy chocolate filling and the creamy scoop of ice-cream created a party in my mouth! The Red Velvet Cake looked brilliant but the frosting was a bit too sugary for my liking. The Rum Chocolate Slice had a good hit of alcohol and is a good option for dark chocolate lovers. And the Mousse-y Dessert in a Jar, with clean layers of chocolate-y components is the perfect thing dig into, any day, any time.
I had an amazing time at the Pour House and would love to go back with my gang, try out their cocktails and dance till our feet are sore, at that quirky neon dance floor, for sure!
P.S. Currently they serve alcohol only on Wednesdays and Weekends.
